SUNBRIGHT, TN (WLAF) – Though Campbell Coach Ernie Clawson did not get the effort he would have liked from his Cougars on Monday at Sunbright, Campbell did get the win; 63-47. Watch the game and all the highlights HERE on demand from WLAF.

Despite being saddled with fouls and sitting the bench for much of the game as a result, John Long lead Campbell with 14 points. Devon Jones, 13, and David Adkins (12) and Adama Sanogo (12) followed closely in the scoring column.

The Cougars improve to 3 & 0 and will next play on Monday night at Oneida. They’ll be right back to action the next night at Hardin Valley Academy. WLAF will have all the live coverage.
