SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba used a strong second half and pulled away from host Tusculum to grab a 60-46 victory in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Pioneer Areana.  The Catawba Indians improve to 12-9 overall and 7-3 in the SAC, while the Pioneers fall to 10-12 and 3-8.  The 46 points allowed by Catawba was the fewest since the Tribe also surrendered just 46 points on Feb 6, 2002, which also came against Tusculum. 

Catawba led 25-20 at the break and would score the first 10 points of the final half to take a 35-20 edge and never looked back.  The Pioneers pulled within 41-28 on a pair of free throws by Serge Poppe (Charleroi, BELGIUM) with 10:45 to go, but another Catawba run would break the game open.

The Tribe used a 19-5 run to build its lead to 60-33 with 3:48 to go.  Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC) connected on two three-pointers in the run, which also included a pair of three-pointers by Isaac Rose (Jonesville, NC).

Norman Monroe (Newport News, VA) scored a season high 16 points to lead Catawba, while Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.  Houston also reached double figures with 14 points.  Lavanti Jeter (Alexandria, VA) led all scorers with 20 points for the Pioneers.

Tusculum shot only 24% in the loss and made just 2-of-22 (9%) from three-point range.  Catawba canned 41% and was 5-of-11 from behind the arc.  The Tribe also held a 48-30 edge on the boards.
