Recap: Coastal Carolina vs. Va Military

Conway, SC (SportsNetwork.com) - Josh Cameron netted 17 points to lead the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers to a 66-62 decision over the Virginia Military Keydets in semifinal round of the Big South Conference Tournament at the HTC Center.

Warren Gillis added 12 points for the top-seeded Chanticleers (20-12), who will take on the No. 4 seed Winthrop in the Championship Game on Sunday. Badou Diagne recorded a double-double with 11 points, 11 boards and four blocks, Tristian Curtis grabbed 13 rebounds and Elijah Wilson had 11 points.

D.J. Covington registered a double-double for VMI (19-12) with 18 points and 12 rebounds. Rodney Glasgow and Q.J. Peterson contributed 14 points apiece, with the former also accounting for five of the team's 10 steals.

Both sides struggled on the offensive end in the opening period. The Keydets shot just 26.5 percent from the floor, including a 6-of-21 clip from 3-point range, while Coastal Carolina connected on only 36.7 percent of its field goal attempts. The Chanticleers converted 10-of-12 shots at the charity stripe in the first stanza to take a narrow, 34-33, lead into halftime.

VMI continued to have trouble with its accuracy as it was held to just 30.8 percent efficiency from the field in the second half. Coastal Carolina shot an even 50 percent from the floor despite missing all five of its 3-point field goal tries after the intermission. VMI trailed by just one point with under a minute remaining before Gillis made a clutch a jumper with 24 seconds left to play. After Peterson's potentially game-tying 3-pointer fell off the mark, Cameron put it out of reach with a made free-throw attempt.

The Chanticleers finished with a 48-35 edge in total rebounds and advanced despite committing 16 turnovers compared to only nine by VMI.
