SALISBURY, NC -- NeKeithia Howard (Macon, GA/Northeast HS) led all scorers with 15 points to go along with 10 rebounds as Catawba claimed a 67-51 win over visiting North Carolina Central in women’s basketball on Saturday afternoon in the Comfort Suites Classic at Goodman Gym.  The Catwaba Indians improve to 2-1, while the Lady Eagles fall to 0-8.

With the score tied at 38 with 12 minutes remaining, Catawba reeled off eight straight points over the next two minutes for a 46-38 advantage and never looked back.  The Lady Indians, who led by a least four the rest of the way, added another 8-0 run for a 59-44 lead culminated by Howard’s three-point play with 3:32 left in the contest.

Catawba’s defense held North Carolina Central without a three-point field goal on 18 attempts and to just 33 percent shooting (22-for-66) for the contest.  Nisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day) and Sicilia LoSauro (Oviedo, FL/Oviedo HS) added 13 points apiece for Catawba.  Jori Nwachukwu (Upper Marlboro, MD) tallied a double-double (13 points and 13 rebounds) to lead the Lady Eagles.
