Baker notches 200th win as Men's Basketball rolls past Carson-Newman

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba shot 55% and out-gunned visiting Carson-Newman, recording a 91-76 win in South Atlantic Conference menís basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym. The win marks the 11th in the last 12 games for the Indians, who improve to 20-5 overall and 10-2 in the SAC and stay atop the league standings. The Eagles fall to 10-15 and 5-7. The win also marks the 200th in his career for Catawba coach Jim Baker, who becomes the first SAC coach to reach the milestone in just 11 seasons. Tied at 10-10, Catawba got a spark from senior Marcus Reddick (Salisbury, N.C.), who hit a jumper and a three-pointer to start a 9-0 run that gave the Tribe a 19-10 lead at the 13:20 mark of the opening frame. The Eagles were within five at 29-24 after a layup by Braun Dabbs (Greeneville, Tenn.) and trailed 35-27 after a free throw by Amonzo Gantt (Royston, Ga.), but Catawba hit on three straight three-pointers and closed the half on a 20-8 run to take a 55-35 advantage. The Eagles shot well in the opening half at 51%, but had 12 turnovers to just three for Catawba, which shot 55% in each half. Catawba built its lead to 64-38 early in the second half and led 73-50 at the 11:49 mark when the Eagles made a run. A three-pointer by Darren Williams (Lawrenceville, Ga.) and a three-point play by Marquise Foster (Greenville, S.C.) cut the Catawba lead to 75-64 with 8:15 remaining. Catawba answered the run with three straight baskets to go up 81-64 and built back a 20-point cushion at 89-69 in the closing minutes. Brain Graves (Newport News, Va.) scored 16 points and dished out 10 assists for the Indians, while Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) also had 16 points and completed a double-double by adding 11 rebounds. Ahmad Murphy (Orangeburg, S.C.) scored 11 points, all in the opening half. Zach Snyder (Lexington, Ky.) and James McLean (Newport News, Va.), joined Reddick as Catawba seniors playing their final regular season home game. Dabbs led Carson-Newman with 21 points, while Foster had 18 points and seven rebounds. Williams added 11 points off the bench, with Andy Tipton (Maryville, Tenn.) chipping in with 10 points. The Eagles finished the game with 26 turnovers to 16 for the Tribe. #####
