#14 Men's Basketball Gets By Brevard 76-73

Reid ices game with two late free throws

BREVARD, NC – Dominic Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) hit two free throws with one second left as Catawba held off host Brevard for a 76-73 win in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Boshamer Gym.  The 14th-ranked Catawba Indians improve to 12-3 overall and 4-0 in the SAC, while the Tornados fall to 8-6 and 1-4.

Reid help ice the game after Catawba had pulled out to a five-point lead with 2:35 remaining.  The Indians would turn the ball over on its next three possessions, but Jonathan Whitson missed a potential go-ahead basket with four seconds left and Reid secured the rebound and sank both free throws.

Brevard led 69-68 at the 3:50 mark after a bucket by Terrence Johnson.  Baskets by Donzell Williams (Salem, VA/Glenvar HS) and Cliff Burns (Cooleemee, NC/David Co. HS) gave the Indians a 72-69 lead and Williams canned two free throws for the 74-69 edge with just over two minutes left.

Sam Carlisle cut the Catawba lead to 74-71 with 1:14 left after four Tornado offensive rebounds and Whitson converted a layup after a steal by Nathan Whitmire with 41 seconds to go to trim the margin to 74-73.  Another steal by Whitmire with 18 seconds left set up Brevard for the potential go-ahead basket, but Catawba survived.

There were 13 lead changes in the second half with the five-point lead by Catawba the largest of the half.  Brevard led by as many as nine points in the opening half, but the Indians used a 7-2 run to end the half and Brevard led 36-32 at the break.

Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) led Catawba with 16 points, while Rob Field (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) added 15.  Burns tallied 14 points with Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) posting a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Whitson led all scorers with 25 points in a losing effort for Brevard.  He hit on 10-of-16 shots and added three blocks and a pair of steals.  Carlisle had 10 points and eight rebounds.

After shooting just 33% in the opening frame, Catawba canned 60% in the second half.  Brevard hit on just 34% after the break.  The Indians have won nine of the last 10 games against SAC teams that have been decided by four points or less.  The lone loss was an overtime loss to Wingate in the NCAA II regionals.
