May 19, 2013
CONWAY - The Coastal Carolina baseball team, six-time defending Big South Tournament champion, will open the 2013 conference tournament as the two seed and face seventh-seeded Longwood on Tuesday at 9:30 am. The Big South Tournament will be contested May 21-25 in Lynchburg, Va., and is being hosted by Liberty.
This will mark the first ever meeting between Coastal Carolina and new league member Longwood.
In addition to winning each of the last six Big South Tournaments, Coastal has played in 13 of the last 15 tournament title games, including seven times versus 2013 tournament host Liberty. Overall, Coastal has won a Big South best 13 tournament titles. In fact, the 13 are two more than the rest of the league combined.
Coastal is not only putting its six-year streak of winning the Big South Tournament on the line, but the Chanticleers are putting a 15-game win streak at the Big South Tournament on the line. After dropping a 11-7 game to Radford in the second round of the 2009 tournament, Coastal won the next three games of that tournament to be champion and it has not dropped a game in the tournament in each of the last three.
