Ajwan Leaming scored 22 points, including two free throws with 0:15 on the clock, to lift Camden to a 52-49 victory over Delsea tonight in a SJ Group 3 quarterfinal.

Leaming, a 6-5 senior, also collected 13 rebounds and 5 blocks as Camden (16-12), the No. 7 seed, advanced to Friday's semifinals.

The Panthers will host the winner of tonight's game between Woodrow Wilson anhd Central Regional.

Senior forward Thomas Harper added 16 points and six rebounds for Camden.

The Panthers executed down the stretch of close game that featured six lead changes in the fourth quarter.

Camden held Delsea (23-5), the No. 2 seed, scoreless after the Crusaders took a 49-48 lead on a spinning layup by Cedric Elleby with 3:13 on the clock.

Elleby scored 18 with 13 reounds and Trey Parker added 13 with 13 rebounds for Delsea.

Harper gave Camden a 50-49 lead on a put-back with 3:00 to play.

After both teams missed chances, Leaming made both free throws at 0:15. Delsea wasn't able to get off a last-second shot.

"I wasn't riding home sad," Leaming said of his thoughts on the foul line.
