McCoy's 29 Not Enough As Shaw Falls To WSSU 81-76

Posted February 13, 2013

— Latrail McCoy scored 29 for Shaw University Wednesday night, but it wasn't enough to power Shaw past visiting Winston-Salem State as they fell 81-76 in a game played at C.C. Spaulding Gymnasium.

McCoy's season-high 29 came from all over the court as he was 10 for 19 from the field - six of ten from beyond the three-point arc - and three for three from the free throw line.

Statistically, much of the game was a draw as each team sank 29 field goals, Shaw on 54 attempts and Winston-Salem State on 53. Shaw outrebounded the Rams by one (29-28), but committed three more turnovers (16-13). The biggest difference came at the free throw line where the Bears went 10 for 15, while the Rams finished 17 of 24 from the charity stripe.

WSSU built much of their advantage on the fast break, scoring 12 points off the break, as opposed to only four for the Bears.

Winston-Salem State broke on top early, building a 6-2 lead in the opening minutes when Justin Glover hit a fast break layup.

The Bears found their offensive rhythm, outscoring the Rams 17-2 over the next four and a half minutes. John Savoy got some key minutes early in the contest, scoring five points in the run, including a dunk that brought the sold-out crowd to their feet. That dunk, off a pass from Junius Chaney, came with 12:28 left on the clock and gave the Bears a 19-8 lead.

Half a minute later, McCoy hit a three, building the Shaw lead to 22-9, but WSSU would score the next eight points, including two threes from Kimani Hunt, setting the score at 22-17.

McCoy hit another three to build the lead back to eight, but Winston-Salem responded with five straight points from Victor Holloway, ending with a layup with 6:35 on the clock, cutting Shaw's lead to 25-22.

With 3:09 left on the clock in the first, Taurus Dortch hit a jumper to give Shaw a 29-24 lead, but the Rams again responded with a run - this one of five points - to tie the score at 29 with 1:47 left on the clock.

A minute later, and now tied at 31, Dortch was fouled while shooting a three, and sank all three free throws to give Shaw a 34-31 halftime lead.

In the opening minutes of the second half, Shaw held on to, and even extended their lead - stretching it to five on a layup from Chaney that made the score 38-33 with 18:31 left.

The Rams then scored six straight, on their way to outscoring Shaw 20-8 over the next six minutes. Glover, who had scored only two points in the entire first half, scored nine points in the run, including a layup with 11:59 left that gave the Rams a 53-46 lead.

Chaney would drain a jumper at the top of the key to slow the Ram roll, but after an exchange of buckets from the two teams, Glover hit a three and Holloway a jumper to give WSSU a double-digit lead at 60-50 with 8:46 left in the game.

Shaw mounted a small 10-4 run, punctuated by another three from McCoy that trimmed the WSSU lead to 64-60 with 5:49 left.

Over the next three minutes, the Rams re-extended their lead, stretching it to 11 on a pair of free throws from WyKevin Bazemore with 2:04 left in the game.

The Rams would not score another bucket - spending the rest of the game at the foul line, where they hit six of six. Between WSSU free throws, the Bears scored a trio of threes - two from McCoy and one from Derrick Hunter that settled the final score at 81-76.

Andre Paulk was the only other Bear to hit the double-digit mark with 12 points. Chaney and Hunter each finished with eight points. Chaney led the Bears with six rebounds while Paulk led the squad with three assists.

Glover scored 18 points in the second half, finishing with 20 points overall. Michel-Ofik Nzege finished with 19 points while Bazemore and Holloway collected nine apiece. Nzege led the Rams with nine rebounds and Marcus Wells had four assists to lead WSSU.

The Bears will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they travel to cross-town rival Saint Augustine's in the Battle for Raleigh. Game time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Emory Gymnasium.
