CCU Hoops: Beck hits late basket to lift Chants in OT

Demario Beck only scored four points, but it was his basket with one second left in overtime that gave Coastal Carolina a 56-54 win at Texas State.

The win pushes CCU’s win streak to four consecutive heading to Texas Arlington.

Neither team shot the ball very well as both team’s defenses controlled the pace of the game.

CCU finished the game shooting 34 percent, hitting 19 of their 56 field goals. The Chants only hit seven of their 24 three point field goals and hit 11 of its 14 free throws (79%).

Artur Labinowicz paced the Chanticleers with 14 points. Zac Cuthbertson was able to knock in 12 points to go with his five rebounds.

Jaylen Shaw also hit double digits finishing with 10 points and a team-high four assists.

CCU’s defense held the Bobcats to 33 percent shooting (17-51). After hitting five three point field goals in the first half, CCU’s defense held Texas State to no three’s in the second half and Texas State finished the game hitting five of their 25 three point field goals (20%). They also hit 15 of their 20 free throws.

The Chants (11-13, 5-6 Sun Belt) had a chance to win it in regulation but Shaw’s runner from the right side went in and came out at the horn sending the game into the extra period even at 49.

CCU scored first in overtime with Beck knocking down two free throws to put CCU up 51-49. After a Texas State basket, freshman Tre Brown connected on a three to give the Chants a 54-51 lead with 2:38 left.

Texas State (14-10/ 7-4 Sun Belt) was able to even the score on a free throw and a basket. The Bobcats had possession and were holding for the final shot when they turned the ball over with 15 seconds left. That left the ball in Shaw’s hands once again, but instead of taking the final shot this time he hit a streaking Beck going to the basket for the game winner.

Women

DJ Williams tied her career scoring high of 29 points while collecting her fourth double-double of the season, and Jas Adams added an additional 23 points, but it was not enough as Texas State held off a surging Coastal Carolina team, 78-69, Thursday night at the Strahan Center.

Coastal (11-11, 5-6 SBC) scored 47 points in the second half in its attempt to erase the 24-point deficit it found itself in during the first half. The Chants made it a two-possession game with six minutes remaining, but were outscored by three points for the rest of regulation as the Bobcats fought to stay in front.

Texas State (15-7, 8-3 SBC), which made 14 3-pointers the last time these teams met in December, sunk 12 shots from beyond the arc as it held a double digit lead over Coastal for the majority of the contest. The Bobcats shot 55 percent from the field for the game, including 66 percent in both the first and third quarters.

Williams out-dueled the Sun Belt’s leading scorer, Toshua Leavitt, who had 27 points for Texas State. CCU’s sophomore guard tied for the team lead in rebounds with 10, and had team highs with four steals and three assists.
