Blue Hose women are 3rd in the Big South Conference.

Presbyterian College women's basketball took sole possession of 3rd in the Big South Conference, as the men fell also in conference action in a Saturday double-header at Templeton Center. Southern Strut filled the court for a spirited men's half-time show that drew a near-capacity crowd to the on-campus arena.

The women defeated Gardner-Webb, 60-53, moving to 12-8 overall and 8-3 in the conference (G-W is 13-8). Taylor Petty led scoring with 16 points, Janie Miles scored 15. PC went on a 7-0 run at the end of the 3rd quarter to open up a 38-34 lead. The Blue Hose had another 7-0 run with 6:29 left on the game clock to forge a 10-point lead.

PC women return to the home court Monday against Longwood (conference game).

The PC men fell to 8-13 with a 65-61 loss to 9-15 Liberty. The Flames hit 3 of their final 4 free throws to seal the win. DeSean Murray - NCAA men's basketball #24 scorer - scored 23 points. Ed Drew and Reggie Dillard added 9 each. Liberty had 3 players in double figures. Liberty led 53-44 with 10:43 left to play, before PC hit a 5-0 run setting the stage for the late free throw shooting contest.

PC men return to the home court Wednesday against Coastal Carolina (conference game).
