Henry’s double-double lifts Lady Chanticleers to victory

ccuwhoops-henrydriveAngelica Henry matched her jersey with a career-high 32 points, while also corralling 12 rebounds as she led Coastal Carolina to a 75-65 victory over UNC Asheville on Thursday evening.

Henry became the first Chanticleer to break the 30-point barrier since Lacey Lyons finished with 30 against Howard on Nov. 26, 2006. The senior’s double-double was her third of the season and first against a Big South opponent.

Coastal, which improved to 10-9 overall and 6-4 in conference play, finished the game shooting 40.3 percent from the floor and led by as many as 16 points in the second half. UNC Asheville (8-11, 5-5 Big South) closed the contest shooting just 32.8 percent overall and 12.5 percent from three. The team’s combined for 43 total fouls and 57 foul shots.

The Chants’ AJ Jordan also notched a double-double, her fifth of the year and second consecutive, with 10 points and 11 rebounds. Alexx Puckett closed the game with 13 points and nine rebounds. The Bulldogs were led by Paige Love’s 16-point, 12-rebound double-double. She was joined in double-figures by Shonese Jones’ 15 points and Tianna Knuckles’ 12 points.

Angelica Henry opened the scoring in the contest with a jumper on Coastal’s second possession, sparking an 11-4 Chanticleer run. Asheville’s Knuckles and Jones then combined for a 10-0 Bulldog run, pushing the visitors to a 14-11 advantage and forcing a Chanticleer timeout with 9:47 to play before the intermission.

Following the timeout, Coastal reeled off another 11-4 scoring streak to regain a four-point lead at 22-18. Jordan started the run with a slashing layup in the paint. Henry connected on a runner and Puckett followed with back-to-back buckets in the paint. Kayla Cook then capped the run with Coastal’s first trey of the game with 6:14 to play in the half.

The Bulldogs then outscored the Chants 6-2 over the next four minutes, leveling the score at 24. Henry responded scoring five straight for the Chants on jumper and a 3-pointer. Cook and Asheville’s Tyler Smith traded free throws over the final 1:04, leaving Coastal 30-25 lead at halftime.

The teams exchanged points over the first two minutes coming out of the break before the Chants took hold with five straight points off a Cook layup followed by a Henry jumper and free throw. Asheville then scored four points at the line and used back-to-back baskets from Paige Love to close the Chants’ lead to 42-41 at the under 12 media timeout. Coastal answered with an 11-2 run fueled by five points from Henry, including a 3-pointer from the wing, to take its largest lead of the game at 53-43 and force a Bulldog timeout with 9:35 to play in regulation.

Asheville’s Leah Wormack slowed Coastal’s momentum out of the timeout with a layup, but Puckett replied on the Chants next possession with a layup of her own. Jordan connected on a 19-footer and Henry followed two possessions later with another runner in the lane, pushing the Chants lead to 59-45.

With CCU leading 63-47, Asheville made a final comeback attempt scoring eight unanswered points. However, the Chanticleers would finish the contest on a 12-10 run, including six free throws by Henry, to secure the 75-65 victory.

Coastal Carolina starts its second trip through its Big South Conference schedule Saturday at Winthrop. Tipoff from the Winthrop Coliseum is set for 1 p.m.
