Lady Chanticleers run wild, wear out Converse College

The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team used 20 steals that led to 32 fast-break points to easily down Converse College 70-43 on Thursday night at The HTC Center.

Junior guard Angelica Henry led the way for the Chanticleer with a career-high 24 points on an impressive 10-of-13 from the field. The Indianapolis, Ind., native also finished with a team-high six rebounds, four assists and a pair of steals. Henry was joined in double figures by Shatia Cole and Katelyn Connor who chipped in 16 and 15 points, respectively.

“Our guards (Angelica Henry and Shatia Cole) played well tonight,” said head coach Alan LeForce. “Angelica had a great game and she showed the type of scoring threat she is capable of being on a consistent basis.”

Coastal Carolina improves to 6-2 (1-0 Big South) and a perfect 5-0 at home with the win, while the loss drops Converse to 0-7 on the season.

After falling behind 4-2 in the opening two minutes the Chanticleers used four straight fast-break layups following Converse turnovers to take a 10-6 lead and control of the game. Coastal then put together a 10-0 run over the ensuing 3:29 to put the game away for good.

The Chanticleers went into the half leading 36-19 with Connor and Henry already showing 11 and 10 points, respectively. The Chants dominated the stat sheet throughout the opening period, scoring 22 points in the paint, 16 points off turnovers, and 21 on fast breaks.

Coastal opened the second half on a 24-6 run over the initial 10:22 of the period to take a 60-29 lead. The run featured each of Kayla Cook’s six points and nine by Cole.

LeForce then turned to his bench for the remainder of the game as the Chants closed out their sixth win of the season on a 9-7 run.

Coastal shot 41.7 percent from the floor for the game, including 14-of-31 (45.2 percent) in the second half as Converse struggled to a 27.3 percentage after shooting a 32.8 clip in its previous game.

Coastal Carolina welcomes perennial power and 14th-ranked North Carolina to The HTC Center on Sunday, Dec. 16. Tipoff is slated for 3 p.m.
