ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) Chris Clemons scored a school and conference record 51 points to lead seventh-seeded Campbell to an 81-79 upset over co-champion UNC Asheville in the quarterfinals of the Big South tournament on Thursday.
Clemons was 18 of 32 from the floor, including 8 of 14 from 3-point range, and made 7 of 8 free throws to match the NCAA Division I season best. Mike Daum of South Dakota State had 51 on Feb. 18 and there have been two 50-point games.
"My teammates did a good job of finding me in open areas," Clemons, whose previous high was 37, said. "I created a little for myself, but my teammates were very unselfish today getting me the ball and putting me in great positions to score."
