Men's Basketball Routs Augusta State for Third Straight Win

Wooldridge eclipses 1,000 career points in win

HICKORY, NC -- Catawba never trailed in earning its third straight win with a 92-70 victory over Augusta State in men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at the Moretz Sports Classic hosted by Lenoir-Rhyne at Shuford Gym. The Catawba Indians improve to 5-6 on the season, while the Jaguars fall to 8-3.

Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) scored the first basket just 16 seconds into the contest, making the senior the 46th Catawba player to reach 1,000 points for his career. Tyrekus Bowman tied the contest for Augusta State, but Wooldridge added a pair of free throws at the 18:46 mark to put the Tribe on top for good at 4-2.

Catawba used a 10-4 spurt to grab a 20-12 lead and Ahmad Murphy (Orangeburg, SC) gave the Tribe a 27-18 edge on a jumper at the 10:56 mark of the opening half. Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC) and Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) hit consecutive three-pointers to push the lead to a dozen at 34-22.

The Jaguars cut the margin to eight at 34-26 on a pair of free throws by Garret Siler, but Murphy answered with a jumper and the Tribe led by double digits over the final 26 minutes of play. Catawba hit on 56% of its shots in the opening half to grab a 54-41 edge.

Wooldridge hit a pair of free throws to give the Tribe a 63-43 lead early in the second half and a dunk by Houston put Catawba on top 78-49 with 9:41 remaining. Wooldridge led Catawba with 18 points, while Houston added 16 points. Graves had 15 points and six assists with Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC) scoring 12 and Norman Monroe (Newport News, VA) 11. The Tribe defense would help force 32 Jaguar turnovers. Ben Madgen was the only Augusta player to reach double figures with 13 points.
