SALISBURY, NC -- Carson-Newman rallied from a 14-point second half deficit and defeated host Catawba 63-62 in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym. The Lady Eagles improve to 11-6 overall and 4-1 in the SAC, while Catawba falls to 6-12 and 1-4.
Carson-Newman trailed 47-33 four minutes into the second half, but limited Catawba to just 15 points the rest of the way in recording the win. The Lady Eagles took their first lead of the final half at 59-58 on a pair of free throws by Ashley Tipton (Knoxville, TN) with 1:43 to go. Nicole Avrett (Shirley, AR) pushed the edge to 61-58 on a jumper at the 1:07 mark.
Following a Catawba turnover, Gabrielle Smith (Kansas City, MO) upped the margin to 62-58 with 29 seconds remaining. Ingrid Easter (Cana, VA) trimmed the deficit to 62-60 on a putback with 11 seconds left. Avrett made one of two free throws with 10 second to play, but Hillary Hampton (Salisbury, NC) misfired on a three-point attempt to tie the game and Tamekia Foster’s (Chesapeake, VA) putback at the buzzer left Catawba a point behind.
Carson-Newman controlled the early action, taking an 18-10 lead after seven minutes. Catawba would use a 13-1 run to grab a 23-19 lead with 9:15 to go in the opening half. Catawba built its lead to 15 before the half and took a 40-30 edge at halftime.
