BUIES CREEK, N.C. -- Tavares Speaks scored a career-high 28 points, and Liberty withstood a late Campbell rally to earn an 82-80 Big South Conference victory Wednesday.
The Flames (9-17, 5-7) led 73-60 with 6:39 to go and by 10 with less than 5 minutes to play before the Camels closed the game with an 11-3 run but fell short.
Trailing 81-73 with 2:45 remaining, Freeman made a layup, a jumper and a 3-pointer to close the gap to 82-80 with 50 seconds remaining. Campbell had the ball with 11 seconds left, but Hooker and Leonard missed from in close as time ran out.
Definitely not inspired by any popular TV shows, we looked up the best moments a team came back from the dead.
The guard prospect was one of the top players at the annual Spiece Run N Slam event.
SMU has signed a second player from Australia, 6-foot-11 forward Harry Froling, to a national letter of intent. The Mustangs previously signed guard Tom Wilson from Australia.
