CONWAY, S.C. (AP) Badou Diagne scored 13 points and grabbed a career-high 18 rebounds as Coastal Carolina pulled away in the second half to beat Presbyterian 70-51 on Wednesday night.

Diagne was 5 of 8 from the floor and Warren Gillis added 14 points for Coastal Carolina (17-12, 10-5 Big South).

The Chanticleers led 17-4 with 12:32 remaining in the first half after Eric Smith's layup capped a 9-0 run. Presbyterian quickly responded with 12-straight points and cut the difference to five, 28-23, at the break. Early in the second half, however, Coastal Carolina held the Blue Hose to just two points in a 6-minute span, and led by 15 with 10:54 to play.
