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.
