PEMBROKE, N.C. -- Tasha Stotler tallied 16 points, while four other Lady Braves scored in double-digits to lead The University of North Carolina at Pembroke to a 79-73 win over visiting Catawba in women’s basketball action on Tuesday night in the Jones Center. With the victory in their home opener, the Braves improve to 3-0, while the Lady Indians fall to 0-3. Tamekia Foster, who recorded 16 points and eight boards, paced Catawba with Hannah Davis adding 15 points and seven rebounds. Selia Monroe also had a solid night for the Indians with 14 points and three assists. Natalie Ray, Lauren Lingenfelter, Lindsay Bartholf and Tracey Lightfoot joined Stotler in double figures for the Braves. Ray posted 13, Lingenfelter had 12, while Bartholf scored 11 and Lightfoot added ten. Bartholf, who also had game-high seven assists, and Ray led the Braves on the glass with five rebounds each. UNCP had a slim six-point advantage at the break thanks to an 11-2 run in the waning minutes of the first period. Trailing 29-26, Bartholf hit two straight threes to give the Lady Braves a 32-31 lead. Lingenfelter then drained a jumper, while Willis capped off the run with a three of her own to push the UNCP lead to 37-31. The two squads then traded baskets to make the halftime score 39-33. The Braves then went on an 8-2 spurt to open the half opening the score up to 48-35. Catawba battled back however to get the score to within two, 54-52 with 11:25 remaining in the game. Following a jumper by Catawba’s Eric Hackett that came immediately after two straight UNCP buckets, the Braves began to pull away pushing the lead back to 12, 73-61 with only 4:14 to go. The Indians did not give up however, getting as close as 73-68 with 40 ticks remaining, but Pembroke posted six free throws down the stretch to ice it. In action over the weekend Catawba dropped a 76-57 decision to Livingstone and fell 70-66 to St. Augusine’s in a tournament at Livingstone. In the opener, the Lady Indians held a 34-24 lead at the break, but shot just 31% in the second half. Davis led the ladies with 14 points and eight rebounds. Freshman Brittany Higgins tossed in 12 points, while Hillary Hampton added 11. The Lady Indians were out-rebounded 45-32 in the loss to St. Augustine’s, but did cut the turnovers down to 10 from 28 against Livingstone. Four players reached double figures, led by Hampton with 11. Foster, Ingrid Easter and freshman Cameron Clark each had 10. Foster added eight rebounds. #####
