Late Rally Comes Up Short for Women's Basketball

HICKORY, NC -- Lenoir-Rhyne built a 17-point lead then held off a late charge by visiting Catawba to claim a 60-55 win in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Shuford Gym.  Cameron Sealey scored 17 points to pace the Bears, who improve to 7-8 overall and 4-3 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 11-6 and 5-2.

Sealey also dished out seven assists for Lenoir-Rhyne.  Precious Elkins added a dozen points, while Whitney Brinkley and Caroline Laughter pulled down eight and seven reb ounds, respectively.  The Bears survived a 6-of-14 performance at the line.

Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day) led Catawba with her 14th double-double of the season.  The junior, who leads the league in rebounding, totaled 15 points and 17 rebounds.  She struggled from the field, making only 6-of-20 shots.  Milica Ivanovic (Belgrade, SERBIA/Sports High/Bethel) added 13 points. 

The Lady Indians struggled over the last 10 minutes of the first half in falling behind 34-22 at the break.  Catawba shot just 28% and managed just one field goal over the final 10:50 of the half.  Ivanovic had brought Catawba within 20-17 before the Bears ran off nine straigth points to take control.

Lenoir-Rhyne kept a double-digit lead most of the second half and led by as many as 17 at 50-33 with 8:50 to play.  The Bears looked to have the game wrapped up when Sealey sank the last of her three triples for a 54-40 edge with 5:13 remaining.

Catawba came alive in the final five minutes scoring 10 straight to cut the margin to 54-50 with 3:24 to go.  The Bears got two key offensive rebounds on a possession just inside two minutes and Alexis Katt converted for a 58-52 edge with 56 seconds left.  Ivanovic cut the lead in half on a three-pointer and the Lady Indians got a turnover on the ensuing inbounds pass, but returned the favor seconds later.  Elkins and Laughter each hit a free throw in the last 13 seconds for the final margin.
