10_WBB_HicksDanaSTP

SALISBURY, NC -- Tusculum’s Jasmine Gunn (Nashville, TN) scored 20 points and the Pioneers handed host Catawba its first league loss with a 70-57 win in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Pioneers improve to 8-6 overall and 4-2 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians have a seven-game winning streak snapped and fall to 11-5 and 5-1.

Gunn scored 16 of her 20 points in the opening half, while Jasmine Parker (Rex, GA) tallied 14 of her 16 points in the final half as the Pioneers took control.  Brittni Oliver (Kokomo, IN) also reached double figures with 12 points and recorded three steals.

For Catawba, Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day) scored a game-high 21 points and pulled down 15 rebounds in posting her 13th double-double of the season.  Milica Ivanovic (Belgrade, SERBIA/Sports High/Bethel) added 17 points and hit on five three-pointers.

Shooting was the difference in the second half as the Pioneers hit on 44% (10-of-23), while Catawba managed to hit on just 10-of-35 shots (29%).  The Lady Indians led 30-29 at the break, but quick baskets by Parker and Gunn put Tusculum on top and the Pioneers never trailed again.

Hicks pulled Catawba even at 42-all with 12:05 remaining, but the Lady Indians would go nearly seven minutes before scoring again.  During that time the Pioneers grabbed a 48-42 edge.  After Catawba pulled within 48-46 with five minutes to play, Catherine Hintz (Hastings, MN) converted a three-point play to stop the Lady Indians run.

Oliver delivered the big blow when she sank a three-pointer with two minutes left for a 60-48 Pioneer lead.  Tusculum connected on all eight free throw attempts in the final minute to keep Catawba at bay. 

Tusculum shot 39% for the game, while Catawba canned 34%.  The Lady Indians held a 40-37 edge on the boards, but committed two more turnovers.
