Women's Basketball Suffers Fifth Straight Setback
JEFFERSON CITY, TN -- Host Carson-Newman used a 15-2 run early in the second and cruised to a 70-56 win over Catawba in South Atlantic Conference women's basketball action on Saturday night at Holt Fieldhouse. The Lady Eagles improve to 8-12 overall and 4-6 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 11-9 and 5-5.
Cordne Miles hit all eight of her field goal attempts to lead Carson-Newman, recording a double-double with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Katlin Moore and Shannon Depew each followed with 14 points, while Zoriah Williams grabbed 10 boards.
Johnna Foster (Huntersville, NC/Southlake Christian Academy) led Catawba with a career-high 12 points, hitting on four three-pointers. Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day) was the only other Lady Indian in double figures as she finished with 11 points and eight rebounds.
Carson-Newman had a 12-0 run in the opening half to grab a 20-8 edge and held the lead the rest of the way. Foster pulled the Lady Indians within 36-27 on her first three-pointer just before the break, but another poor shooting performance limited a Catawba rally.
The decisive run by the Lady Eagles came after a three-point play by Jolysa Conner (Charlotte, NC/Waddell HS) had cut the Catawba deficit to 42-33 with 15:23 remaining. A layup by Williams and a three-pointer by Moore got things started for C-N. The only points scored by Catawba over the six-minute span came on a putback by Elizabeth Merritt (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS).
Catawba would shoot just 28% for the contest, while the Lady Eagles canned 45% and went 7-of-17 from behind the arc. Catawba was 7-of-27 from long range.
