Cuthbertson tallies 1,000th; Troy rips CCU men, women

Zac Cuthbertson scored a game-high 19 points and in the process reached the 1,000th career-point milestone, but it was not enough as Coastal Carolina fell to Troy 74-67 in the regular-season finale.

CCU led for most of the game, but the Trojans outscored CCU 10-0 over the final 1:42 of the game to pull out the seven-point win.

CCU struggled from the field all game only shooting 38 percent from the field. The Chants were even worse on its three-point attempts hitting two of its 17 attempts.

Over the past several weeks CCU has been shooting well over 80 percent at the free throw line, and even that suffered today as CCU hit 68 percent, 25-of-37.

The worse statistic of the day was CCU being out-rebounded 43-38. Troy had 17 offensive rebounds which it turned into 13 second chance points.

The Chants will now make their way to New Orleans for the Sun Belt Championship which runs March 14-17. The Chants first opponents will be released later by the Sun Belt Conference.

Women

The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team closed out the regular season with an 89-76 loss at Troy Saturday afternoon.

The Chanticleers finish the regular season 16-13 overall and 8-10 in the Sun Belt to earn the conference’s eight seed in the upcoming conference tournament. Check back to GoCCUSports.com later this evening when the Sun Belt releases its full bracket following the final day of games.

As the Sun Belt eighth seed, Coastal will host No. 9 Arkansas State at 7 p.m. Monday at the HTC Center.
