NEWBERRY, S.C. -- Catawba College dominated the boards over the final five minutes and took a 63-54 decision over host Newberry in South Atlantic Conference menís basketball action on Wednesday night at Eleazer Arena. Catawba improves to 18-4 overall and 8-1 in the SAC, improving its season-long winning streak to nine games. Newberry falls to 7-15 and 2-8. Catawba broke a 50-50 tie on a pair of free throws by Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) with 4:36 left and the Tribe held a 9-4 edge on the boards in the final four minutes. Jamel Hamilton (Virginia Beach, Va.) added two more free throws and a jumper by Brian Graves (Newport News, Va.) with 2:55 left pushed the Catawba lead to 56-50. The Indians made five of six free throws in the final minute to secure the win. Catawba got out of the gates quickly and led 18-7 after a layup by Hamilton with 11:39 remaining in the opening half. Newberry would settle down from there and tied the game at 21-21 on a three-pointer by Corey Etheridge at the 8:03 mark. Catawba never relinquished the lead and took a 35-29 edge to the break. Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, N.C.) gave Catawba a 44-39 with a free throw at the 14:59 mark. But the Tribe would not score again until Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, Va.) hit a pair from the line to tie the game at 46-46 with 9:13 left. Etheridge had given Newberry its first lead of the contest on a three-pointer with 12:12 to go. Magnusson added two free throws with 8:38 left to put Catawba back on top and the game was tied twice until the Tribe pulled away in the last five minutes. Magnusson had 13 points and seven rebounds for Catawba, while Graves added 11 points. Hamilton had nine points, while Wooldridge and Andy Thomson (Poynton, ENGLAND) each added eight points. Michael Dease scored 13 to lead Newberry, while Eric Nwawel had 12 points and 10 rebounds. Neither team shot well in the final half, hitting only 26 with Catawba making 5-of-19 and Newberry 8-of-31.
