CONWAY, S.C. (AP) -- Jack Leasure tied his career high with 25
points to lead Coastal Carolina to an 81-66 victory over
Jacksonville on Sunday.
Leasure, a sophomore who left snowy Rochester, N.Y., for South
Carolina's Grand Strand resort region, made four 3-pointers and
added nine assists, also a career best, for the Chanticleers (2-3).
Leasure's points performance matched his output in a Big South
Conference tournament loss to Winthrop this past March.
Pele Paelay added 23 points as Coastal Carolina won its second
straight home game for first-year coach Buzz Peterson.
The Chants never trailed in this one, leading by 13 points at
halftime. Jacksonville (1-4) has lost two straight.
