Women's Basketball falls in double overtime to league leaders

   SALISBURY, N.C.. -- Wingate outscored Catawba 15-8 in the second overtime to earn an 86-79 win over host Catawba in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gymnasium. The win snapped a Lady Indian 11-game winning streak over the Bulldogs.  Wingate remains atop the SAC standings, improving to 13-6 overall and 6-0 in the league.  Catawba falls to 10-9 and 1-5.
    Five Bulldogs hit double-figures.  Lakin Byer (Bassett, Va.) led all scorers with 23 points off the Bulldog bench.  Petra Nagy (Budapest, Hungary) added 16 points, while Emily Paffrath (Bakersville, N.C.) notched a double-double with 14 points and a career-high 15 rebounds.  Veronica Taylor (Columbia, S.C.) recorded her 24th career double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Tanetra Barrett (Marshville, N.C.) contributed 12 points, eight rebounds and six assists.

    For Catawba, Ashley Cox (Richmond, Va.) led the way with 22 points, while Hannah Davis (Williamsburg, Va.) established two career-highs with her double-double of 20 points and 14 rebounds. Tamekia Foster (Chesapeake, Va.) had her own double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds. Foster’s 14 boards are a career-best.

    The game was tied 71-71 entering the second overtime. Cox opened the period with a three-pointer to give the hosts a 74-71 lead.  Byer hit a follow shot and Nagy hit a three-pointer to give Wingate the lead for good at 76-74 with 3:17 to play.  Nagy had eight points in the second extra frame, including five-of-six free throws to keep the Indians at bay.

    Both teams had a chance to win at the end of the first overtime.  Barrett missed a short jumper with less than 10 seconds remaining.  Cox’s three-pointer at the first overtime buzzer was no good, giving the fans five more minutes of free basketball.  Byer forced the first extra frame, following her own miss with ten seconds remaining in regulation to tie the game at 65-65.  A driving shot by Catawba’s Christina Carmon (Stafford, Va.) was blocked by Paffrath as time expired in the first overtime.    

Two free throws by Davis gave the Indians 59-53 lead with 7:17 to go in regulation. The six-point advantage was Catawba’s biggest edge in regulation. The Indians scored the first 10 points of the second half to erase a 35-26 halftime deficit. A jumper by Foster put the hosts up 36-35 with 16:52 left in the second half.

    In the first half, Wingate ended the period with a 15-3 run to take a 35-26 lead at intermission. Five different Bulldogs scored during the flurry. Barrett and Paffrath had four points each as Wingate took its nine-point lead on a Barrett jumper with 37 seconds left in the opening frame.

    Davis had 14 points in the first half for Catawba. The Naval Academy transfer hit six-of-eight field goals in the first 20 minutes. The other Indians had trouble finding the hoop, as Davis’ teammates hit only four-of-18 attempts (22.2 percent) in the first stanza.
