Men's Basketball Can't Hold Early Lead Against #6 LMU

SALISBURY, NC -- Lincoln Memorial, ranked sixth in NCAA II, overcame a 16-point first-half deficit to stay undefeated with an 83-75 win over host Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Railsplitters improve to 20-0 overall and 12-0 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 8-12 and 4-8.

Desmond Johnson (Lynch, KY), who posted a double-double with 27 points and a dozen rebounds, gave LMU an early 16-11 edge seven minutes into the contest.  The Indians responded from there with a 10-0 run, capped by a three-pointer from Chris Tyree (Rocky Mount, VA/Franklin Co. HS), for a 21-16 lead.  Catawba later used a 14-0 run to go up 37-21 at the 4:59 mark of the half.

Vincent Bailey (Jennings, FL) helped get LMU within single digits by the break, scoring all seven of his points over the final five minutes.  Catawba led 41-33 at the half behind 11 points from Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS). 

Johnson gave the Railsplitters its first lead since the opening minutes on a steal and dunk with 15:48 remaining.  The teams traded the lead for several minutes before Johnson gave LMU the lead for good with 7:54 left.  Huntley pulled the Indians within 69-68 with 4:12 to go, but Tony Martin (Cincinnati, OH) converted a three-point play 15 seconds later to spark an 8-0 run as LMU grabbed a 77-68 advantage.

Martin and Brandon Armstrong (Decatur, GA) each added a dozen points for LMU.  The Railsplitters shot 58% for the game and 63% in the second half.  Catawba was led by Huntley, who scored 19 points.  Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) tallied 14 points, while Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) grabbed 11 rebounds.
