BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) — Al’Lonzo Coleman matched his career high with 29 points and grabbed 12 rebounds as Presbyterian edged Campbell 69-67 Saturday to win its second straight game after a seven-game skid.

There were nine ties, eight in the second half after the Camels took a six-point lead with 19:31 remaining.

The Blue Hose (10-13, 4-9 Big South Conference) didn’t post their first lead until Khalid Mutakabbir’s jumper with 10:40 to go made it 51-49.

Campbell (15-11, 9-5) , which beat Presbyterian 77-65 on Jan. 7, regained the advantage on Darren White’s three-point play to make it 60-58 with 5:16 left. After four more lead changes, Josh Johnson’s 3-pointer pushed Presbyterian ahead for good at 66-64.

Trey Freeman, who led the Camels with 19 points, hit a 3 to trim the lead to one with 1:25 to go, then Coleman made 1 of 2 free throws to seal it with 3 seconds left.
