Muldrow's Double-Double Powers Women's Basketball Past Mars Hill
Sophomore equals career-high of 20 points in victory
SALISBURY, NC -- Sophomore Corin Muldrow (Jacksonville, NC) came off the bench to record her second double-double on the year to lead Catawba College to a 77-69 win over visiting Mars Hill in South Atlantic Conference women's basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. The Catawba Indians improve to 14-3 overall and 4-1 in the SAC, while the Lions fall to 8-7 overall and 2-3. Catawba remains tied with Carson-Newman and Wingate at the top of the SAC standings.
Muldrow tied her career high of 20 points and pulled down 10 boards to pace the Lady Indians. Cristi Bartlett (Camden, NC) followed with 13 points for Catawba. Abby DeBusk (New Tazewell, TN) and Danielle Francis (Bamberg, SC) led Mars Hill, scoring 18 and 15 points in the contest, respectively. Francis was 7-for-10 from the floor, while DeBusk added seven rebounds and three assists.
Catawba made just one of its first 10 shots and saw Mars Hill jump out to a 10-3 advantage with 14:41 left in the first half after a Francis jumper. Catawba then went on a 12-4 run to lead by a single point at 15-14 with 7:31 left in the first period. The Lions would outscore Catawba 12-9 to close out the first stanza and take a 26-24 lead at the break.
After shooting just 30% (9-of-30) in the opening half, Catawba made 70.8% (17-of-24) from the floor in the second half to score 53 points. MHC started the second stanza on a 6-3 run to extend their lead to five points at 32-27 with 17:07 left in the contest. Catawba answered by reeling off six unanswered points to take a 33-32 lead after Bartlett hit a layup with 15:18 left in regulation. The Indians would not trail the Lions again.
Catawba went on an 11-3 run over the next two minutes to up its lead to nine at 44-35 on a Muldrow basket. Mars Hill cut the deficit to just two points at 52-50, capping a 15-8 run on a pair of free throws by DeBusk with 7:54 left.
Three-pointers by Ingrid Easter (Cana, VA) and Cameron Clark (Albemarle, NC) helped Catawba back to a 62-54 lead with 4:52 remaining and the Lady Indians made 8-of-13 at the line in the final two minutes to hold off the Lions.
