07_wbasket0048

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.

Catawba dressed only nine players and were missing two starters, but led nearly the entire game before falling behind 54-50 with 4:25 to go.  Cameron Clark (Albemarle, NC/N. 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.  The Lady Eagles grabbed the lead on a layup by Angela Volentine with 27 seconds left to set up the final sequence.  Crane took an inbound pass from Brooke Whitley (New London, NC/N. 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.  LoSauro hit a three-pointer to put Catawba back on top and sparked the Lady Indians to a 49-42 edge with 11:21 left.  A 12-1 run gave the Lady Eagles their 54-50 lead.

Clark, who made four three-pointers, and Brittany Higgins (Tacoma Park, MD/Blair HS) led Catawba with 12 points.  LoSauro added 11 points and hit on three from long range.  Shari Buford led C-N with 13 points and eight rebounds.  Mason and Lindsey Eggleston each scored 10 points.  The Lady Eagles were hurt at the line where they made just 9-of-22, while Catawba converted 10 of its 13 chances at the stripe.
