RESULTS VS. ERSKINE (2009-01-26 00:00:00)

Due West, SC- Pfeiffer men’s basketball triumphed over the Flying Fleet of Erskine College 63-61 on Monday evening. The win brings the Falcon record up to 7-3 in Conference Carolinas play and 10-7 overall. The Fleet slide to 5-12 overall, 4-7 in conference.
Pfeiffer opened the evening with a 9-0 run and it looked as if they were going to run away with the game. Erskine battled back to pull to within 3 (35-32) going into the halftime break. During the second half, Pfeiffer maintained control but Erskine was never far behind.
The Fleet finally took the lead 48-47 with 9:26 left on the clock off a three-pointer by Brandon Wright (Goose Creek, SC). Erskine preserved their lead for a little over seven minutes until Pfeiffer’s Robert McGriff (Lancaster, SC) tied the game at 59 from the free throw line with 2:06 left to play. McGriff then took the lead from Erskine from the free throw line 61-59 with 57 seconds remaining. On the next possession, Erskine sophomore Nick Riley (Stone Mountain, GA) drew a foul and sunk two free throws to tie the game at 61 with 23 seconds left on the clock. McGriff then brought the ball down for the Falcons, ran time off the clock, penetrated the Fleet defense, and calmly sunk a 15 foot jump shot to give the Falcons the 63-61 lead with only one second remaining. Erskine was not able to get a shot off, and the Falcons took home the victory.
Erskine may have out scored Pfeiffer 27-15 from three-point range, but the Falcons out-rebounded the Fleet 58-36 and earned 17 second chance points to Erskine’s 5.
Pfeiffer’s Chris Woods (Thomasville, NC) led the Falcons with a double-double of 12 points and 15 rebounds. He was 3-for-4 from the field and sank six out of 10 free throws. McGriff hit for 10 points, including the game winning basket. James Crowder (High Point, NC) also had a solid game of 9 points and 10 rebounds.
Erskine point guard Dejan Nedelkovski (Skopje, Macedonia) led all scorers with 20 points. Riley hit for 17 points and pulled down 8 rebounds off the bench while Jay Boulware (Chester, SC) scored 12 of his own. Brandon Wright was held to 10 points tonight. Wright also had 8 rebounds.
