CCU Hoops: Chants split Sun Belt twinbill with GSU

Jaylen Shaw moved into 13th place on the Coastal Carolina all-time scoring list with 21 points, but the Chanticleers dropped another conference outing in a 77-66 loss to Georgia Southern.

Shaw’s point total gives him 1,216 total points scored at CCU. He past former CCU greats Kierre Greenwood (2009-13), Robert Dowdell (1987-91) and Brian Penny (1987-91). He has a ways to go before he moves up any further as Howard White (1974-76) finished his career with 1,321 points.

Two old problems that have haunted the Chants during the current four game losing streak have been turnovers and three-point shooting and tonight CCU turned the ball over 15 times and the Eagles were able to score 19 points off those turnovers.

CCU (7-11 / 1-4 SBC) also had another cold night from beyond the three point line, only hitting two of its 19 attempts (10.5%).

While CCU was struggling, the Eagles were not as they knocked down 10 of their 22 three point attempts (45.5%) outscoring the Chants 30-6 on threes.

Zac Cuthbertson scored 15 points and Demario Beck, hampered by fouls most of the night, finished with 11 before fouling out with over nine minutes left in the game.

CCU shot 50 percent from the field in the second half and finished the game shooting 43.3 percent. CCU was able to knock down 12 of its 13 free throws for 92.3 percent.

Tookie Brown scored a game-high 22 points for Georgia Southern, but he had plenty of help from Ike Smith who scored 19 and Montae Glenn who scored 17.

The Chants will host Georgia State Saturday, Jan. 13 at 3:30 p.m.

Women

The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team extended its home winning streak to six games Thursday night as it defeated Georgia Southern, 54-51, at the HTC Center.

Coastal improves to 9-7, 3-2 with its ninth home win of the season. Georgia Southern remains winless in the Sun Belt at 0-5, and falls to 3-13 overall.

The Chants led by as many 13 points in the second half before Georgia Southern went on a 14-3 run over the final minute of the third quarter and first six minutes of the fourth quarter to tie the game. The Eagles even managed to take a brief one-point lead with just over three minutes remaining, but Coastal limited the visitors to a pair of free throws for the remainder of the game while scoring six points to seal the victory.

Jas Adams and DJ Williams led Coastal in the win, scoring 19 and 15 points, respectively. Williams also grabbed nine rebounds to finish just short of her third double-double of the season. Naheria Hamilton pulled in a game-leading 10 rebounds and scored eight points in 22 minutes of action.

Coastal returns to the HTC Center on Saturday to host Georgia State for the Sun Belt Game of the Week on ESPN3. Tip-off is scheduled for 1 p.m.
