SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba made five of seven free throws in the final minute and defeated 20th-ranked Carson-Newman 61-57 in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The host Catawba Indians improve 15-5 overall and 5-3 in the SAC, while the Lady Eagles fall to 16-3 and 6-2.

Catawba used a 9-0 run in the early stages of the second half to grab a 40-31 lead and held on the rest of the way.  The Lady Indians led 48-39 with 7:08 remaining, but Carson-Newman rallied to within four at 50-46 on a three-pointer by Cassie Burks (Las Vegas, NV). 

The Lady Indians got two key baskets by Brittany Higgins (Tacoma Park, MD) to keep their lead.  Casha Foster (Crossville, TN) cut the Tribe lead to 56-52 with a pair of free throws with 1:07 to go, but Tamekia Foster (Chesapeake, VA) made two from the stripe with 38 seconds left and after a turnover Ne’Keithia Howard (Macon, GA) added one of two with 22 seconds remaining for a 59-52 edge.

Neither team shot well early as Catawba made 33% in the opening half with the Lady Eagles canning only 29%.  Catawba led 7-0 before Carson-Newman first got on the board at the 14:14 mark of the opening half.  The Eagles would rally to tie the game at 10-10 on a Stefanie Holbrook (Oak Ridge, TN) three-pointer with 10:27 remaining.  Holbrook sent the teams to the break knotted at 23-23 following her three-pointer to end the first half.

Carson-Newman led 28-27 early in the second half after a three-pointer by Ashley Tipton (Knoxville, TN).  Easter answered for Catawba then put the Lady Indians up for good on her basket with 14:49 to play to ignite the 9-0 run that broke the game open.

Howard and Hillary Hampton (Salisbury, NC) paced the Catawba attack with 15 points each.  Howard added eight rebounds, while Hampton canned 3-of-5 from long range.  Foster had a team-leading 10 rebounds with eight points and Easter added nine points and six rebounds.

Tipton and Holbrook led the Lady Eagles with 12 points apiece.  Holbrook scored her dozen on four three-pointers.  Shari Buford (Hampton, GA) pulled down a game-high 11 rebounds.  Catawba improved to 45% shooting in the second half with C-N making 42%.  The Lady Indians were 13-of-18 at the line, including going 10-for-13 in the second half.
