SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba College used strong second-half shooting to pull away from visiting North Greenville, recording a 97-71 win in menís basketball action on Monday night at Goodman Gym. Catawba improves to 7-2 with the win, its fifth straight, while the Crusaders fall to 2-9. The Indians led 43-36 at the break then canned nearly 60% (22-of-37) of their second-half shots, including 7-of-12 from three-point range. Catawba led 51-44 with 14:44 left when Brian Graves (Newport News, Va.) and Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, Iceland) connected on back-to-back threeís to spark a 10-0 run that put the Tribe up 61-44 with 13:09 remaining. Catawba would go up by 22 at 76-54 after a three-pointer by Jason Diggs (Christiansburg, Va.) with 7:46 to go and led by at least 20 the rest of the way. The largest lead came at 97-69 in the closing minute. North Greenville led only briefly at the start and a dunk by Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, N.C.) at the 15:31 mark of the opening half gave Catawba the lead for good at 8-6. Magnusson and freshman Jamel Hamilton (Virginia Beach, Va.) led Catawba with 17 points each. Magnusson had a dozen in the opening half, while Hamilton poured in 13 in the final stanza. Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, Va.) had 10 points. P.J. Schumacher (Waynesboro, Pa.) scored 12 points to pace North Greenville.
