Wilson, Shaw carry Chants to win over Southern Utah

ccuhoops-5Elijah Wilson scored 23 points and Jaylen Shaw added 20 as Coastal Carolina University defeated Southern Utah 83-68 in the MGM Men Who Speak Up Main Event.

The Chanticleers (2-3) had their best shooting game of the season finishing the game knocking down 56 percent of their shots.

Wilson and Shaw had plenty of scoring help as Artur Labinowicz came off the bench to score a career-high 12 points and Demario Beck added 10.

With his 23 points, Wilson moved past Joseph Harris (2005-10) into ninth place on the CCU all-time scoring list and now as 1,455 points.

The Chants were able to out rebound SUU (1-3) 37-30 with Beck and Labinowicz leading the way with seven rebounds each. Defensively, CCU held the Thunderbirds 20 points below their team average and held SUU to only 37 percent shooting.

The Chanticleers have one more game on this seven-day road trip.  They will play at Wake Forest on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
