HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. — The 2018-19 season is just around the corner, and the anticipation continues to build with each passing day.

Teams are finalizing their non-conference slates for the upcoming season, and plenty of teams across the country are taking part in multi-team events. These events provide match-ups that fans may not see on a regular basis, and it helps to strengthen the level of competition that teams face before conference play gets rolling.

On Wednesday, the Northern Kentucky Norse took to social media to announce that they were hosting a multi-team event on their home court in Highland Heights. All four teams in the event, including the Norse, have played in the NCAA Tournament in recent years.

Joining Northern Kentucky inside the BB&T Arena for the three-day event will be the UNC Asheville Bulldogs, Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, and the Manhattan Jaspers. The event will take place from November 16-18, 2018. Continue reading Northern Kentucky Set to Host a Multi-Team Event in November

Second half comeback leads Lamar past Coastal Carolina, 66-60

James Harrison came off the bench to score a team-high 17 points, on 5-of-5 shooting from three point range, and Lamar used a second-half comeback to top Coastal Carolina, 66-60.

BEAUMONT, Tex. — Finding a perfect balance can lead to success in many different areas of life, including on the basketball court.

On Tuesday, the Lamar Cardinals used a balanced offensive attack against the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers as they launched a second-half comeback.

The Cardinals welcomed the Chanticleers to Beaumont, Texas for their 2017-18 home opener. Lamar opened the season with a seven-point road win over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane on Friday afternoon, and were looking to start the season 2-0.

Coastal Carolina, on the other hand, were looking to play the role of spoiler. The Chanticleers routed Piedmont International in their home opener, 102-50, and were also looking to push their record to 2-0 early in 2017-18.

The visitors took a seven-point lead into the break, at 35-28. In the second frame, the Cardinals chipped away at the lead, and utilized a balanced attack to overtake the Chanticleers and pull away for the victory.

James Harrison came off the bench to score a team-high 17 points for Lamar, on a perfect 5-for-5 shooting night from beyond the arc, and the Cardinals outscored the Chanticleers by 13 points in the second frame.

Lamar moved to 2-0 on the season with a 66-60 comeback win over Coastal Carolina. Continue reading Second half comeback leads Lamar past Coastal Carolina, 66-60

Coastal Carolina, Wyoming set to do battle in best-of-three series for the CBI crown

Sophomore Justin James is looking to continue his strong play as of late and lead Wyoming to the 2017 CBI title.
CALGARY, Alta. — March Madness is in full swing, and it’s lived up to the hype so far.

Several ‘streaks’ are in jeopardy, like whether or not a Hall of Fame coach will make an appearance in the Final Four. Then, we have the top-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs, who are looking to snap their own personal drought and make a Final Four appearance for the first time ever.

Following their win over the West Virginia Mountaineers in the Sweet 16, the Bulldogs are now knocking on the door of the Final Four in Houston.

While most people tend to focus solely on the NCAA Tournament, there are two teams who are looking to put an end to their championship droughts in Division I basketball.

On one side, you have a team looking to give the Mountain West Conference back-to-back winners in the College Basketball Invitational (CBI) Tournament, and their first tournament title since 1943.

On the flip side, you have a team who is looking for their first-ever post-season tournament title in men’s basketball.

Starting Monday in Conway, SC, there’s a lot on the line for both the Wyoming Cowboys and the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, who square off against one another in a best-of-three series to determine the 2017 CBI champions.

Here’s a look at how both teams got to where they are, and what they need to do to bring home some hardware. Continue reading Coastal Carolina, Wyoming set to do battle in best-of-three series for the CBI crown

It was only fitting that Coastal Carolina‘s Artur Labinowicz drained a long 3-pointer at the buzzer against the Wofford Terriers on Monday evening.

The game was a two-hour long shooting festival, a patchwork quilt consisting of run after run, much physicality and an ever-slim margin of error. Labinowicz’s shot would have fit into the madness nearly perfectly if it had forced overtime or won the game.

Unfortunately for the Chanticleers, it did fit into the madness perfectly — because before the heave, Wofford led by four.

Thursday was a busy day in the college basketball world, and a sad one for the basketball world, in general.

The legendary Craig Sager passed away at the age of 65, after a lengthy battle with Leukemia. Fans around the world looked back on their fondest memories of Mr. Sager to pay their respects, as the sporting world lost yet another icon in 2016.

Rest in the sweetest peace, Craig Sager.

On Thursday, the college basketball world offered up some top-notch action, even though there were only a handful of games on the slate. No ranked teams were in action on the night, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t any big time performances to talk about.

The Auburn Tigers tied an SEC record for three pointers in a game, en route to a 45-point win, while yet another NAIA team knocked off a Division I opponent in 2016-17.

We’ve got that, and more, in Thursday’s Headlines. Continue reading Thursday Headlines: Auburn Ties SEC Record for Threes in a Game, Another Division I Team Falls to NAIA Opponent, and More
