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.
