Men's and Women's Basketball Journey to Campbellsville

By Joel Snyder

The Battle of Highway 55 is renewed for what is sure to be another exciting chapter as the Lindsey Wilson men and women's basketball teams venture north to visit Campbellsville University.

The women tip-off the doubleheader at 4:30pmCT, followed by the men at 7pmCT. Live stats and video will be available. (In-person viewing may be limited. Please see Campbellsville University's web site for attendance protocols.)



The Campbellsville women (11-1, 7-1 MSC) enter Thursday evening as the number one team in the NAIA. Despite this, the Tigers saw their perfect season snapped at the hands of No. 4 Thomas More on Monday.

Sammy Rogers notched 21 points against the Saints. She also snagged a season-high nine rebounds while picking up two steals. Not only was Monday's effort the fifth 20-point performance of the season for Rogers, the senior has scored 10 or more points in all 12 games for Campbellsville.

As a team, the Tigers lead the nation in assists per game (21.5) while simultaneously sporting top 10 rankings in five additional statistical categories.

Lindsey Wilson (15-3, 8-3 MSC) are winners of each of the last three contests, including an impressive 85-61 handling of Martin Methodist (Tenn.) on Monday.

Reagan Turner soared into second on the program's all-time scoring list with a game-high 22 points and five assists against the Redhawks. The senior is also the second leading scorer in the Mid-South, boasting 22.4 points per outing.

Fellow senior Bree Glover, who leads the conference in rebounds per game (10.8), cashed in on her sixth double-double of the season with 10 points and 16 rebounds on Monday evening. Furthermore, Glover paces the Blue Raiders in steals per game (1.7) and blocks per contest (2.4).

Campbellsville leads the all-time series 58-20. The Blue Raiders last win in the series came back on February 2, 2017 at the Biggers Sports Center.

The Campbellsville men (7-11, 5-10 MSC) open their February schedule after losing 8 of 10 in January. The Tigers did, however, secure a 90-76 win over Lindsey Wilson on January 2.

Taiveyhon Mason's 20.1 points per game is third most in the Mid-South. He also heads the team in assists per game (4.3) and steals per game (2.0). Mason's teammate, Ryan Batte sports the conference's second-best field goal percentage (.597).

On the other side, the Blue Raiders (5-11, 3-10 MSC) have been off the hardwood for a week after completing the season sweep of Bethel (Tenn.).

Josh Smith turned in a career-performance, leading all scorers with 28 points while also hauling in nine rebounds.

Lindsey Wilson is led up Highway 55 by leading scorer, Elijah Jordan (16.0). The junior also tops the team in steals per outing (1.4).

Colen Gaynor has wiped a team-best 7.4 rebounds off the glass, while also swatting away 0.4 blocks per game. Dropping dimes for the Blue Raiders is Ryan Friday, whose 34 total assists are good for a team-high average of 2.3.

The Tigers hold a 41-31 edge in the all-time series. Lindsey Wilson's most recent win against their highway foe came back on December 7, 2019 in Columbia.
