Fields' Career-High 19 Points Helps Lead Men's Basketball to Third Straight Win

MURFREESBORO, NC -- Sophomore Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) scored a career-high 19 points to help lead Catawba past host Chowan 86-77 in men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at the Helms Center.  The Catawba Indians take their third straight win and improve to 7-4, while the Hawks fall to 4-8.

Catawba trailed only once at 2-0 following an opening basket by Lando Morrison.  Norman Monroe (Newport News, VA/Heritage HS) tied the game and Finnur Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND/Wesleyan Academy) put Catawba on top for good with two free throws at the 18:45 mark.

Donzell Williams (Salem,VA/Glenvar HS) gave the Tribe their largest first-half lead at 23-12 with 11:28 remaining, but Chowan would hang around and used a 9-0 to cut the margin to 23-21 on consecutive jumpers by Layth Mansour.  Catawba would build its lead back to eight and took a 37-33 edge to the break.

Fields opened the second half with a four-point play and Chowan trailed by at least four points until pulling within a bucket with 8:54 remaining.  Isaac Rose (Jonesville, NC/W. Forsyth HS) and Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) hit back-to-back three-pointer to give the Indians a 71-63 lead with 6:39 to play.

Jaleel Nelson would bring the Hawks within 71-66 on a three-pointer, but baskets by Fields, Rose and Cliff Burns (Cooleemee, NC/Davie Co. HS) built the Indians edge back to 11 points with 4:11 remaining.  Rose would ice the game with 1:29 left on a three-point play for an 82-73 lead.

Houston led Catawba with 20 points, hitting on six three-pointers.  Rose followed Fields with 15 points and added four steals, while Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) chipped in with 11 points and seven assists.  Chowan placed five players in double-figures led by Morrison and Mansour, who each had 14 points.  Mansour added eight boards.

Chowan hit on 49% of its shots and held a 42-27 edge on the boards, but Catawba made just eight turnovers to 18 for the Hawks.  The Indians also shot well, hitting on 47%, and made good on 11-of-25 (44%) from long range.
