CCU Hoops: Chants claim second straight SBC win

Artur Labinowicz had his first collegiate double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds in leading Coastal Carolina to a 62-47 win over Arkansas State, giving the Chanticleers their second consecutive win.

It was a game which saw the CCU defense have one of its best outings of the season holding the Redwolves to a 25 percent (17-68) shooting percentage. A-State (7-14, 2-6 SBC) did manage to hit eight three point field goals, but it took 38 attempts to hit that many.

CCU (9-13, 3-6 SBC) only led by three at halftime, but broke the game open in the second half shooting 52 percent from the field, including hitting four of its nine three point field goals.

Labinowicz’ 17 was a game-high and led the CCU offense which saw three other players reach double digits. Jaylen Shaw had 13 points, all coming in the second half. He also had a game-high eight assists.

Zac Cuthbertson only took nine shots in the game, but finished with 12 points and Amidou Bamba came off the bench to score 10 points and grab eight rebounds.

CCU finished the game shooting 41 percent for the game and out rebounded the visitors 55-34.

Women

The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team saw its seven-game home winning streak come to an end Thursday night as visiting Arkansas State defeated the Chants, 70-63, at the HTC Center.

Four players scored in double figures for Coastal (11-9, 5-4), including Naheria Hamilton collecting her fourth double-double of the season, but it was not enough to overcome Arkansas State (10-9, 5-3) and the 23 points of Jada Ford.

Coastal led for 25:15 of the game and went in front by as many as 13 points in the first half. The Chants also held a lead of four points at the beginning of the fourth quarter, but A-State overtook the lead for good with just over five minutes remaining in the game. After taking a seven point lead, the Red Wolves finished the game with seven straight free throws.

Ford’s 23 points came on 8-of-13 from the field with four 3-pointers, and three makes at the line. Akasha Westbrook supplied 14 points, and Madison Heckert was the third A-State player in double figures with 12 points. Westbrook also brought in a team-leading 10 rebounds to complete her double-double.
