JEFFERSON CITY, TN -- Junior Sara Crane (Keystone Heights, FL/Keystone Heights HS) scored with 6.2 seconds left and Carson-Newman failed to get off a shot in the final seconds as Catawba upset the host Lady Eagles 59-58 in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Holt Fieldhouse. The Catawba Indians improve to 9-10 overall and 2-5 in the SAC, while Carson-Newman falls to 10-9 and 4-3.

Stanly HS) hit a three-pointer with 3:19 left and leading scorer NeKeithia Howard (Macon, GA/Northeast HS) got her first points of the game with 1:42 remaining to put the Lady Indians back on top 55-54.
Emily Mason scored for Carson-Newman, but Howard responded with two free throws at the 1:14 mark for a 57-56 edge.

Stanly HS) and hit a layup for the win.
After going down 5-0 to start the game, Catawba rallied to take its first lead at 11-10 on a three-pointer by Clark. Sicilia LoSauro (Oviedo, FL/Oviedo HS) would cap an 18-3 run on a three-pointer at the 6:29 mark that gave the Lady Indians a 24-13 lead. C-N trimmed the lead to 41-37 at the break and retook the lead on a bucket by Ashley Kyle with 17:25 remaining.

Shari Buford led C-N with 13 points and eight rebounds. Mason and Lindsey Eggleston each scored 10 points.
