Baron and Campbell not enough

Men’s basketball loses a tough one to Camosun

By Courtnie Martin, Sports Reporter

The men’s basketball team walked into Camosun’s gym seated fifth and hungry for a victory. However, Camosun had other plans for the visitors’ Valentine’s Day evening.

“We had a really bad first quarter, but we picked it up and came back in the fourth. The last quarter was by far our best, we crawled back into the game but just couldn’t grind out the win,” said Grant Campbell.

While Camosun dominated the first quarter, Douglas cleaned up in the second thanks to some stellar performances from Andrew Baron and Campbell—who put up 20 points and nine rebounds, and 32 points respectively.

After a forgettable third quarter, the Royals were down double-digits heading into the fourth, and that’s when they decided to fight back. They were finding the net and were coming together defensively, but there just wasn’t enough time left on the clock for a comeback. The Royals were defeated by Camosun by a final score of 91-83

Campbell commented on his feelings of being a scoring threat in this league as a rookie after the game: “I feel good and excited. My teammates and coaches have helped me so much and I can’t thank them enough—especially the vets. Andrew [Baron] has been a huge supporter and has helped me elevate my game.”
