Chants shoot themselves in the foot in loss to Bobcats

ccuhoops-0driveCoastal Carolina committed 18 turnovers that led to 21 points for Texas State in a close 52-50 loss to the Bobcats at the HTC Center on Saturday.

Even with all the turnovers the Chanticleers (9-12, 4-4 Sun Belt) still had a chance to win the game, but they missed three free throws in the final minutes of the game to drop their third straight.

Demario Beck scored 12 points and secured his fourth double-double of the season with 11 rebounds.  His basket with two minutes left gave the Chants a 49-48 lead.  He was fouled on the play, but missed the free throw which could have given the Chants a two-point lead.

After a field goal from TSU (12-8, 5-3 Sun Belt) gave the Bobcats a 50-49 lead, the Chants Shivaughn Wiggins made one of two free throws to even the score at 50.

From there TSU’s Nijal Pearon hit a jumper with 17 seconds left for the two-point lead which turned out to be the final score of the game.

CCU shot 38 percent from the field and held TSU to 34 percent.  Elijah Wilson led the way with 16 points and Wiggins added 10.

CCU was out rebounded 39-34, which is the second consecutive game they have been out rebounded.  CCU was only six-of-10 from the free throw line while TSU hit 10 of its 14 attempts.

The Chants will be back home Monday night when they play host to Texas-Arlington.  Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
