Hamilton scores 20 as Men's Basketball wins at Virginia StatePETERSBURG, VA Ė Catawba College overcame a slow start, while freshman Jamel Hamilton (Virginia Beach, VA) equaled a career-high with 20 points as the Indians defeated host Virginia State 72-64 in menís basketball action on Saturday night at Daniel Gymnasium. Catawba improves to 6-2 with the win, while the Trojans fall to 3-4. Virginia State scored the opening five points and raced to a 16-8 lead at the mid-point of the opening half. Down six inside the final five minutes of the half, Jason Diggs (Christiansburg, VA) hit a three-pointer and Zach Snyder (Lexington, NC) a jumper at the 2:39 mark to put the Tribe up 22-21. A three-point play by Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) with 30 seconds remaining in the half gave the Tribe a 30-27 lead at the break. The Indians were out-rebounded 21-14 in the opening half, but held the Trojans to just 35% shooting and had nine turnovers to 15 for Virginia State. Catawba extended its lead to seven early in the second half, but Virginia State rallied and grabbed a 39-38 lead on a three-pointer by Michael Askew. Hamilton, who scored just three points in the opening half, poured in 17 in the final 13 minutes, including a three-pointer with 12:44 remaining to give the Indians the lead for good at 45-42. That three started a stretch of 13 straight points for the freshman that left the Tribe up 55-49 with 8:50 remaining. The Indians would score just two field goals from that point, a layup by Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) and another by Hamilton, but cashed in on 13-of-18 free throws to hold off the Trojans. Hamilton hit on 7-of-11 from the field with a pair of three-pointers to lead the Tribe. Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) totaled 12 points, hitting on 8-of-10 at the line, and added six rebounds, while Graves tossed in 11. Bryan Scott had 14 points off the bench to lead Virginia State with Kanandi Hall adding 10 points and eight rebounds. The Trojans held a 50-34 edge on the boards, but shot just 33% to 44% for Catawba, while committing 23 turnovers. #####
