Men's Basketball Wins Back-to-Back Behind Moore's 28 Points

JEFFERSON CITY, TN -- Freshman Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) set his career-high for the second time this week, scoring 28 points, to pace Catawba to an 85-75 win over host Carson-Newman in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday night at Holt Fieldhouse.  The Catawba Indians improve to 8-10 overall and 4-6 in the SAC, winning consecutive games for just the second time this season.  The Eagles fall to 8-10 and 5-5.

Moore collected 21 points in the opening half as the Indians built as much as a 20-point edge.  Carson-Newman erased all of the Catawba advantage, but never took the lead back.  Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) had a double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds, while dishing out four assists and recording four steals.  Kejuan Mayo (South Boston, VA/Halifax, HS) also had 14 points and grabbed nine boards. 
Antonio Sullivan scored 16 points to lead Carson-Newman.  He was followed by Ishmael Sanders, who had 14.  Each canned four three-pointers to equal Moore from behind the arc.  Kevin Hare rounded out the double-figure scorers for the Eagles with 11 points and added eight rebounds.  Bradley Tumer dished out eight assists.

Catawba scored 11 straight points to open a 22-9 advantage in the opening six and half minutes.  Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry/Hargrave) connected on a three-pointer to push the margin to 34-14 at the 9:36 mark.  Carson-Newman whittled the deficit to a dozen late in the half, but the Indians took a 52-37 lead to the break.

The Eagles mounted a charge in the second half and quickly cut the lead to six at 58-52 following a three-pointer by Sullivan with 16:15 left.  A three-pointer by Reid pushed the Catawba lead back to 11, but an eight-point burst, capped by a triple by Sanders pulled C-N within 63-60.   

Collin Crane would finish erasing the deficit when he converted a three-point play to tie the contest at 65-all with 8:25 remaining.  Martin answered with a three-pointer to give the Indians the lead back for good.  Brandon Evans cut the margin to 70-69 with 5:40 to go, but Moore drilled a three-pointer and Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) added a free throw and a layup to give the Indians a 76-69 edge.

Huntley reached double figures for the Indians with 13 points, while Kelvin Drakeford (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School/Barton) tallied 10 off the bench.  After hitting on 47% in the first half, the Indians made just 32% in the second half.  Catawba used a big edge on the boards at 46-38 and doubled up the Eagles 22-11 on the offensive end.  The Indians also had just six turnovers to 16 for C-N.
