Buzzer Beater downs Sea Devils

Cape Fear C.C. Press Release

Trailing by two with 18-seconds to go in the game, Coach Lori Drake called a timeout  and her Lady Sea Devils executed the play to perfection to tie the game at 87-all, but a last second buzzer beater lifted Wake Tech to an 89-87 win at the Schwartz Center on Wednesday night.

"It was another tough loss tonight," said Drake. "We put ourselves in a position to at least force the game into overtime, but you have to give them credit and when they dribble the length of the floor and throw it up and hit a bank shot, it's just a tough way to lose a game."

Four Cape Fear players scored in double-figures, led by Porsha Buchanan, who finished with a team-high 23 points. Eboni Gilliam recorded a double-double (12 points and 16 rebounds), while Shakerya Morrison and Kristina Rumplasch combined for 33 points.

The Sea Devils (4-7, 12-7) have now lost four straight and look to end the skid this weekend with back-to-back games against Tidewater CC (Saturday, Feb. 8) and Sunday, Feb. 9 at Louisburg.
