Men's Basketball pulls off second straight upset to advance to SAC Championship

HICKORY, NC – The seventh-seeded Catawba College Indians advanced to the finals of the 2004 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament, upsetting Carson-Newman, the No. 3 seed in the semifinals of the tournament, 68-61, Saturday evening. The Indians (11-18), who upended No. 2 Tusculum on Friday, takes on Newberry College in the championship game Sunday at 2 p.m., at Catawba Valley Community College. The Eagles saw their nine-game winning streak come to an end and finished the year 18-10. Carson-Newman led by as many as nine in the second half, 39-30 with 16:08 left in regulation, before Catawba reeled off 10 straight points to take a 40-39 lead at the 13:09 mark of the second half. The Indians would take the lead for good on a three-pointer by sophomore forward Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) to make it 45-43 with 10:50 left in the contest. The Indians’ would extend the lead to as much as 11 en route to the win. Catawba senior guard Duke Phipps (Newport News, Va.) led all scores with 19 points to go along with nine rebounds while Magnusson added 17 points for the Indians. “I’m tickled for our kids,” said Catawba coach Jim Baker. “This is not even the same team as a week ago. I can’t explain it.” Baker credited a zone defense that neutralized Carson-Newman’s inside play and the Eagles struggled from the perimeter. The Indians also seem comfortable in the CVCC gym, where they are now 6-1 in conference tournament games all-time. “I told the guys, ‘This is our house,’ and they bought into it,” Baker said. The Indians shot 53 percent from the field (27-of-51) compared to Carson-Newman’s 39 percent (24-for-62). The Eagles also hit just five-of-20 (25 percent) from behind the three-point line. Carson-Newman had three players in double figures including senior forward Todd Lucas’ (Eustis, Fla.) team-high 12 points. “When you’re not shooting well, that’s a good time to play zone,” said Carson-Newman coach Dale Clayton. “Their zone was very good for them. When you’re not making shots, you start getting hesitant.” CATAWBA COLLEGE 68, CARSON-NEWMAN COLLEGE 61 CATAWBA COLLEGE (11-18) Phipps, Duke 7-13 4-4 19; Magnusson, Helgi 5-11 5-6 17; Woolridge, Chris 5-6 0-0 10; Graves, Brian 3-6 1-4 8; Manning, Jolly 3-3 0-0 6; Gibson, Jorvewe 2-3 0-0 4; Reddick, Marcus 1-4 0-0 2; Frasier, Brian 1-5 0-0 2.
