Women's Basketball Cruises to Opening Win

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba rolled to a 69-49 season-opening win over visiting Queens in women’s basketball action on Tuesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians got 14 points each from Chloe Bully (Hannut, BELGIUM/KOL Landen) and Nisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day) in grabbing the win.  The Royals fall to 0-2.

Bully, a freshman, hit on 6-of-9 attempts, including a pair of three-pointers, and recorded four steals.  Long, a senior who sat out last season, added six rebounds, three assists and three steals.  Dyonna Battle (Rocky Mount, NC) led Queens with 11 points and Sarah Myatt (Burlington, NC) pulled down 11 rebounds.

The game was tightly contested over the opening ten minutes, but Catawba began to pull away over the final eight minutes.  A 10-0 run in a little over a two minute span helped the Lady Indians jump out to a 26-16 lead.  Bully hit a pair of three-pointers to start the run, while Mallary Clay (Lansing, NC/Ashe Co. HS) and Taylor May (China Grove, NC/S. Rowan HS) added jumpers to give Catawba its 10-point edge at the 5:43 mark of the half.

The Lady Indians took a 30-20 lead to the break as Queens shot just 27% in the opening stanza.  After going down by 12 early in the second half, the Royals reeled off six straight to close within 32-6, but Catawba would answer with a 16-2 run to put the game away.  Queens never got closer than 16 points the rest of the way.

Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day) scored eight points and grabbed six rebounds for Catawba, while Elizabeth Merritt (Lexington, SC/E. Davidson HS) also scored eight points.  Shonice Pettaway (Walstonburg, NC) delivered eight points and nine rebounds for Queens.  Abby Pettit (Apex, NC) also scored eight for the Royals.
