Halftime Deficit Too Big to Overcome in Men's Basketball Loss at Limestone

GAFFNEY, SC -- The Catawba men's basketball team found itself down by 19 early in the second half then battled back to within a point before eventually falling 78-66 to host Limestone on Friday night at the Timkin Center.  The Saints improve 7-6, sweeping the season series from the Catawba Indians, who fall to 3-7.

Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) scored 21 of his game-high 30 points in the second half to help the Indians rally.  He went 10-of-23 from the field and added four three-pointers.  Freshman Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) produced a double-double with 20 points and 11 rebounds.

Charles Blue was the top man for Limestone, scoring 17 points and grabbing a dozen rebounds.  Phillip Moultrie collected 21 points, while Nick Debnam handed out eight assists.  The Saints shot 60% for the game while helping hold Catawba to just 33% shooting.

Catawba led only briefly in the opening half before a 10-0 Limestone run that was capped with a Blue three-pointer gave the hosts a 20-12 edge at the 11:05 mark.  Limestone stretched the lead to 45-27 at the break and a free throw by Moultrie to open the second half gave the Saints their largest lead of the night at 46-27.

The Indians went to the free throw line to cut into the margin, hitting six straight to help pull the Tribe within 49-39 just five minutes into the half.  Moore hit consecutive three-pointers and added a layup as Catawba moved to just four down with 6:47 left.

Another three-pointer by Moore and a layup by Little cut the deficit to 61-58 at the 5:03 mark and Moore's jumper with 3:50 remaining pulled Catawba to within a point at 63-62.  Blue helped stem the tide with consecutive baskets to put the Saints up 67-62.  Moore got Catawba within 67-64 with 2:40 left, but Limestone finished the game on an 11-2 run, making seven of their last eight from the line.
