Cougars Win Battle of Unbeatens, 81-80

C.J. Baxter's tip-in with 2 seconds to go lifted the Cougars to an 81-80, come from behind victory over Florida Christian in a match - up of undefeated region teams. After falling behind by 7 at the half, CCC came back and tied the score at 56 with about 11:00 to go in the game. Over the next 6 minutes FCC pulled back into the lead and seemed to have the game in control, leading by 10 points with a little over four minutes left. The Cougars battled back once again and cut the lead to 80-79 to set up Baxter's heroics. Matt Wells missed a 15 foot shot from the wing with 5 seconds to go and C.J. came down the lane to have the dramatic game winning tip-in.

Todd Wahlberg had a big night for the Cougars with 23 points and 14 rebounds. Matt Wells added 16 and Troy Hadlock chipped in 12 for CCC who now lead the South Region with a 6-0 mark.
