Fifth year Lady Cougar Head Coach Brad Honeycutt said, “It doesn’t get much better than Campbell versus Anderson for the right to play for the tourney title. We’ll be playing our biggest geographical rival in prime time.” He adds, “Our players would’ve been prepared to play any team Saturday night, but when it is AC, there is a little extra adrenaline pumping every trip down the court.”
