Men's Basketball drops first league game at Wingate in overtime

WINGATE, N.C. -- Wingate got 25 points from Ernest Mangum (New London, N.C.), including 10 in overtime, as the Bulldogs knocked off visiting Catawba 101-93 in overtime in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Cuddy Arena.  The Bulldogs improve to 9-8 overall and 3-3 in the SAC, while Catawba suffers its first league loss, falling to 17-4 and 5-1.
    Catawba’s Brian Graves (Newport News, Va.) sent the game to overtime as he connected on a three-pointer with 5.5 seconds left in regulation to knot the score at 83-83.  The Bulldogs had a chance to win in regulation but Justin Baker missed a layup as time expired.        

    The Indians took an 86-83 edge in the extra frame, but Mangum tied it with a three-pointer and hit two from well behind the arc to extend the Wingate edge to 96=89 with 1:24 left.  The Bulldogs did enough from the line from that point as Catawba suffered through its third worst shooting performance of the year at 40.4%.    

    Mangum connected on 8-of-11 from three-point range in the game to lead five Bulldog double-figure scorers.  Shaun Kirkland (Allendale, S.C.) had 20 points, while Sam Carlisle (Raleigh, N.C.) notched a career-high double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds.  Bryan Grier (Charlotte, N.C.) contributed a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

        Jamel Hamilton (Virginia Beach, Va.) led Catawba with 22 points, while Brian Graves (Newport News, Va.) had 20 points and nine rebounds.  Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, Va.) chipped in with a double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds.

    Catawba trailed by 10 early in the contest, but fought back to tie the score at 26-26 on a Jason Diggs (Christiansburg, Va.) jumper with 9:26 to go in the first half.  Wingate would go back up by a dozen late in the half before settling for a 49-41 edge at the break.

    Hamilton scored eight points early in the second half to bring the Tribe within 52-51 in the opening three minutes and Andy Thomson (Poynton, England) gave Catawba a 55-54 edge with 15:16 to play.  The Indians would lead by as many as five points , before the Bulldogs surged back ahead with 3:20 remaining.

    Catawba overcame a five-point deficit in the final two minutes on a pair of free throws by Wooldridge with 1:55 left and getting Graves’ three-pointer in the final seconds.
