Late Heroics Lift Men's Basketball Over LMU

SALISBURY, NC -- Host Catawba answered a tying three-pointer with four second remaining on a breakaway layup to claim an 88-85 win over league-leading Lincoln Memorial in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The win improves the Catawba Indians to 11-6 overall and 4-2 in the SAC, while the Railsplitters fall to 14-3 and 5-2.

Lincoln Memorial rallied back from a seven-point deficit in the final four minutes and tied the game on Cameron Carden’s (Clearwater, FL) three-pointer with four seconds remaining.  The Indians immediately inbounded the ball to Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School), who found Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) behind the LMU defense.  Rutherford made a layup with two seconds left and completed a three-point play.  LMU got off a contested desperation three-point heave from midcourt which was well off the mark.

Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) led Catawba with 29 points and moved into third place on the SAC’s all-time scoring list with 1,929 points.  Lenoir-Rhyne’s Daniel Willis scored 1,980 points, while Wingate’s Sean Barnette holds the top spot with 2,324 points.  The senior made 8-of-12 field goals, including 4-of-6 from long range, and added 9-of-10 at the line.

Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) also made four three-pointers and finished with 23 points.  Rutherford added 17 points and Reid chipped in with 10 points.  Desmond Johnson (Lynch, KY) led LMU with 22 points.  Brandon Armstrong (Decatur, GA) had 20 points with four three-pointers.  D’Mario Curry (Detroit, MI) tossed in 13 points and Carden followed with a dozen.

Catawba got out to a strong start and led 24-13 midway through the opening half.  Carden started a Railsplitter rally with three free throws and Curry added three straight buckets to pull the visitors within 28-24.  Catawba held a 38-37 lead at the break.

LMU led for much of the second half including a 67-62 edge with 8:46 left.  A basket and a three-pointer by Fields put Catawba back on top at 69-67 with 7:39 to go.  Houston had a basket and a three-pointer in a 9-0 spurt that gave the Indians its 80-73 lead with 3:54 remaining.

Reid hit a pair of free throws to stake the Indians to an 83-77 lead with 1:50 left then a basket by Johnson and a three-pointer by Armstrong after a turnover cut the margin to 83-82 with 55 seconds remaining.  Reid hit a basket in the lane as the shot clock expired to put Catawba ahead 85-82 with 17 seconds to go before the frantic final seconds.
