Chants’ second-half surge falls short to UNCA in OT

ccuhoops-45dunkJaylen Shaw led a second-half comeback with a team-high 21 points, but it was not enough as Coastal Carolina fell to UNC Asheville 79-77 in overtime.

UNCA opened up a 21-point lead (56-35) with 14:02 left in the game.  It was after a timeout the Chanticleers went into a zone and held the Bulldogs to only one field goal over the last 10 minutes of the game. During that time, the Chanticleers (3-6) outscored the Bulldogs (5-3) 34-13.  At one point during the run, CCU scored 18 consecutive points.

With the game even at 66, Coltan Ray-St Cyr hit a three with 20 seconds left to put CCU up 69-66.  UNCA ran the clock down and Alec Wnuk canned a long three with a second left to send the game into overtime.  It was the only field goal the Bulldogs hit in the final 10 minutes of action. From there the visitors outscored CCU 10-8 in the extra period for the final margin of victory.

Amidou Bamba was the only other Chant to reach double digits, finishing with 12 points.  Ray-St Cyr had nine along with Artur Labinowicz and Demario Beck scored eight. CCU’s leading scorer Elijah Wilson only scored eight points in the game, eight points below his average.

CCU finished the game shooting 48 percent from the field and hit a season-high 13 three point field goals. Trouble areas for the Chants again were turnovers and free throw shooting.  CCU committed 17 turnovers which led to 25 points for the visitors and CCU only hit eight of its 18 free throw attempts.

The Chants cooled off late in the half and finished shooting 42 percent from the field.  Labinowicz led the scoring with six points and four other players had five points each. Nine turnovers in the opening 20 minutes hurt CCU as the visitors were able to score 10 points off those turnovers.

Coastal will host the fourth game of the current five-game home stand Monday Dec. 5 when Piedmont International comes to the HTC Center for a 7 p.m. game.
