CAMPBELLSVILLE, KY - (Tue 29 Nov 2016) - In its final tune up before entering conference play, Campbellsville blistered the nets tonight in the Powell Athletic Center taking down Midway University by 30 points, 92-62.

Zach Perry took advantage of 23 minutes of playing time to lead Campbellsville with 15 points. Perry finished hitting 5-of-9 from the 3-point line and was one of three Tigers to knock down multiple triples.

As a team, the Tigers were one fire from deep knocking down 13-of-31 (42 percent). Overall from the floor, CU hit 51 percent (33-of-65) with 22 of those baskets coming off assists.

In addition to Perry, five other Tigers filled up the stat sheet. Erik Kinney pitched in 14 points and a team-high nine rebounds. Jalen Coates and Antonio Chapman both finished with 12 points, while Chapman had five rebounds. Coates finished with four boards and four assists, while Shawn Johnson registered 11 points and eight rebounds. Lastly, Elliott Young hit two Edward Jones triples and finished with 10 points.

Statistically speaking, the best 3-point shooter in the conference, Hagen Tyler, only hit 1-of-2 from deep tonight but got others involved by matching his career-high five assists to lead CU.

Like many games in the friendly confines of Powell Athletic Center, the Tigers started their night off with a triple. Chapman drilled the first of his four 3-pointers to start the contest and the Tigers ended up nailing three more in the first three-plus minutes to set the tone and take a 16-4 lead.

Once again, Kinney brought the crowd to its feet with another highlight slam in the first half with 5:40 left. Tyler found Kinney on a back-door cut for one of his four dunks and two of his 14 points.

Campbellsville took its first 20-point lead with 4:24 to play in the first half, as Perry found Johnson for two of his 10 points.

In the first half, Campbellsville finished hitting 53 percent from deep (9-of-17), as Perry drilled three of his five triples in the first period.

The Tigers took a 50-30 lead at the halftime intermission.

The second stanza started exactly how the first did - an Antonio Chapman 3-pointer. With the big lead, Campbellsville cooled off a bit from deep in the second period (only hitting four triples), but the Tigers took advantage at the free throw line hitting 12-of-16.

CU only forced 13 turnovers tonight, but capitalized on almost half, by scoring 17 points off those Midway miscues.

To cap off the night, Campbellsville went on a 12-1 run from the 5:08 mark to 1:36 left and Midway couldn't find an answer.

Leading the Eagles was Brandon Johnson with 13 points, while Krizell Mitchell pitched in 11 and Brandon Maxwell had 10. Tyler Smothers led all rebounders with 10 boards, while Gerry Milligan had a game-high seven assists.
