Men's Basketball Holds On Against St. Augustine's

CHARLOTTE, NC – Catawba held off a late charge by St. Augustine’s and claimed an 86-83 win in men’s basketball action at Time Warner Cable Arena on Monday afternoon.  Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) scored 20 points to pace the Catawba Indians, who improve to 4-0.  The Falcons fall to 1-3.

After an early 4-0 lead by St. Augustine’s, Houston put Catawba up for good at 9-8 with a layup with 15:52 left in the opening half.  It sparked a 23-8 run that pushed the Indian lead to 30-16 with just over seven minutes to go before the break.  Catawba led by as many as 16 in the first half and took a 41-32 edge after 20 minutes following Dominick Reid’s (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) three-pointer in the final seconds.

The Falcons used a 12-4 run to close within 59-54 midway through the final half, but Catawba responded and took a 76-59 lead with 3:47 remaining.  St. Augustine’s would connect on three-pointers on its next four possessions, including two straight by Ethan McNary, to trim the deficit to 78-71 with 1:17 to go.

Isaac Rose (Jonesville, W. Forsyth HS) hit two free throws for Catawba for an 80-71 edge, but the Indians missed on four of its next eight at the line.  The Falcons added two more three-pointers, pulling within 84-81 on one by Steven Brignol with 10 seconds left. 

Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) hit the second of two free throws with nine seconds to play for an 85-81 edge.  Hayward Fain pulled St. Augustine’s to within two before Fields added a free throw with 3.5 left for the 86-83 lead and a Falcon desperation three was off the mark.

Fields followed Houston with 17 points for Catawba, scoring 14 in the second half.  Reid had 15 points and Cliff Burns (Cooleemee, NC/Davie Co. HS) added 14.  Fain and Brignol each had 14 points to lead St. Augustine’s.  The Falcons shot 62% in the second half and made 7-of-9 behind the arc after canning just 1-of-8 in the opening frame.
