    BOILING SPRINGS, N.C. -- Elijah Wilson scored 21 points, including four 3-pointers, to lead Coastal Carolina to an 81-69 win over Gardner-Webb in a conference matchup Saturday night.

    The Chanticleers (8-8, 1-1 Big South Conference) took control midway through the first half with a 14-3 run that included two Wilson 3-pointers and carried a 35-23 advantage into the break. Gardner-Webb (7-10, 0-2) kept pace with Coastal Carolina after the break, with both teams pumping in 46 second-half points, but the Runnin' Bulldogs couldn't erase the deficit.
