Women's Basketball Upset By Presbyterian
SALISBURY, NC -- A depleted Presbyterian squad placed all five starters in double figures and defeated host Catawba 67-60 in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Saturday night at Goodman Gym. The Lady Blue Hose, who dressed only six players, snapped a 16-game losing streak and won its first league game of the season. Presbyterian improves to 6-21 overall and 1-15 in the SAC and will travel to Lincoln Memorial for a first-round tournament game on Monday. Catawba falls to 20-8 and 10-6 and will host a quarterfinal tournament game on Wednesday.
The Blue Hose used five three-pointers to take an early 15-8 lead. PC would lead by as many as 11 in the opening half as Catawba shot just 28% and trailed 29-24 at the break. Jessica Parris (Inman, SC) scored all 12 of her points in the opening half to lead the Lady Blue Hose.
Catawba trailed 46-39 with 11 minutes left, but got a free throw and consecutive three-pointers by Andrell Baxter (Evergreen, AL) to tie the game at 46-46 with 9:31 remaining. The teams swapped the lead 10 times from there until Bridget Takach (Chapin, SC) hit a pair of free throws with 25 seconds to go to give Presbyterian a 63-60 lead.
Kerianne Blease (Saluda, SC) led Presbyterian with 16 points, while Sharie Hopkins (Chesapeake, VA) and Takach each posted double-doubles. Hopkins had 10 points and 15 rebounds, while Takach had 12 points and 10 boards. Taylor Price (Fort Bragg, NC) added 11 points for PC.
