RESULTS VS. COKER COLLEGE (2009-01-10 00:00:00)

Hartsville, SC - The Coker Lady Cobras overcame a three point halftime deficit on their way to their third straight Conference Carolinas win of the season, as they defeated the Pfeiffer Falcons 82-77 on Saturday afternoon in women's collegiate basketball.
Coker (4-6, 3-2 Conf. Carolinas) was able to take advantage of 25 Pfeiffer (1-9, 1-4 Conf. Carolinas) turnovers, converting them in to 20 points, while the Lady Falcons only managed seven points off 16 Lady Cobra turnovers. Another major key to the Coker victory was the Lady Cobras success at the free throw line, as Coker shot 75 percent from the charity stripe, scoring 27 points, compared to Pfeiffer's mere eight points from the line.
Pfeiffer did hold out rebound the Lady Cobras 46-39, while out scoring Coker from beyond the arc, 27 points to 15 points. In a game that saw 14 lead changes and eight ties, it was the little things that made the big difference in the end.
Pfeiffer was led by Shanee Purnell (Woodbridge, VA) off the bench with a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds, while Jessica Walter (Knoxville, TN) had 14 points and three steals. Also scoring in double figures were Jamila Harris (Danville, VA) and Kelly Mathis (Maryville, TN) with 11 and 10 points, respectively.
