Men's Basketball escapes with 92-90 win over Aiken


   SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba placed six players in double figures and held off visiting USC Aiken 92-90 in men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The 17th-ranked Indians improve to 6-0, while USCA falls to 2-3.
Terrence Woodbury (Melbourne, FL) led all scorers with 34 points in a losing effort for the Pacers.  His putback with six seconds left brought USCA within 91-90.  Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) made one of two free throws for Catawba with five seconds to play and Lukas Varga (Myrtle Beach, SC) came up short on a three-pointer at the buzzer for the Pacers.

Woodbury scored 26 of his points after the break as the Indians could never pull away from USCA.  Andy Thomson (Poynton, ENGLAND) gave Catawba a 56-49 lead on a three-pointer with 13:27 left, but Aiken rallied on 12 straight points by Woodbury to take a 61-60 lead at the 10:05 mark.

Catawba surged back ahead by 10 at 85-75 with 3:05 remaining, but again Aiken clawed its way back.  A three-point play by Woodbury and a three-pointer by Kenny Burr (Lexington, SC) cut the margin to 89-86 with 1:19 left.  Ahmad Murphy (Orangeburg, SC) hit a pair of free throws for Catawba with Chris Brown (Columbia, SC) canning two from the line for Aiken to make the score 91-88 before the Woodbury putback.

The Indians hit on 11 of their first 15 shots to grab an early 25-9 advantage.  Aiken would rally back to take a 38-36 lead with two minutes left and trailed only 42-40 at the break.  Catawba would shoot 53% for the game to 48% for Aiken, but the Pacers held a 42-33 edge on the boards and out-scored the Indians 21-5 in second-chance points.

Magnusson led Catawba with 18 points, while Jamel Hamilton (Virginia Beach, VA) added 17 points.  Thomson followed with 14 points, Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) 12, Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, NC) 11 and Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) 10.  Graves dished out 10 assists to complete a double-double.  Wooldridge added six blocked shots.

Woodbury also posted a double-double, adding 11 rebounds, as did Richard Blocker (Tampa, FL), who had 13 points and 12 rebounds.  Burr tallied 16 points and Brown 12.
