SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba raced to an 11-0 edge a little over five minutes into the game and led by double-digits the final 34:45 in posting an 87-60 win over visiting Newberry in the opening round of the 2010 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The top-seeded Catawba Indians improve to 19-9 overall and advance to face fourth-seeded Lincoln Memorial in Saturday’s noon semifinal.  Newberry ends its season at 10-18.

Newberry hit just one of its first 11 shots and trailed 23-2 at the 11:55 mark of the opening half.  Newberry never got back into the game, pulling only as close as 17 at 28-11 with 8:04 in the half.  Catawba hit on 43% of its shots in the first half to only 23.3% for Newberry as the Indians built a 42-21 edge.  The Indians would lead by 20 points or more the entire second half.

Donald Rutherford (Morganton, NC/Freedom HS) led Catawba as he posted a double-double off the bench with 15 points and 13 rebounds.  Freshman Stephen Coles (Danville, VA/Washington HS) followed with a dozen points and seven rebounds.  Antonio Houston (Charlotte, NC/E. Mecklenburg HS) also reached double figures with 10 points, while Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) dished out seven assists.

Newberry got 13 points each from Danny Huffor (Marco Island, FL) and Ray Robinson (Jacksonville, FL).  Ryan Barnes (Oviedo, FL) tallied 10 points.  Stephane Bakinde (Yaounde, CAMEROON) grabbed nine rebounds, while Huffor pulled down eight boards.
