Men's Basketball's Shooting Struggles Continue In Loss To Tusculum

GREENEVILLE, TN -- Kyle Moore led four players in double figures with 27 points to lead host Tusculum past No. 25 Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Pioneer Arena.  The Pioneers, now 16-6 overall and 8-3 in the SAC, maintain its lead in the conference standings, while winning its eighth consecutive game.  The Catawba Indians drop their fourth straight, falling to 13-7 and 5-4.

Moore shot 6-for-10 from three-point territory in the game, while pouring in 16 points in the second half.  Josh Bennett added 14 points and nine rebounds, while Rob and Ryan Troutman finished with 12 and 10 points, respectively. Ryan dished out seven assists, while Rob tallied six helpers in the victory.

Catawba’s Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) contributed 15 points off the bench, while Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) finished with 10 markers.  Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) tallied seven points, four assists and a game-high 12 rebounds.

Tusculum shot 47.3 percent from the floor in the game, including 17-for-26 (65.4%) in the second half.  Catawba finished 19-for-60 from the field for 31.7 percent, including 7-of-30 (23.3%) in the opening period.  The Indians have shot under 40% in each of the last four losses.

Tusculum used an 11-1 run in 8:00 to take a 26-14 lead at the 3:39 mark of the first half.  Moore capped off the run with his third three-pointer of the period as TC would eventually take a 26-18 advantage into the locker room.

In the second half, Catawba would trim the deficit to 30-25 with 17:28 remaining following a three-point play by Houston.  TC responded with seven straight points including a pair of buckets from Bennett and a Moore trey as the Pioneers led 37-25.

With Tusculum leading 49-38 at the 10 minutes mark, Catawba went on an 8-0 spurt, including six straight from Fields as the Pioneer advantage was trimmed to 49-46 with 8:10 left on the clock.

Tusculum would score 10 unanswered points in span of 2:45, capped off by a critical three-point play from Wes Taylor as the Pioneers raced out to a 64-49 lead with 3:30 remaining as TC would not surrender its double-digit lead for the remainder of the contest.
