Coastal’s season hits end point in loss to High Point

Erin Reynolds scored a game-high 24 points and the No. 2-seeded High Point Panthers held a double-digit lead for the entire second half to defeat No. 7 seed Coastal Carolina, 78-57 in the quarterfinals of the 2012 Advance Auto Parts Women’s Basketball Championship, Friday night at Millis Center.

Reynolds finished the night with five steals and four assists. Cheyenne Parker and Taylor Tremblay both posted double-doubles for the Panthers. Parker tallied 14 points and 12 boards while Tremblay had 12 markers and 12 rebounds. Olivia Irick led Coastal with 19 points while Shatia Cole had 14. Kayla Cook finished with 11 rebounds for the Chanticleers.

Coastal Carolina (13-15) jumped out to an 8-1 lead in the first three minutes of the game before High Point closed the gap with back-to-back field goals to make it 8-5 at the 16:07 mark. The Panthers eventually tied it at 8-8 after Reynolds converted a steal and lay-up at 15:26.

Over the next four minutes, the teams traded baskets and leads. Coastal regained its lead at 10-8 and moved ahead 14-10 before the Panthers converted two field goals and a free throw to take a 15-14 advantage. The teams went back-and-forth until High Point used an 8-0 run the next two minutes to pull ahead 27-20 at the 7:25 mark. Reynolds scored seven-straight points to push High Point’s lead to 37-24 with 4:30 remaining the half before Angelica Henry cut the deficit to single-digits with a bucket in the paint. But High Point countered with a 10-footer off the glass from Parker and a three-pointer from Reynolds to take a 44-30 halftime lead.

Reynolds scored 19 first-half points to lead the Panthers. She also tallied four of HPU’s 10 steals in the opening 20 minutes. A.J. Jordan and Cole led the Chanticleers with eight points apiece in the first half, while Cook grabbed eight rebounds. The Chants out-shot the Panthers from the field, 48.1 percent to 36.4 percent, but High Point scored 16 points off of 13 Coastal turnovers, compared to CCU’s two points off turnovers.

High Point went up as much as 21 points in the second half and enjoyed a double-digit lead for the final 21:37 of the contest. The Panthers limited Coastal to 37.9 percent from the floor in the second stanza while shooting 45.5 percent themselves. High Point also recorded 14 steals, scored 24 points off turnovers and had 19 second-chance points.
