The Cougars’ zone defense held Coastal Carolina, the nation’s third-best field-goal shooting team (51.8), to just 46.2 percent from the floor. Former Georgia Tech and NBA star Travis Best spoke to the team in the locker room after the game. He played for Coach Cremins and was drafted in the first round of the 1995 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers. Former CofC standout Tony White, Jr., who is currently playing for the ABA’s South Carolina Warriors, also paid a visit with the Cougars the night before during the team’s dinner at the hotel.
