Coastal Falls 61-45 at Radford in final 2015 game

11531568The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team suffered a 61-45 loss Tuesday night at Radford’s Dedmon Center in the Chanticleers’ final game of the 2015 calendar year.

Coastal (5-7, 0-3) fell behind Radford (5-6, 1-1) by double figures in the game’s first 10 minutes and, despite an impressive run in the second quarter, never managed to trim the deficit to single digits.

Gabby Gilmore paced Radford with 19 points to finish as the game’s leading scorer. Jayda Worthy followed with 15 points and seven rebounds, while Lydia Rivers and Janayla White co-led the Highlanders with nine rebounds each.

Ced Gibson registered a team-leading 10 points for Coastal on 4-of-17 from the floor with a pair of 3-pointers. Yasmin Miller tallied nine points while Jas Adams finished with eight. Patricia Albert, Stephanie Isaacs and Rachael Gregory finished as Coastal’s leaders in rebounds as the three pulled in five apiece.

Radford shot 48.0 percent from the floor in the contest, outdoing Coastal’s 23.9 field goal shooting percentage. The Highlanders also edged the Chants on the boards 41 rebounds to 40. Radford did the majority of its scoring down low, finishing with 38 points in the paint.

Radford dominated play during the opening quarter and the first half of the second as the Highlanders built a 33-11 lead.

Coastal managed to turn the tables with five minutes remaining in the second quarter as the Chants continued getting chances at the free throw line, resulting in six points from the stripe during that stretch. The Chanticleer defense also clamped down in the closing minutes, holding Radford scoreless for the final 3:50 of the half as Coastal ran out the clock on an 11-0 run to trail 38-24 at the break.

Coastal’s offensive push did not continue into the third as the Chants managed just three field goals in the quarter, two of which came from beyond the arc off the fingers of Gibson and Archer. Radford, meanwhile, tallied 13 points in the third, with all but two coming from the Highlanders’ top scoring trio of Gilmore, Worthy and White.

Radford lost the scoring battle by just three points in the final quarter, 13-10, as the Highlanders closed out the victory.

The Chants begin 2016 in Boiling Springs, N.C., on Jan. 2 when Coastal takes on Gardner-Webb for a 2 p.m. game at Paul Porter Arena. The Runnin’ Bulldogs won both games in last season’s series, and were Coastal’s first opponent of the 2015 calendar year.
