Martin's 19 Points Sparks Men's Basketball to Win at Tusculum

GREENEVILLE, TN -- Sophomore Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) came off the bench to score 19 points to lead Catawba to a 68-57 win over host Tusculum in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Pioneer Arena.  The Catawba Indians improve to 10-14 overall and 6-10 in the SAC.  Tusculum falls to 11-15 and 8-8.

Freshman Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) and senior Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) added 17 and ten points, respectively, for the Tribe.  Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) led the Indians in rebounding with five and contributed seven points. 

Three Pioneer players tallied double digit point totals in the loss.  Brett Williams (Oviedo, FL) scored 18 points to lead the team and added five rebounds.  Tommy Klempin (Reynoldsburg, OH) had 16 and Rob Troutman (Mt. Washington, KY) scored 11 to round out the top three.

The Pioneers started the game with a quick layup by Klempin.  Catawba responded right back to take the lead on a three point shot by Reid.  The Indians would never give up the lead after that first basket and would stretch the lead to 28-20 at the break.  Reid and Moore combined to score 15 of Catawba’s first half points.  Troutman led the way for the Pioneers with nine points of his own.

In the second half, both teams went back and forth until midway through the half when the Pioneers began to rally from 11 points down.  Troutman started the surge for Tusculum with a basket followed a couple of free throws by Matt Darnell (Stafford, VA) and Kevin Vest (Dayton, OH) to cut the lead to six at 50-44 with 6:59 left.

Reid would respond for the Indians by scoring his only two points in the second half from the free throw line.  Martin added two of his 14 second half points with a lay up to push the lead back to double digits.  After two Pioneer free throws, Moore converted a three-point play with four minutes left on the clock to give Catawba a 57-46 edge.

Tusculum brought the lead down to five with 2:16 on the clock behind a three-point shot by Williams.  Although the Indians failed to make a field goal in the final four minutes, Catawba went 11-of-12 at the line to hold on for the win.
