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.
Catawba was led by Baxter and Corin Muldrow (Jacksonville, NC), who each had 13 points. Catawba shot just 30.6% for the game and were out-rebounded 54-35. The Lady Indians stayed in the game by forcing 31 turnovers, while committing just 11.
