TCC survives against Coastal Georgia, improves to 2-0

Leading 75-74 with 3.2 seconds left, TCC’s Shamar Coombs missed the front end of a two-shot foul. Coombs hit the second and the Mariners’ final shot, a three-point attempt by Mike Harris, hit the front of the rim.

The Eagles are now 2-0 on the young season while Coastal Georgia, playing its third road game in three days, fell to 0-3.

TCC scored the first eight points of the game and appeared to be on its way to another relatively easy victory; however, a flurry of fouls halted the Eagles’ momentum and breathed life into a Coastal Georgia team that had already suffered a 120-110 loss to Enterprise-Ozark ( Ala.) Community College on Friday. The Mariners fought back to force a 21-21 tie on a basket by Harris with 7:56 left in the first half. Following a technical foul on TCC’s Jason Bennett, Coastal Georgia took its first lead of the game, 25-24, on a Piers Finch free throw. The lead was short-lived, however, and TCC closed the half on a 16-6 run to take a 42-32 lead to the locker room.

Fouls plagued both teams in the first half, as 33 total fouls were whistled. Coastal Georgia took full advantage, hitting 20-of-27 from the line to stay within striking distance.

Helping TCC’s cause was the performance of freshman Dexter Shaw. The Cartersville, Ga., native came off the bench to score 12 points in the opening 20 minutes.

TCC led by as many as 15 in the second half before the Mariners methodically chipped away at the deficit. Coastal Georgia tied the game at 69 on a three-pointer by Jaroy Stuckey with 2:33 left. Coombs’ put back of a Jermaine Dixon miss with 1:06 remaining gave the Eagles a 71-69 lead, one they would not relinquish.

Coombs led all scorers with a career-high 25 points, hitting 8-of-12 from the field and 5-of-7 beyond the arc. Shaw finished with 13 while Rory Miller and Paul Guede each scored 10. Miller added 10 rebounds for his first career double-double.

Stuckey’s 17 points led the Mariners.

TCC returns to action at home on Friday night when it hosts Central Florida Community College at 7:30 p.m.
