09_MBB_MartinLee1

SALISBURY, NC – Winston-Salem State used a late 18-2 run and went on to post a 72-62 win over host Catawba on Friday night at Goodman Gym in the Salisbury Roundball Classic.  Lamar Monger (Ahoskie, NC) scored a game-high 18 points, while Paul Davis (Clio, SC) added a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds to help the Rams win their opener.  The Catawba Indians fell to 1-2.

Catawba led 57-52 after a follow shot by Kelvin Drakeford (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School/Barton) with 4:50 remaining, but the Indians made just two free throws over the next four minutes as WSSU rallied.  Andrew Jackson (Wilmington, NC) knotted the score at 57-all on a three-pointer with 3:59 to go and Monger put the Rams up for good on a pair of free throws with 3:32 left.

Monger, Marcus Wells (Durham, NC) and Shelton Carter (Greensboro, NC) added baskets before Marcus Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) converted on a free throw with 1:36 remaining to stop the 13-point run by Winston-Salem State.  The lead grew to 70-59 inside the final minute which was the largest of the contest.

The Rams opened strong and led 16-6 midway through the first half.  Catawba stayed close with long-range shooting, hitting on six three-pointer before Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) made a layup to bring the Indians within 22-20 at the 7:52 mark.  Moore gave Catawba its first lead at 27-26 on a layup with 5:24 left before the break.

Catawba took the lead again early in the second half and went up 46-39 with 11:48 to play after Stuart Thomson (Poynton, ENGLAND/Poynton) hit two free throws and later a layup.  The Indians held the lead until the late run by WSSU.

Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) led Catawba with 14 points, while Moore added 10.  Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry/Hargrave) scored nine points while adding two blocks and three steals.  Catawba shot just 27% in the opening half and finished at 31.6%. 

Jackson tossed in 16 points and handed out seven assists for WSSU with Carter adding 10 points and six rebounds.  Davis blocked five shots.  The Rams held a 48-30 edge on the boards and canned 47.5% of their shot attempts.
