SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba got 23 points from both Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) and Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) in a 75-69 win over visiting Anderson in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 9-13 overall and 5-9 in the SAC, while the Trojans fall to 14-10 and 8-6.

Moore got Catawba off to a hot start as he hit on a trio of three-pointers and scored 11 points in the opening five and half minutes as the Indians opened a 16-6 edge.  Balls continued to connect from behind the arc for Catawba in the opening half as the Indians hit on 10-of-13 from long range in the first 20 minutes.

Cameron Lovelace (Cherryville, NC/Cherryville HS/N. Florida) drained his second triple and ninth for the team at the 6:26 mark of the half to give the Indians a 35-19 advantage.  Anderson whittled the lead to 43-36 by the break. 

Catawba opened a 55-38 lead early in the second half, but the Trojans would rally to within two in the final ten minutes.  Oskars Ernstedins (Riga, LATVIA) sparked the run with a three-pointer and pulled Anderson within 57-49 on another from behind the arc with 10:13 to play.  Brandon Young (Belmont, NC) capped the 19-4 surge on a three-pointer with 7:09 left, cutting the margin to 59-57.

After the teams traded baskets, Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) hit a three-pointer for Catawba and Reid followed with a jumper to put the Indians up 66-59 with 3:27 left.  Young’s three-pointer pulled the Trojans within 68-64 with 2:10 to go, but Reid hit consecutive baskets and the Indians did enough at the line to hold on. 

Reid would post a double-double as he grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds.  Moore connected on five three-pointers and just missed a double-double with nine boards.  Huntley also reached double figures for Catawba with 13 points and dished out five assists.  Catawba hit on 13-of-23 (56%) from behind the arc, held a 42-33 edge on the boards and committed just six turnovers.

Anderson was led by Young, who scored 16 points.  Ernstedins tallied 14 points, hitting on four three-pointers.  Trey Britton (Alpharetta, GA) also scored 14 points for the Trojans.
