CONWAY No. 19 North Carolina used a 19-4 run over the final five minutes of the first half and the opening five minutes of the second to pull away from Coastal Carolina en route to a 75-49 victory over the home standing Chanticleers in Sunday matinee at The HTC Center.

For the second straight game the Chants (6-3, 1-0 Big South) were paced by Angelica Henry, who finished with 15 points – nine of which came from the charity stripe. The guard also turned in a team-high four assists and four steals. Sophomore AJ Jordan led Coastal with nine boards.

North Carolina's (10-1) Antoinette Bannister led a trio of Tar Heels in double figures with 13 points on 4-of-7 from the field, including 3-of-5 from beyond the arc. Tierra Ruffin-Pratt and Megan Buckland scored 11 and 10 points, respectively.  

The Chants' scrappy defense forced 21 North Carolina turnovers; unfortunately, Coastal only converted 12 points off of those turnovers and were limited to only eight second-chance points off 16 offensive boards.

Coastal Carolina returns to action on Tuesday at South Carolina State. The Chanticleers and Bulldogs will tipoff from the Smith-Hammond-Middleton Memorial Center in Orangeburg, S.C., at 5:30 p.m.
