Houston's Late Three-Point Play Helps Lift Men's Basketball Past LMU

SALISBURY, NC -- Junior Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E.

In a game that saw a dozen lead changes, LMU led 65-57 with 6:20 to play when Catawba rallied.  A nine-point run brought Catawba within 65-64 with 4:24 to play and a three-pointer by Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) tied the score at 67-all with 3:12 left.

Lincoln Memorial kept the lead for two possession on baskets by Stuart Miller (Harrogate, TN) and Desmond Johnson (Lynch, KY) before Houston’s three-point play that gave Catawba the lead for good at 72-71.  After a turnover, Donzell Williams (Salem, VA/Glenvar HS) made one of two free throws with 27 seconds remaining for a 73-71 edge then LMU misfired on a three-pointer.  Houston added a free throw with 14 seconds left and the Railsplitters missed a long two-point attempt in the final seconds.

LMU held a 31-24 lead with six minutes left in the first half, but Catawba erased the deficit with seven straight points.  Houston gave Catawba a 42-41 lead at the break on a three-pointer at the buzzer.

Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) led Catawba with 18 points, 11 coming in the opening half.  Houston followed with 17.  Cliff Burns (Cooleemee, NC/Davie Co. HS) had 11 points and eight rebounds.
