Results vs. Columbia Union (2008-12-16 00:00:00)

Takoma Park, MD -- The Pfeiffer University men's basketball tallied its fourth consecutive win with a score of 96-65 over Columbia Union College on Tuesday night. The Falcons avenged their only loss of the season to run their record to 4-1. Pfeiffer forced 42 Columbia Union turnovers scoring 41 points off those miscues and won the rebounding battle 49-30. The Falcons blew open a 43-38 tight contest at halftime by outscoring the Pioneers 53-27 in the second half and shooting a blistering 63% from the field after intermission.
It was again a total team effort as ten players scored between 8-18 points. Chris Woods (Thomasville, NC) led Pfeiffer with 18 points on 9-11 shooting and added twelve rebounds in 19 minutes of playing time. Freshman Davon Gilliard (Charleston, SC) also had 18 points on 6-10 shooting from the field and had seven steals. Duke Johnson (Villa Platte, LA) continued his outstanding play with eight points and ten rebounds from the guard spot. Athalie Rivera (Baltimore, MD), playing before hometown friends and family, had an outstanding game scoring eight points on 3-3 shooting and adding six rebounds. Point guard Jeff Pettiway (Edgewood, MD), also playing close to home, played well and without a turnover while scoring eight points on 3-5 from the field. Chris Donald (Boston, MA) and Robet McGriff (Lancaster, SC) scored nine each and James Crowder (Guilford, NC) and Alvin Slaton (Fayetteville, NC) each added eight.
"What an outstanding second half of play on both ends of the floor," said Pfeiffer coach Dave Davis. "We are improving as a team on many levels each time out and this certainly looked a lot better than when we lost to them a month ago. We shot the ball terribly from the perimeter (3-16 from the 3-point line) and from the free throw line (19-33) and still managed to score 96 points. We had severe foul trouble in the first half and weathered adversity to play our best second half of the year. Our pressure really wore them down and we again rebounded like champions. We have recruited the Washington DC/Baltimore area for years and have had a lot of success getting quality players from this area. It is nice to get the three guys from the area on our current roster a chance to play close to home."
The Falcons continue a torrid road schedule with eight of their first nine games this season on the road. Pfeiffer plays next at a tournament at West Virginia State, opening on Saturday at 3:00 PM with nationally ranked Bellarmine out of Louisville, Kentucky. The Falcons then close out pre-Christmas play on Sunday at 3:00 PM against the host school.
