Men's Basketball Loses Season-Opener in Overtime

SALISBURY, NC -- The University of Charleston, WV, picked up a 102-99 overtime win over host Catawba in men’s basketball action on Friday night at Goodman Gym in the Salisbury Roundball Classic.  It was the opener for all teams.

Catawba rallied from an eight-point deficit in the final seven minutes of regulation to force the extra period, but Marquis Brooks (Dayton, OH) hit a three-pointer with 1:20 remaining to put the Golden Eagles ahead for good.  Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) pulled Catawba within 100-99 with 10 seconds left, but missed a tying three in the closing seconds.  The game had 19 lead changes and 11 ties. 

The Indians had built a 41-33 lead late in the first half, but the Golden Eagles closed the stanza on a 14-2 run to grab a 47-43 edge at the break.  Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) scored five straight points to open the second half as the Tribe would regain the lead.
 
Charleston got a three-pointer from Warren Wallace (Indianapolis, IN) with 14:43 remaining to take a 56-54 lead and would build the margin to 76-68 with 7:11 to go.  Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) converted a three-point play and followed with a layup to spark an 8-0 run that tied the game at 76-76 on a three-pointer by Houston.

Marquis Brooks (Dayton, OH) and Fields traded three-pointers before a pair of free throws and a three-pointer by Houston gave Catawba an 84-80 advantage.  Brooks hit a pair of free throws and a jumper as Charleston went up 86-85, but Norman Monroe (Newport News, VA/Heritage HS) gave Catawba an 87-86 lead on a layup with one minute left.  Wallace’s three-point put the Golden Eagles ahead before Fields tied the game with 36 seconds left.  Both teams had turnovers in the final seconds.

Brooks scored the first 10 points for Charleston in the overtime as the Golden Eagles went up 99-94.  Wallace made one of two free throws after a layup by Dominick Reid (Concord, NC/Cannon School) for a 100-96 lead.  Fields would hit his three pointers and Wallace added two free throws with eight seconds left.  Fields had a chance to tie, but his long three-pointer was short.

Brooks led Charleston with 25 points, including making 5-of-8 from behind the arc.  Robert Strickland (Chesapeake, VA) followed with 17 points, while Wallace and Austin Weatherington (Brook Park, OH) each added 14 points.  Houston led Catawba with 26 points and Fields added 15.  Monroe had 13 points and eight rebounds.
