CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. -- Shooting 51.1 percent from the field and 60.0 percent from the 3-point line, the No. 11 Lindsey Wilson College men's basketball team netted a 71-65 win over No. 20 Campbellsville (Ky.) on Thursday night at the Powell Athletic Center.
It was a balanced scoring effort for the Blue Raiders with junior Kalen Kimberland leading the way with 19 points on two 3-pointers, senior Chase Spreen added 16 points and junior Wesley Hanspard chipped in 11 points to seal the win.
Campbellsville's Cedric Henderson led all scorers with 25 points and nine rebounds and Justin Ennis added 13 points on a pair of threes.
Campbellsville (13-6, 2-5 MSC) couldn't find the bottom of the basket on a consistent basis, ending the game shooting just 38.1 percent from the field and 30.8 percent from the 3-point line.
Lindsey Wilson (14-4, 6-1 MSC) needed all the made baskets it could get as the Tigers dominated the backboards 42-26.
At the start it looked like Campbellsville could run away with it as they led 15-4, but just as quick as it built the lead the Blue Raiders went on a 19-6 run to take the lead at 23-21. The Tigers stuck around and even took a five point lead in the second half, but with 10 minutes to play Lindsey Wilson was rolling, ahead by double figures.
It was a score and foul scene over the last two minutes of the game as Kimberland and Spreen both knocked down late free throws to not let the string of Tiger layups get them back in the game.
Lindsey Wilson returns to action at 3 p.m. CT on Saturday at St. Catharine (Ky.) in St. Catharine, Ky.
