The win puts the Indians atop the league standings with a perfect 4-0 mark and improved Catawba to 13-2 overall. Wingate falls to 14-3 overall and 3-1 in the SAC.Catawba missed an opportunity to win the game at the end of regulation, but Terrence Hamiltonís (Dillon, SC) three-pointer with a second left was off the mark. Wingateís Djuan Hankins (Roanoke, VA) forced the extra time with an old-fashioned three-point play with 32 seconds left. The Bulldogs scored first in overtime, but Luyk quickly answered with a hook shot and later put Catawba up 94-89 on a three-pointer with 2:51 left. The 6-9, sophomore center also blocked two of his career-high six blocks in the first two minutes of the overtime period. Hankins got the Bulldogs within a bucket after a three-pointer at the 2:36 mark, but a jumper by Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC) and a free throw by Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) brought the lead back to five at 97-92 with 34 seconds remaining. Hankins would again trim the lead to three with five seconds left, but Phipps added two free throws with four seconds to play to ice the issue. Wingate took an 11-point lead in the opening half at 35-24 at the 5:43 mark, but Catawba reeled off 17 points to grab a 41-35 edge just before the half. Catawba would build its lead to 50-42 early in the second half, but Wingate would rally, scoring 11 of the next 13 points to lead 53-52. Catawba would regain the edge and led 78-71 with five minutes to play before Wingate rallied to o tie the game near the end of regulation. Catawba junior Brian Carter (Alexandria, VA) led Catawba with his fifth double-double and ninth 20+ point performance of the year. He scored 24 points and added 12 rebounds for the Tribe, who placed all five starters in double digits. Phipps added 18, Hamilton 17 and Luyk 16. Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC) added 13 points and 14 assists for his second straight double-double in those categories. The 14 assists were just one shy of the school record of 15 set by Art Rose in 1982. Hamilton became the 40th Tribe player to go over 1,000 career points with a bucket early in the first half. Wingate was led by Hankins, who tallied 27 points, canning 5-of-10 from three-point range.
