Men's Basketball Succumbs to Newberry in Double Overtime

SALISBURY, NC -- Newberry overcame a five-point deficit in the first overtime and claimed a 94-88 double-overtime win over host Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The win improves Newberry to 7-11 overall and 2-5 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 11-7 and 4-3.

Catawba trailed most of the game, but got a tip in by Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) and a layup by Donzell Williams (Salem, VA/Glenvar HS) to cap a 12-3 run that gave the Indians a 69-68 lead with 1:07 remaining.  Newberry tied the game on a free throw by Jawuan Lockhart (Washington, DC) with 55 seconds left and had a pair of shots in the final seconds to win the game.  Rutherford blocked an attempt in the lane by Ray Robinson (Jacksonville, FL) at the end of regulation.

A three-pointer by Rob Fields (Orangeburg, SC/Orangeburg-Wilkerson HS) in the first overtime gave Catawba a 77-74 lead with 2:22 left and a steal and layup by Williams pushed the lead 79-74.  Robinson got a layup with 1:03 to go and Ryan Barnes (Oviedo, FL) forced a second extra period on a three-pointer with three seconds left.

Lockhart put the visitors up to stay with 2:31 left in the second overtime.  Catawba went two minutes without scoring after Fields had the Indians up 83-82 before Lockhart’s layup.  Fields brought Catawba within 89-85 with 51 seconds to go, but Newberry got a three-point play from Robinson to ice the issue with 42 ticks remaining.

Aaron Edwards (Duluth, GA) led Newberry with a game-high 26 points, on 9-of-14 shooting with four three-pointers.  Robinson and Coleman Young (Spartanburg, SC) each added 20 points, with Robinson claiming nine rebounds.  Jeremee Davis (Albany, GA) dished out 11 assists.

Fields led Catawba with 22 points and delivered six assists.  Rutherford posted a double-double with 18 points and 13 rebounds.  Houston added 16 and Williams equaled his career-high with 14 points.  Catawba shot just 39% and made just two field goals over the first 11 minutes, but led 19-18 with 7:54 to go in the first half.  Young scored 10 straight points to give Newberry a 28-21 lead it would hold until the break.

The game featured seven ties and five lead changes in the second half before Newberry took its 65-57 lead.  Newberry shot 44% and made 10-of-18 (56%) from behind the arc.
