Women's Basketball Comes Back to Defeat Livingstone

SALISBURY, NC -- The Lady Indians of Catawba subdued cross-town rival Livingstone 91-77 Tuesday night at the Blue Bear’s Trent Gym. Catawba ups its record to 2-1 while Livingstone falls to 1-5.

Nisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day HS) collected 24 points and distributed seven assists while Dana Hicks (York, SC/Gaston Day HS) scored 22 points with 16 rebounds. Lauren Lewis (Concord, NC/N.Mecklenburg HS) chipped in with 13 points, going 3-for-5 from beyond the arc.

Despite shooting under 30% in the first half and being down seventeen at one point, the Lady Indians battled back to secure the victory knocking down 21-for-32 shot attempts after halftime and forcing the Blue Bears into 26 turnovers. Long had three thefts for Catawba as Hicks and Jolysa Conner (Charlotte, NC/Waddell HS) added two apiece.

Livingstone held a 61-56 lead at the 10:18 mark in the second half when the momentum shifted. After a Taylor May (China Grove, NC/S.Rowan HS) layup, the Lady Indians caused two straight turnovers which led to another layup by Long and a jumper by Quaneasia Coleman (Duluth, GA/Northview HS), giving Catawba a 62-61 lead.

The Blue Bear’s struggled with their shot in the stretch as the Lady Indian defense held them without a field goal until the 5:48 mark when Mariah Harden hit three-pointer to cut the deficit to 74-67. Catawba was aided by going 9-of-10 from the line during the period.

Hicks canned a medium-range jumper on an assist from Long with 2:16 to go in the game and the Lady Indians coasted from there as the Blue Bears had more turnovers (3) than field goals (1) to close out the game.

Livingstone was hitting most of its shots in the first half while Catawba was not as it raced to a 40-23 advantage. Cierra York, Rashida Elbourne and Montiya Harrison all hit long-range bombs to propel the Blue Bears to the big lead.

Lewis nailed a three-pointer off the bench while Long got hot making a triple of her own along with two more baskets to cut the margin to 43-32 at the break.

Catawba will host its annual Comfort Suites Classic starting Friday, Nov. 25 at 6 pm as it takes on USC Aiken.
