Jordan tallies 1,000th point as Lady Chants rout IPFW

ccuwhoops-ajjordan (2)AJ Jordan’s game-leading 21 points in the Chanticleers’ 90-63 win over IPFW Tuesday night at The HTC Center bring her career total to 1,004, making her the 13th student-athlete in Coastal Carolina women’s basketball history to score over 1,000 points in their career.

 

Tuesday’s win puts the Chants at 4-0 on the season, marking just the fifth time in program history that Coastal has won each of its opening four games. IPFW, meanwhile, falls to 2-3.

 

Jordan finished 9-19 from the field and went 3-4 from the line, while grabbing six rebounds and leading all players with four assists.

 

Ced Gibson finished a close second in scoring, as the redshirt sophomore reached 20 points for the first time this season. Alexis Robinson’s 16 points and Anna Vogt’s 15 rounded out Coastal’s double-digit scorers.

 

Robinson completed the game’s only double-double by leading all players with 14 rebounds. Vogt and Alira Mihocic recorded nine boards apiece for the Chants.

 

As a team Coastal shot 48.1 percent from the field compared to IPFW’s 31.7 percent. IPFW finished with 35 fouls on the night, allowing Coastal 53 attempts from the free throw line. The Chants hit 38 of those chances, accounting for 42 percent of their point total.

 

The Chants also held distinct advantages in rebounds (53-26), blocks (5-0) and points in the paint (24-18).

 

Coastal came out hot in the first half, scoring the game’s first 11 points while holding IPFW off the board until the 15:53 mark. After Jordan opened the scoring, a Mihocic steal led to a Gibson 3-pointer to give the Chants a quick 5-0 lead. Another IPFW turnover led to basket by Jordan, followed by two free throws from Robinson. Mihocic once again forced a turnover, and a long jumper from Jordan capped off Coastal’s opening streak.

 

Courtney Ogle’s 3-pointer finally put the Mastodons on the board, and sparked a 12-7 IPFW run over the next four minutes.

 

The Chants countered with an 18-6 run of their own that gave Coastal a 36-21 lead with 5:20 left in the first half. Stephanie Isaacs began the run with back-to-back layups, and Gibson added seven points during that stretch.

 

Coastal tacked on 11 more points before the end of the half, and looked to take a 16-point lead into the locker room. A buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Kamilah Carter, however, made the halftime score 47-34.

 

The Chants’ lead was never in doubt in the second half, as Coastal converted 27 of its 37 free throw attempts. Only 16 of Coastal’s 43 second-half points were scored from the field.

 

The Chants’ defense limited the Mastodons to shooting just 26.5 percent in the second half, while recording two blocks and a steal.

 

Jordan’s 1,000th point came on a fast-break layup with 10:59 remaining in the second half that gave Coastal a 13-point lead.

 

Coastal ends its five-game, season-opening home stand on Saturday, Nov. 29 when the Chants host Marshall at 2 pm at The HTC Center.
