Adnan Hodzic scored 22 points and Lipscomb ended a two-game losing streak by beating Campbell 81-76 on Thursday night.

The Bisons (15-10, 10-6 Atlantic Sun Conference) won despite Campbell getting career-high scoring performances from Eric Griffin (28 points) and Junard Hartley (20). Lipscomb won its seventh straight in Buies Creek, though only three have come in Pope Center, Campbell's new facility. The Bisons are 15-1 when they score at least 70 points.

Campbell (11-4, 5-10) led 47-38 early in the second half but the Bisons caught them at 53 on Brandon Barnes' free throw with 11:10 to go. Hodzic followed with a layup at the 10:33 mark, and the Bisons led for good.

Barnes and Jordan Burgason each had 12 points for Lipscomb, which beat Campbell for the 14th time in 19 meetings. The Camels, who lost their fifth game in the last six, also got 10 points from Rico Ferguson.
