08_MBB_Charles04

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba picked up its first win of the season with an 84-67 victory over Chowan in the Walt Baker Classic on Friday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 1-2, while the Hawks fall to 2-3. 

Catawba connected on 51% (33-of-65) of its shots and benefited from 30 Hawk turnovers in taking the win.  The Indians used a 15-2 run in the first half to go on top 27-14 with 7:44 in the opening stanza.  Freshman Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) started the run with a three-pointer, while Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) had eight points in the surge, including a pair of three-pointers.  Chowan closed the gap to five points late in the half before Catawba took a 39-32 lead at the break.

Leading by a dozen with 12:35 remaining, the Indians scored 10 straight points to take command.  Houston and Isaac Rose (Jonesville, NC/W. Forsyth HS) hit consecutive triples to get things started, while Reid later added a three-pointer and a layup for a 73-50 edge with 8:18 left.  The lead would grow to 27 on two occasions before the Hawks pulled back with 17 at the end.

Houston led a trio of double-figure scorers for Catawba with 17 points and also dished out six assists.  Norman Monroe (Newport News, VA/Heritage HS) posted 10 points as did Cliff Burns (Cooleemee, NC/Davie Co.) off the bench.

Chowan was led by Lando Morrison (Yorktown, VA), who had 17 points and eight rebounds.  Aaron Scott (Lawrenceville, VA) tallied 16 points off the bench, while Layth Mansour (Alexandria, VA) added a dozen points.  Chowan did shot 52% (28-of-54) from the field and held a 37-23 edge on the boards, but had 20 of its 30 turnovers in the opening half.
