WBB: Team-Effort Leads Campbell Over Coastal Carolina, 64-54

Posted January 3, 2013

— The Campbell women's basketball team returned to its Big South schedule on Thursday night and topped Coastal Carolina, 64-54, at Gore Arena/John W. Pope, Jr. Convocation Center. Freshman guard Zena Lovette (High Point, N.C.) paced the team with 11 points as the remaining four starters each scored eight or more points.

Head Coach Wanda Watkins notched her 250th conference win in her 32nd season combining the Lady Camels league wins in the Big South (92-33) and Atlantic Sun (157-161). Campbell improved to 2-0 in the Big South and 10-2 overall, while Coastal Carolina fell to 6-7 and 1-2 in league play
The Lady Camels shot 40.7 percent for the game and set a season-best by compiling a 55.5 percentage from three-point range. Lovette drilled a team-high two threes.

A trio of Campbell players registered nine points in senior guard Tonisha Baker (High Point, N.C.), junior forward Ashley James (Round Rock, Texas) and junior guard Monique Spry (Wilson, N.C.), while sophomore Kiera Gaines (Mechanicsville, Va.) contributed eight. Spry also surpassed a season-high by adding seven rebounds.

Campbell was very effective in transition scoring 29 points off of 20 Chanticleer turnovers, including 16 points on the fast-break.

Coastal Carolina became just the fourth team to out-rebound the Lady Camels, 48-36, and Katelyn Conner led the squad with 11 boards. The Chanticleers were paced by AJ Jordan with 13 points followed by Alexx Pluckett with 12 and Angelica Henry with 10.

The game was the battle of two halves as Campbell was dominant in the first, out-scoring Coastal Carolina, 38-18, but the Chanticleers came back in the second to post a 36-28 advantage. Campbell notched a game-high 18 points off the bench, while Coastal Carolina led the contest with 36 points in the paint and 15 via second chance opportunities.

Campbell started quick in the first half on an 18-2 run through the first 7:44 of the game as six steals fueled the offense to 11 points off turnovers. Lovette and junior guard Jessica Moore (Jacksboro, Tenn.) drained shots from beyond the three-point arc, while Baker, Gaines and Spry made field goals
The Chanticleers posted a 12-2 run of their own as Jordan hit back-to-back jumpers, 20-14, with 5:28 left. The Lady Camels fought back once again by using turnovers to jumpstart their offense and take a 36-18 advantage at the half.

Coming out of the break, Jordan hit four jumpers and Puckett added three more to ignite a 19-8 run for Coastal Carolina in the first 9:30.

A series of Chanticleer mistakes sparked a 13-5 run that brought the Campbell lead to 64-44 with 4:33 left. Junior forward Roslyn Presley (Petersburg, Va.), freshman guard RaeChaun Edwards (Spring Grove, Va.), Moore and Lovette contributed to the rally.

Earning some additional Big South playing time late in the game were sophomore guard Summer Leverette (Turkey, N.C.), sophomore forward Juli Osborne (Kingsport, Tenn.), sophomore guard Casey Elliott (Wilson, N.C.) and junior forward Heather Beadle (Austin, Texas). Coastal Carolina would cut the Campbell lead to 64-54 before the final horn sounded.

The Lady Camels continue a Big South stretch of three games in five days on Saturday with a 1 p.m. contest against Presbyterian College, which is followed by the men's game vs. Gardner-Webb. Campbell heads to Boiling Springs, N.C. on Monday at 7 p.m. for a tilt with the Runnin' Bulldogs.
Coastal Carolina plays its Big South opener on Saturday against Charleston Southern.
