CHARLESTON –
Despite a career-high tying 25 points by Warren Gillis, Coastal Carolina was unable to overcome six second-half 3-pointers by Charleston Southern as the Buccaneers erased a halftime deficit on its way to defeating Coastal Carolina 83-72 in Big South basketball action Wednesday night.

The game featured 20 lead changes and 11 ties before Charleston Southern went on a game-clinching 7-0 run with 7:43 to play.

The Buccaneers (15-9, 9-4 Big South) were paced by Saah Nimley's 24 points, including 20 in the second half. Nimley, who entered the contest as the Big South's leading scorer, accounted for 15 of his points via 3-pointers. Joining Nimley in double-figures were Will Saunders (18), Aaron Wheeler's (15) and Cedrick Bowen (11).

Coastal (17-8, 8-5 Big South) was led by Gillis' game-high 25 points. The senior knocked down 9-of-17 from the field and 6-of-8 at the free-throw line. Elijah Wilson chipped in 13 points, while Shivaughn Wiggins and Badou Diagne scored 11 and 10 points, respectively. 

The Chanticleers welcome rival Liberty to The HTC Center on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. The game, which is the second of a doubleheader with the women's team taking on Longwood at 1:00 p.m., will be carried live on ESPN3.
