Magnusson brothers spark Men's Basketball to win over N.C. Central


   SALISBURY, NC -- Shaw and host Catawba picked up wins in men’s basketball action at the Walt Baker Classic sponsored by C.F. Parks on Saturday at Goodman Gym.  Shaw (1-5) defeated Lenoir-Rhyne (3-3) 80-74, while Catawba (8-0) took a 90-76 decision over N.C. Central (1-6).
Catawba, ranked 17th in NCAA II, built a 41-25 halftime lead and led by double figures nearly the entire second half.  The Eagles cut the margin to nine early in the second half, but Catawba connected on three straight three pointers, two by Finnur Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) and the other by brother, Helgi, to push the Tribe lead to 56-40 with 14:05 remaining,.

 Jamel Hamilton (Virginia Beach, VA) came off the bench to lead Catawba with 18 points, while Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, NC) added 15 points and five rebounds.  The Indians hit on 12 three-pointers for the game.  Chris Tyrance (Garner, NC) led the Eagles with 18 points, while Chris Prince (Washington, DC) added 15 points.  Charles Futrell (Fayetteville, NC) had 11 points and nine rebounds.

 Catawba ran out to a quick 8-0 lead and never trailed.  The Indians led by as many as 20 points with five minutes remaining before the half.  N.C. Central enjoyed a 45-34 edge on the boards, but Catawba had just 12 turnovers to 19 for the Eagles.

Shaw erased a six-point halftime deficit early in the final half and went on to record its first win of the season.  Josh Rudder (Graham, NC), who led all-scorers with 21 points, connected on a three-pointer to give L-R a 43-40 lead, but Shaw went on a 14-1 run to grab a 54-44 lead after a three pointer by Brandon Green (Slidell, LA) with 11:45 left.

Lenoir-Rhyne pulled within five with 29 seconds left, but Shaw canned four-of-six at the line to hold on for the win.  Marcus Jennings (Bakersfield, CA) and John Kornegay (Detroit, MI) each scored 14 points to pace Shaw.  Ron Colbert (Decatur, AL) added 12 points, while Daniel Jackson (Lake Wales, FL) added 10 points and seven rebounds.

Shaw shot 57% in the final half, while Lenoir-Rhyne hit on just 35% of its attempts.  Shaw also held a 40-32 edge on the boards and made 21-of-31 free throws in the final half.
