Coastal Carolina advances to Big South title game, 73-70

CONWAY, S.C. (AP) Badou Diagne scored 19 points and third-seeded Coastal Carolina beat seventh-seeded Gardner-Webb 73-70 on Saturday to reach the Big South Conference championship game.

The Chanticleers (23-9) will meet fifth-seeded Winthrop on Sunday in a repeat of last year's title-game matchup won by Coastal Carolina.

Leading by three with 24 seconds left, the Chanticleers' Warren Gillis made four free throws and Elijah Wilson one to offset a 3-pointer and layup by Tyler Strange. The Bulldogs (19-14) had two good looks at 3-pointers in the final seconds but missed both.
