Men's Basketball Falls Short in Late Rally

SALISBURY, NC -- Brevard built a 20-point lead midway through the second half then held off a rally by host Catawba to post an 80-75 win in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Tornados got 27 points from Josh Roper (Charlotte, NC) in improving to 6-3 overall and 4-1 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians drop their fourth straight and fall to 5-8 and 1-4.

A dunk by D.J. Jordan (Gulfport, MS) had the Tornados up 58-38 with 11:01 remaining, but Brevard turned the ball over on three of its next four possessions to allow the Indians within 60-46.  Down 15, at 64-49, Catawba used a 13-1 run to cut the margin to 65-62 with 4:24 left.

After the basket by Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) that got Catawba within three, Drew Schauss (Greens Fork, IN) stopped the run with a key three-pointer for Brevard, which built its lead back to 10 with a minute to play.  Catawba pulled within three one final time after a Moore three-pointer with five seconds left, but Gaither Hendrix (Lenoir, NC) got his own rebound after missing two free throws and added two with a second to play for the final margin.

Roper hit on 8-of-17 shots, went 4-of-6 behind the arc and added 7-of-8 free throws in scoring his 27 points.  He missed much of the second half after picking up his fourth foul with just under 15 minutes to play.  Schauss and Hendrix each tallied 11 points, while Darius Moose (Salisbury, NC) grabbed a dozen rebounds.

Moore posted a double-double for Catawba with 22 points and 10 rebounds.  The freshman did all of his damage in the second half after missing his first 10 shots.  Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) finished with 17 points, going 11-of-12 at the line.  Stuart Thomson (Poynton, ENGLAND/Poynton) added 11 points with Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) also collecting a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds.

Catawba suffered through an ice-cold shooting night playing without starting point guard Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School).  The Indians made just 32% and were shooting as low as 22% during the second half before the late surge.  Catawba finished 4-of-24 from behind the arc after missing on its first 14 attempts.  The Indians were aided by 18 Brevard turnovers while committing just eight.
