Men's Basketball Grabs Fifth Win In Last Six Outings

Houston now stands one point shy of 1,000

BREVARD, NC -- Catawba claimed a 77-64 win over host Brevard in its regular-season finale in men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Boshamer Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 16-11 and won for the fifth time in six outings.  The Tribe will host Tusculum in the opening round of the South Atlantic Conference tournament on Wednesday.  The Tornados finish up their season at 4-24.

The Catawba Indians jumped at on top early, outscoring the Tornados 13-4 in the first seven minutes of play.  The Tribe pushed their lead to double digits at the 7:59 mark of the first half then outscored the Tornados 17-8 in the final eight minutes of play to take a 38-17 lead into the halftime break.
 
The Tornados had a rough first half, as BC shot only 25 percent from the floor and scored only 17 points in the opening 20 minutes of play.  Catawba would hold a 28-15 edge on the boards at the half.

In the second half, the Tornados turned things around as a lay-up by sophomore Jonathan Whitson at the 19:32 mark, triggered a 12-0 BC run over the next four minutes of play to cut the Catawba lead to nine at 38-29.  Brevard would get as close as nine points on three separate occasions in the second half, but could not get any closer as the Indians had an answer to ever Tornado offensive run.

A jumper by junior Joseph Chilton at the 2:26 mark cut the Catawba lead to eight at 69-61, the closest that the Tornados had been since early in the first half.  However, Catawba made some clutch shots down the stretch, including hitting five-of-six free throws in the closing minutes of play to seal the win.

Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) led Catawba with a game-high 19 points, hitting on six-eight shots, including three-of-five from behind the arc.  Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) had 14 points, leaving the sophomore one-point shy of become just the third Catawba player to reach 1,000 points before his junior season.  Isaac Rose (Jonesville, NC/W. Forsyth HS) had 12 points.

The Tornados were led by Whitson's 17 points and 12 rebounds, his eighth double-double of the season.  Fellow forward Chilton had 15 points, while sophomore Shane Galloway added 13 points off the BC bench.
