Men's Basketball Can't Find Shooting Touch in 84-67 Loss at UNC Asheville

ASHEVILLE, NC -- The University of North Carolina at Asheville defeated visiting Catawba, ranked 10th in NCAA Division II, by an 84-67 count on Saturday afternoon at the Justice Center.  The Bulldogs improve to 4-5, while the Catawba Indians fall to 8-1.

Catawba struggled with its shooting throughout, connecting on just 32.5% (15-of-77), including a 5-of-25 performance from behind the arc.  UNC Asheville jumped out to a 10-2 lead before a three-pointer by Isaac Rose (Jonesville, NC/W. Forsyth) cut the margin in half.  The score remained low-scoring after 10 minutes with the Bulldogs on top 22-13.

The Bulldogs held a 31-19 edge with just under three minutes left in the opening half, but Catawba was able to whittle the margin to seven at the break.  A three-pointer by Donzell Williams (Salem, VA/Glenvar HS) and a jumper by Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) cut the lead to 31-24.

Catawba scored the opening basket of the second half, but the Bulldogs followed with eight straight points to go on top 41-28.  A three-pointer by Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC, Cannon School) and a layup up Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) reduced the margin to 47-39 with just over 14 minutes left.  It was the first basket by either player after each missed on their first seven shots.

UNCA went back up by a dozen with 12 minutes to go after a free throw by Eric Stubbs and a second-chance three-pointer by Reid Augst.  The Bulldogs pulled away in the final six minutes, going up 70-54 after a controversial non-goaltending call and a breakaway layup by J.P. Primm.

Asheville placed four players in double figures led by 20 from Augst.  Jason Ridenhour’s followed with 17, while Stubbs had 12 points and eight rebounds.  Primm tallied 11 points.

Williams equaled a career-high with 14 points to pace Catawba.  Fields added a dozen (eight in the first half) with Reid adding 11 points, six rebounds and four assists.  Reid and Houston finished a combined 4-of-28 and were 1-of-11 from three-point range.
