Lenoir-Rhyne took control with an 11-0 run to grab a 24-14 advantage at the 8:33 mark of the half. The Bears held its 10-point margin with just under five minutes in the half, but Catawba ended the frame on 12-1 run to take a 36-35 lead at the break on Quentin Bryant's (Badin, NC) three pointer with just two seconds left.
