Coker Takes 72-66 Win Over Anderson

ANDERSON, S.C. – The Coker women's basketball team defeated Anderson 72-66 in a SAC matchup on Saturday (Jan. 11), at the Abney Center.  With the win Coker improves to 8-4 on the year and 6-2 in conference action.  

It was a competitive first 20 minutes as both teams exchanged points late into the first half.  At the four-minute mark Coker had a slight 30-28 advantage, but then proceeded to go on a 9-2 offensive run to take a 39-30 lead into the locker room.
