FRANKFORT, KY -- Cumberland used a frenzied defensive effort in the second half to overpower Campbellsville 59-46 in Sunday's championship game of the Mid-South Conference women's basketball tournament.
Down eight points at intermission, the No. 6-ranked CU women outscored Campbellsville 39-18 over the final 20 minutes -- improving to 30-2 headed into the NAIA Championships March 13.
"Our kids did a tremendous job with the halfcourt defense," said Coach Jeremy Lewis. "We were in this position twice before in this tournament -- down at halftime. Our kids were comfortable and knew what had to be done."
