Men's Basketball tied for SAC lead after win at Carson-Newman


   JEFFERSON CITY, TN -- Catawba shot 50% from the floor in both the first and second half on their way to a 75-61 win over the Carson-Newman Eagles in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday night at Holt Fieldhouse.  Catawba moves into a three-way tie atop the league standings, improving to 21-6 overall and 9-3 in the SAC.  The Eagles fall to 9-14 and 3-8.
Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, NC) had a good all-around game as he led the Indians with 14 points.  He also added four rebounds, two assists, three blocks and two steals.  Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) had 12 points and seven rebounds and Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) had 12 points.  The Indians had 11 blocked shots on the night, led by Andy Thomson’s (Poynton, ENGLAND) four.  Catawba also out-rebounded C-N 50-27 in the game.

The Eagles were led in scoring by Darren Williams (Lawrenceville, GA) who had 12. Andrew Johnson (Cairo, GA) added 11 points for C-N.  The Eagles forced the Indians into 22 turnovers and scored 24 points off of them.

Catawba jumped out to a 15-6 lead on a three-pointer by Jamel Hamilton (Virginia Beach, VA) seven minutes into the game.  The Eagles came back to take an 18-17 lead on a Darren Williams jumper four minutes later, but the Indians claimed the lead for good when Graves nailed a three-pointer at the 7:36 mark.  Catawba led 35-28 at the half.

Just as they did in the first game between the two teams, the Indians built a big lead early in the second half and never looked back.  Catawba held a 25-point lead on two occasions in the second half before the Eagles rebounded to cut the final deficit to 14 when Johnson connected on a three-pointer with 23 seconds remaining.
