CONWAY – Coastal Carolina used a 15-2 run at the onset of the second half to break open a close game as the Chanticleers dealt the visiting UNC Asheville Bulldogs a 68-52 loss Tuesday evening inside The HTC Center.

The win, which vaulted the Chants into a five-way tie for third in the Big South Conference, was head coach Cliff Ellis' 150th on the Chanticleers sideline. The monumental victory made Ellis the only coach in NCAA Division I history to win 150 or more games at four different universities. Ellis won 171 games at South Alabama, 177 at Clemson, 186 at Auburn and is currently 150-95 in his eighth season in Conway.

Josh Cameron led all scorers in the game with 18 points on 4-of-8 from the floor and 9-of-13 from the free-throw line as the Chanticleers improved to 16-7 on the season and 7-4 in conference play. Also scoring in bunches on the night was Elijah Wilson with 15 points, which included a trio of 3-pointers. Tristian Curtis also posted a big night with 10 points and 10 rebounds, marking his first career double-double.

Asheville (11-11, 7-4 Big South) was led by Corey Littlejohn's 14 points and David Robertson's 10. Coastal managed to limit Andrew Rowsey, who entered the game as the Big South's second-leading scorer at 19.0 point per game, to six points.

The Chanticleers remain at The HTC Center to face conference leader High Point on Friday, Feb. 6. The game, which is slated for a 9 p.m. tipoff, will be carried live on ESPNU.
