In 21 minutes off the bench, Asadullah had his way with Navy. He scored 24 points, just two off his career high, on a perfect 10-10 shooting and grabbed a game-high eight rebounds. Asadullah did most of his work in the second half with 16 points and six boards.

Adams so close to a triple double
One-third of the No. 5th ranked NAIA Campbellsville (12-0) points scored came from one man as guard Stephaun Adams (185-G-96) tied his career-high with 30 points on the night to help the tigers defeat Carver College 90-53 Friday night. Adams also finished an assist shy of a double-double and recorded a career-high seven steals on the game.
The first half was the scoring half for Adams as he dropped 22 of his 30 points in the opening 20 minutes to help CU lead 44-20 at the break. If CU didn't get his 7-for-11 from the field and 5-for-7 from three-point land, the Tigers would have shot 9-for-28 (32.1%) from the field in the first half. Campbellsville men's basketball team will host Simmons College of Kentucky Monday night at 7pm.
