CONWAY, S.C. (Dec. 18, 2002) -- The Lady Bucs held a commanding advantage on the boards, but the Coastal Carolina women's basketball team defeated East Tennessee State, 72-62, Wednesday evening from Kimbel Arena in Conway, S.C. Coastal Carolina held a 34-31 lead after a competitive first half of play. The second half was more of the same, as the Lady Chanticleers outscored the Lady Bucs 38-31. East Tennessee State held the lead midway through the second half, but a Coastal run put the game away. ETSU (2-6) was led by sophomore forward Tiffani Mayes (Sumter, S.C.) who had 12 points, along with ten rebounds and three blocks. Senior guard Samantha Copeland (Evansville, Tenn.) also scored in double-digits for the Lady Bucs, contributing 10 points on the evening.

Coastal Carolina's (4-2) Nikki Reddick scored a game-high 24 points, along with five rebounds, five steals and five assists, while Lady Chant Cyndie Troutman added a career-high 15 points off the bench. Trailing 42-37 with 16:40 to play, Troutman would help ignite a 12-6 Lady Chant run, with eight points, as Coastal re-took the lead for good at 49-48 with 10:28 remaining.
