Hampton's six three-pointers ignite Women's Basketball to win at St. Augustine's

RALEIGH, NC -- Catawba junior Hillary Hampton (Salisbury, NC) came off the bench to score 20 points, hitting on all six three-point attempts, as the Lady Indians defeated host St. Augustine’s 71-53 in women’s basketball action on Tuesday night. With the win, the Catawba Indians improve to 2-1, while the Falcons fall to 0-3.

Hampton scored 17 of her points after the break and her six three-pointers were just one shy of the school record held by three players. Her perfect night of 6-for-6 did set a new mark, breaking the old standard of 4-of-4 by Aisha Stewart in 2004. Four other Lady Indians reached double digits as Brittany Higgins (Takoma Park, MD) added 12, while Cameron Clark (Albemarle, NC), Ne’Keithia Howard (Macon, GA) and Corin Muldrow (Jacksonville, FL) each scored 10 points.

The Catawba bench was the key, outscoring the Falcons 50-27 as Higgins was the only Tribe starter in double figures. Catawba also held a 32-25 edge on the boards and committed six less turnovers.

Catawba trailed only briefly early in the contest. A three-pointer by Renata Spinks gave the Falcons a 7-6 lead, but Muldrow tied the game on a layup at 8-8 and Hampton canned her first three-pointer with 11:54 to go in the half for an 11-8 lead and Catawba never trailed again. A jumper and two free throws by Higgins pushed the margin to 15-8.

Clark and Howard combined for 16 straight Catawba points late in the half as the ladies claimed a 39-27 lead at the break. Howard hit a pair of free throws for a 22-18 lead and after St. Augustine’s trimmed the lead back to a basket, Clark followed with a three-pointer and Howard made two baskets to push the lead to 29-20. Clark added four free throws and another three-pointer for a 36-26 advantage.

The Falcons cut the lead to as little as eight on a couple of occasions in the second half, but Catawba held a double-digit edge most of the way. A jumper by Kenyada Wade with 7:13 remaining pulled St. Augustine’s to within 54-46, but a pair of free throws and a three-pointer by Hampton pushed the margin back to 13 with six minutes to play.

LaConya Polk led the Falcons with 14 points. Wade and Spinks came off the bench to score 10 each.
