BANNER ELK, NC – The Pfeiffer University Falcons paid a visit to Williams Gymnasium Wednesday evening, emerging with a convincing 91-68 win over the Lees-McRae College Bobcats in Conference Carolinas women's basketball action. Pfeiffer improves to 9-14 (6-10 Conference Carolinas) while Lees-McRae falls to 6-17 (5-12).

The Lady Falcons came out flying in the first half with a 7-2 lead in the first two and a half minutes. The Lady Bobcats would claw their way back into the game to cut the deficit to two, 16-14 with 12:06 remaining. After trading baskets, the visitors would take control of things 17-6 run to go up 35-22 with 5:27 to play.
