NEW BRITAIN, Conn. -- Josh Cameron made a four-point play with 22 seconds left to give Coastal Carolina the lead for good in a 65-62 victory at Central Connecticut State on Saturday.

Coastal Carolina (6-6) trailed 62-59 when Cameron made a 3-pointer and the foul shot to put the Chanticleers up 63-62.

CCSU (3-8) had a chance to go back ahead but Kyle Vinales missed a 3-pointer with 6 seconds to go and the Blue Devils fouled El Hadji Ndieguene who made both free throws. Malcolm McMillan missed an attempt to tie the game with a 3-pointer as time ran out.

The game was tight the whole way. Neither team held more than a two-possession advantage and the teams will meet again on Jan. 3.

Cameron led Coastal Carolina with 16 points. Ndieguene had six offensive rebounds and 12 overall.

Vinales had 20 points for CCSU and McMillan had 19.
