"It was another team effort, with 11 different guys contributing," said Pfeiffer coach Dave Davis. "Thomas Carr is seeing that hard work does pay off as he was 4-6 from behind the arc, the second game in a row he has made four 3-pointers. We again won the rebounding battle against a much bigger Anderson team, and Cooper continues to lead us in this area. Our defense is much improved and if we continue to defend and rebound, we will be a difficult team to beat."

The final regular season home game of the season will be this Thursday February 22nd against CVAC leading and #24 ranked Barton College. This game will be the last for seniors DeMario Grier, Tavares Cooper and Derick Brown. Tip-off will be at 7:30pm in Merner Gymnasium
