COSBY—It was raining three pointers at Cosby on Friday night as the Eagles pulled away for an easy victory over Berean Christian on senior night, 72-55.

Cosby drained 11 treys throughout the night, as several players stepped up in the scoring column.
The Eagles ended up having five in double figures.

Kyal Clevenger and Bryson Valentine each led with 14 points. Keenan Phillips tacked on 13 points, while Michael Hood had 11. Derrick Norris also had 10 points.

"Berean (Christian) poses so many problems, and that's what I told our guys,"ť Cosby head coach Brad Flatford said. "They played two guys inside that are six-foot-five or bigger. We've not seen a whole lot of that, and even though they're a young team, they've gotten a lot better as the year has went on. It was good for us to see their size tonight.
"I thought we shot the ball well. In the second quarter we kind of picked up our defensive intensity. We gave up 13 points in the first, but we held them down in the second. We also had some big minutes from some guys coming off the bench."
