Men's Basketball Hangs Tough For 30 Minutes With NC State

RALEIGH, NC – North Carolina State pulled away over the final 10 minutes to claim an 85-61 victory over visiting Catawba in a men’s basketball exhibition game on Tuesday night at Reynolds Coliseum.  Farnold Degand scored 15 points to lead the Wolfpack, while Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) led all scorers with 21 points for the Catawba Indians.

The Wolfpack scored the game’s first eight points and grabbed a double-digit edge 4:19 into the game on a pair of free throws by Brandon Costner.  Catawba never got within single digits the rest of the way.

Degand scored consecutive baskets to give NCSU at 25-8 edge at the 10:24 mark, but Catawba dug in and closed within 28-16 on layup by Fields.  A Ben McCauley jumper put the Wolfpack ahead 34-18, but the Indians went on a 8-3 run, capped by a dunk by Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) to cut the margin to 37-26.

State led 43-28 at the break, shooting 53% to just 37% for Catawba.  The Wolfpack also held a 24-17 edge on the boards.  Degand had 11 at the half with Fields tossing in a dozen.

NCSU would go up 17 in the opening minute of the second half, but a 7-0 run by Catawba closed the Indians within 47-37.  A jumper by Fields kept Catawba close at 55-44 with 12:58 remaining.  Leading 60-47 with 10 minutes left, the Wolfpack went on a 13-1 run over a four-minute span to grab control of the contest.

The Wolfpack placed five players in double figures with Costner and Tracy Smith following Degand with 14 points apiece.  Costner added six rebounds and five assists.  Dominick Reid (Concord, NC/Cannon School) added 14 points for Catawba, connecting on four three-pointers.  Rutherford pulled down 10 rebounds.

Catawba improved to nearly 40% shooting in the second half, but hit only 38% for the game and made just 6-of-26 from three-point range.  NCSU shot 52% for the game and also struggled from long range, going 4-of-19 from behind the arc.  State held a 47-34 edge on the boards.
