Falcons red hot from long distance in lopsided home win over Coker

Monday, January 28, 2013 — Pfeiffer University drained 13 three-pointers to stay unbeaten on their home floor with an 83-54 trouncing of Coker College in Conference Carolinas women’s basketball action on Thursday night.

The victory, ninth-straight at home, pushes the Lady Falcons to 12-3 overall, 7-3 in league play while the Cobras fall to 10-7, 6-5 with the defeat.

Midway through the first half, a Carter Williams  three gave Pfeiffer a 16-9 lead with 9:52 to play in a fairly close opening half. After a pair of Autumn Lau free throws cut the Coker deficit down to seven with 5:17 remaining, the Lady Falcons would then burst out on a 21-7 run closing out the period for a 20-point halftime lead.

Brittany Cox would score a dozen of those 21 points over the final five minutes while Williams added six more before the break.

Pfeiffer would follow up its 41-point first half with 42 in the second starting with another triple from Cox. A pair of Williams free throws made it a 24-point advantage with 4:43 left before the sophomore gave the Lady Falcons their largest lead with two more from the charity stripe with 2:52 remaining.

Pfeiffer shot 39 percent from the floor and from behind the arc place four starters in double-figures. Williams led the way with a career-high 19 with five threes while Christina Harvey followed closely behind with 18.

Jodie Lemons would contribute with a double-double scoring 17 to go along with her 11 rebounds while Cox concluded with 15. Kellie Rhoney posted a team-high seven assists aiding in the 83-point night. Pfeiffer would also dominate the rebounding category 54-37.
