HICKORY, NC -- Playing without starting guard Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) for the third straight game, Catawba, ranked 20th in NCAA II, dropped its second straight league game in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action 76-69 to Lenoir-Rhyne on Saturday night at Shuford Gym. The loss dropped Catawba out of first place for the first time this season as the Tribe falls to 16-4 overall and 6-2 in the SAC. Lenoir-Rhyne improved to 7-13 and 5-3.

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.
