Houston Leads Men's Basketball Into SAC Semifinals

Junior posts double-double with 29 points and 11 rebounds

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba junior Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) scored 29 points to lead the fourth-seeded Indians past visiting Lincoln Memorial 90-78 in quarterfinal action of the 2009 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 19-9 and advance to the semifinals on Saturday night at Catawba Valley Community College.  The Railsplitters, seeded-fifth, end their season at 14-14.

 Houston would finish with a double-double, adding 11 rebounds.  He was 11-of-20 from the floor and connected on four three-pointers.  Cliff Burns (Cooleemee, NC/Davie Co. HS) and Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) each added 15 for the Indians.

Catawba pulled away in the final 10 minutes using a 9-0 run to take a 75-64 lead with 5:34 remaining.  The Railsplitters never reduced the margin to single digits from there. 

Lincoln Memorial battled back from an early 20-9 deficit and took a 28-26 lead on a Wadner Joseph (Miami, FL) layup.  Catawba would spurt ahead by six and led 42-38 at the break.  Houston had 13 points at the break, while LMU’s Desmond Johnson (Lynch, KY) had 11.

Down seven, the Railsplitters used a 15-7 run to go on top 54-53 on a Stuart Miller (Harrogate, TN) three-pointer with 15:14 left.  Houston answered with a three-pointer and Catawba never trailed again.  The Indians led 62-55 before a run by LMU brought the Railsplitters within 66-64 at the 9:33 mark.  Catawba then used the 9-0 run to grab a comfortable margin.

Johnson led LMU with 22 points and 11 rebounds.  Miller added a dozen points with Joseph and Brandon Armstrong (Decatur, GA) each tallying 11 points.  Lincoln Memorial shot just 29% in the second half and only 39% for the game.

Catawba shot 45% in each half and held a 50-42 edge on the boards.  LMU had a +12 edge in rebounding in the regular season meetings, which the teams split.  Reid also added seven rebounds and six assists.  Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) scored a dozen points with Isaac Rose (Jonesville, NC/W. Forsyth HS) picking up 10 points and nine rebounds.  Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) added 10 rebounds and nine points.
