Hamiton nets 25 as Men's Basketball rolls past CN 97-72

SALISBURY, NC – Catawba exploded for 60 second-half points and rolled to a 97-72 win over visiting Carson-Newman in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  Catawba improves to 17-3 overall and 5-0 in the SAC, while the Eagles fall to 8-9 and 1-4.         
The Indians held a 37-36 edge at the break, but connected on 20 of their first 24 shots of the second half to take a commanding 85-52 lead with 7:18 remaining.  The Tribe finished at 69% shooting for the last half and hit on 63.5% for the game.  Carson-Newman made 38%.

The Eagles led early at 13-8, but Catawba scored 11 straight points to erase the deficit.  Carson-Newman rallied back and the game was tied three times before another Catawba spurt put the Indians up 30-24 with six minutes left in the opening half.  The Eagles took a 36-34 lead on a three-pointer by Darren Williams (Lawrenceville, GA) with 36 seconds left, but Jamel Hamilton (Virginia Beach, VA) answered with a three-pointer with 17 seconds left to give the Tribe its one-point lead at the half.

Catawba held a 42-40 lead before going on a 27-3 run to put the game away with 10:34 left.  Catawba, which hit just one three-pointer in the opening half, canned seven in the first 12 minutes of the second half, capped by Hamilton’s with 8:43 left to put the Indians up 80-49.

Hamilton led all scorers with 25 points for Catawba, hitting on 9-of-10 from the floor with a trio of three-pointers.  Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) scored 11 points and had eight assists, while Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, NC) scored 10 points, hitting all five of his field goals to raise his season percentage to 73.5%.  Williams had 12 points to pace the Eagles, while Scott Williams (Macon, GA) and Clay Scott (Jefferson, GA) each had 10 points.
