Hartsville, SC- With just seven seconds remaining in the game the Coker Cobras had a chance to tie, or beat the Falcons of Pfeiffer University as they trailed 88-86. Unfortunately for Coker, they could not get that shot to fall. Junior guard Ryan Fulwood received an inbound pass from his brother Jason and found an opening and drove the lane for a lay-up, but it lipped out and 18th ranked Pfeiffer came out with an 88-86 victory at Coker’s Timberlake-Lawton Gymnasium on Sunday night.


It was a fast paced game right from the start, that saw some great play on both sides of the court. 42 of the Cobras 86 points came from Coker’s “Bomb Squad” of Ryan Fulwood, Jason Fulwood and Ben Brim from behind that arc. The trio accounted for 12 of Coker’s 14 three pointers, shooting a combined 48 percent from three point range.


On the Pfeiffer side, DeMario Grier racked up 31 points, leading all scorers, six from beyond the arc; he shot an even 50 percent from the floor in the game, while also accumulating five rebounds and two steals.


In their second game of the week against a ranked opponent; the Cobras lost 77-70 to 12th ranked Barton College on Wednesday, Coker played very tough game.
