Women's Basketball Goes Scoreless Over Final Five Minutes In Loss To LR


SALISBURY, NC -- Lenoir-Rhyne held Catawba scoreless over the last five minutes and ran off 16 unanswered points as the Bears claimed a 79-64 victory in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  Lenoir-Rhyne improves to 6-1 overall and 1-0 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 4-4 and 0-1.

The Lady Indians jumped out to an 8-2 lead over the Bears just 4:42 into the game.  Catawba kept the lead until the 8:06 mark in the first half when Lenoir-Rhyne took the lead.  The Bears held a 39-34 advantage at the half.

After the break, Lenoir-Rhyne was able to fend off two strong runs by Catawba and held the Lady Indians without a shot for the last 5:07 of the game.  Catawba trailed by eight with just over nine minutes left before it rallied to take a 64-63 lead on a Brittany Higgins (Takoma Park, MD/Blair HS) jumper with 5:08 left.

Catawba would not score after the Higgins basket and Amber Holt (Charlotte, NC) responded to the Catawba lead with a three-pointer for a 66-64 edge.  The Bears would go 11-of-14 at the line down the stretch, including canning all eight in the final 47 seconds.  The Bears dominated the glass, holding a 53-31 edge on the boards.

Holt nearly recorded a triple-double for the second time in less than a week, finishing with 12 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.  Denise Moore (Newport News, VA) had a double-double with 10 points and a game-high 11 rebounds.  Jacquelyn Kremer (Sevierville, TN) scored 10 of her game-high 15 points in the second half and grabbed six rebounds, while Jami Safrit (Hickory, NC) also tallied 15 points and six rebounds.
Higgins and Pamela Muldrow (Jacksonville, NC/Southeast HS) each tallied 14 points for Catawba.  Higgins pulled down six boards and dished out three assists, while Muldrow had seven rebounds and two assists.  Cameron Clark (Albemarle, NC/N. Stanly HS) also reached double figures with 10 points and had five boards.
