Men's Basketball Outlasts Newberry in Overtime

SALISBURY, NC -- Host Catawba outlasted Newberry to post an 88-85 overtime win in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym. The Catawba Indians, who only guaranteed a spot in the SAC Tournament with a win on Wednesday, finished in a five-way tie for fourth-place in the league.  The Indians improve to 12-14 overall and 8-10 in the SAC, while the Wolves also join the log jam with a record of 13-13 and 8-10.

Newberry rallied from eight down in the final three minutes of regulation for force the extra time.  Jawuan Lockhart (Washington, DC) started the rally with a three-pointer with 2:38 left to cut the margin to 76-71.  He later had a steal that led to the tying basket by Chris Reynolds (Augusta, GA) with 1:05 remaining.  Catawba missed two three-pointers in the final minute, while Newberry had a turnover on its possession with seven seconds left.

The teams went back-and-forth to start the overtime period and Lockhart tied the contest at 82-all with 2:08 remaining.  Dominick Reid (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School) put the Indians up with a pair of free throws at the 1:45 mark then hit a long three-pointer with 55 seconds left to give Catawba an 87-82 lead. 

Lockhart brought the Wolves within 88-85 on a three-pointer with 19 seconds to go and Catawba suffered a turnover on an inbounds play.  Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) blocked a three-point attempt by Matt Dixon (Elizabeth City, NC) with four seconds to go and Reynolds’ desperation heave was short.

Freshman Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) led Catawba with 26 points, while Reid added 25 points and canned six three-pointers.  Newberry got a double-double from Tony Davis (Sarasota, FL), who had 17 points and a dozen rebounds.  Dixon and Lockhart each added 16.

Newberry took a 52-45 lead at the half, shooting 65% (19-of-29).  The Wolves led 63-52 before Catawba began to whittle away at the deficit.  A nine-point run pulled the Indians within 63-61 with 10:47 to go and Moore got a breakaway dunk after a Reid steal to put Catawba on top at 67-66 with 7:22 remaining. 

The Wolves cooled off after its hot first half, making only 8-of-38 (21%) of their attempts after the break.  Newberry held a 53-36 edge on the boards, including 22 on the offensive glass, but suffered 33 turnovers. 

Kelvin Drakeford (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School/Barton) had 13 points for Catawba off the bench.  Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) added 11 points, while Martin had 10 points, seven rebounds, three blocks and four steals.
