JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – For the first time since the 2020-2021 season, the Anderson County Mavericks made a trip from exit 122 to exit 134 to battle against your Cougars. Campbell was in the midst of a four game losing streak, and was looking to get back in the winning column against the 2 and 4 Anderson County Mavericks.

Watch Clayton Carroll’s and Josh Parker’s call of the Lady Cougars’ and Cougars’ games HERE on demand over WLAF.

It was a roller coaster of a first quarter. At the end of the first, the Mavericks led the Orange-and-Blue by a score of 15-13. 

With a minute to go in the first half, Campbell trailed the Mavs by three. Anderson County then exploded for a 6-0 run, leading the Cougars 31-22 at half.

After a heated 3rd quarter that involved a Maverick technical foul, the Cougars still trailed by nine, 47-38. No matter what run Campbell would have , Anderson would answer right back.

In the fourth, Anderson would add to their lead, defeating the Cougars 63- 50. 

With the loss, Campbell drops its fifth game in a row, after starting the year 3 and 0.

Leading the scoring column for the Orange-and-blue was Luke Browning with 19 points. Gavin Cox racked up 11 points. The identical Day twins, Jordan and Logan, had identical scoring numbers with 8 apiece. Tyler Kitts and Gabe St. John rounded out the scoring column with 2.

The next broadcast of Campbell basketball is Tuesday night at home for the first district game of the season. The Orange-and-Blue battle the Red Devils of Halls.
