Conway, SC (SportsNetwork.com) - Xavian Rimmer paced four teammates in double figures with a career-high 22 points as the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns held off the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, 73-69, in the championship round of the mainland part of the Maui Invitational Tournament at the HTC Center.

For Coastal Carolina (2-4), Elijah Wilson led all scorers with 22 points. Warren Gillis netted 14 points and Michel Enanga grabbed 13 rebounds.

Louisiana led throughout the second half and by as many as 13 points. The Chanticleers cut their deficit to three with five seconds remaining, but Long's 1-of-2 trip to the foul line on the other end of the court made it a two-possession game and thus sealed the deal.
