Chowan Stuns Shaw 59-58 in CIAA Tournament Opener

Posted February 27, 2013

— The Shaw University Bears allowed an early 14-point lead to slip away as they suffered a 59-58 setback to Chowan in the first round of the 2013 CIAA Tournament on Tuesday night at the Time Warner Cable Arena.

The Bears, the fifth seed from the South, end their season with a 16-11 overall record while Chowan, the No. 6 seed from the North, moves on to the quarterfinals where a battle with Bowie State awaits. The Hawks will battle the Bulldogs, the fourth seed from the North, at 9 p.m. Wednesday night.

Ashante Ross buried what ended up being the game-winning three-pointer from the top of the key to put Chowan ahead with three seconds remaining. A halfcourt heave by Latrail McCoy didn’t fall as the Hawks celebrated their first CIAA victory of the season.

The Hawks outscored the Bears 35-27 in the second half as they rallied from a 31-24 halftime deficit to take the victory.

The Bears were led by senior Junius Chaney, who closed out his Shaw career with 17 points and seven rebounds. He was the only Bear in double figures. Andre Paulk finished with eight points, Taurus Dortch had seven and Curtis Hines contributed six in the loss.

“In the second half, we just came out flat,” said Shaw head coach Cleo Hill, Jr. “They kept it close and they made some good plays down the stretch. I don’t think we did a good job of getting the ball to Chaney in the second half."

After Ross’ three-pointer, Hill called a timeout and drew up a play hoping that McCoy could draw a foul on Chowan. Unfortunately, it didn’t pan out that way as McCoy forced an off balance jumper from half court, which bounced off the rim.

“He (Ross) got a great look at the three and he knocked it down,” said Hill. “On the last play, we kind of thought that we could draw a foul with Latrail on that side when he was isolated. I’m not going to say that he got a great look at it but I’m not going to say that he got a poor look at it either. He probably should have started a little deeper and gotten the ball up to the hash mark. But he got a shot up and he missed it. That’s it.”

Shaw got off to a quick 14-point lead in the first five minutes of the contest. A jumper from Paulk at the 15:10 mark of the first period gave the Bears a 14-0 advantage.

Chowan broke its scoreless streak when Quinton McDuffie hit a layup with 14:52 remaining in the first period. This sparked a 7-2 run by the Hawks, who cut it to 16-7 after a pair of free throws from Kyree Bethel.

Chowan extended its run to 11-2 when Kortez Smith sank a jumper at the 9:47 mark of the frame to bring the Hawks within six at 17-11.

At the 8:14 mark of the period, the Hawks got within six again at 21-15 when Ross made a layup. The Bears responded with a quick 7-0 spurt over the next four minutes to push their lead back to 13.

After a three-pointer from Chowan’s Rickey Lamb brought the Hawks back within 10, Chaney buried a free throw and a jumper to give the Bears a 31-18 edge with 2:14 left in the period.

The Hawks closed out the first half on a 6-0 run to get within seven, 31-24, at halftime.

Chowan opened the second half on an 11-3 run to take a 35-34 lead with 14:36 left to play. Six of the 10 points came from Duffie, who scored on a layup 18 seconds into the period, a tip-in and a pair of free throws all in less than two minutes.

A jumper by Derrick Hunter triggered a 6-0 run by the Bears, who took a 40-35 lead with 12:39 remaining.

Thirty-two ticks later, Bethel buried a three-pointer from the left wing to make it a two-point contest.

Three free throws by Shaw gave them a 43-38 edge with 10:43 remaining in the game. The Hawks cut it back to three when McDuffie sank a pair of free throws at the 9:48 mark.

Four free throws from Chowan, two by McDuffie and two by Bethel, brought the Hawks within one before McCoy converted a layup while drawing the foul. He sank the free throw to give the Bears a 46-42 cushion with 8:40 remaining.

McCoy scored again on a spinning layup to extend Shaw’s lead to six. After Bethel’s jumper at the 6:09 mark brought the Hawks within four, Hines tipped in McCoy’s miss to push the lead back to six.

Four straight points by the Hawks brought them within two. A steal by Ross and a layup from Smith made the score 50-48 with 5:07 to play.

McDuffie scored four quick points to help the Hawks retake the lead at 52-50. He fueled a 6-0 Chowan run. A putback by Ross gave the Hawks a four-point edge with 2:34 remaining.

Chaney’s dunk 31 seconds later brought the Bears made it 54-52. Shaw’s defense forced a turnover, which lead to a three-pointer from Keith Mitchell to give them a one-point advantage with 1:31 left in the game.

Chaney snagged down a missed three-point attempt from Greg Alston to set up a play for McCoy, who was fouled in the act of shooting. McCoy buried both free throws to push Shaw’s lead to 57-54 with 42.1 seconds on the clock.

McDuffie’s layup with 26 seconds remaining made it a one point game in Shaw’s favor.

Hines went 1-for-2 at the charity stripe to give Shaw a 58-56 edge with 20 seconds left. Ross came down with the ball as Chowan drove the length of the floor before calling a 30-second timeout.

A three-pointer by Ross from the top of the key sailed through the net, giving the Hawks the victory as Shaw was unable to hit a half court shot as time expired.

Chowan improves to 7-19 overall. The Hawks were led by a trio of players in double figures with Ross leading the way with 17 points. McDuffie and Bethel added 16 apiece in the victory.
