11_MBB_MooreKeonTWCA

ANDERDON, SC -- Anderson shot nearly 60% in the second half and pulled away to post an 81-56 win over visiting Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at the Abney Athletic Center.  The Trojans improve to 9-5 overall and 3-1 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians drop their third straight since returning from the holiday, falling to 5-7 and 1-3.

A three-pointer by Stuart Thomson (Poynton, ENGLAND/Poynton) and a jumper by Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) in the final minute of the first half brought Catawba within 37-33, but Brandon Young answered with a three-pointer at the horn and the Trojans never let the Indians closer than five the rest of the way.  When Tyrell McDowell hit a three-pointer midway into the second half, Anderson had pushed its lead to 20. 

All five starters reached double figures for the hosts.  Trey Britton and Kevis Cornwell had 14 apiece, while Young added 13.  Jenzail Jones tossed in a dozen and Taylor Shugart had 10 points and seven boards.  The Trojans shot 51% for the game and outrebounded Catawba 38-29.

The Indians, playing without point guard Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School), got a game-high 21 points from Moore.  Cameron Lovelace (Cherryville, NC/Cherryville HS/N. Florida) added nine points on a trio of three-pointers, while Thomson scored eight points.  Catawba converted on just 36.4% from the field and committed 19 turnovers.

Catawba got off to a good start and led 17-13 after a free throw by Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS).  Cornwell scored a pair of baskets to tie the game and Nick Trull gave Anderson the lead for good at 21-20 with 9:40 left in the half.
