HARTSVILLE, S.C. – The Coker women's basketball team started off the new year with a 78-51 win over Brevard College on Saturday (Jan. 4) at the Timberlake-Lawton Gymnasium.  With the win the Cobras up their record to 6-4 on the year, and 4-2 in SAC play. 

The first half was tight as both teams exchanged buckets in the first 20 minutes, but Coker would take a slight 34-33 lead into the locker room.
