Houston Leads Men's Basketball to Win Over Barton

HICKORY, NC -- Freshman Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC) delivered a three-point play then added a pair of free throws as Catawba knocked off Barton 79-76 at the Moretz Sports Classic hosted by Lenoir-Rhyne on Friday afternoon at Shuford Gym. The Catawba Indians improve to 4-6 on the season, while the Bulldogs fall to 5-3.

Houston’s three-point play with 51 seconds to play gave Catawba a 77-76 lead after the Tribe had squandered a seven-point advantage with just over four minutes to play. Anthony Atkinson scored six of the seven points as Barton pulled even at 74-74 with 2:20 left. A pair of free throws by Bobby Buffaloe with 1:10 to go gave Barton its first lead since early in the second half.

Barton failed to score after Houston put the Tribe up and the freshman made two free throws with 13 seconds remaining to give Catawba a three-point edge. The Bulldogs misfired on a three-point try at the buzzer.

After enjoying an early 13-8 lead, Catawba found itself down by ten at 30-20 with 8:38 to go in the half following a three-pointer by Buffaloe. Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC) helped whittle the lead to 33-30, but Barton surged out by double-digits again at 43-33 with just under three minutes to go in the half. Catawba would score the final eight points of the frame to pull within 43-41 at the break.

Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) drew Catawba even early in the second half and Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) gave the Tribe a 48-46 lead with 17:20 remaining. The Indians would lead from there until Buffaloe’s free throws with just over a minute to play.

Houston led Catawba with 23 points and went 12-of-13 at the line. Graves had a double-double with 11 points and 11 assists, while Wooldridge had 19 points and nine boards. The senior made 9-of-11 from the field and is just one basket shy of reaching 1,000 points in his career. Atkinson had 25 to pace Barton, while L.J. Dunn added 15 off the bench.

Barton held a 40-30 edge on the boards, while each team committed 11 turnovers. The Tribe shot 54% for the game, including 64% in the final half. Barton made just 38%.
