CCU Hoops: Mountaineers sweep host Chanticleers

Coastal Carolina could not overcome the hot second half shooting of Appalachian State in an 81-66 loss to the Mountaineers.

The Mountaineers (11-15, 6-7 Sun Belt) broke open a close game by shooting 65 percent in the second half while the Chanticleers only shot 40 percent.

CCU (11-16, 5-8 Sun Belt) had three players reach double digits with Artur Labinowicz leading the way with 16.

Zac Cuthbertson and Amidou Bamba were the only other players to reach double figures as both scored 10 points. Cuthbertson finished with his fifth double-double of the season grabbing a game-high 10 rebounds.

Jaylen Shaw had an off-night shooting the ball finishing with nine points. He did have a game-high eight assists and two steals.

Appalachian State was also able to out rebound the Chants 35-32 with 11 of those coming on the offensive end which led to eight second chance points.

Turnovers also contributed to the loss as CCU turned the ball over 19 times. The visitors were able to turn those turnovers into 23 points.

Coastal finished the game shooting 45 percent from the field and hit seven three point field goals in 20 attempts (35%). The Chants shot 19 free throws hitting 13.

App State had three players reach double-digits with O’Showen Williams coming off the bench to lead the scoring with 20 points. Ronshad Shabazz, the third leading scorer in the Sun Belt, finished with 19 points and Griffin Kinney had 14.

Women

The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team won its second overtime game of the season at the HTC Center on Saturday, defeating Appalachian State 73-68.

Coastal (12-12, 6-7) led for over 40 minutes of game time, but App State (6-18, 4-9) forced overtime on LaPresha Stanley’s game-tying shot with 2.8 seconds remaining in regulation. The lead changed hands five times during the overtime period before the Chants scored seven unanswered points to close out the game.

The victory snaps a four-game losing streak for Coastal and keeps the Chants in eighth place in the Sun Belt, one spot ahead of ninth-place App State. Coastal is also now 2-0 in overtime games this season. The Chants previously defeated Fort Wayne in overtime at the HTC Center on Dec. 4.

Jas Adams led the game scoring 29 points, tying her career high. Her efforts bring her career total to 1,052 points, moving her into 12th place among Coastal’s all-time leading scorers.
