More Chealey More Problems (for the opposition)

The College of Charleston men’s basketball team beat former SoCon rival Western Carolina 69-60 Thursday night.

The Cougars were once again led by Joe Chealey who scored 18 points along with seven assists.

Chealey has been great for the Cougars this season leading the team in points per game (19.3) and in assists per game (5.3).

Grant Riller and Cameron Johnson also played very well each contributing double figures in points.

Riller finished the game with 17 points and three steals while Johnson scored 11 points.

Having three guys in the starting lineup score in the double figures is a big boost for the team and a big reason why the College of Charleston was able to get a victory.

At the half, the Cougars led Western Carolina 35-30; shooting 40.1% from the field and 10.0% from three-point range.

Thanks to a 27-11 run that lasted into both halves the Cougars led 54-38 with 14 minutes to go and were able to hold on and win.

For the game, the Cougars shot a mere 38.2% from the field and 20.8% from three.

With the victory, the Cougars are now 5-2 and have a current three-game win streak.

That win streak will be on the line with the College of Charleston plays High Point University Monday night at TD Arena.
