Houston Paces Men's Basketball to Win at Lincoln Memorial

HARROGATE, TN – Freshman Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC) scored 19 points, hitting five three-pointers, as Catawba held off host Lincoln Memorial to take a 70-65 win in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday night at Turner Arena.  The Catawba Indians improve to 9-8 overall and 4-2 in the SAC, while the Railsplitters fall to 9-7 and 4-3.

Catawba scored the final six points of the first half to grab a 34-27 edge at the break and Houston pushed the lead 37-27 in the opening minute of the second half.  A three-point play by Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC) with 13:32 remaining gave Catawba a 47-36 lead.  LMU would battle back into the contest from that point.

An 11-2 run was capped by a second-chance basket by Artavius Mitchell to bring LMU within 49-47 with 10:24 to go.  A three-pointer by Houston and a layin by Norman Monroe (Newport News, VA) pushed the Tribe lead back to 55-49.  The Railsplitters would respond and took the lead for the first time since the midpoint of the opening half at 58-57on a putback by David Lopez with 5:12 remaining.

The Railsplitters led 60-58 with just over four minutes left, but Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) tied the score and Houston followed with a three-pointer with 3:48 left to put Catawba on top for good.  Chris Williams scored for LMU with 3:33 left, but missed a chance at a three-point play. 

Wooldridge extended the Tribe lead to 66-62 on a three-point play with 2:29 left and added two free throws with 23 second remaining for a 69-63 advantage.  The senior finished with a dozen points, while Monroe added 11 and Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) tossed in 10 points with six assists.

Mitchell had 14 points and nine rebounds for LMU, while Joplin Johnson had 14 points and eight boards.  Lopez also reached double figures with 10 points and pulled down seven rebounds.  LMU shot just 34% to 49% for Catawba, but had a 49-32 edge on the boards.
