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.

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.
