WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)–The eight point deficit at halftime was too much for UNCW men’s basketball to overcome on Saturday night against the College of Charleston as they fell 73-66.
UNCW was able to cut the Cougar lead down to one in second half with 2:07 left to play, but the Seahawks couldn’t score from that point on. The loss is the 6th straight for C.B. McGrath’s club as their record drops to now 4-10 on the year.
It was a huge game for Seahawk senior Devontae Cacok. He finished with a team-high 27 points to go along with 19 rebounds. The Cougars were led by Grant Riller who scored 31 points on 9-19 shooting from the field.
UNCW will continue CAA play next Thursday night as they begin a two game road trip at James Madison. Tip-off from Harrisonburg, VA is set for 7:00 P.M. The Seahawks will then travel to take on Towson on Saturday afternoon.
