Huntley and Moore Notch Career-Highs to Lead Men's Basketball Over Mars Hill
SALISBURY, NC -- Freshman Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) and junior Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) each scored 24 points to notch career-highs and help Catawba to a 101-92 win over visiting Mars Hill in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. The Catawba Indians improve to 7-10 overall and 3-6 in the SAC, while the Lions fall to 5-12 and 2-7.
Moore, with 16 points at the break, and Huntley, with 13, helped Catawba to a 51-41 edge at the half. Moore canned four three-pointers as the Indians shook off a 3-for-15 start to can 17-of-36 in the opening 20 minutes.
Mars Hill held the early lead with the Indians not finding the range, leading 18-11 after a jumper by Donterious Hughes (Gastonia, NC) at the 11:28 mark. Moore hit a pair of three-pointers and Cameron Lovelace (Cherryville, NC/Cherryville HS/N. Florida) another to help Catawba rally and grab a 28-26 edge with 6:46 left in the half. The Indians pulled away in the final five minutes of the half, outscoring Mars Hill 21-10.
Catawba built its lead to 15 in the second half, but the Lions rallied back behind Hughes, who scored 19 of his 21 points after the break. A four-point play by the league’s #2 scorer and another three-pointer cut the margin to 72-64 with 11:12 remaining. Tarron Stewart (Tampa, FL) brought Mars Hill within five with 9:11 left, but that was as close as the Lions got.
Reid connected on the last of Catawba’s ten three-pointers with 6:28 to go to put the Indians up 86-76. Catawba hit on 7-of-8 at the line in the final 3:13 of the contest to keep its edge.
Reid scored a dozen of his 16 points in the second half. He finished with eight assists and seven rebounds. Lovelace also reached double figures with 13 points. Catawba would shoot 50% for the game (32-of-64) after the slow start.
Dion Malichi (Shelby, NC) matched Hughes with 21 points for Mars Hill. He completed a double-double by pulling down 10 rebounds. Stewart finished with 12 points. The Lions shot 44% for the game and 40% in the second half. Turnovers were even at 13 apiece with Catawba holding a 42-41 edge on the boards.
