10_MBB_ReidDominickWING

HICKORY, NC -- Catawba picked up its first win since the holiday break, pulling out an 83-81 overtime victory over host Lenoir-Rhyne in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Shuford Gym.  Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) poured in 25 points to lift the Catawba Indians to 6-9 overall and 2-5 in the SAC, snapping a five-game losing streak.  The Bears fall to 2-13 and 1-6.

Reid put Catawba on top in overtime with a pair of free throws with 28 seconds to go.  After a Bear turnover, Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) hit the second of two free throws with nine seconds to play for an 83-81 edge.  The Indians then survived a desperation three-pointer from the corner by Kevin Davis that went long at the buzzer.

Reid scored 19 of his 25 after the break, including nine of the team’s 10 points in the extra frame.  He also added a team-high eight rebounds.  Freshman Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) added 21 points.  Huntley and Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) scored 12 and 14 points, respectively, and pulled down six rebounds apiece.

Allan Jones posted a double-double for the Bears, scoring 18 points and grabbing a dozen rebounds.  Jeff Thomas followed with 17 points and Jon Hathcock 15.  R.J. McClure rounded out the double-digit scorers with 10 points.

Lenoir-Rhyne had forced overtime on a three-pointer by Hathcock with 1.5 seconds left in regulation.  Catawba had led 73-68 with 2:40 remaining following a jumper by Moore, but the Indians failed to score the remainder of the period. 

The teams were deadlocked at 36-all at the break then Lenoir-Rhyne went up 55-50 with 12 minutes left.  Catawba battled back with a trio of three-pointers on consecutive trips.  Martin hit the first then Reid hit two straight to put the Indians ahead 62-58 with 9:55 remaining. 

Thomas gave Lenoir-Rhyne a 67-66 lead on a layup with 4:07 remaining, but failed to convert on a three-point opportunity.  Martin put Catawba right back on top and Moore stretched the lead to 71-67 on a three-pointer.

Lenoir-Rhyne shot well, hitting on nearly 54% from the field to just 40% for the Indians.  Catawba committed nine less turnovers and were good on 26-of-35 at the line.  The Bears made 17-of-23 at the stripe.
