CONWAY, S.C. – Two Coastal Carolina fans will have the opportunity to win two free tickets to the Chanticleer men’s basketball game against Liberty Thursday night at 7 p.m. from Kimbel Arena.
The Coastal Carolina Department of Athletics will hold a raffle Tuesday night at the Coastal Carolina men’s basketball Chanticleer Call-in-Show from Logan’s Roadhouse located in the restaurant district of Coastal Grand Mall.
Two names will be selected at the end of the show and winners must be present to receive a set of two tickets. The show begins at 6:30 p.m. and will feature Coastal head coach Cliff Ellis and Matt Hogue, who is in his 14th year as the “Voice of the Chanticleers.”
Fans are encouraged to call the show with questions for coach Ellis at (877) 264-5371 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ellis and the Chanticleers own a 20-2 overall record and an 11-0 mark inside the Big South and enter Thursday’s game with Liberty riding an 18-game winning streak. The Chants have not lost since falling to No. 13 Georgetown on Nov. 18 in the Charleston Classic.
Coastal Carolina received eight votes in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 Poll and six votes in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll. In addition, the Chants are ranked eighth overall in the CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Top 25 Poll.
Thursday’s game between Coastal and Liberty will also be a battle for first place in the Big South Conference standings. The Chants are currently in first place atop the league, but Liberty enters play with a 10-1 league record and sits just one game behind the Chants.
Earlier this season Coastal won 70-67 at Liberty behind the 15 points of sophomore guard Kierre Greenwood.
