Coastal Carolina ready to roll over South Alabama

Coastal Carolina at South Alabama 

Mitchell Center – Mobile, AL

Don’t let the homecourt advantage for South Alabama fool you in tonight’s Basketball Classic Semifinal. Instead, take a closer look at recent history.  

It takes a special kind of team to win the Basketball Classic, and both of these schools seem to have embraced the opportunity. However, South Alabama has won its tournament games by an average of just three points. Meanwhile, the Chanticleers have stormed through the bracket, swatting opponents by an average margin victory of 20 points.  

The last time these two teams met, South Alabama won, but it required a buzzer beater to do so. If Coastal Carolina’s Rudi Williams continues his outstanding postseason play, this one goes the other way, as the Chanticleers advance to the final. 

Hoops Harlen’s pick: Coastal Carolina M/L
