Men's Basketball Can't Find Shooting Touch in Loss at JC Smith

Charlotte, NC – Johnson C. Smith rallied in the final three minutes to take a 65-59 win over visiting Catawba in men’s basketball action on Thursday night at Brayboy Gym.  The Golden Bulls improve to 6-3, while the Catawba Indians fall to 5-5.

Catawba trailed by seven with just under 10 minutes to play then rallied back.  Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) hit a three-pointer and a layup to pull the Indians within 51-49 with 8:09 left.  Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) pulled Catawba even then hit a pair of free throws with 4:39 remaining for a 61-59 lead.

Another free throw by Rutherford at the 3:24 mark gave Catawba a 59-55 edge, but that would be the last points for the Indians on the night.  A JUMPER BY James Dillard (Apex, NC) and two free throws by Jerry Hollis (Charlotte, NC) tied the score with 2:03 left.  Hollis hit two more free throws with 1:47 to go to give JCSU the lead.

Ronald Thornhill (Alberta, VA) iced the game with a three-point play with 37 seconds to go.  Hollis added one more free throw with 26 seconds remaining for the final margin.

Hollis led the Golden Bulls as he posted a double-double with 26 points and 13 rebounds.  Dillard followed with 13 points and seven boards.  Fields led Catawba with 16 points, while Rutherford added a double-double with 11 points and 10 rebounds.  The Indians shot just 34%.
