Georgia Southern men’s basketball tops Coastal Carolina

The Eagles will close the regular season by hosting Appalachian State on Friday night
Tyren Moore knocked down two and tallied 13 points in Wednesday's game.

Georgia Southern (GS) made a season-high 14 three-pointers to post a 76-68 Sun Belt men's basketball win over Coastal Carolina Wednesday night in Hanner Fieldhouse.

It was the fourth time this season GS has made double-digit three-pointers in a game.

Kamari Brown tallied 14 points and five rebounds to become the Eagle of the game. Brown matched his career high with four three-pointers. 

Meanwhile, Tyren Moore knocked down two and tallied 13 points, four rebounds and three assists. Andrei Savrasov finished with 12 points and a game-high 11 rebounds, and Kaden Archie recorded 11 points and three assists. 

The Eagles (15-15, 8-9) scored seven points in a row to turn a five-point cushion into a 67-55 lead following a pair of Brown free throws with 5:15 to play. 

Coastal Carolina (11-18, 5-12) was unable to work the margin under double digits until Jomaru Brown made a layup with four seconds to go.

Trailing by six points in the first half, the Chants scored seven in a row, and Brown's three-pointer gave CCU a 26-25 lead. 

Savrasov made two three-pointers and Moore knocked down a third in a 9-0 run that gave the home team a 34-26 cushion, and GS never trailed the rest of the game.

The Eagles' win coupled with Texas State's loss at South Alabama tonight assures GS can finish no lower than 10th in the Sun Belt and will play its first round tournament game Thursday, March 2, in the Pensacola Bay Center.

Next up, GS caps the regular season by hosting Appalachian State Friday on Senior Night. GS will recognize seniors Kaden Archie, Kamari Brown, Carlos Curry, Jalen Finch, Andrei Savrasov and Tai Strickland prior to the contest.

Tip off is set for 7 p.m. and on ESPN+ and the GS Sports Network. For more information, click here
