Jaylen Shaw had an off-night shooting the ball finishing with nine points. He did have a game-high eight assists and two steals.

Appalachian State was also able to out rebound the Chants 35-32 with 11 of those coming on the offensive end which led to eight second chance points.

Turnovers also contributed to the loss as CCU turned the ball over 19 times. The visitors were able to turn those turnovers into 23 points.

Coastal finished the game shooting 45 percent from the field and hit seven three point field goals in 20 attempts (35%). The Chants shot 19 free throws hitting 13.

Women

The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team won its second overtime game of the season at the HTC Center on Saturday, defeating Appalachian State 73-68.

Coastal (12-12, 6-7) led for over 40 minutes of game time, but App State (6-18, 4-9) forced overtime on LaPresha Stanley’s game-tying shot with 2.8 seconds remaining in regulation. The lead changed hands five times during the overtime period before the Chants scored seven unanswered points to close out the game.

The victory snaps a four-game losing streak for Coastal and keeps the Chants in eighth place in the Sun Belt, one spot ahead of ninth-place App State. Coastal is also now 2-0 in overtime games this season. The Chants previously defeated Fort Wayne in overtime at the HTC Center on Dec. 4.

Jas Adams led the game scoring 29 points, tying her career high. Her efforts bring her career total to 1,052 points, moving her into 12th place among Coastal’s all-time leading scorers.
