Men's Basketball's Win-Streak Snapped in 2OT Loss at St. Augustine's

RALEIGH, NC -- Catawba fell to host St. Augustine’s 105-97 in double-overtime in men’s basketball action at Emery Gym on Saturday afternoon.  The Falcons improve to 8-2, while the Catawba Indians have its three-game winning streak snapped and fall to 7-5.

The Falcons tied the game at the end of regulation on a basket by Justin Dickens with two seconds left.  Catawba had a chance to take a four-point lead, but Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) missed on a pair of free throws with 21 seconds to go.  The Indians had a chance to win at the end of overtime, but after a steal by Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) Dominick Reid (Concord, NC/Cannon School) missed on a shot at the buzzer.  In the second overtime, the Falcons took control and never looked back. 

St. Augustine’s held the biggest lead of the game at eight points in the opening half, but the Indians rallied and took a 44-41 lead on a three-pointer by Houston just before the break.  The teams would battle back-and-forth in the second half, but the Falcons eased out to a 64-58 lead with 9:44 to go.

Catawba would strike back on three-pointers by Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) and Reid to go up 68-67 with 6:36 remaining.  Down by a point with just over a minute left, Isaac Rose (Jonesville, NC/W. Forsyth HS) and Fields converted free throws to put the Indians up 80-77 with 48 seconds left.

Jeff Sullivan cut the Catawba lead to a point on a pair of free throws with 37 seconds to play and Reid converted the first of two from the stripe for an 81-79 edge with 35 seconds remaining.  The Falcons would turn the ball over on its next possession, but were aided by Houston’s misses from the line and tied the score.

Six players reached double figures for Catawba with Houston pacing the way with 19 points and eight rebounds.  Fields added 18 points and Rose 16.  Sullivan came off the Falcon bench to record a double-double with 25 points and 12 rebounds.  Hayward Fain also had a double-double with 19 points and 11 boards.
