CONWAY – One year after winning at Clemson on a last-second shot, Coastal Carolina's men's basketball team won the rematch in Conway going away. The Chanticleers outscored the Tigers 25-8 over the last 10 minutes to pull away for a convincing 69-46 victory before a sellout crowd of 3,286 at The HTC Center.

The Chants posted their third victory over an ACC team in program history and improved to 4-5 on the season. Anthony Raffa scored a game-high 25 points on 10 of 17 shooting from the field. Warren Gillis added 12 points, including three 3-pointers, and Kierre Greenwood chipped in 10 points and seven assists. Uros Ljeskovic had a team and career-high 10 rebounds.

Devin Booker scored 16 points and Jordan Roper added 12 for Clemson, which dropped to 6-4.

Coastal shot 46 percent from the field in the game and made a season-high nine 3-pointers on 23 attempts. The Chanticleers also forced 18 Clemson turnovers, scoring 20 points off of them, and limited the Tigers to just 32% shooting. In addition, Coastal won the battle of the boards 39-32.  

Coastal returns to action Saturday, Dec. 22 when it travels to College of Charleston for its final game before the holiday. Tipoff is set for 12 p.m.
