Mayo Sets Men's Basketball Record With Eight Blocked Shots in Newberry Loss

NEWBERRY, SC -- Newberry topped visiting Catawba 98-81 in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Eleazer Arena in a contest that saw the teams combine for 71 turnovers.  Tony Davis had a dubious triple-double for the Wolves with 16 points, 14 rebounds and 13 turnovers as Newberry improved to 7-9 overall and 2-6 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fell to 6-10 and 2-6.

Shamel Akins also tallied 16 points for Newberry, while Danny Huffor added 11 points and six steals.  A dozen Wolves took part in the scoring.  Newberry shot 48% in the second half and out-rebounded Catawba in the final period 35-21.

Freshman Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) led Catawba with 23 points and eight rebounds.  Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) added 22 points and four assists.  Freshman Kejuan Mayo (South Boston, VA/Halifax HS) recorded a school-record eight blocks as the Tribe equaled a team mark by swatting 13 shots.

Catawba led most of the first half despite 20 turnovers, by making 45% from the field and holding its own on the boards (18-22).  Chris Tyree (Rocky Mount, VA/Franklin Co. HS) had the Indians up 32-24 after a pair of free throws with 4:13 in the half, but the Wolves scored seven straight and trailed 39-38 at the break.

Reid gave Catawba its last lead at 48-46 following a three-point play with 15:36 remaining.  Newberry surged from there, scoring ten straight points which was capped by a three-pointer from Antoni Magdos with 13:52 to go.  Mayo pulled the Indians within 58-54, but Akins hit a three-pointer and Magdos converted a steal into a three-point play to spark a 13-0 run that put Newberry in control.

Catawba shot just 37% in the second half and had 36 turnovers in the contest.  The Indians were also out-rebounded 57-39 for the game.  Newberry had 26 steals off the 36 miscues.
