Men's Basketball Loses on Last-Second Three-Pointer by Tusculum

Houston and Reid each score 20 points in loss

GREENEVILLE, TN -- Tusculum’s Jordan Lear snapped a 79-all tie on a three-pointer with one second remaining to lift the Pioneers to an 82-79 victory over visiting Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Pioneers Arena.  The win improves Tusculum to 8-7 overall and 2-1 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 8-6 and 1-2.

The basket by Lear gave the Pioneers their first lead since the 14:36 when Lear made the second of two free throws for a 52-51 lead.  Catawba’s Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) converted consecutive baskets for a 55-52 edge and the Indians would build a 62-56 edge after a Houston three-pointer with 10:19 remaining.

Tusculum tied the game at 69-all with 5:33 to go on a pair of free throws, but a three-pointer by Isaac Rose (Jonesville, NC/W. Forsyth HS) connected on a three-pointer and Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) a layup to help Catawba to a 75-69 lead with 4:23 left.

The Pioneers would tie the game at 77-all with 1:32 using an 8-2 run that included three-pointer by Kyle Moore and Ryan Troutman.  Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) would give the Indians their last lead on two free throws with 1:18 remaining.  Lavonit Jeter tied the game again on a dunk with 1:05 to go and Reid missed a three-pointer with 37 seconds left to set up the final Tusculum shot.

Tusculum placed four players in double figures and shot a sparkling 15-of-33 (45.5%) from behind the arc.  Moore led the Pioneers with 23 points, hitting on 7-of-11 from long range.  Lear had 21 points (four three-pointers) and seven rebounds.  Jeter added 18 points and nine boards, while Troutman scored 14 points and dished out seven assists.

Houston and Reid each scored 20 points in a losing effort for the Tribe.  The 20 by the freshman Reid marked his career-high.  Catawba was 9-of-21 (42.9%) from three-point range and made 18-of-20 at the line while committing just 10 turnovers.
