Women's Basketball Wins League Opener in Low-Scoring Affair

Ladies hold Bears to 41 Points


SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba shook off a cold shooting night and defeated visiting Lenoir-Rhyne 51-41 in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 10-2 overall and 1-0 in the SAC, while the Bears fall to 6-5 and 0-1.

Catawba managed to connect on just 29% (17-of-58) of its field goal attempts, but helped hold the Bears to a mere 27% (15-of-56) in taking the win.  The Lady Indians used a late 7-3 run in the first half to grab a 24-19 edge at the break.  Five of the points came on free throws.  Ne'Keithia Howard (Macon, GA) scored five of her 18 points in the run.

The Lady Indians built a 34-23 edge early in the second half, but Lenoir-Rhyne scored eight straight points and close within 36-34 on a three-pointer by Ashlei Helton (Icard, NC) with 9:03 remaining.  Catawba never relinquished the lead, getting a basket by Howard then a bucket and three free throws by Corin Muldrow (Jackosnville, NC) to lead 43-36 with 3:49 left.

Hillary Hampton (Salisbury, NC) helped ice the game with six free throws in the final 50 seconds.  Howard was the only Lady Indians to reach double figures, while Muldrow pulled down 10 rebounds.  Denise Moore (Newport News, VA) had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds for Lenoir-Rhyne.
