Cold Shooting Night Sends Women's Basketball to Fourth-Straight Loss


SALISBURY, NC -- Mars Hill got 19 points and eight rebounds from Taylor Deal (Catawba, NC) as the Lions knocked off host Catawba 61-51 in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Lions, playing without the league’s leading scorer in Brittini Young (Ramsuer, NC), improve to 13-4 overall and 6-3 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians drop to 11-8 and 5-4, losing for the fourth straight time.

Mars Hill used a late run in the first half to take a lead it never gave back.  Tied at 20-all with 7:17 to go before the break, the Lions scored 13 straight points.  The Lions led 35-24 at the half.  Catawba shot just 20% (7-for-35) in the opening 20 minutes and did not make a field goal over the final nine minutes of the half.

Catawba managed to get as close as three at 46-43 with 7:24 remaining, but continued to struggle from the field and could never tie the contest.  The Lady Indians shot just 21.7% for the game (15-of-69), while Mars Hill connected on 41% (24-of-28).

Tyler Carlson (Savannah, GA) added 16 points, seven rebounds and six assists for Mars Hill.  Margaret Harvey (Greensboro, NC) grabbed a dozen rebounds.  Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day) posted a double-double for Catawba with 18 points and 16 rebounds.  It marked the 16th double-double of the season for the league’s leading rebounder.  Milica Ivanovic (Belgrade, SERBIA/Sports High/Beth) scored 13 points.
