Freeman nets 17, Campbell defeats Radford 69-60

BUIES CREEK, N.C. (AP) Trey Freeman netted 17 points and Campbell snapped Radford's two-game winning streak in a 69-60 Big South Conference victory Wednesday night.

Darian Hooker added 15 points for the Camels (10-10, 5-1), who are still without leading scorer Darren White (knee). The win was Campbell's seventh in its past eight games.

Radford's R.J. Price, who hit a 30-foot, game-winning buzzer-beater in the Highlanders' (9-11, 3-3) last game and scored 30 points against Longwood in the game before, hit 5 of 11 3-pointers en route to 22 points Wednesday. Javonte Green added 13 points and a game-high eight rebounds for Radford.

The Highlanders entered leading the Big South with 9.8 steals per game, but the Camels did most of the pick-pocketing Wednesday. Campell collected 12 steals to Radford's eight, with Hooker and Marvelle Harris each recording three.

Campbell used an early 9-0 run for a 21-12 advantage and led 35-20 at halftime.

Hoyas win NCAA Men’s College Cup in penalty kick shoot out

It was a showdown like no other in Cary, North Carolina on Sunday night.

Right down to the wire. 

After two scoreless 10 minute overtimes, it all came down to a seven round penalty kick shootout where a save by Georgetown goalkeeper Tomas Romero won it all for the Hoyas, 7-6.

Romero stopped Virginia's Axel Gunnarsson to give the Hoyas their first NCAA men’s soccer championship. 

After scoring 17 goals, Georgetown University won the 2019 Men’s College Cup National Champions over UVA.

It was a very back and forth battle between the two teams. 

Virginia jumped out on top. In the 10th minute, Junior midfielder Joe Bell scored the first goal and his 7th goal this season putting Virginia ahead 1-0. 

Junior midfielder Paul Rothrock responded with an unassisted goal in the 16th minute, putting Georgetown on the board and tying the game 1-1.

In the 22nd minute, Georgetown Freshman Daniel Wu had a set piece, scoring his first goal of the season and extending the Hoyas lead 2-1. 

Later in the 58th Daniel Steedman gave the Cavaliers a spark tying it up 2-2. 

It looked as if the Hoyas had it in the bag when Derek Dodson broke the tie in the 81st minute putting Georgetown on top 3-2 but that didn't last very long. 

Inside five minutes to go in regulation time, Daryl Dike attempted a header which was deflected but followed through with his own rebound regaining the tie 3-3 for UVA.

That is where things got interesting.

After a hard fought game, two ovetimes and a penalty kick shoot out the Hoyas would go on to take the title over the Cavaliers winning 7-6.
