Cougars fall to #3 Florida Christian

The reigning South Region champs and current #3 in the nation came to Clearwater last night and proved too much for the Cougars. A season low 18 points in the first half was too much of a deficit for the Cougars to overcome. Clearwater had their hands full trying to keep the Suns off the offensive glass. The 35 offensive rebounds by the Suns gave them an edge in shot attempts and high percentage shots. The second half did show the characteristic Clearwater effort, and the Cougars were able to get on track on the offensive end of the court putting up 35 points and winning the half by 3.

Jonah Dew was the only Cougars in double figures with 13 followed by Austin Swierenga's 8 and Brina Horrach and Erik McRae's 7. Colin DeHate and Chris Thompson contributed 4 rebounds a piece. Erik paced the team with 3 assists.

The Cougars go on the road this weekend to take on Piedmont International University and Toccoa Falls College.
