Beck’s double-double lifts CCU to doubleheader split

ccuhoops-20dunkDemario Beck had 18 points and 10 rebounds to lead Coastal Carolina to an 88-59 win over Methodist University.

It was Beck’s first double-double of the season and he became the third Chanticleer to record the feat this season. Beck was joined in double digits as Elijah Wilson scored 16 and Jaylen Shaw added 13.

Wilson took another step up the career-scoring leaderboard by moving into fifth place and he now has 1,502 career points.  He becomes only the fifth player in CCU history to reach 1,500 points.

The Chants (3-5) had a season-high 18 assists on their 32 field goals.  Shaw had six to lead the passing and Colton Ray-St Cyr added five.

All 13 players saw significant time on the floor as the Chanticleers led by as many as 35 points in the second half. Eleven of the players scored while Coastal shot 46 percent from the field for the game.  CCU hit 11 three point field goals and hit 36 percent of those and also hit 13 of its 17 free throws for 77 percent.

The Chants defense held the visitors to 35 percent shooting for the game and kept the Monarchs (1-5) three point shooters in check as they only managed to hit three of their 23 attempts (13%).

Davion Ayabarreno was the lone Monarch to reach double digits scoring 13 for the game.

Coastal shot 50 percent in the opening 20 minutes, including knocking down eight of its 19 three point attempts on its way to the locker room with a 49-20 lead.

Wilson had 14 points and Beck added 10 in the first half.  CCU also hit all 11 of its free throws and added 11 assists on the 15 first half field goals.

CCU’s defense held the visiting Monarchs to 18 percent shooting (6-33) with Ayabarreno leading the way with seven first half points.

The Chanticleers will play game three of the current five-game home stand when they host UNC Asheville Saturday at 7 p.m.

* Catawba 63, CCU (women) 58: The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team faced its first home loss of the season Wednesday night, falling to Catawba at the HTC Center.

The loss drops the Chanticleers to 2-3 on the season while the Indians improve to 5-2. Wednesday’s loss also snapped the Chants’ six-game winning streak against nonconference opponents at the HTC Center.

Catawba held a slim advantage in field goal shooting percentage (35.6 – 34.4) and hit 16 of 18 attempts from the line as the Chants were called for 23 personal fouls.

The game featured eight ties and nine lead changes as neither side managed to take more than a seven-point advantage throughout.

The score was evened for the final time at 6:18 of the fourth quarter after Ced Gibson hit a 3-pointer, Coastal’s last made field goal of the game. The Chants managed just four free throws for the remainder of contest, and Catawba’s Bri Johnson led the Indians down the final stretch with six points.

Johnson finished as the game’s leading scorer with 26 points, making 7-of-15 from the floor and sinking all 10 free throw attempts. Terri Rogers added 19 points and 11 rebounds for Catawba.

Rachael Gregory double-doubled for the second straight game, scoring 14 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. Gibson led the Chants with 16 points, and Alexis Robinson added eight points and 10 rebounds.

Coastal returns to the HTC Center Friday night to host Pfeiffer for a 7 p.m. tipoff.
