Men's Basketball Blows Past Tornados Behind Coles and Huntley
SALISBURY, NC -- Host Catawba rolled to a 93-75 win over league co-leading Brevard in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. The Catawba Indians improve to 9-6 overall and 2-2 in the SAC, while the Tornados fall to 10-5 and 3-2.
Freshman Stephen Coles (Danville, VA/Washington HS) scored the first 10 points for Catawba to jump start the Indians, who led 14-4 after five minutes. Coles had 16 of his career-high 18 points in the opening half, making all eight of his shots. Sophomore Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) also posted a career-high with 17 points.
Josh Roper (Charlotte, NC) led all scorers with 25 points for Brevard. Jonathan Whitson (Clyde, NC) recorded a double-double with 21 points and 11 rebounds.
After the quick start, a three-point play by Huntley pushed the Catawba lead to 23-10. Three more baskets by Coles upped the margin to 34-19 with six minutes to go in the half. Brevard rallied back to within 41-36 in the final minute of the half, but Catawba held a 47-38 edge at the break.
The Tornados drew close on a technical free throw with 35 seconds remaining in the half. Catawba’s Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) and Brevard’s Shane Galloway (Rosman, NC) each drew technicals after a foul on Galloway, which sent him to the bench for the rest of the game with his fifth foul. Fields hit three of four free throws and Huntley added a basket in the final seconds for the halftime margin.
The Indians would surge again early in the second half, going up 73-52 with 9:56 to go following a Huntley layup. Brevard made things interesting with an 11-point run to pull within 73-63 at the 8:11 mark. Catawba quickly scored 12 straight points to match the run and cruised to the win.
Catawba placed four players in double figures as Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) added 15 points and Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) tallied 14. Sam Carlisle (Raleigh, NC) also reached double figures for Brevard with 10 points.
