Falcons Lose Conference Opener
Tuesday, 20 November 2007
MOUNT OLIVE , N.C. – Mount Olive withstood a second-half rally to defeat Pfeiffer 86-76 in Conference Carolinas women’s basketball Tuesday at Kornegay Arena. The game was the conference opener for both teams.

Mount Olive (1-1 overall, 1-0 Conference Carolinas) jumped out to an early seven-point lead as Brittney Robich hit back-to-back three-pointers. Pfeiffer (2-2, 0-1) pulled within 12-10 after Kelly Mathis’ three-point play with 15:54 remaining in the half. The Trojans came back with a 14-0 run, highlighted by Robich’s three-pointer and Tomeka Prichard’s putback and free throw.

Pfeiffer got as close as 11 points, but Brittany Miller hit all three free throws after getting fouled on a three-point attempt to give the Trojans their biggest lead at 42-25 with 1:35 remaining. Pfeiffer hit a pair of field goals in the final 90 seconds as Devona Knight’s basket with 16 seconds remaining pulled the Falcons within 42-29 at halftime.

Corley scored Mount Olive’s first two baskets of the second half as the Trojans built the lead to 15 points. But Cathi Kennings’ three-pointer triggered a 7-0 run and pulled Pfeiffer within 48-42 with 15:13 left to play. The Falcons missed a chance to convert a three-point play and Robich’s three-pointer highlighted a 10-2 run as the Trojans built the lead to 58-44 with 12:29 remaining.

The lead was still double figures when Kennings and Dominique China hit three-pointers to help bring Pfeiffer within two and Denova Knight’s putback tied the game 64-64 with 5:25 remaining. Corley dished to Helen Moore for a layup on Mount Olive ’s next possession to trigger a 6-0 run and put the Trojans ahead to stay.

Pfeiffer got as close as four points, but Moore found Miller for a backdoor layup and Robich’s steal and end-to-end layup helped the Trojans build the lead to 78-68 with 2:17 left to play. The lead never fell below six the rest of the way.

Knight recorded a double-double with 21 points and 11 rebounds and led five Falcons in double figures. Kennings and Allegra Shanee’ Purnell scored 13 points apiece, Domonique China added 11 points and Mathis tallied a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Purnell came within one rebound of recording a double-double.

Pfeiffer heads to Spartanburg , S.C. , Saturday to face Converse in non-conference action. The game will start at 2:00 pm.
