Texas State halts Coastal’s season in opening round

Jaylen Shaw scored a game-high 27 points, but it was not enough as Coastal Carolina fell to Texas State 73-66 in the opening round of the Sun Belt Conference Championship.

Shaw hit 11 of his 17 field goal attempts on his way to the game-high. He also posted six rebounds and three assists in his final game as a Chanticleer.

Coastal Carolina once trailed in the game by 16 points (52-36) in the second half, but came back behind the play of Shaw to cut the lead to 62-58 with three minutes left in the game.

It was a time which saw the Chanticleer defense hold the Bobcats over seven minutes without a field goal, but CCU could not complete the comeback as a turnover led to a layup and pushed Texas State’s lead back up to six and CCU never got any closer.

Texas State (15-18) won the game at the free throw line, where they hit 22 of 26 for 85 percent. They came into the game only shooting 65 percent as a team at the charity stripe.

CCU (14-18) meanwhile, also hit its free throws, but only attempted 14 connecting on 11 for 79 percent.
