CONWAY — Coastal Carolina women’s basketball is having to pause activities due to COVID-19 protocols in the program for a third time this season.

The Chants were scheduled to play three games with Georgia Southern this week, one at HTC Center on Tuesday, Feb. 16, and two in Stateboro, Ga., on Feb. 19-20, but the games have now been canceled.

These games will not be made up due to the short amount of time left in the regular season.

The Chants are 3-11 overall and 0-10 in Sun Belt play this season.

The Coastal Carolina men’s basketball team also has to alter its schedule this week due to COVID-19 protocols in the Georgia Southern program.
