BUIES CREEK, N.C., NOV. 24 -- In a game of streaks and late foul shooting, senior guard Rod Gourdine's two free throws with eight seconds remaining lifted Campbell University over Howard University, 81-80, today at Carter Gym.

Gourdine, who scored a career- high 32 points, got the last two when he was fouled after Bison guard Milton Bynum committed his fifth foul on a defensive switch.

Both teams traded late baskets in a close game. Neither team led by more than four points in the last 10 minutes.

Campbell was aided in victory by making its last 16 free throws over the last 9:44 of the game.

Howard guard Milan Brown made a three-point shot with 38 seconds left to give the Bison (0-2) an 81-80 lead.

After the Camels (1-0) took time out with 14 seconds left, Gourdine was fouled driving to the basket. He made both shots, the second after Howard took time out.

"He's our team leader {Gourdine} and we knew he'd hit the free throws," said Campbell guard Jamie Lee.

Howard, with a chance to win, inbounded the ball, but guard Martin Huckaby's last-second shot was off the rim.

"The game didn't come to that play," said Howard Coach Butch Beard. "We were trying to get a good shot."
