No. 3 Drury outlasts No. 13 Livingstone in battle of unbeaten teams

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Cameron Adams posted career highs of 26 points and 14 boards and Kameron Bundy added 22 points as nationally third-ranked Drury outlasted No. 13 Livingstone 81-80 Wednesday in the Cruzin' Classic.

Coach Steve Hesser's Panthers won their 31st consecutive game to improve to 8-0 on the season, while Livingstone's Blue Bears lost for the first time in seven games in one of the wilder finishes for a DU contest in years. Each time Drury would seemingly have the ending in hand, the Blue Bears would find a way to keep it interesting in a game that saw the Panthers leading by 8 to 10 points for the majority of the second half.

Ian Carter (12 points) and Drake Patterson (11 points) joined Adams and Bundy in double-figures for the Panthers, who shot 53 percent from the field (31 of 59) while limiting Livingstone to 42 percent (28 of 67). Adams, who led the Panthers in FG percentage (.710) coming in, hit 9 of 13 shots to help him top his previous career high of 22 points set just two games ago against Missouri Science & Technology. His 14 boards eclipsed his old mark of 11 set against Central Oklahoma his sophomore season.

No. 7 Indiana (Pa.) 77, Shippensburg 46

INDIANA, Pa. -- Five Crimson Hawks finished the game in double figures, as the nation's seventh-ranked team defeated Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference East rival Shippensburg 77-46 on Wednesday night.
