CCU Hoops: Trojans edge Chants; Adams scores 40

Jaylen Shaw’s game-high 18 points were not enough as Coastal Carolina fell to Troy 66-65.

CCU (11-16, 5-9 Sun Belt) led 65-63 after an Amidou Bamba dunk with just under two minutes to play. CCU would not score again, but Troy was able to score three points, with the final point coming on a free throw from Kevin Baker with 22 seconds left.

CCU had a chance at the end, but a Shaw field goal attempt missed the mark and Troy held on for the win.

Both teams shot 43 percent from the field, but the difference was Troy’s ability to knock down 12 three point field goals, while CCU only hit four.

Bamba came off the bench to score 15 points and Artur Labinowicz had 12. Zac Cuthbertson was the fourth Chant to reach double-digits with 12 points.

CCU out rebounded Troy 39-29 and outscored the visitors in the paint 34-14. The Chants also had 25 points from the bench to 21 for Troy and the Chants only had eight turnovers for the game, it was the fewest turnovers this season.

Demario Beck had seven rebounds to lead CCU’s effort and Labinowicz and Shaw had six. Shaw also had four assists and two steals.

Troy’s two leading scorers, Wesley Person (18.8) and Jordan Varnado (17.2) were held far below their average. Person finished the game six points and Varnado had nine.

Women

Jas Adams scored a career high 40 points to lead the Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team to an 84-71 victory over Troy on Thursday at the HTC Center.

Coastal improves to 13-12, 7-7 with the victory, and snapped a six-game winning streak for Troy, which falls to 13-11, 8-5.

Adams became just the second Chanticleer in CCU women’s basketball history to score 40 points in a game, and fell just five points short of tying Andrea Singleton (1985-86) for the program’s single-game record of 45 points. Adams did however set the HTC Center single-game scoring record as she surpassed the previous record of 36 points scored by AJ Jordan in 2014-15.

Adams finished the night 9-of-18 from the field with six 3-pointers, and 16-of-21 at the free-throw line. After scoring just one point in the opening quarter, Adams tallied 18 points in the second. She then added 11 points in the third, and 10 in the fourth. Adams also pulled in 11 rebounds for her second double-double of the season.
