Charleston Cougars at UNCW Seahawks

Charleston has won nine straight games as they sit atop the CAA with a 12-3 record, but are still just one game ahead of Northeastern. They face a UNCW team that is playing their third game in five days. These teams met on Jan. 18 with Charleston winning, 80-76 at home.

Riller leads Cougars over Dukes

James Madison led the College of Charleston, 66-58 with 4:14 to play. But the Cougars ended on an 11-3 run to force overtime. Guard Grant Riller nailed a three-pointer with 2.2 seconds left in overtime to give Charleston their 12th win in the league. They spoiled a 33-point game from freshman guard Matt Lewis, though Riller had a big game with 32 points for the Cougars. Forward Jarrell Brantley added 20 points and 13 rebounds, while guard Cameron Johnson chipped in with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Charleston had 20 second-chance points and outrebounded the Dukes, 41-28.

Point guard Joe Chealey leads the Cougars with 17.7 points per game and 3.7 assists. The Cougars average 73.1 points per game on 45.1 percent shooting (34.8% 3pt). They allow 67.2 points per game on 42.5 percent shooting (34.7% 3pt).

Seahawks rout Elon

UNCW needs to learn how to win on the road (1-10) but they are a pretty good home team (8-4). They crushed Elon on Thursday at home, 87-63 as they took advantage of a team missing their best interior player. Phoenix forward Brian Dawkins (6-8, 240) was averaging over 12 points and 5.5 rebounds, but was out due to a shoulder injury. The Seahawks took advantage, outrebounding the Phoenix by 26. Forward Devontae Cacok, the nation’s top rebounder, had 17 points and 21 rebounds, while Marcus Bryan added 11 boards. Ty Taylor II led the Seahawks in scoring with 19 points and he had eight boards. UNC Wilmington shot 45.3 percent from the floor and made 15-of-30 from beyond the arc. They also held Elon to just 33.9 percent from the field and 10-of-37 from beyond the arc (27%).

Cacok (6-7, 240) is averaging 17.4 points and 13.4 rebounds per game on 58.5 percent from the floor. On the season, UNC Wilmington averages 79.9 points per game on 43.8 percent shooting (35.4% 3pt). They allow 82.8 points per game on 47.4 percent shooting (38.9% 3pt).

NCAAB Trends:

Charleston is:

  • 13-5-2 ATS last 20 Saturday games.

UNCW is:

  • 0-5-1 ATS last 6 after a SU win of more than 20 points.

Charleston is coming off a tough game but the Seahawks had to play on Tuesday as well (62-61 loss at James Madison) after last week’s game against JMU was postponed due to a potential Mumps outbreak. Not that Charleston needs an advantage but they do get one against a UNCW team that won’t able to dominate the glass against a big, burly Charleston team.
