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.
