However, it will only be televised on Time Warner Cable SportsChannel in the Raleigh/Durham and Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point regions. For out of market viewers, the game will be streamed on AmericanSportsNet.com.
Freshman of the Week
Adams' Freshman of the Week nod is her second this season. In Coastal's two games last week, Adams shot 72.7 percent (8-11) from 3-point range while averaging 15.5 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.
In Coastal's win against Charleston Southern on Tuesday, Adams scored 18 points in 25 minutes, going 6-7 from beyond the arc. Her six 3-pointers matched Coastal's single-game high this season, set by Stephanie Isaacs against Barber-Scotia. The Winston-Salem, N.C., native then scored 13 points and pulled down five rebounds at Winthrop on Saturday.
Last Time Out
Coastal followed its pair of wins at home with an 81-68 loss at Winthrop on Saturday. Erica Williams and Shaquilla Nunn each notched over 20 points for the Eagles, who held a 13-point halftime lead and equaled the Chants' scoring efforts in the second half to seal the win.
Anna Vogt led the Chants with 22 points, setting a career high for the junior forward. AJ Jordan followed with 17 points, 15 of which came in the second half. Vogt and Jordan each finished one rebound shy of a double-double as the pair co-led the Chants on the boards.
Chanticleers vs. Campbell
Tuesday's game marks the 40th all-time meeting between the Chants and Fighting Camels on the hardwood. Campbell owns a 21-18 series advantage, and is 11-7 against Coastal in games played in Buies Creek, N.C.
Coastal cut into the series lead with a 50-40 win over the Camels at The HTC Center back on Jan. 20. The Chants' stifling defense limited Campbell to just 40 points in that game, the lowest total allowed to a Division I opponent this season. It is also Coastal's only win of the season in which the Chants did not score more than 60 points.
Over the Hump
Coastal's earlier win over Campbell this season snapped the Camels' five-game winning streak against the Chants dating back to 2011-12.
Coastal's last win against Campbell in Buies Creek came in the 2009-10 season when the Chants downed the Camels 66-59.
The Chants have never beaten Campbell twice in one season since the sides started meeting twice per year in 2011-12.
