SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba snapped a six-game losing streak with an 84-73 win over visiting Lincoln Memorial in South Atlantic Conference women's basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians connected on 11 three-pointers to help them improve to 12-10 overall and 6-6 in the SAC.  The Lady Railsplitters fall to 8-12 and 3-9.

Three Catawba players shared scoring honors with 17 points, including Johnna Foster (Huntersville, NC/Southlake Christian Academy), who had all of hers in the final 13:09 to help the Lady Indians erase a five-point deficit.  Milica Ivanovic (Belgrade, SERBIA/Sports High/Bethel) and Elizabeth Merritt (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) also tallied 17 points. 

Catawba led 40-33 at the break, but saw Lincoln Memorial take the lead at 45-42 after consecutive baskets by Dayshalee Salaman (Carolina, PUERTO RICO) just over four minutes into the second half.  The Lady Railsplitters held a 51-46 lead with 13:36 left when Catawba began its winning surge.

Foster started the rally with a steal and jumper at the 13:06 mark.  Ivanovic followed with a three-pointer to tie the contest and Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day) reclaimed the lead for the Lady Indians on a jumper with 12 minutes left.  Foster hit a trio of three-pointers over a two minute span to help stretch the Catawba advantage to 67-55 with 7:57 remaining.

Kisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day), who scored 14 points, pulled the Lady Indians at 10-all in the first half after an early deficit.  Catawba led for most of the half and used 10-1 run in the final four minutes of the period to go up 40-31.  The Lady Indians canned eight of their first 11 shots to get off the solid start.

Salaman led LMU with 16 points, while Patrice Tally (Easley, SC) had 15 points, nine rebounds and six blocked shots.  Melanie Hemphill (Chattanooga, TN) and Whitney Holmes (Oklahoma City, OK) also posted double figures with 14 and 10 points, respectively.  The Lady Railsplitters shot 53% for the contest, but had 21 turnovers, a dozen more than Catawba.

Hicks scored 11 points to round out the double-digit scorers for Catawba.  The Lady Indians connected on 43% from the field, the first time shooting over 40% since beginning their six-game slide.  Foster hit on 6-of-9 shots, including 5-of-7 from behind the arc in scoring a career-high.
