    ORANGEBURG, S.C. -- Adama Adams scored 18 points and Darryl Palmer added 13 with nine rebounds as South Carolina State held off Coastal Carolina 83-78 Tuesday night.

    The Bulldogs (3-7) broke an early 7-all tie as Karon Wright drained a 3-pointer to ignite a 25-9 run in the first half, coasting to a 43-25 advantage at the break.

    Coastal Carolina (5-6) trailed by 20 early in the second half but wouldn't fold easily, crawling back with a 30-14 surge to make the score 64-60 with 5:17 remaining. SC State countered with a quick 8-2 run, capped off by a Palmer dunk.

    The Chanticleers cut the deficit to two with 18 seconds left following a Warren Gillis 3-pointer and two Josh Cameron free throws, but Jalen White hit three free throws to ice the game.

    Matthew Hezekiah had 14 points for SC State.

    Cameron paced Coastal Carolina with 22 points and Gillis had 16.
