Women's Basketball shoots just 27% in loss at Winston-Salem

   WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Catawba College dropped a 69-56 decision to host Winston-Salem State in women’s basketball action on Friday night at the C.E. Gaines Center.  The loss drops the Lady Indians to 6-3, while WSSU improves to 7-2.    
    Winston-Salem State scored the first eight points of the second half and never trailed from that point.  A three-pointer by Christina Carmon (Stafford, Va.) at the 12:37 mark brought the Lady Indians as close as they would get in the final half at 40-36.  The Lady Rams would score five straight points at the line and get a jumper by Tiffany Tonkins (Greensboro, N.C.) to go up 47-36 with 10:27 left.

    Catawba pulled within five several times in the late going, the last time following a jumper by Kendall Prescott (Exeter, N.H.) with 3:27 to play.  The Lady Rams hit on 7-of10 free throws down the stretch to extend the lead.  Catawba shot just 28% for the game, while Winston-Salem connected on 46% and held a 44-41 edge on the boards.  

    The opening half featured seven ties and six lead changes with the game knotted at 26-26 after 20 minutes.  The largest lead for the Lady Indians came at the 13:14 mark of the opening half as Ashley Cox (Richmond, Va.) sank a three-pointer for a 12-9 advantage.  Winston-Salem moved out to a 24-18 lead with 4:30 remaining in the half on a jumper by Nikki Eason (Greenville, S.C.) and a layup by Cherena Douglass (Springfield, Ill.).

    Catawba would score the final four points of the half on a free throw by Cox and a three-point play by Temekia Foster (Chesapeake, Va.).  The Lady Rams held a slight 22-18 edge in rebounding in the opening half as both teams failed to shoot 40%.  Cox had nine points and five rebounds at the break for Catawba, while Shalonda Carter (Fayetteville, N.C.) had seven points and seven boards for the Lady Rams.

    Tonkins and Janet Robinson (Durham, N.C.) each had 14 points to pace four Lady Ram double-figure scorers.  Tonkins added seven rebounds and six blocked shots.  Kadina Baldwin (Fayetteville, N.C.) tallied a dozen points, while Eason had 11.  Carter had nine points and 14 rebounds.  Cox led Catawba with 16 points and eight rebounds.  Prescott came off the bench to score 13 points with eight boards.
