Coastal blows big lead in comeback win by Rebels

ccuhoop-solemissThe Coastal Carolina men’s basketball team let one get away Thursday night, and it was a whopper.

The Chants (8-3) made six of their first eight shots, including their first five from 3-point range, on the way to 66.7 percent shooting from the floor and 8-of-11 shooting from 3-point range in the first half. The Chanticleers led by as many as 17 and went into halftime leading 41-28.

Sparked by back-to-back 3-pointers from White, Ole Miss opened the second half on an 8-4 run, drawing to within single digits. The Chanticleers pushed the lead back to double digits, and then the Rebels answered with an 18-3 run, taking their first lead of the game, 54-53, with 8:21 left in the game.

The teams traded leads down the stretch, with Ole Miss going ahead for good, 61-60, with 4:47 left after two free throws from White. The Rebels extended the lead to six, 66-60, their largest lead of the game, as they held Coastal Carolina scoreless from the 5:10 mark to the 1:10 mark.

The Chanticleers rallied, taking advantage of two Ole Miss turnovers and going 6-of-7 from the free-throw line, to tie the game at 66-66 with under a minute left. Moody then gave the Rebels a 68-66 lead with two free throws, and then an offensive foul for Coastal Carolina gave the ball back to Ole Miss, after which Summers made one of two free throws to extend the lead to 69-66.  The Rebels hits their free throws down the stretch to preserve the comeback win.

Elijah Wilson and Shivaughn Wiggins had 19 points apiece for the Chants (8-3). Cameron added 15 points off the bench for the Chanticleers, who finished 22-of-43 from the field for a season-high 51.2 shooting percentage. The Chants also connected on a season-high 10 3-pointers with five coming from Wilson.

Coastal Carolina continues its calendar-year ending four-game road swing at Central Arkansas on Sunday, Dec. 21. Tipoff at the Bears’ Farris Center is set for 1:30 p.m. Coastal then breaks for the Christmas holiday before rounding out 2014 with its Big South Conference opener at High Point on Dec. 31.
