CCU Hoops: Men, women take big road wins at Troy

Trailing by 14 points at halftime, Coastal Carolina went on a second half run that saw the Chanticleers come back for a 74-73 win at Troy.

Zac Cuthbertson led the comeback with 15 second-half points and he finished tying for game-high honors with 21 points.

Jaylen Shaw, playing in foul trouble for a big part of the game, finished with 13 points, but made the biggest play of the game when he came up with a steal with two seconds securing the lead and victory for the Chants.

The game was close early and late, but in between Troy (8-11, 2-4 SBC) led by as many as 15 points (40-25) with 2:38 left in the first half. The two teams were tied seven times over the course of the game and the game was tied 14 times.

Demario Beck’s basket with 9:12 left in the game gave CCU its first lead of the second half at 60-59. It was the final basket of a 14-0 run that brought CCU back from a 59-46 deficit.

After Beck’s basket, the two teams went back-and-forth, but a layup from B.J. Miller gave the home-standing Trojans a 68-65 lead with 5:54 left.

Again the Chants responded, scoring seven of the game’s next eight points to take a 72-69 lead with 3:05 left. Following a Troy timeout the Trojans canned a three from Kevin Baker to tie the game at 72, but Amidou Bamba’s tip gave CCU a 74-72 lead with 1:53 left.

It would be the final points for CCU and Troy added a free throw to cut the lead to one, but that would be all of the scoring.

Women

The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team gained an early advantage over Troy and later used a fourth-quarter surge to remain in front of the Trojans for a 97-92 victory Saturday afternoon at Trojan Arena.

The Chants (11-8, 5-3) led for 35:33 of the contest, and surrendered the lead to Troy (7-10, 2-4) for just 1:50 in the fourth quarter before ending the game on a 13-4 run to claim its first road win of the season. It was also the first home loss for Troy this year.

Coastal’s 97 points on Saturday marks its highest offensive output of the season. That included a season-high 56 points in the first half.

Jas Adams responded to a season-low scoring effort at South Alabama this past Thursday with 23 points against the Trojans to lead all players. Coastal’s lone senior, who has surpassed 20 points in six games this season, was held off the board in the fourth quarter until the final 16 seconds, when she hit four crucial free throws to put the game out of reach.
