SALISBURY, NC -- Four players reached double figures as host Catawba defeated Virginia State 77-57 in women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at the Comfort Suites Classic at Goodman Gym. The Lady Indians improve to 5-0, while Virginia State falls to 0-4. In the opening game, Lenoir-Rhyne (5-0) got a last second basket to defeat North Greenville (1-5) 74-73. Catawba dominated the opening half and led 41-20 at the break. The Lady Indians canned 14-of-32 shots (43.8%), while Virginia State shots just 25% (6-of-24). Catawba also held a 25-16 edge on the boards in the opening 10 minutes and forced 11 turnovers to only five for the Lady Indians. Hannah Davis (Williamsburg, VA) opened the game for Catawba with a three-pointer and Isiaette Darden (Wilson, NC) scored six straight points as the Lady Indians would jump to an 11-0 lead. A jumper by Jenny Volpicelli (Concord, NC) gave the Lady Indians their largest lead of the game at 36-11. The shooting was reversed in the final half as Virginia State charged back to within five after a jumper by Erica Glasper (Richmond, VA), making the score 47-42 with 12:58 remaining. The Trojans hit eight of their first 11 shots of the half, while Catawba hit just 29% in the final stanza.

Virginia State made one last run, cutting the lead to 61-54 on a jumper by Jennifer Rhodan (Dale City, VA) with 6:24 remaining, but Catawba connected on ten straight free throws in the final 5:16 to seal the win. Cox was named the Classic MVP after leading Catawba with 13 points and eight assists with just one turnover.
