CCU’s Cameron nets POW; Chants get date on ESPNU

ccuhoops-3Coastal Carolina guard Josh Cameron has been named the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Men’s Basketball Player of the Week for games played Dec. 22-Jan. 4, it was announced Monday by the conference office.

Cameron’s weekly honor is his second of the season after also earning the plaudit on Dec. 8. Moreover, Cameron becomes the first Chanticleer to earn multiple Big South Player of the Week honors in a single season since Desmond Holloway picked up the award three times during the 2010-11 season.

Cameron, who has been as cool as the other side of the pillow off the bench this season, averaged 17.5 points in leading the Chanticleers to a 2-0 Big South start.  He went 12-of-22 from the floor (54.5 percent) and 9-of-12 from three-point range (75.0 percent) in victories over High Point and Charleston Southern.  He also tallied four rebounds, two assists and a steal.  Cameron started with a game-high 18 points at High Point on 6-of-10 from the field, including a 4-of-5 effort from three (his lone miss was with the shot clock winding down in the final minute of play).  He was 3-of-3 from long distance in the first half as he helped CCU to a nine-point lead at intermission.  Against Charleston Southern, the senior scored 17 points, including five threes, in his 21 minutes off the bench.  His fifth 3-pointer of the contest gave Coastal the lead for good with 11:14 to play.

The Racine, Wis., native leads the team in scoring at 14.2 points per outing. His points per game average ranks eighth-best in the Big South, while his 42.5 percentage from 3-point land ranks second.

Coastal return to action hosting Longwood on Thurs., Jan. 8 with tipoff at approximately 7:30 p.m. The game is the second of a doubleheader with the women’s team taking on Liberty at 5:00 p.m.

Chants to appear on ESPNU

The Big South Conference announced the Coastal Carolina at UNC Asheville men’s basketball contest scheduled for Thurs., Jan. 22, has been picked as ESPNU’s Big South Wildcard Selection. The game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. tipoff at the Bulldogs’ Kimmel Arena in Asheville, N.C.

Coastal Carolina and UNC Asheville split last year’s meetings with each team winning on its home floor. Coastal leads the all-time series against the Bulldogs by a slim 34-32 margin. The sides have met 12 times since the 2009-10 season, including twice in the Big South Tournament, with Coastal holding a 7-5 record in those games.

2015 marks the third consecutive season that the Chanticleers and Bulldogs will play a Big South game on ESPNU. Coastal hosted former league member VMI on ESPNU in 2013 and traveled to Campbell last season for a game that was televised on the national network. UNC Asheville played on ESPNU at VMI in 2013 and at Radford in 2014.
