Hicks Puts Up Double-Double in Women's Basketball Loss to Limestone
SALISBURY, NC -- Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day HS) scored 21 points and brought down 22 rebounds for Catawba in an 81-69 non-conference defeat at the hands of Limestone Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym. The Lady Indians drop to 1-1 on the young season, as the Saints climb to 3-1.
Hicks’ rebound total was the fifth-best in school history and the best since a 24-rebound performance by Danyel Locklear in 2003. The all-time record of 25 was set by Lynn Nance in 1986.
Senior point guard Nisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day HS) poured in 19 points to go with three assists. Jolysa Conner (Charlotte, NC/Waddell HS) added 14 points and four rebounds to help the Lady Indian cause.
Tied at 60 with 4:48 left in the game, Limestone outscored 21-9 down the stretch to pull out the victory. The Lady Saints were led by shifty point guard Stephanie Hayes with 26 points and six assists. But it was clutch free-throw shooting by forward Tia Williams that sunk the Lady Indians.
Williams scored 12 of her 16 points, seven from the line, in the last five minutes as Long, Conner and Quaneasia Coleman (Duluth, GA/Northview HS) all fouled out trying to slow the game and the Saints.
Catawba had cut it to 64-63 on two free-throws from Long with three and-a-half minutes to play when Limestone put the proverbial nail in the Lady Indian’s coffin by connecting on its next three possessions. The spurt culminated in a three-pointer by Williams that made it 71-63 with 1:25 to go.
Down five at halftime, Catawba battled back to take a 41-39 lead, but Limestone use a 6-0 run to pull away temporarily. There were three ties and three lead changes in the second half before it was all over.
The Lady Indians jumped out to an early 15-5 lead on two layups and a jumper by Hicks. Catawba forced the Lady Saints into eight turnovers during the stretch to help create the 10-point deficit. Limestone would climb back into the game on two three-pointers by Lindsey Woody and one by Young to jump ahead 30-28 with just under two minutes to go in the half.
Catawba travels across town to rival Livingstone College on Tuesday, Nov. 22 to take on the Blue Bears at 5:30 pm.
