Bench comes up big in Men's Basketball win at PC

CLINTON, S.C. -- Catawba, the 2005 South Atlantic Conference Champions, won for the 13th time in its last 14 outings as the Indians defeated host Presbyterian 67-57 in menís basketball action on Saturday afternoon at the Templeton Center. The Indians, who will host Newberry in the opening round of the Food Lion SAC Tournament on Wednesday, improve to 22-5 overall and 12-2 in the SAC. Presbyterian, who had its 14-game home winning streak snapped, falls to 17-10 and 8-6. The Catawba starters scored just 26 points, but sophomore Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, Va.) and freshman Jamel Hamilton (Virginia Beach, Va.) came off the bench to score 17 points apiece to pace the Tribe. Wooldridge hit on 7-of-8 shots and added four rebounds, two steals and two blocks. Hamilton canned 5-of-8 from the floor, including a trio of three-pointers. The Indians began to pull away midway through the opening half. Hamilton connected on a three-pointer at the 11:56 mark of the opening half to give Catawba a lead it would not relinquish at 11-9. Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) and Hamilton followed with consecutive three-pointers to stretch its edge to 17-9. Presbyterian closed within 23-20 with six minutes in the half, but the Indians closed with a 14-6 run to grab a 37-26 lead at the break. Magnusson hit a three-pointer for the Tribe to begin the second half and push the lead to 40-26 and Catawba held a double-digit margin most of the half. The Blue Hose crawled within six at 60-54 with three minutes to play following a three-point play by Grant Herron (Oviedo, Fla.), but Wooldridge answered with a jumper and the Indians canned five-of-six free throws in the final minute. Catawba shot 52% for the game and held the Blue Hose to only 33.9% to help offset a 38-30 rebounding disadvantage. Johann Collins (Raleigh, N.C.) led all scorers with 22 for PC. Sean Dixon (Marietta, Ga.) also reached double digits with 12. #####
