Magnusson tallies 23 as Men's Basketball earns win at Aiken

AIKEN, SC -- Catawba College defeated host USC-Aiken 73-66 in men's basketball action on Wednesday night at the Courthouse. Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) scored a game-high 23 points and added eight rebounds, four steals, three assists and one block to lead the Indians, now 3-2 overall. The Pacers, which fall to 3-3, got 10 points each from Franchot Brown, Arnold Coates and Curt Triplin. Catawba led by seven at halftime but scored the first eight points of the second half to jump out to a 15-point advantage, 42-27, with 18:02 left in the game. Magnusson connected on two three-pointers during the run. Three-pointers by Richard Blocker at the 14:18 mark and Josh Geyer with 13:01 on the clock drew USCA to within five, 46-41, but Magnusson and Rokus Bartasius (Kaunus, LITHUANIA) combined to push Catawba back out to a comfortable lead. Magnusson hit on a lay-up and two free throws and Bartasius connected on two lay-ups and a free throw for a 9-0 run that gave CC a 55-41 lead with 11:18 left to play. Bartasius made six-of-eight from the field and one-of-two from the free throw line to finish with 14 points. Two Magnusson free throws with 8:24 remaining gave Catawba its largest lead of the game, 16 points, 61-45. Magnusson made seven-of-13 from the floor, two-of-seven from beyond the three point arch and seven-of-eight from the charity stripe for his game-high 23 points. The Pacers put together one more run to close within five points with less than a minute to go. Two treys by Richard Glover keyed a 12-3 run for USCA. Coates capped it off with a dunk that cut the Catawba advantage to 69-64 with 48 seconds showing on the clock. The Indians made four-of-six from the free throw stripe in the final 40 seconds to seal the win. Blocker nailed a three-pointer 22 seconds into the game to give the Pacers an early 3-0 lead. Catawba stormed back with nine unanswered to go in front 9-3 with just under 16 minutes left in the first half. Five straight points by Trent Boyd and Triplin closed the gap to just two points, 27-25, with 2:35 showing on the clock but the Tribe ended the first half with a 7-2 run, including five points from Bartasius, and took a 34-27 lead into the locker room at halftime. Triplin finished with nine rebounds to go along with his 10 points. Brown added 10 rebounds to his 10 points for the freshman's first career double-double.
