Davis' career-best 25 points leads Women's Baskeball to 74-65 win

   SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba junior center Hannah Davis (Williamsburg, Va.) scored a career-high 25 points as the Lady Indians defeated visiting Presbyterian 74-65 in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action at Goodman Gym on Saturday afternoon.  The win allows Catawba avoid its first five-game losing streak in 20 years and ups the Lady Indians to 11-9 overall and 2-5 in the SAC.  The Blue Hose fall to 5-14 and 3-4.
Catawba played without its top two leading scorers and Davis provided the big offense punch, scoring 14 in the opening half.  She improved on her previous career-best of 20 points which she had set on Wednesday in a double-overtime loss to league-leading Wingate.  Davis also added eight rebounds.  Ingid Easter (Cana, Va.) and Christina Carmon (Stafford, Va.) each added 11 points and had nine and eight rebounds, respectively.  

The first half saw eight ties and four lead changes and the Lady Indians used a 7-2 run to close the half to take a 37-32 lead at the break.  Carmon had a three-point play and Danielle Scearce (Salisbury, N.C.) had two layups to end the half for Catawba.

Presbyterian fought back from a nine-point deficit to tie the game at 46-46 on a layup by Rebecca Wessinger (Laurens, S.C.) with 12:20 left.  From there, Catawba went on a 15-3 run to take a 12-point cushion, the largest lead on the night.  The Blue Hose would get within 61-58 on a three-point play by Anna Sheppard (Norcross, Ga.) at the 6:28 mark, but Carmon hit consecutive jumpers for Catawba to give the Lady Indians a 65-59 edge with 5::17 remaining.

Davis added two layups and Tamekia Foster (Chesapeake, Va.) two free throws as Catawba took a 71-61 lead with 1:51 left.  Wessinger scored 20 points to pace the Blue Hose, while Bridget Takach (Chapin, S.C.) had a dozen points and five steals off the bench.  Cameron Cook (Greensboro, N.C.) had 10 points with Brittany Carroll (Dunn, N.C.) posting a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Catawba shot just 40% for the game to 47% for the Blue Hose, but enjoyed a 47-32 edge on the boards.  The Lady Indians pulled down 24 offensive rebounds and held a 27-14 edge in second-chance points.  Presbyterian had shot 58% in the opening half, but cooled down to hit on 37% in the final 20 minutes.
