Graves' Career-High 32 Points lead Catawba to Win Over Wingate

SALISBURY, NC -- Senior Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) scored a career-high 32 points and dished out a dozen assists, also a career-high, to lead Catawba past visiting Wingate 108-105 in overtime in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improved to 11-9 overall and 6-3 in the SAC, while the Bulldogs fall to 14-6 and 7-3.

Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) hit a follow shot with 16 second left in overtime to break a 105-105 tie to lift the Tribe to the win.  After a missed Wingate three-point attempt, freshman Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC) made one of two free throws and Justin Baker’s (Lumberton, NC) three-pointer at the buzzer was short.

Catawba led 97-93 early in the overtime session, but a basket by Sean Barnette (Rock Hill, SC) and a three-pointer by Baker gave the Bulldogs a 102-98 lead with 2:34 remaining.  The Tribe got baskets by Norman Monroe (Newport News, VA) and Graves to tie the score before Bill Smith (Manasquan, NJ) connected on a three-pointer for a 105-102 Wingate lead with 1:17 left.

Monroe scored with 1:06 to go and Graves added a free throw with 52 seconds left to tie the score at 105-105.  After a Wingate miss, Wooldridge tipped in a miss by Graves for the winning goal.  Wooldridge finished with 22 points and eight rebounds, while Monroe posted a double-double with 13 points and a career-best 13 rebounds. 

Barnette and Bryan Grier (Charlotte, NC) each had double-doubles for Wingate.  Barnette tallied 23 points with 10 rebounds, while Grier had 19 points and a career-high 17 rebounds.  Baker scored 22 points for the Bulldogs.

Barnette had two baskets in the final minute of regulation, tying the score at 91-91 with 24 seconds left.  He failed to convert a three-point play and Catawba was unable to get a shot off to end the first 40 minutes.  Baker had put Wingate up 80-79 with 5:44 remaining, but Wooldridge had a basket and Graves two three-pointers for an 87-83 Catawba lead with 3:31 left.
