The CAA Tournament Semifinals featured two different styled games. The first semifinal was a game that Paul Westhead would love. End to end action, lots of three pointers and points galore. The System personified. UNCW outlasted William and Mary 105-94 in absolute clinic of offense. It's not too often you shoot fifty six percent, hit twelve three pointers, score ninety four points, and STILL LOSE by eleven points. Un. Real.
Then we had the complete antithesis in the second semifinal. Towson and Charleston engaged in a classic #CAAHoops rock fight. And for a good part of the game, Towson's relentless defense had Charleston on the ropes and the Tigers led for most of the game. But Joe Chealey was a one man rally cat, scoring twenty nine points to lead a comeback. The Cougars finally took the lead for good with 4:45 left and went on to win the game 67-59.
Charleston now plays UNCW for the CAA Championship tomorrow night at 7:00 PM. Here are the pictures from Sunday.
