Men's Basketball Comes Up Short Against Wingate

09_MBB_HuntleyJustin

SALISBURY, NC -- Two free throws by Wingate’s Jamie Vaughn (McDonough, GA) with 2:19 left proved to be the winning points in the Bulldogs’ 63-61 win over host Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  Wingate improves to 7-4 overall and 2-1 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 5-6 and 1-2.

Vaughn’s free throws capped a 9-2 Wingate run to regain the lead it held most of the night and proved to be the final points of the contest.  Catawba had two chances in the final 30 seconds, but failed to convert.  Following a Bulldog turnover with 16 seconds left, the Indians gave the ball back with 3.8 seconds remaining on their own miscue.  Ethan Kincaid (Morganton, NC) would miss the front end of a one-and-one, but Catawba failed to get off a shot from just inside half court.

Vaughn and Odell Turner (Charlotte, NC) led Wingate with 19 points each.  Turner added six rebounds and a blocked a pair of shots.  Vaughn got Wingate off to a hot start with 14 of his points in the opening half.  Chase Smith (Upper Marlboro, MD) tossed in 10 points.

Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) led Catawba with 17 points, hitting on 9-of-11 at the foul line.  Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) scored 11 points off the bench with Stuart Thomson (Poynton, ENGLAND/Poynton) adding 10 points and eight rebounds.  The Indians played the final 25 minutes without leading scorer and rebounder, Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School), who left with a concussion.

Wingate scored the first seven points and pushed the lead to as many as nine midway through the opening half.  Catawba closed to within 38-35 at the break.  The Bulldogs shot 54% in the first half.  Huntley tied the game early in the second half and Kejuan Mayo (South Boston, VA/Halifax HS) gave the Indians their first lead at 47-46 with 12:05 to go.

A three-point play by Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) and free throws by Huntley had Catawba up 59-54 with 6:17 left.  Turner and Quan Alexander (Charlotte, NC) pulled Wingate within one and Vaughn knotted the game at 61-all with 3:58 remaining.
