Men's Basketball beats Pfeiffer to open season

SALISBURY, NC — Catawba College won a showdown of a pair of teams from last year’s NCAA Division II field of 48 as the Indians defeated neighboring Pfeiffer 98-90 in men’s basketball action on Saturday night at Goodman Gym. It was the opener for both teams. Catawba took a 49-47 lead at the break in the fast-paced shootout. The Indians would never trail again, but could never fully put the Falcons away. The Indians led by 12 with 12:14 to play, then saw Pfeiffer trim the edge back to five in a span of two minutes. Again the Tribe would lead by double digits at 82-69 with 8:16 left, but again Pfeiffer stormed back, cutting the deficit to 86-82 with 4:03 remaining. Senior Quentin Bryant (Badin, NC) made the biggest basket of the night for Catawba with two minutes to play. Leading only 87-84, the forward banked in an off balance three-pointer at the top of the key as the shot clock expired to extend the lead to six points. Pfeiffer would close to within four with 36 seconds left, but Catawba hit on six of eight free throws down the stretch to hold on for the win. Junior Brian Carter (Alexandria, VA) led four Indians who reached double figures with a career-high 31 points on 12-of-17 shooting. He added seven rebounds, three blocks and a pair of steals. Senior Terrence Hamilton (Dillon, SC) returned for his injury last season and tossed in 16 points with five boards. Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC) scored 16 points and dished out six assists with five steals, while Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) had 15 points and nine assists. Terrence McCutcheon (Mobile, AL) led Pfeiffer with 24 points, while Darrin Wallace (Cape Coral, FL) added 10 points off the bench. Catawba out-shot the Falcons 57% to 42%, but were defeated on the boards 50-38, including 26 offensive rebounds by Pfeiffer. The teams traded the lead several times in the opening half with Pfeiffer leading by as many as nine points midway through the half. Catawba would grab regain the lead at 34-33 with 5:57 left on a layin by Carter and never trailed again. Carter tossed in 20 of his career-high 31 points in the opening half. #######
