CONWAY, S.C. (AP) -- Anthony Raffa had 28 points to pace four double-figure scorers for Coastal Carolina in an easy 82-62 win over Radford on Saturday.
Kierre Greenwood added 17 points, Chris Gradnigo 13 and Sam McLaurin 10 for the Chanticleers (14-5, 7-2 Big South Conference). Coastal Carolina has won four of its last five games.
The Highlanders led 12-6 midway about seven minutes into the game, but a Jon Pack layup and a Gradnigo dunk started a 23-6 Coastal Carolina run and the Chanticleers cruised the rest of the way.
They led by 18 points at the break and outscored Radford 41-39 in the second half to seal it.
Daniel Mitchell scored 21 points to lead the Highlanders (4-18, 1-9), who have won just once in their last 17 games after starting the season with three victories in four tries.
