CONWAY, S.C. -- Davon Marshall scored 28 points and Liberty used a late surge to pull away from Coastal Carolina for a 78-61 victory in the first round of the Big South Conference tournament Tuesday night.

Leading 53-51 with 12 minutes left, the Flames (12-20), the No. 5 seed in the North Division, launched a 14-1 run. Marshall scored the last eight points in the spurt, with a jumper and two 3-pointers making it 67-52 with 3:37 remaining.

Marshall, who was 5 of 7 from deep, now has 89 3-pointers to rank third on Liberty's single-season list.

Coastal Carolina, the South Division's No. 4 seed playing on its home court, shot 28.6 percent (8 of 28) in the second half and made 1 of 16 3-pointers for the game.

Anthony Raffa's 23 points led the Chanticleers (14-15).

The Flames will face High Point, the No. 1 seed in the North Division, on Thursday.
