CONWAY – Colton Ray-St Cyr surpassed his previous career-high in the point category in the first half and Coastal Carolina controlled all aspects of the game in a 104-67 rout of Grace Bible Wednesday evening at the HTC Center.

Ray-St Cyr finished the contest with 16 points on 7-of-9 from the floor. Joining Ray-St Cyr in double-figures was leading scorer Badou Diagne with 23 to go along with 10 rebounds, Tristian Curtis (14), Jaylen Shaw (13), Elijah Wilson (13) and Ron Trapps (13).
