While it was all tied up 33-33 at halftime, North Carolina A&T was not quite Campbell's equal in the second half on Saturday. The Aggies fell just short of the Fighting Camels by a score of 64-62.

The loss doesn't tell the whole story though, as several players had good games. One of the most active was Camian Shell, who scored 22 points along with six assists. The team also got some help courtesy of Jalal McKie, who scored 21 points along with eight rebounds.

Meanwhile, William & Mary came into Saturday's game having lost nine straight, but that streak is now in the rearview. They walked away with an 85-73 victory over the Pirates on Saturday. Winning is a bit easier when you drain nine more threes than your opponent, as William & Mary did.

Among those leading the charge was Chase Lowe, who dropped a double-double on 13 points and 13 rebounds. Gabe Dorsey was another key contributor, scoring 19 points along with two steals.

The Aggies dropped their record down to 7-24 with that defeat, which was their seventh straight on the road.
