“Carter saw the train coming but just could not get off the track.” That’s how the Voice of the Lady Cougars Josh Parker described the Hornets dilemma on Tuesday night. Campbell won 71 to 33 at Williams Gym.
The 38-point win was the 20th victory of the year for the Lady Cougars against two losses. It also marks the 100th win for fifth-year Lady Cougar Head Coach Brad Honeycutt. (pictured above with Parker)
