HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP)—Dexter Moore scored 23 points and Mario Sisinni’s 3-pointer with 8 seconds left gave Coastal Carolina a 70-68 victory over High Point on Saturday night.
The Chanticleers (10-14, 4-8 Big South Conference) won their first conference road game of the season and snapped a three-game skid.
The Panthers (6-17, 2-11) have lost eight of their last nine.
Led by freshman Nick Barbour, who scored 22 of his career-high 32 points in the first half, High Point had a 41-37 advantage at intermission.
The Panthers held a 68-64 edge with 1:32 remaining, then Coastal Carolina’s Joseph Harris hit a jumper at 1:13 and Steven Sexton made the first of two free throws with 18 seconds remaining to pull the Chanticleers within a point.
After a missed free throw by High Point’s Cruz Daniels, Sisinni hit his only 3-pointer of the game after four misses.
