Men's Basketball Loses Free-Scoring Contest in Overtime at C-N

JEFFERSON CITY, TN -- Carson-Newman pulled out a 129-123 overtime win over visiting Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Holt Fieldhouse.  It marked the most points allowed by a Catawba team, surpassing the old mark of 126 by J.C. Smith in 1975.  The combined points also broke the record of 250 points with Alderson-Broaddus (a 131-119 win in 1982).   The Eagles improve to 13-4 overall and 5-2 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians drop to 11-8 and 3-4.

Catawba went down by double-digits in the opening five minutes and trailed 35-20 with 9:22 left in the opening half.  The Tribe cut a 46-30 deficit to 53-46 by the half.  Norman Monroe (Newport News, VA/Heritage HS) with 13 points and Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) with 11 points each had double figures by the break.  Jordan Dixon had 14 in the opening frame for the Eagles.

The Indians closed within a point at 67-66 on a three-point play by Isaac Rose (Jonesville, NC/W. Forsyth HS) with 14:47 remaining, but C-N used a 12-2 run to move on top 79-68 at the 11:32 mark.  The Indians cut the lead to 91-89 with 7:06 left and finally tied the game at 104-all remaining on consecutive three-pointers by Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) with 1:29 remaining.

Down 111-108 with 13 seconds left, Reid made one of two free throws then came up with a steal with nine seconds to go and tied the game on a layup with five seconds remaining.  The Eagles missed a pair of shots to win the game in regulation.  Carson-Newman scored the first five points in the extra period and never trailed.  The Indians got two three-pointers by Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E> Mecklenburg HS) to cut a sesven-point deficit to 126-123 with 12 seconds left, but Darren Williams hit a free throw with seven seconds left and Scott Williams added two with three seconds to go for the final margin.

Dixon led C-N with 29 points and hit on all 11 of his free throws.  Bobby Guyton had a double-double with 17 points and 16 rebounds.  Darren Williams had 18 points and Scott Williams 16 in the win.  Houston led all scorers with 33 points, scoring 29 after the opening half.  Monroe had a double with 23 points and 11 boards, while Reid also scored 23 points for his career-high. 

Each team had six players reach double figures and Catawba scored 65 points in the second half.  Catawba shot 56% in the second half, but made only 3-of-10 in overtime.  The Eagles held a 58-46 edge on the boards and converted 34-of-39 at the line, including 23-of-25 in the second half and overtime.
