David Robertson scores 21, Andrew Rowsey adds 19; UNC Asheville holds off Campbell, 69-65


BUIES CREEK, North Carolina — David Robertson scored 18 of his 21 in the second half, and Andrew Rowsey added 19 points, to lead UNC Asheville to a 69-65 win over Campbell on Saturday.

Jaleel Roberts scored a career-high 14, on 7-of-7 shooting, and tied a career-high with 12 rebounds for Asheville (8-8, 4-1 Big South). The senior recorded his second-career double-double; the first coming in a win against UNC Charlotte on Nov. 30, when he had 12 rebounds and 10 blocked shots.

Campbell (7-12, 1-5) led 40-36 with 15:20 left, before Robertson scored 11-straight Bulldogs' points during a 15-4 run which gave Asheville a 51-44 advantage 5 minutes later.

A 3-pointer by Reco McCarter and a layup by D.J. Mason cut Campbell's deficit to 55-54 with 6:26 remaining but the Camels would get no closer.

Robertson scored five during an 8-1 run over the next 4 minutes to seal it.

Curtis Phillips led Campbell with 16 points.
