BUIES CREEK, N.C. -- Lorne Merthie scored a career-high 24 points on 9-of-11 shooting and Campbell never trailed while defeating Appalachian State 92-63 on Wednesday night.

Donald Sims led Appalachian (7-6) with 16 points, plus seven assists, and became the 29th player in Mountaineers history to reach 1,000 career points. Jeremi Booth added 15 points and six rebounds.

Campbell opened a 20-6 lead with 12:39 remaining in the first half and led by as many as 21 before a late Mountaineers run pulled them within 48-33 at the intermission.

The Camels scored the first seven points of the second half to effectively put the game out of reach.
