Coker Falls to Barton, 78-51

WILSON, NC. – Autumn Lau led the team in scoring with 19-points in Tuesday's (Jan. 8) Conference Carolinas 78-51 loss against Barton College.  With the loss, the Cobras fall to 9-4 on the year and 5-2 in league play.

The Cobras struggled offensively in the first half by giving up possession on 13 different occasions.  The Bulldogs were able to capitalize by scoring 23-points off of turnovers, and led 41-24 at the half.

Coker started the second half with a 10-3 run to pull within ten points.  The Bulldogs however, countered with a 16-4 run of their own to extended their lead to 24-points.  The deficit proved to be too much for the Cobras as both teams exchanged buckets to end the game.

Along with her twin sister Autumn, Amber Lau finished in double-digit figures with 15-points. 

As a team, the Cobras shot 37-percent (11-of-30) from the floor, and 88-percent (8-of-9) from the free throw line.
