The men’s game looked to be a very exciting game, as each team came out hard and fast right from the start. Things slowed down slightly and at the half the Bulldogs had a six point lead on the Cobras. However, the second half brought a renewed Barton team to the court and the Cobras could not catch up, as the Bulldogs outscored the Cobras by 13 in the second half.
Junior Abram Ludd/Sumter, SC, lead the way for the Cobra offense, with 13 points and eight rebounds while, senior Johnny Jackson/Hartsville, SC, added 14 points to the Coker effort.
For the Bulldogs, like the women before them, four Barton men scored in double figures. Anthony Atkinson had 20 points, Casey Moore had 15 points and nine rebounds, Brian Leggett added 14 points and seven rebounds and finally Alejo Barovero had 13 points and two rebounds. As a team the Bulldogs shot 51 percent from the field for the game and shot 42 percent from beyond the arc.
The Cobras return to action on Saturday, January 7, with a double header at
