Men's Basketball falls out of league lead with loss to Wingate
SALISBURY, NC – Wingate rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to defeat host Catawba 94-91 in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. The win snapped a 13-game losing streak by the Bulldogs at Goodman Gym and gave Coach Parker Laketa his 100th victory. Wingate improves to 14-12 overall and 7-6 in the SAC, while the Indians fall to 21-7 and 9-4 in the SAC and sees their 21-game home win streak end.
Catawba jumped to a 9-2 lead in the opening minutes while Wingate rallied to tie the score at 13-13 five minutes into the half. From there, the Indians would build a 12-point cushion and led 42-32 at the break. The Bulldogs cut the double-digit deficit to a single point at 53-52 early in the second half, but saw the Tribe regain a 72-61 lead with 10:50 left.
Wingate trailed by 10 at 85-75 with 6:41 to go before going on a 13-2 run to take its first lead of the game on a layup by Kenny Villines (Fayetteville, NC) with 2:15 to go. The Bulldogs would stay in front the rest of the way. Jamel Hamilton (Virginia Beach, VA) made one of two free throws with 16 seconds left to pull Catawba within 92-91 and after Bill Smith (Manasquan, NJ) made a pair of free throws for Wingate with 13 seconds remaining, Hamilton misfired on a three-pointer at the buzzer.
