    CULLOWHEE, N.C. -- Brandon Boggs snapped a cold shooting streak with 26 points as Western Carolina defeated Coastal Carolina 80-70 Saturday in non-conference action.

    Boggs, who was 8-of-36 shooting over the past four games, made 9 of 14 shots and two 3-pointers after missing seven straight from deep during his slump.

    James Sinclair scored 17 for Western Carolina (12-17). The Sophomore posted 11 of his points during a 24-4 run that spanned nearly 12 minutes of the first half. Boggs scored nine during the run as the Catamounts took a 36-21 lead into halftime.

    Western Carolina shot 51 percent (15 of 29) in the opening frame while holding Coastal Carolina (13-13) to 27 percent (6 of 22).

    The Chanticleers improved to 15-of-36 shooting after the break, but Western Carolina answered by making 21 of 28 free throws, after attempting none in the first half.

    Kierre Greenwood scored 20 points for Coastal Carolina.
