Campbell Drops Regular Season Finale at Belmont, 65-56
NASHVILLE, TENN. ? The Campbell University women's basketball team (13-14, 11-9) dropped its final regular season game, 65-56, in Aquinas Gym against Belmont University, Saturday. The Camels trailed 33-26 at the half after a 22-2 run midway through the first stretched the Belmont lead to as many as 16. Campbell whittled the lead back down to seven on a last second rebound and putback by Cromartie as the clock expired. Cromartie tallied nine points and nine rebounds, including five offensive in the opening 20 minutes. Campbell used a 13-6 run to open the second to pull back to tie the game at 39, but two consecutive treys and a field goal from the left wing from senior Candice Mitchell moved the Bruins back ahead 49-41. Campbell never recovered from the eight points the Belmont senior put up on her senior night, and finished the regular season below the .500 mark for just the second time in Head Coach Wanda Watkins' career. The Lady Camels' finished 13-14 in 1995-96. Senior Carrie Emory tied a season-high with a team-best 16 points, while Cromartie posted

BUIES CREEK, N.C. ?

Troy State led 41-40 at the half behind 54 percent (14-26) shooting, including 5-of-10 shots from 3-point range.

Lady Camels Prepare for 2002-03 Campaign
The 2002-03 version of Campbell's women's basketball squad will be vastly different from the 2001-02 team. Gone is a quartet of versatile players who were an integral part of the program for four seasons. April Cromartie, Jarita Crump, Carrie Emory, and Stacey Hinkle are replaced by a group of young players, hungry to carve their niche into the Campbell record books. This year's group of Lady Camels is young and will certainly face growing pains throughout the season. A team featuring only one senior in Jessica Stanley, CU's women's hoops will take the court with five freshmen and five sophomores. The team does return several veteran guards, very solid shooters on the wings, and a very deep - but young - front court. 2002-03 Squad Head Coach Wanda Watkins, entering her 22nd year at the helm of the program, does have several key players returning. Junior Terra Guandolo is the team's leading scorer returning, 4.0 points per

BUIES CREEK, N.C. ? Crystal Boyland's 15-foot jump shot with 12.7 seconds left propelled Florida Atlantic to a 68-67 Atlantic Sun women's basketball victory over Campbell University on Saturday at Carter Gym. Boyland's shot capped a late rally for FAU, which trailed 66-63 with 1:53 remaining. Campbell had an opportunity to win the game, but could not get off a shot after inbounding the ball with 7.3 seconds to play.

She will be a versatile guard that has potential to play point guard or the No. 2 guard,' said Watkins.

She is athletic and full of potential. We look forward to her joining our program in the fall.' Named the 2002 Enloe High School Female Athlete of the Year, Tomlinson led the Triangle Alliance conference in scoring for four years, averaging more than 20 points per contest.

The trio announced their decisions during the first day of the NCAA early signing period. Fowler is currently a senior at Raleigh (N.C.)

State Director of Athletics Lee Fowler, she is a three time All-Cap 6 selection for basketball and four time honoree in volleyball.'Kristin's height, scoring ability on the perimeter, and unselfish play in making others around her better players are all assets we liked. A versatile player, Kristin played all five positions for head coach Dayna Jordan's squad, which will likely make her not only a scoring threat, but give us a strong rebounder at the guard position,' said Watkins. 'She has a good mentality for the game as well as a high level of maturity that is not always present in younger players. She is an excellent student-athlete who will represent us

Cold First Half Shooting Dooms Women's Basketball
ATLANTA, Ga. ? A tentative first half by the Lady Camel offense contributed to a Campbell University (4-7, 2-2) loss, 67-58, at Georgia State, Wednesday. Campbell shot 24.3 percent in the opening half (9-37), while Georgia State exposed the Campbell perimeter defense, sinking five three-point field goals in the opening 20 minutes. GSU's Angelina Miller was 3-for-6 from beyond the arc in the opening half. Campbell tried to counter by going to Atlantic Sun pre-season player of the year April Cromartie. Cromartie and Miller each led her respective squad with 13 points in the first half. Cromartie knocked down four field goals and five of seven free-throw attempts in the opening half. But with Cromartie's 13 points accounting for half of the Lady Camels' 26 points at halftime, head coach Wanda Watkins had to concentrate on getting the rest of the CU offense going and shutting down the GSU perimeter game. Campbell trailed 37-26 at the half, but used an 8-0 run to open the second half to whittle the lead down to three on a Crystal Clary layup with 17:29 left in the game. The Lady Camels also switched to a zone defense, slowing up the GSU offense, which hit 57.1 percent in the opening half. GSU only shot 29.0 percent in the second half.

Cromartie Repeats Atlantic Sun Player of the Year Honors
MACON, GA. ? Senior forward April Cromartie (Garland, N.C./Union) was voted the Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Year for the second consecutive year in a poll of the league coaches, Tuesday. Cromartie led the league in scoring (17.1 ppg) and was second in rebounds (9.4 rpg) and field goal percentage (58.9) in the regular season. She is just 19 points and 11 rebounds shy of tying Campbell's school record for the career records in both categories and is already Campbell's leader with 432 career rebounds. Cromartie is currently eighth in the conference in free-throw percentage (73.2) and 10th with 0.78 blocks per game. Her 21 blocks so far this season is the fifth-highest single season mark in school history and her 51 career blocks puts her third that category in the record book. The senior forward/center is a three-time first team all-conference honoree and a two-time player of the year award winner.

Lady Camels Ready for Atlantic Sun Championship Tournament;
BUIES CREEK, N.C. ? Campbell University Head Coach Wanda Watkins started her team mentally down its path for this week's Atlantic Sun Tournament on the bus in Nashville after the Lady Camels had dropped their regular season finale at Belmont. 'We're facing a team in the tournament that beat twice by a total of five points,' Watkins stated when announcing that the Lady Camels would be the No. 7 seed and would face No. 2 seed Florida Atlantic. Unlike the past two years when the Campbell University women's basketball team has left for the conference championship, the 2002 version is heading to the tournament in a new situation. The No. 1 seed last season, Watkins thinks this year's team is in a much less pressure-packed situation. 'Hopefully we realize that we are in a situation where, unlike last year, we will not have a lot of added pressure,' Head Coach Wanda Watkins said. 'We are also happy we will be playing in the first game, that way we will not be sitting around all day getting nervous.' Watkins realizes that playing a No. 2 seeded team that has already beaten you twice this season may at first appear to be a drawback, but feels that the Lady Camels have been building for this all season

Colwell Leaving Lady Camel Basketball Staff
resign from the Lady Camel basketball staff to pursue opportunities outside of college athletics. 'Campbell University has been my second home since 1985, so leaving was definitely a tough decision for me to make,' Colwell said. 'Not many people are fortunate enough to play and coach at the same school, but I was blessed in that respect. I will always be grateful to Coach Watkins and the administration for giving me that opportunity.' Colwell graduated from Campbell in 1989 and was a four-year letterwinner and a three-year starter for Watkins. She scored 756 career points and competed in three conference championship finals in a Lady Camel uniform, starting on Campbell's 1989 Big South Championship team. Following graduation, the Clinton, N.C. resident served as a graduate assistant before being named an assistant coach on Watkins' staff. This past season was her 10th as an assistant at her alma mater. 'I will miss the basketball aspect, but mostly I will miss the close working relationship of the women's basketball staff and being able to watch our players mature both on and off the court,' Colwell said.
