CCU Hoops: Chants suffer sixth straight loss at USA

The Coastal Carolina men’s basketball team suffered their sixth consecutive conference loss Thursday night, falling at South Alabama 60-57.

It was a game which saw the Chanticleers (7-13, 1-6 SBC) lead by four at halftime and held an eight point lead with less than 13 minutes left, but could not hold the lead in the loss.

Demario Beck led CCU’s offensive efforts with 11 points and Zac Cuthbertson added 10, but they were the only two Chants to reach double digits in a game which saw CCU only shot 33 percent from the field.

It was also another bad effort on the team’s three point field goals only making four-of-25 for 16 percent.

It is not that South Alabama (10-9, 3-3 SBC) shot that much better, shooting 39 percent from the field and only hitting five of its 22 three point attempts, but it was at the free throw line where the difference was made. USA hit 17 of its 24 attempts while the Chants could only get to the line and attempt 15 free throws, making 13.

Women

The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team suffered a 68-62 loss at South Alabama on Thursday evening inside the Mitchell Center.

The Chants fell behind by over 20 points in the first half, which proved to be too large of a deficit to overcome despite making it a two-possession game with two minutes remaining.

The Chants fall to 10-8, 4-3 with the loss and remain winless on the road this season. South Alabama improves to 12-5, 5-1.

USA, which entered the contest as the top shooting team in the Sun Belt, finished the game shooting 40 percent from the field. The Jags made 12 3-pointers for the game while holding the Chants to just one.
