Men's Basketball Posts 77-72 Win Over Nova Southeastern

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL -- Catawba used a nine-point run late in the game to claim a 77-72 win over host Nova Southeastern in men’s basketball action at the NSU Thanksgiving Classic on Saturday night at the University Center.  The Catawba Indians improve to 4-2 with the win, while the Sharks fall to 1-3.

Catawba trailed by four after Alex Gynes capped a seven-point run by Nova to give the Sharks a 66-62 lead with 3:43 left.  Stephen Coles (Danville, VA/Washington HS) hit a pair of free throws and Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) had a steal and layup to tie the game with 3:07 remaining.  Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) canned a three-pointer for a 69-66 edge with 2:40 remaining and Fields converted another layup with 2:04 left for 71-66 lead.

NSU got two free throws and a layup by Ross Allsop to cut the margin to 71-70 with 1:09 to play.  Allsop scored again with 25 seconds left after a basket by Catawba’s Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) to make the score 73-72.  Fields hit a pair of free throws with 24 seconds to go and Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) sealed the game, making two free throws with three seconds remaining after a NSU miss.

Fields led Catawba with 19 points, making all six free throws, and adding five rebounds and four assists.  Houston followed with 16 points and hit four three-pointers.  Rutherford had 12 points and eight rebounds, while Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) posted 11 points.

Allsop came off the bench to score 17 points and grab nine rebounds for the Sharks.  Gynes added 11 points and eight boards.  NSU connected on 38% from the field, while the Indians hit 44%.

Catawba jumped out to a quick lead, taking a 15-6 edge after three-pointers by Reid and Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave).  Nova rallied back with a 14-4 run to go on top after a three-pointer by Teddy Tassy.  The Indians surged ahead late in the half, using a 13-4 run for a 39-31 lead at the break.  Houston and Huntley had three-pointers in the run.

NSU scored the first 10 points of the second half to take a 41-39 lead as Tassy and Luke Roesch hit three-pointers.  Neither team led by more than four from there until the final minutes.  Houston helped erase a four-point deficit with a three-pointer in a 14-6 run that gave Catawba a 58-54 lead with 7:06 left.  NSU got a three-pointer by Gynes and a basket by Allsop to retake the lead with 5:26 to go.
