Coastal Carolina women drop conference game to Presbyterian

From staff reportsDecember 29, 2012 

— Coastal Carolina couldn’t catch a break Saturday, as turnovers and poor shooting proved to be their downfall in a 50-30 loss to Presbyterian College.

Hampered by injuries, the Chanticleers’ Kayla Cook and Alexx Puckett each scored 10 to pick up the slack. Leading scorer Shatia Cole was sidelined with an injury sustained against North Florida. Sophomore Savanah Pippin secured seven boards to finish the game as Coastal’s top rebounder.

Presbyterian College’s Karlee Taylor led all scorers with 19 points on 6-of-9 from the floor, including 5-of-7 from beyond the arc. Shonda Burnside joined Taylor in double figures with 13 points.

The Chanticleers gave up 18 turnovers and struggled throughout the game offensively finishing with a season low 19.6 shooting percentage.

Heading into the second half, Coastal was unable to rally against a double-digit deficit as Presbyterian College remained strong until the end.

The Chanticleers will get ready for Campbell on Jan. 3
