Cougars Lose to Pensacola Christian 73-70

The Cougars lose to Pensacola Christian 73-70. CCC and the Eagles from PCC had another hard fought battle on the hardwood, Friday night in the Cougar Gym.

The first half went back and forth and came to exciting finish as Luke Brigham tied the score with a buzzer beater from behind the half court line. After a 33-33 half-time score that saw both teams struggling to put the ball in the basket, the intensity picked up in the second half. Strong rebounding by the bigger PCC team gave them an edge as they built a 10 point lead with about 6 minutes to go in the game. CCC clawed their way back in by tough defense and a full court press and took the lead, 69-68, with 2 minutes to go in the game. The lead was short lived as Pensacola outscored CCC 5-2 to close out the contest. The Cougars had a 25' three at the buzzer that was wide.

Luke Brigham led CCC in scoring with 15 points. Tristan Shore chipped in 14 for the Cougars, and Todd Wahlberg added 11.
