Players to Watch
Tony Bethel -- Bethel had a career-high 22 points against East Carolina and he'll look to lock up Athony Atkinson.
Anthony Atkinson -- Sophomore point guard had 18 points against William and Mary. Atkinson was an all-freshman team member last season and he's the spark for Campbell.
Campbell last faced a team ranked in the
Associated Press Top 25 when the Camels
dropped an 86-47 decision at then number-17
Wake Forest on Nov. 25, 2000.
The Camels are coming off a 75-62 win over
William & Mary Tuesday. Campbell jumped to an
11-1 lead and never trailed against the Tribe as
four Camels scored in double figures -- Anthony
Atkinson (18), Diego Aguiar (16), Maurice Latham
(15) and Comerlee Poole (10).
Campbell had the youngest team in the Atlantic Sun
Conference in 2003-04 and should be one of the youngest
again in ‘04-05... Only one senior is on the roster
that includes two juniors (transfers), six sophomores
and five freshmen.
Wolfpack guard Julius Hodge is averaging 18 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists per game. He was named Most Valuable Player of the BCA Invitational.
NC State's shooting 57% from the field after three games while holding their opponents to just 37% shooting.
