CCU’s recent woes continue in overtime loss to Camels

Coastal Carolina suffered its third loss in its last four games and lost its first conference game of the season in Monday night’s 70-65 overtime defeat at Campbell.

The Chanticleers committed a season-high 20 turnovers to have their record-tying road conference winning streak snapped. They lost a league game on the road for first time since Feb. 11, 2010 at High Point. Coastal was tied for the Big South record with 11 consecutive road wins.

Coastal (10-4, 3-1) trailed by five points with 2:04 left in the game but a jumper by Chris Gradnigo pulled the Chants within three. After a Trey Freeman free throw pushed the Campbell lead to four, Gradnigo was sent to the line where he cut the deficit to two with 1:34 remaining.

After each team turned it over, Anthony Raffa stole the ball at half court and made a layup to knot the game at 62 apiece with 26 seconds left. Campbell chose not to call a timeout and with four seconds left in regulation, Darren White had a jumper blocked by Kierre Greenwood who grabbed the rebound as time expired.

After taking a one point lead in overtime, the Chanticleers went 0-of-7 from the field as Campbell (9-6, 3-0) outscored Coastal 8-3 to break a five-game losing streak, remaining undefeated in the Big South.

CCU jumped out to an early 10-2 lead at the 15:00 mark of the first period. Coastal led 17-16 at the 10:25 mark but were held without a field goal for 6:45 as Campbell went on a 10-2 run including two of its four 3-pointers, to build a seven-point lead.

After leading by 10 at the half, Campbell built its largest lead of the game, 41-29 at the 17:31 mark of the second half. Coastal went on a 16-2 run, including eight straight points from Anthony Raffa to take its first lead since the 10:25 mark of the first half, 45-43. Coastal would lead 54-51 after Greenwood made a pair of free throws at the 7:18 mark.

Both teams struggled from long range with Campbell going 4-of-18 (22.2%) and Coastal finishing 4-of-17 (23.5%) from beyond the arc. After shooting 9-of-24 from the field in the first half, Coastal opened the half 11-of-15 (73.3%), finishing the half 14-of-22 (63.6%)

Each team had four players in double-figures led Trey Freeman who scored a game-high 20 points on 9-of-15 shooting. Raffa led the Chanticleers with 18 points, six rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Danny Nieman led all players with a career-high nine rebounds while dishing out six assists without a turnover in 39 minutes.

Coastal completes its three-game road swing when they travel to Charleston Southern on Saturday. Tip-off is scheduled for 5:30 p.m.
