08_MBB_ReidDominick

GAFFNEY, SC -- Limestone earned a measure of revenge after an early season triple overtime loss with a 76-66 win over visiting Catawba in men’s basketball action on Thursday night at the Timken Center.  The Saints improve to 7-2, while the Catawba Indians fall to 5-5.

Limestone led nearly the entire way and used an early run to lead by a dozen at 28-16 with just under nine minutes left in the opening half.  Down 16 with just under six minutes left in the half, Catawba rallied to within five by the break.  Cameron Lovelace (Cherryville, NC/Cherryville HS/N. Florida) hit a pair of three-pointers in the run.

The Saints held a 39-34 lead at the half and both teams struggled to score early in the second half.  Limestone went up 45-34 only to see the Indians run off 11 of the next 13 points to draw within 47-45 at the midpoint of the second half.

Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) kept Catawba close as he sank three free throws to trim the margin 62-58 with 4:38 remaining, but Stewart Clark canned back-to-back three-pointers and the Saints pulled back ahead by 15 in the closing seconds.  Limestone shot 64% in the second half.

Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) scored 24 points to pace the Indians.  Lovelace was the only other Catawba player in double figures with a dozen.  Catawba hit on just 30% in the second half and 34% for the game.  Catawba was also cold behind the arc, making just 4-of-20 compared to 7-of-14 for the Saints.

Jarrell Douglass posted a double-double for Limestone with 20 points and 13 rebounds.  Danny Friend added 19 points and Michael Barrett 10.  The Saints held a 43-30 edge on the boards to help offset 20 turnovers.
