Winthrop Takes The Big South Conference Tournament

You may not know much about Winthrop University. It’s located in Rock Hill, South Carolina (which is actually basically a suburb of Charlotte, North Carolina.  The story to me about this game was how it was basically Chris Clemons of Campbell vs. Keon Johnson of Winthrop.  While Clemons (29pts) might have had the better game, Winthrop ended up getting the better of Campbell winning the game 76-59.  As a bonus here is a highlight of the Quarterfinals game between UNC Asheville and Campbell in which Clemons dropped 51 and single-handedly won the game for them:
