GREENEVILLE, TN -- Tusculum overcame an 11-point deficit in the opening half and claimed an 85-70 win over visiting Catawba in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Pioneer Arena.  With the win, the Pioneers improve to 12-2 overall and 3-0 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 6-8 and 0-3.

Stephany Neptune led the Pioneers with 21 points and a career-high 19 rebounds.  Shantae Shank followed with 16 points, while Jasmine Parked added 13 and Ashli Oliver tossed in a dozen points.  NeKeithia Howard (Macon, GA/Northeast HS) had 17 points for the Lady Indians with Sicilia LoSauro (Oviedo, FL/Oviedo HS) adding 15 points.

Catawba used a strong shooting performance in the opening half to take a 34-31 lead at the break.  The Lady Indians shot 50% and trailed only briefly in the opening minutes.  A basket by Keisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day) put Catawba up 6-4 and the visitors would hold the lead until the opening minute of the second half. 

The largest lead for Catawba would be at 11 points which it held at 34-23 with 3:15 left in the half.  Tusculum would reel off the final eight points before the break and capped a 12-0 run to take the lead on a bucket by Neptune just over a minute into the final half.

After Hillary Hampton (Salisbury, NC/W. Rowan HS) hit a pair of free throws with 16:08 remaining to put Catawba on top 44-40 Tusculum would run off 10 straight points and led the rest of the way.  Neptune made two of the baskets, while Shank added three hoops in the run.

Catawba dropped off to just 35% shooting in the second half, finishing at 41.8%.  Tusculum hit on 34-of-72 for 47.2%, including 54.3% in the final half.  The Pioneers held a 45-37 edge on the boards and had just 11 turnovers (two in the second half) to 16 for Catawba.
