Women's Basketball Fall to Wingate 77-58
SALISBURY, NC -- Wingate University senior Emily Paffrath (Bakersville, NC) scored a season-high 20 points to lead the visiting Bulldogs to a 77-58 win over Catawba in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gymnasium. Wingate never trailed in the contest and improved to 16-5 overall and 8-2 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians fall to 15-6 and 5-4.
Bulldog senior guard Tanetra Barrett (Marshville, NC) narrowly missed a triple-double with 19 points, nine rebounds and nine assists. Senior Kerri Metzker (Charlotte, NC) contributed 13 points for Wingate.
Four players hit eight points each for Catawba. Senior Andrell Baxter (Evergreen, AL) had eight points and eight rebounds in 13 minutes playing time. The host Catawba Indians hit only 29.6 percent of their field goals (21-of-71) on the afternoon.
Wingate led 36-21 at intermission, thanks to the strong inside play of Paffrath and Metzker. The two Bulldog post players had 11 points each in the first half. Barrett hit a lay-up on Wingate’s first possession (19:42) and the Bulldogs never looked back. Catawba made only eight-of-31 field goals (25.8 percent) in the opening frame.
Paffrath hit six-of-six field goals in the second half and her jumper with 16:35 remaining pushed Wingate’s advantage to 43-23. Catawba would get no closer than 15 points down the stretch. The Bulldogs made 60 percent of their field goals in the second half (15-of-25). Wingate pushed its advantage to 64-38 on an old-fashioned three-point play by Paffrath with 7:13 to play. The 26-point bulge was Wingate’s largest of the afternoon.
Wingate won the battle of the boards 45-42, thanks to nine rebounds from Barrett and seven rebounds from Paffrath. Barrett’s nine assists tied her career-high, allowing the Bulldogs to rack up 20 helpers.
Catawba’s Tamekia Foster (Chesapeake, VA), Ingrid Easter (Cana, VA) and Ne’Keithia Howard (Macon GA) joined Baxter with eight points each. Foster added seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocked shots to her ledger.
