The Camels had trouble getting started on Tuesday, January 22 when they visited Clarkton. The slow start may have played a big role in their 70-48 loss to the Reindeer.

"They came out and hit their first six or seven shots and we missed ours," said Campbell head basketball coach, Joey Kerperien. "We dug a 15-0 hole and just couldn't dig out. We didn't shoot well, but kept battling and played with them the rest of the game until the fourth when we started to gamble and gave up some easy ones on the back side of the press."

The Reindeer won all four quarters, with scores of 19-5, 16-15, 12-11, and 23-17.

Campbell was led by Joey Baggett and Lance Dell, with 14 points each. Baggett hit four-of-five free throws and a pair each of threes and twos. Dell put a pair of free throws together with six two point field goals to amass his score. Chris Vaughn drained a three, two twos, and three bonus shots for 10 points. Matt Goodnight put four points on the board and Austin Wethington and Matt Campbell added two each.

Wethington pulled in three offensive and five defensive rebounds to total eight. Baggett, Wethington, and Dell were each credited with a block. Goodnight, Baggett, and Dell stole twice apiece. Dell recorded four assists. Goodnight caused four turnovers.

The Camels are currently 5-11 on the season and will look to improve their record on Friday, February 1 when they travel to Cooter to face the Wildcats.
