Ivanovic and Hicks Lead Women's Basketball to Win on Senior Day

SALISBURY, NC -- Senior Milica Ivanovic (Belgrade, SERBIA/Sports High/Bethel) and junior Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day) combined for 49 points to lead Catawba to a 79-60 win over visiting Newberry in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 15-13 overall and 9-9 in the SAC.  The Wolves fall to 16-10 and 11-7.

Ivanovic made the most of her final home game, scoring 13 points in the opening 12 minutes to help the Lady Indians to a 22-16 lead.  She finished the half with 15 points, while Hicks added 16 as Catawba led 41-27 at the break.  Catawba never trailed after Ivanovic opened with a layup then canned her first three-pointer for a 7-0 edge.  The Lady Indians closed the half with a 13-4 run over the final five minutes.

Newberry never got within single digits in the second half.  Hicks’ jumper at the 8:56 mark put Catawba up 65-45 and the Lady Indians stretch the margin to as much as 22 in the closing minutes.

Hicks added a career-high 19 rebounds to go along with her 25 points to help Catawba a big 44-28 edge on the glass.  She hit on 8-of-12 shots and made 9-of-11 at the line.  Ivanovic scored 24 points, hitting on 7-of-12 shots, including 4-of-6 from behind the arc, while dishing out five assists and grabbing six rebounds. 

Three other Catawba seniors also had a hand in the win.  Kisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day) tallied 16 points and had four assists, while Jennifer Dameron (Siler City, NC/Jordan-Matthews HS) scored a career-high five points and grabbed four rebounds.  Anna Dellapenta (Thomasville, NC/E. Davidson HS/Elon), playing with a hurt back, had a rebound and two assists.

Helen McKinney (Owensboro, KY) led Newberry with 17 points, while Leeara Creet (Brisbane, AUSTRALIA) added 14.  Catawba shot 52% in the opening half to build its lead and finished at 46%.  Newberry hit on 36% in each half.
