Men's Basketball cruises to opening night win over Allen

SALISBURY, NC – Freshman Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC) led a balanced Catawba College attack with 13 points in a season-opening 104-69 men’s basketball victory over visiting Allen (0-2) in a game of the Salisbury Roundball Classic on Friday night at Goodman Gym. Georgia College & State University (1-0) claimed a 61-51 win over Livingstone (0-2) in the opener.

Catawba’s Norman Monroe (Newport News, VA) scored the game’s first seven points and Jason Diggs (Christiansburg, VA) hit a pair of three-pointers as the Tribe bolted to a 17-2 lead in the opening five minutes. A dunk and three-pointer by Houston pushed the lead to 22-4. Allen never reduced the margin to single digits the rest of the way.

Catawba would lead by as many as 20 points in the opening half at 42-22 and an 18-point halftime advantage grew to 30 points in the opening six minutes of the final half. The Tribe grabbed its largest lead of 83-42 following a three-point play by Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC) with 8:45 left.

Three other Catawba players reached double figures as Monroe and Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) each tallied 11 with Diggs adding 10. Wooldridge pulled down nine rebounds. Catawba shot 55% to just 33% for Allen, while holding a 48-38 edge on the boards.

John Doctor (Beaufort, SC) led all scorers with 24 points for the Yellow Jackets. He hit on 16-of-19 at the line. Michael Gamble (Douglas, GA) followed with 21 points and 11 rebounds.
