Men's Basketball Hangs With #2 Alabama-Huntsville in Seven-Point Loss

SALISBURY, NC -- NCAA II second-ranked Alabama-Huntsville held off an upset bid from host Catawba and claimed an 84-77 win in men’s basketball action at the Salisbury Roundball Classic on Sunday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Chargers improve to 3-0, while the Catawba Indians fall to 2-2. 

Six players reached double figures for Alabama-Huntsville with Jaime Smith ((Birmingham, AL) leading the way with 18 points.  Josh Magette (Birmingham, AL) delivered a double-double for the second straight game with 13 points and 16 assists.  Andrew Donovan (Frankfort, KY) came off the bench to score a dozen points, while Xavier Baldwin (Adamsville, AL) and Srdjan Boskovic (Novi Sad, SERBIA) each tallied 11.  Zane Campbell (West Limestone, AL) rounded out the double-digit scorers with 10 points.

Freshman Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) led Catawba with 15 points and added four blocked shots.  Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) and Willie Gilmore (Fayetteville, NC/Trinity Christian) each added 13 points, while Maurice Knight (Portsmouth, VA/W. Branch HS/Kansas City CC) picked up 11 points.  Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) had eight points and eight rebounds.

The Chargers looked to pull away in both halves, but each time Catawba would rally and make the game close.  Consecutive three-pointers by Magette gave UAH a 30-16 lead at the mid point of the opening half.  A triple by Smith still had the Chargers up by 14 with 8:23 to go before Catawba began to whittle down the margin.

Knight scored four straight points and Cameron Lovelace (Cherryville, NC/Cherryville HS/N. Florida) added a three-pointer to get the Indians within 35-28.  Little got the Indians within three inside the final five minutes and a tip-in by Martin closed the gap to 44-43 with 49 seconds left in the half.  UAH was able to lead 46-43 at the break.

UAH went up by a dozen points in the opening six minutes of the second half, but the Indians again rallied behind five straight points from Stuart Thomson (Poynton, ENGLAND/Poynton) to cut the Catawba deficit to 6058 with 11:26 remaining.  Donovan answered with a three-pointer and Catawba was never able to get the game back to a single possession deficit.

Donovan again hit a big three-pointer with 3:25 remaining to put the Chargers up 79-71.  Two free throws by more with 45 seconds left pulled the Indians within 81-77, but Smith iced the issue with a three-pointer with 23 seconds remaining for the game’s final points.

Alabama-Huntsville canned nearly 60% (30-of-51) from the field and hit on 12-of-25 (48%) from long range.  Catawba shot 47% (26-of-55), but went just 30of-18 from behind the arc.
