Gibson reaches 1,000-point milestone in win over ULM

ccuwhoops-14Senior point guard Ced Gibson became the 14th student-athlete in Coastal Carolina women’s basketball history to reach 1,000 career points Thursday night as the Chanticleers topped visiting ULM, 75-48, at the HTC Center.

Gibson, who transferred to Coastal after her freshman season at St. John’s, reached the milestone while playing just three seasons in a Chanticleer uniform.

Coastal improves to 11-15, 6-10 with the win and retains its hold on eighth place in the Sun Belt standings. ULM, meanwhile, falls to 5-21, 2-13 to remain at the bottom of the league standings.

Gibson’s 1,000th point came on a long jumper at the 7:22 mark of the fourth quarter. The senior opened the game with eight points in the first quarter on a pair of 3-pointers and a jumper seconds before the buzzer. She was held off the board until the fourth quarter, when she hit back-to-back jumpers to reach the milestone.

Gibson closed the game with 14 points and five assists, her fourth straight game scoring in double figures and dishing out at least five helpers. She is now 11 assists away from tying Nikki Reddick for sixth all-time among Coastal’s assists leaders.

Alexis Robinson finished as the game’s leading scorer with 16 points, and added 12 rebounds for her second straight double-double, and fourth of the season. Kennedy Archer and Naheria Hamilton each contributed 11 points to round out Coastal’s double-digit scorers, and Rachael Gregory finished just shy of her second consecutive double-double after recording nine points and 11 rebounds.

Coastal matched its season high in assists with 20, set on Dec. 2 against Pfeiffer. Archer had six assists to complement Gibson’s five, and Robinson and Gregory each added three.

Coastal’s defense held ULM to shooting 33.3 percent from the field, including a 2-of-16 mark from beyond the arc. The Chants also tallied 12 steals and a trio of blocks.

Coastal’s 45 first-half points and ULM’s 19 first-half points were both season highs and lows, respectively, for the Chants.

Coastal returns to the HTC Center Saturday afternoon to play its final home game of the season against Louisiana. The Chants and Ragin’ Cajuns tip at 1 p.m., and following the game Coastal will honor the members of its senior class.
