SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba hit on 9-of-10 at the free throw line in the final two minutes and posted a 74-65 win over visiting Anderson in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 14-10 overall and 8-6 in the SAC, while the Trojans fall to 9-13 and 5-9.

Milica Ivanovic (Belgrade, SERBIA/Sports High/Bethel) and Jolysa Connor (Charlotte, NC/Waddell HS) each scored 14 points to lead a balanced attack for the Lady Indians, who placed all five starters in double figures.  Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day) posted a double-double with 12 points and 13 rebounds, while Kisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day) and Elizabeth Merritt (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) added 12 and 11 points, respectively.

Catawba led early, but the Trojans fought back to lead 38-36 at the break.  Anderson took its largest lead at 50-44 after a basket by Neal.  The Lady Indians reeled off six straight to even the contest at 50-all.  Ivanovic converted a three-point play with 9:21 to go the put Catawba on top for good at 58-55.

The Lady Indians stretched the lead to 65-58 with 3:47 remaining on free throws by Ivanovic, Hicks and Merritt and a layup by Connor.  Diaz pulled Anderson within 68-63 on free throws with 45 second to go, but the Lady Indians made all six from the stripe to keep the Trojans at a distance. 

Both teams hit exactly 24-of-56 shots.  Anderson hit one more three-pointer (8) than Catawba, but the Lady Indians had 19 points at the line to just nine for the visitors.  Catawba committed only seven turnovers, including just two in the second half which did not come until the final three minutes.
