LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) Zac Cuthbertson made 1 of 3 free throws with less than two seconds remaining to stop a 12-0 run by Little Rock and Coastal Carolina held off the Trojans 72-71 on Thursday night.

Devante Jones finished with 21 points for the Chanticleers (9-9, 3-3 Sun Belt Conference) and his two free throws gave them a 71-59 lead with 4:17 left in the game. But Deondre Burns had a 3-point play and Rayjon Tucker followed with a 3-pointer to pull the Trojans (7-13, 2-5) even at 71 with 54 seconds remaining. Little Rock turned the ball over with seven seconds left and Kamani Johnson fouled Cuthbertson on a 3-point try. He made the first, missed the next two, but Kris Bankston's 3-point try was off the mark at the buzzer.

Ajay Sanders sank five 3-pointers and scored 19 for Coastal Carolina, while Cuthbertson scored eight and grabbed 10 rebounds to help the Chanticleers post a 38-31 advantage on the boards. Coastal Carolina was playing on the road for the first time since Jan. 5.
