Coastal hosts Gamecocks, Big South tourney in 2014

ccuvolley-5blockThe 2014 Coastal Carolina University volleyball schedule features 12 home contests including a six-match tournament inside the HTC Center.

Coastal’s final non-conference match is against in-state rival and SEC member South Carolina. The Gamecocks will travel to Conway for a match Tues., Oct. 21, at 6 p.m. CCU will also serve as host of the 2014 Big South Conference Volleyball Championship.

Four of CCU’s opponents advanced to the NCAA Tournament a season ago including College of Charleston, Fairfield, Jacksonville and reigning Big South Champions, Radford. CCU will also face members from the SEC and the ACC.

The Chants ended last season with a 19-12 record and advanced to the Big South Conference Championship match where they fell to Radford. The Chants were also 6-1 at home against BSC opponents last season.

CCU opens up the season with three straight tournaments. The first is Aug. 29-30 as the Chanticleers travel up the coast to UNC Wilmington’s season-opening tournament. The Chants will open play against UNCW on Friday, Aug. 29, at 2 p.m. CCU will then take on Eastern Washington and Fairfield on Saturday.

Coastal’s next test will come at the Jacksonville Invitational which is a tournament co-hosted by Jacksonville University and the University of North Florida. The event runs Sept. 5-6, with CCU taking on Florida Atlantic and co-host Jacksonville on Friday and co-host North Florida on Saturday.

The final of three season-opening tournaments takes place Sept. 12-13 on the campus of Coastal Carolina inside the HTC Center. The Chanticleers will welcome the University of Tennessee, Kennesaw State University and Loyola University Maryland. The fans’ first opportunity to see the Chanticleers in action at home will be Friday, Sept. 12, at 11 a.m. as CCU takes on Loyola. Coastal will return to the court that evening at 7 p.m. to face Kennesaw State. CCU’s final match of the weekend will take place on Saturday at 1 p.m. as the Chants face SEC member Tennessee.

Just three days later, CCU will welcome in College of Charleston for a non-conference match on Tues., Sept. 16, at 7 p.m. The Chanticleers final regular season tournament will come the following weekend as the Chants head to N.C. State Sept. 19-20. Coastal will take on the host Wolfpack at 7 p.m. Friday evening before playing Howard and William & Mary on Saturday.

CCU’s Big South Conference opener takes place Sept. 26 as the Chants host Winthrop. The Chants play 14 BSC matches including seven at home. The Chants home conference schedule features matches against Winthrop (Sept. 26), Presbyterian (Sept. 27), Radford (Oct. 17), Liberty (Oct. 18), Charleston Southern (Nov. 7), Campbell (Nov. 13) and High Point (Nov. 15).

The Chanticleers will also serve as hosts of the 2014 Big South Conference Championship. The matches will take place Nov. 20, 21 and 23.
