Winthrop Eagles basketball notes:
The third time was a charm for the Eagles against Coastal Carolina. After losing twice to the Chanticleers in the regular season, Winthrop knocked them off when it mattered most in the Big South Conference Tournament final. Torrell Martin is a real threat from anywhere on the floor, except for the free-throw line where he shoots a dismal 55%. The Eagles didn’t wear down throughout the Big South tournament and will go nine or ten deep in March. The talent level may drop, but having a big man like Billy Houston to steal a few minutes off the bench is extremely valuable come March.
