Petty's career-high propels Men's Basketball over N.C. Central

DURHAM, NC -- Catawba College rallied from a 12-point second half deficit and defeated host North Carolina Central 76-75 in men's basketball action on Saturday night. Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC) tossed in a career-high 27 points, hitting on 11-of-15 at the line, to lead the Indians. Catawba improves to 8-2 with the win, while NCCU falls to 1-9. Catawba shot just 30% in the opening half and could have trailed by more than its 35-27 deficit, but cashed in on 12-of-16 at the line. Trailing 46-34 with just under 15 minutes to play, the Tribe went on a 12-0 run, tying the game on a three-point play by Terrence Hamilton (Dillon, SC) with 11:47 remaining. Catawba led 75-69 with 37 seconds to play, but Central fought back. Corey Tabron hit two three- pointers around a free throw by Petty to cut the margin to 76-75 with 11 seconds left. Petty would miss two free throws, but the Eagles turned the ball over at half court and Catawba ran out the clock. Besides Petty's 27 points, Catawba got 13 points from Hamilton and a double-double of 13 points and 10 rebounds from Alex Luyk (Madrid, SPAIN). Brian Carter (Alexandria, VA), the nation's sixth-ranked scorer, was held to three points as he was saddled with foul trouble. Tabron scored 20 points for Central, including going 5-of-8 from three-point range. #######
