HARTSVILLE, S.C. – Junior Cobra Jasmine Alston (Sumter, S.C.) scored a team high 19 points and pulled down 15 rebounds, but it was not enough as Coker fell to Erskine College 66-47 in Conference Carolinas women’s basketball action Wednesday night.
The Flying Fleet started the game off with a dominating first half performance, holding the Cobras to 17 points, while scoring 30 of their own.
The Cobras bounced back with a solid second half showing scoring 30 points to Erskine’s 36, but the first half deficit was too much to overcome.
Erskine held the advantage of shooting percentage from the field 35.6 to 29.4, but it was the Cobras that outshot the Fleet from the charity stripe 76.5 to 64.7.
Alston was the lone Cobra to score in double figures, while Lucy Fish (Nottingham, England) had eight points and Megan Thomas (Cresskill, N.J.) netted seven.
Porsha Morgan was the game high scorer with 23 points for the Fleet, while Elizabeth Tatum recorded a double-double with 16 points and 11 rebounds.
