Women's Basketball comes up short against Lenoir-Rhyne

   SALISBURY, N.C. -- Lenoir-Rhyne held off host Catawba to claim a 63-60 win in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action at Goodman Gym on Saturday afternoon.  The win improves the Bears to 12-9 overall and 5-3 in the SAC, while Catawba falls to 11-10 and 2-6.
The Bears led by nine with 15 seconds to play, but Catawba’s Isiaette Darden (Wilson, N.C.) hit three-pointers with seven and three seconds remaining to bring the Lady Indians within 6-60.  Catawba would knock the ball loose on the ensuing in-bounds play, but could not gain control before the horn sounded.  

Catawba had been within 57-54 with two minutes left, but a steal and layup by Sandi Hyall (Albemarle, N.C.) put the Bears on top 59-54.  Lenoir-Rhyne would make four of six free throws from that point to go up 63-54.  The Bears led the entire second half, but never by double-digits.

The Lady Indians held a 22-21 late in the first half before Lenoir-Rhyne went on top for good on a pair of free throws by Ashley Gordon (Fort Eustis, Fla.) with 1:51 to go.  Kristin Barringer (Greenville, S.C.) hit a jumper and a three-pointer to push the edge to 28-22 inside the final minute.

Lanica Williams (Newport News, Va.) scored 12 points to pace the Bears with Shea Blacknell (Chapel Hill, N.C.) and Crystal Clary (Hampton, Va.) each adding 10.  Catawba’s Hannah Davis (Williamsburg, Va.) led all scorers with a career-high 29 points.  She hit on 11-of-17 from the field, including 4-of-7 from three-point range.
