08_WBB_LongKisha

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba led wire-to-wire in posting its third straight win with an 83-69 victory over visiting Mount Olive in women’s basketball action on Friday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians  improve to 6-3 and give Coach Angie Morton her 200th career win.  The Trojans fall to 2-4.

Nisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day) scored 18 points to lead Catawba, scoring 13 in the opening half as the Lady Indians raced to a 42-28 edge.  Kisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day) followed with 16 points, 13 in the second half, including a key three-pointer with 3:10 remaining for a 70-62 lead.  Maggie Sullivan (Fort Mill, SC/Charlotte Christian HS) and Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day) also reached double figures for Catawba with 12 and 10 points, respectively.

Mount Olive’s Helen Moore (Kenly, NC) led all scorers with 24 points, hitting on 11-of-18 shots, and grabbed seven rebounds.  Shequanta McGee (Roanoke Rapids, NC) followed with 15 points, while Brittany Miller (Holly Springs, NC) tossed in 14 points.

Catawba scored the first seven points, five from Nisha Long, to grab a quick lead.  A pair of free throws by Hicks at the 12:22 mark gave the Lady Indians a double-digit lead at 17-6.  Hicks gave Catawba its largest lead on a layup with 4:40 left for a 35-17 edge.  Catawba shot 52% in the opening half.

The Trojans used a 9-2 run over the first two minutes of the second half to pull within 44-37.  Moore started the burst with a three-pointer and capped the run with a layup.  Catawba answered the run and went back up by 18 at 63-45 when Renee Welfare (Greenville, SC/Mann HS) converted a three-point play with 10:08 remaining.

Moore hit three baskets and Laporsha Davis (High Point, NC) canned a three-pointer as Mount Olive reeled off nine straight points to cut the deficit to 63-54 with 6:33 to go.  McGee hit a three-pointer to slice the Catawba lead to 67-62, but Kisha Long answered with her own three-pointer and the Lady Indians hit on 9-of-12 free throws down the stretch to hold on.

Milica Ivanovic (Belgrade, SERBIA/Sports High/Bethel) scored eight points, pulled down a career-high 13 rebounds and dished out five assists.  Sullivan hit on all six of her field goal attempts.  Catawba continued its hot shooting, making 56% in the final half to finish at 53.4% for the game.  The Lady Indians also held a 38-31 edge on the boards.
