JEFFERSON CITY, TN -- The Catawba women's basketball made history on Saturday night, winning 20 games in back-to-back seasons for the first time after a 81-74 win over Carson-Newman in South Atlantic Conference women's basketball action on Saturday night at Holt Fieldhouse. The win gives Catawba a second place with Presbyterian in the league standings and the #3-seed in the upcoming SAC Tournament.

Catawba stormed out of the gates to lead 16-8 after seven minutes. Carson-Newman responded with a 9-2 run to pull within 18-17 and eventually took the lead at 23-22 at the ten minute mark. The Lady Indians would take a 40-37 lead to the half, shooting 54%. Carson-Newman trailed, despite shooting 64% in the opening half, making 4-of-6 three-pointers. The Lady Eagles took the lead early in the second half and held a 54-51 edge with just over 12 minutes to play. Catawba used a 7-0 run to take the lead it would not relinquish. A layin by Danyel Locklear (Pembroke, NC) with 11:34 left put the Lady Indians ahead 56-54. Carson-Newman closed to within a point on three occasions, the last at 62-61 with 7:45 to play. Catawba moved out to a 71-64 lead with 2:53 left and held at least a four point margin from there. Both teams shot extremely well, Catawba hitting on 54% and Carson-Newman nearly 58%.
