Coastal men, women place two each on All-BSC teams

ccuhoops-0whiteCoastal Carolina University men’s basketball student-athletes Warren Gillis, Josh Cameron and Tristian Curtis were awarded honors by the Big South Conference, the league announced on Monday. Gillis was tabbed All-Big South Conference Second Team and Cameron was named Honorable Mention All-Big South, while Curtis earned All-Academic Team honor.

For the CCU women, AJ Jordan and Jas Adams were among those to be named All-Big South selections. Jordan was voted first team All-Big South by the league’s head coaches and was also included on the All-Academic Team, while Adams was named a member of the All-Freshman team.

Gillis, a senior, earned his second consecutive all-conference selection. During the regular season, he ranked 15th in the conference in scoring (13.0 ppg.), fourth in free throw percentage (.856), ninth in steals (1.40 spg.) and sixth in assists (3.03 apg.). Gillis, the reigning Big South Tournament MVP, has scored in double-figures 24 times this season and has recorded a pair of 20-point games. He currently ranks 11th on the CCU all-time scoring list and second in career games played.

Cameron, also a senior, led Coastal in scoring and ranked 11th in the conference with his 13.2 points per game average. Cameron played the sixth man role for much of the season before joining the starting lineup for the first time against Campbell on Feb. 19. He ranks eighth in the Big South in free throw percentage (.743), and ninth in 3-pointers per game (2.07). Cameron has notched 22 double-digit scoring efforts this season, including season-high 22 point efforts at both UCLA and Auburn.

Curtis, a junior, carries a 3.50 GPA as an exercise and sport science major. He ended the regular season tied for 10th in the conference in overall rebounding (5.8 rpg.) and tied for fifth in offensive rebounds per game (2.52 orpg). He is seventh on the CCU squad in scoring (4.6 ppg.).

Jordan, who was named first team all-conference after the 2013-14 season, becomes the first Chanticleer to earn the honor in consecutive seasons since Nikki Reddick was voted first team three straight years from 2001-04. The senior guard from Coalfield, Tenn., closed the regular season averaging a career-high 17.0 points, and 18.5 points against conference opponents, to claim the Big South’s scoring title. Her 201 made field goals additionally made her the conference’s leader in the category for the second straight season. Jordan, a communications major with a 3.5 GPA, made the All-Academic Team for the second straight season.

Adams, a freshman guard from Winston-Salem, N.C., earned nine starts and played in 29 games during her first season in a Chanticleer uniform. Her 8.8 points per game this season made her Coastal’s fourth-leading scorer, but she elevated her play once Coastal’s conference schedule began, and averaged 10.4 points per game to rank 22nd in the league in scoring. Adams finished in double figures 11 times in her 20 Big South appearances and had a career-high 23 points in Coastal’s win over Winthrop on Jan. 17.
