09_WBasket_Barton_14

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba scored the first eight points and rolled to a 101-74 victory over host Livingstone in women’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Trent Gym.  All five starters reached double figures for the Catawba Indians, who improve to 2-1.  The Blue Bears fall to 2-3.

Sophomore Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day) led Catawba with 19 points and 12 rebounds, posting her second straight double-double.  Nisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day) had 16 points and six assists, while Milica Ivanovic (Belgrade, SERBIA/Sports High/Bethel)  registered 15 points, five rebounds and five assists.  Rounding out the double figure scores was Kisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day) with a dozen and freshman Elizabeth Merritt (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) with 11 points and eight rebounds.

Kayler McBride led Livingstone with 18 points.  Montiya Harrison added 13 points.  The Blue Bears shot just 35% for the contest, while the Lady Indians hit on 55% of their opportunities.  Catawba also held a 44-37 edge on the boards. 

Ivanovic hit a three-pointer 30 seconds into the game for Catawba and the Lady Indians never trailed.  The Blue Bears cut the 8-0 deficit to 10-6, but another eight point surge gave Catawba a18-6 lead five minutes into the contest.  A three-pointer by Nisha Long with 12:41 left gave the Lady Indians a 22-10 edge and Livingstone never closed within single digits.

A pair of Long free throws gave Catawba its largest lead of the half at 31-10 with 9:44 remaining.  The Blue Bears got as close as 14 before the Lady Indians claimed a 53-24 advantage at the break.  A three-pointer by Long with 13:51 left pushed the Catawba edge to 67-44, but McBride had a three-point play and a three-pointer in an 8-0 run that cut the Lady Indian lead to 67-52.

Catawba answered the run with five straight points by Merritt on two free throws and a three-point play.  Ivanovic sank a three-pointer at the 9:32 mark for a 79-58 lead and the Lady Indians pushed its lead to 30 in the closing minute on a three-pointer by Johnna Foster (Huntersville, NC/Southlake Christian Academy).

Hicks did not miss a shot from the floor, converting all nine of her field goal attempts.  The Lady Indians connected on 10 three-pointers for the second time this season after not accomplishing that feat since the 2002-03 season.  Catawba also reached the century mark for the first time since scoring 103 on Feb. 14, 2004 against Mars Hill.
