Lady Chants drop one on the road to Presbyterian

Despite having three players in double-figures, the Coastal Carolina women’s basketball team was unable to overcome a 10-point second half deficit as Presbyterian College held on the defeat the Chanticleers 56-52 on Friday evening.

With the loss the Chants fall to 13-13 overall and 6-11 in Big South play as Presbyterian College improves to 13-15 (7-10 Big South) with the win.

Olivia Irick paced three Chants in double-figures with 13 points as Kayla Cook poured in 12 and Shatia Cole added 11.  Additionally, Cook nearly finished with her first career double-double as she corralled a team-high nine rebounds. Dria David led PC in the scoring column with a game-high 16 points as Devin Fothergill tallied a game-high 17 boards.

Presbyterian College outscored the Chants by six over the first the 3:30 of the second half to extend its lead out to 36-29. Shatia Cole then cut the homestanding Blue Hose lead to one as she made threes on back-to-back possessions.  After a three-point play by PC’s Dria David, Coastal knotted the score at 41-all on a 12-foot jumper by the Big South Freshman of the Year candidate.

The Chants would then go cold from the field as Presbyterian College built a 10-point advantage to lead 52-42 with 3:47 remaining in the game.  Shonda Burnside accounted for seven straight points, five of which came at the charity stripe, during the 11-1 Blue Hose scoring streak.

Coastal rallied back to cut the Blue Hose lead to three with 1:15 to play. Kira Carter started the 7-0 run with a trey from the wing followed by fastbreak layup by Cole before Katelyn Connor sank two free throws, putting the score at 52-49. Free throws by Devin Fothergill and David bookended a layup by Connor setting up the nail-biting finish.

Following David’s freebie, Irick received the inbounds pass with seven seconds on the clock and raced toward midcourt.  PC elected to send the senior to the line leading by three with four ticks left.  Irick made the first free throw and intentionally missed the second hoping a teammate would pull down the offensive board and convert a put-back before time expired.  Unfortunately, PC controlled the rebound, sealing the win.

The Blue Hose jumped out to an 8-0 advantage over the opening three minutes of the game; however, the Chanticleers would respond with a 12-3 run over the ensuing six minutes to take a 12-11 advantage.  Irick scored the first seven points of the run as the senior knocked down a jumper, two free throws and a triple. Cook, a sophomore, then reeled off five straight as she connected on a triple and mid-range jumper to give the visitors a slim lead with 10:45 remaining in the half.

After exchanging five leads over the ensuing seven minutes, PC used a baskets by David and Burnside to take a 27-23 lead with 13 seconds remaining. Irick responded with her second 3-pointer of the game to send the black and teal clad Chants to the locker room trailing by one at 27-26.

For the game, Coastal Carolina shot 19-of-56 (33.9 percent) and outscored PC 15-9 in second chance points. The Blue Hose shot 19-of-58 (32.8 percent) from the floor for the game and held a 24-18 advantage in points in the paint.
