Lady Chants can’t get over the hump against Lady Camels

The Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team struggled from the field in the second half as Campbell used a 22-3 run to overcome a five-point halftime deficit to down the Chanticleers, 47-38, on Saturday afternoon at Kimbel Arena.

The defeat, only Coastal’s second at home this season, drops the Chanticleers to 12-11 overall and 5-9 in Big South play.  Campbell, winners of its last two, pushes its record to 14-10 (7-6 Big South) with the victory.

Coastal’s Olivia Irick and Campbell’s Katelyn Bass each led their respective team with 16 points apiece.  Irick’s performance, which included a career-high tying four treys, was Irick’s 13th of the double-digit variety this season.

Campbell roared out of the locker rooms with a 9-0 run to open the second half, erasing its five-point halftime deficit and pulling out to 27-24 lead.  A Kayla Cook freebie slowed the Campbell momentum, but the Fighting Camels quickly regained what they had lost as Katelyn Bass and Kate Cloxton combined for five more points to push their lead to a then game-high eight points at 32-24 with 14:15 remaining in regulation.

After Campbell took an 11-point lead on back-to-back makes by Jazmine Cooper, freshman AJ Jord converted an old-fashioned 3-point play to pull the Chants back within six.  The Chanticleers had a chance to climb even closer, but turnovers on consecutive possessions swung the momentum back into Campbell’s favor.

This time it was shots by Bass and Heather Beadle, along with four free throws that answered for the Fighting Camels to boost the margin to 46-31 with 2:27 left. The Chanticleers would score five points over the final minute to provide the 47-38 final.

Olivia Irick scored seven quick points in the opening minutes of play as the Chanticleers jumped out to a quick 13-4 lead on the visiting Fighting Camels. Coastal continued to apply pressure on Campbell with its high intensity defense that forced four turnovers over the ensuing five minutes as the Chants extended its margin to 21-10.  Cole capped the eight-point scoring stretch as she a deep 3-pointer with 4:17 to play in the half.

Campbell responded with a 8-0 run of its own, with four points coming at the free-throw line, to pull within a three at 21-18. Alexx Puckett then then made a layup with 19 seconds remaining, after the Chants pulled down three rebounds on the possession, to push the Coastal back in front by five at 23-28 heading into the intermission.

For the game, Coastal Carolina shot 13-of-48 (27.1 percent) and outscored Campbell 11-9 in second chance points. Campbell shot 16-of-45 (35.6 percent) from the floor for the game and held a 18-8 advantage in points off turnovers.

Coastal Carolina continues its homestand on Monday, Feb. 20, as hosts to High Point in the Chanticleers’ Play 4 Kay game supporting the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. Tipoff from the Kimbel Arena is scheduled for 7 p.m. Fans in attendance will have an opportunity to view a pink fire truck sponsored by the North Carolina Chapter of the Guardians of the Ribbon. Additionally, after the game fans will have a chance to shoot on the floor for a $1 donation to the Kay Yow Cancer Fund.
