Overview of the Charleston Standings

Last-Season Standings

The Charleston Southern Buccaneers had a tough 2021-2022 season, finishing with an overall record of 8-23 and a conference record of 6-12. They ended up in 8th place in the Big South Conference standings, failing to qualify for the conference tournament.

Despite their struggles, there were a few standout players for the Buccaneers. Leading the team in scoring was junior guard Phlandrous Fleming Jr., who averaged 17.7 points per game along with 6.3 rebounds and 2.6 assists. Fleming Jr. was also named to the All-Big South Second Team for his efforts.

Another key contributor for Charleston Southern was senior guard Deontaye Buskey, who averaged 12.9 points per game while shooting 39.4% from beyond the arc. Buskey was also named to the All-Big South Honorable Mention Team.

The Buccaneers struggled on both ends of the court, ranking near the bottom of the conference in both scoring offense and scoring defense. They also had issues with turnovers, ranking near the bottom of the conference in turnover margin.

Looking ahead to next season, Charleston Southern will need to improve in multiple areas if they hope to be more competitive. They will be losing Buskey to graduation, but they will return Fleming Jr. for his senior season. They will also need to develop some of their younger players and improve their team chemistry if they hope to move up in the conference standings.

In terms of betting tips, it may be wise to avoid placing large bets on Charleston Southern until they show significant improvement. They were a consistently inconsistent team throughout the season and had difficulty covering spreads. Keep an eye on their injury reports and watch for any trends in their performance before placing any bets.

Charleston Basketball History

Charleston Southern began play in 1965-66 when the school was still called Baptist College of Charleston. The team had some success early but fast-tracked themselves to becoming a Division I school for the 1975-76 season. The Buccaneers struggled for wins, posting a 23-109 record in its first five seasons.

Charleston Southern joined the Big South Conference for the 1985-86 season and had the team’s best two-year run, winning the regular season title and conference tournament in each of its first two years. The Big South Conference winner didn’t receive an invitation to the NCAA Tournament until 1991.

The Buccaneers won the conference tournament in 1995 but due to Campbell leaving the conference before the start of the year, the Big South was left with just five teams that had played at the Division I level for five years. The NCAA requires six teams in order for the conference winner to receive an automatic invite to the NCAA Tournament, so once again Charleston Southern was left at home during March.

The Buccaneers won the conference tournament again in 1997 and this time they got to advance to the Tournament, where they lost to UCLA in the first round. That has been the team’s only appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Buccaneers did play in the NIT in 2013 and 2015, as well as the CIT in 2019.
