07_wbasket0024

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba opened the second half with a 18-4 run and went on to take a 78-64 win over visiting Pfeiffer in women’s basketball action on Tuesday night at Goodman Gym.  With the victory, the Catawba Indians improve to 3-1, claiming their third straight win.  The Falcons fall to 2-4.

The teams played to a 35-35 tie at the break, but Catawba scored the first eight points to start the second half and never looked back.  NeKeithia Howard (Macon, GA/Northeast HS) started the run with a layup and two free throws in the opening two minutes.  Pfeiffer pulled within 43-39 on a basket by Devona Knight (Woodbridge, VA), but Catawba answered with a 10-0 run, including a pair of three-pointers by Kisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day), to take command.

Catawba held a double-digit lead the final 16 minutes and pushed the advantage to 21 at 73-52 on a pair of free throws by Dione Eccles (Clemmons, NC/W. Forsyth HS) with 3:40 to play.  Catawba shot 47% in the second half, while the Falcons managed to hit only 31.4% of its attempts. 

Howard led Catawba with 17 points and eight rebounds.  She connected on 7-of-9 from the field.  Cristi Bartlett (Camden, NC/Camden HS) added 14 points and seven boards for the Lady Indians, while Long chipped in with a dozen points.  Lauren Brittingham (Washington, DC) led all scorers with 21 for the Falcons.  Domonique China (Durham, NC) tallied 13 points. 

Pfeiffer held an early eight point lead at 17-9, but Catawba went on an 8-1 run to close the gap to 18-17 on a three-pointer by Cameron Clark (Albemarle, NC/N. Stanly HS).  The teams traded the lead eight times in the opening half with the Falcons scoring the final five points to tie the game 35-35 at the break.

Catawba connected on nearly half its shots (31-of-64) on the night and held a 51-40 edge on the boards.  Pfeiffer made just 33% (25-of-75) from the field and were just 4-of-20 (20%) from beyond the arc.
