CCU Hoops: Bamba slams Trojans; women fall at horn

Sophomore Amidou Bamba came off the bench to score a career-high 18 points in leading Coastal Carolina to a 72-62 win over Little Rock.

It was a well-balanced attack by the Chanticleers as eight of the nine players that got in the game wound up in the points’ column. Like Bamba, Ajay Sanders came off the bench and scored 11 points, hitting all three of his three point field goals.

Jaylen Shaw continued his run of having solid all-around games. He scored 13 points and once again, he finished with a game-high eight assists while only committing one turnover.

Little Rock (5-17, 2-7 SBC) led 42-41 after a Cameron Corcoran three point field goal with 13:35 left in the game. From there the Chanticleers went on a 16-5 run over the next six minutes to open up a 57-47 lead with 7:32 left in the game, and went on to lead by as many as 15 before settling in for the 10-point victory.

CCU (10-13, 4-6 SBC) has been looking to get the ball inside over the past four games and the shooting percentages have shown. In today’s game CCU shot 50 percent (24-48) from the field, and outscored the visitors 34-16 in the paint.

CCU only took nine three point field goal shots, hitting six (67%). For the second consecutive game, the Chants struggled at the free throw line only shooting 62.1 percent (18-29).

Led by Demario Beck’s seven rebounds and Artur Labinowicz’ six, the Chants out rebounded Little Rock 37-29.

Women

Coastal Carolina’s attempt to hand Little Rock its first loss in Sun Belt play this season fell just short as Ronjanae DeGray hit a jumper with one second remaining to help the Trojans escape the HTC Center with 51-49 win Saturday afternoon.

A game that featured five ties and eight lead changes saw Coastal (11-10, 5-5) take a one point lead with 2:07 remaining following six unanswered points. That lead lasted until Keanna Keys made her way to line with 17 seconds remaining and hit the first shot for Little Rock (12-8, 9-0) to tie the game at 49-49. The second shot missed and went out of bounds off a Coastal player, giving the ball back to the Trojans with 15 seconds left.

DeGray’s jumper from the right side went through with one second left on the clock, not allowing the Chants a quality opportunity to attempt a last-second comeback.

Saturday’s loss is just the fourth for the Chants at home, and marks the first time this season that Coastal has fallen in consecutive games at the HTC Center.

Keys led the Trojans in the winning effort with 14 points and five rebounds. DeGray (13 points) and Monique Townson (10 points) also finished in double figures.

For Coastal, Jas Adams tied Keys for the game high in scoring. Alise Davis provided 11 points, and Naheria Hamilton added 10. DJ Williams led all players with 11 rebounds and six assists, and scored nine points.
