Frostburg wins first

Bellamy, Campbell make big plays late to help Bobcats defeat Southern Virginia, 77-67


FROSTBURG — Senior Aaron Bellamy hit a big three-pointer and Tyler Campbell made a pair of tough layups in the closing minutes to help Frostburg State to a 77-67 win over Southern Virginia on Wednesday night.

The Bobcats picked up their first win of the season behind arguably their most complete game, finishing with four starters in double figures, shooting a season-high 49.2 percent (29-of-59) from the floor, totaling a season-best 77 points and outrebounding the Knights 50-41.

And yet, Frostburg had a tough time putting away a feisty Southern Virginia team looking for their fourth win.

The lead changed hands nine times and the score was tied on four occasions, but the Bobcats emerged from a one-point halftime deficit to lead by 10, 65-55, with 6:40 to play.

Frostburg collected an 11-1 run over the first few minutes of the second half to lead by eight, 54-46, and later put together a 9-1 run to increase its lead to 10 with 6:40 showing on the second half clock.

The Knights (3-7) had one final push and brought their deficit to one, 68-67, with just 2:23 to play.

Campbell and Bellamy answered for the Bobcats as the duo accounted for seven-straight points. Campbell hit a layup at 2:00, Bellamy dropped a deep three-pointer with 1:06 left and Campbell hit a second layup with 44 seconds remaining as Frostburg led 75-67. Two late free throws sealed the 10-point victory.

Despite fouling out with over five minutes to play, James Peters scored a game-high 26 points. He had 20 points in the first half behind four three-pointers. Jabari Kamau posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

However, it was Campbell and Bellamy that sparked the Bobcats down the stretch. Campbell totaled 10 points and grabbed a season-high nine rebounds, while Bellamy had 12 points and dished out a season-high nine assists.

Preston Eaton led Southern Virginia with 21 points, eight rebounds and five steals. Chris Baker scored 19 points while Kenrick Hart added 13.

Frostburg (1-13) travels to Salisbury on Saturday for a 3 p.m. game.
