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.
