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.

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.
