Men's Basketball Falls to #6 Clayton State in Final Seconds

SALISBURY, NC -- Lenoir-Rhyne (4-2) took a 64-53 win over Armstrong Atlantic (5-1), while sixth-ranked Clayton State (4-0) got a three-pointer by John Beugnot (Lyon, FRANCE) with three seconds left to claim a 76-75 win over host Catawba (1-4) in men’s basketball action at the Walt Baker Classic at Goodman Gym on Saturday afternoon.

>Beugnot's three-pointer, his fourth of the game, ended the upset bid from Catawba which had grabbed a 75-73 lead on freshman Antonio Houston’s (Charlotte, NC) four-point play with 1:55 remaining. That play capped a 15-4 run by the Tribe to take the lead. Houston had a chance to increase the advantage, but missed on a pair of free throws with 16 seconds left.

The see-saw battle saw 11 lead changes. Catawba jumped to a quick 13-5 lead, keyed by three-pointers from Houston, Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) and Jason Diggs (Christiansburg, VA). Clayton rallied and took a 37-33 lead at the break.

Catawba rallied from an early eight-point second-half deficit and went on top 51-48 with 13:33 left after consecutive baskets by Diggs. Brian Kelley (Leesburg, FL) put the Lakers back on top at the 12:12 mark and Jerome Boyd (Orlando, FL) followed with two baskets to push the lead to 56-51. The advantage would grow to 69-60 with 5:39 left before the Catawba rally to take back the lead.

Houston scored 23 points to lead all scorers, while Catawba’s Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) added a double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds. Diggs followed with 12 and Graves had 10 points. Beugnot led the Lakers with 20 points with Boyd adding 14 and Kelley 13.

Lenoir-Rhyne scored the final seven points of the first half, grabbing a 28-23 lead at the break, and led the rest of the way to claim its win. The Pirates clawed back from a 33-23 deficit to come within a bucket at 40-38 with 11:42 to go. The Bears then got four straight baskets by Josh Kindred (Holly Springs, NC) to start a 14-3 run to put the game away. L-R enjoyed a 39-22 edge on the boards.

Kindred led the way for Lenoir-Rhyne, recording a double-double with 20 points and 14 rebounds. Marcus Springs (Charlotte, NC) added 19 and Reggie Bratton (Charlotte, NC) 12 in the win. AASU was led by Jamaal Galloway (Inverness, FL), who had 15 points off the bench. Tory Harris (Lakeland, FL) also reached double figures with 10 points.
