Lady Chants avoid snowout, get blown out by Radford

In a game that was moved up eight hours to avoid an approaching snowstorm in Virginia, Radford scored a 68-50 victory over visiting Coastal Carolina on Thursday.

Alexx Puckett, Angelica Henry and Katelyn Connor each scored in double figures for Coastal Carolina, but it was not enough as Radford had four players post 10-plus point performances of their own to down the visiting Chanticleers  at the Dedmon Center.

Coastal (7-10, 2-5 Big South) was led by Puckett’s career-high 16 points on 6-of-16 from the floor, including 2-of-4 from deep. Henry poured in 13 points on 3-of-4 from the field and 6-of-9 from the line, while Connor chipped in 10 points. The Chants were undone by 24 turnovers that led to 29 Highlander points.

Ashley Buckhannon paced Radford (9-6, 4-2 Big South) with a game-high 22 points, including 15 from 3-point land. Victoria Hamilton and Diani Mason each chipped in 11 for the Highlanders. Sarah Tabb rounded out the Radford scores in double figure with 10 points.

After opening the second half on an 8-4 run and cutting its halftime deficit to seven points, Coastal had a chance to cut the game to two-possessions as Puckett stepped to the line to shoot two at the 15:46 mark. However, Puckett was unable to connect on either and the Highlanders retaliated with a 16-4 run over the next six minutes, putting the game out of reach.

An AJ Jordan 3-pointer briefly slowed the Highlander momentum, but the home squad refused to waiver and went on a 15-7 run, taking a game-high 24-point lead on three different occasions. Coastal finished the game on an 8-2 run courtesy of four free freebies, a Corinne Holland jumper and a Henry layup.
