Men's Basketball Picks Up First Home League Win

SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba built a 26-point lead early in the second half then held off a late charge by visiting Brevard to take a 71-60 victory in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 6-15 and 3-10 in the SAC, while the Tornados fall to 3-20 and 2-11.

Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) scored 23 of his game-high 35 points in the opening half as Catawba grabbed a 43-22 lead at the break.  A 12-0 run which started five minutes into the contest helped the Indians go on top 18-4.  Catawba pushed its lead to 41-17 at one point before taking the 21-point advantage at the half.

A layup by Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) gave the Indians a 54-28 edge with 15:39 to go, but Brevard would begin to eat into the lead from there.  Gaither Hendrix (Lenoir, NC) hit a pair of three-pointers in a 17-4 run the cut the margin to 13 and when Jonathan Hopper (Waynesville, NC) canned a triple it was 61-52 with 7:21 remaining.

Little converted a three-point play for Catawba to give the Indians a 64-54 edge then Jermichael Tanner (Columbus, NC) brought the Tornados within 66-60 at the 4:03 mark.  Brevard had one shot to make it a one possession game, but a three-point attempt from Hendrix was off the mark.  Moore hit a pair of free throws then converted a three-point play to return Catawba to a double-digit lead with 1:36 left.

Moore’s 35 points came on 11-of-21 shooting, including going 4-of-10 from behind the arc.  He was perfect on nine free throw tries.  He was the lone Indian in double figures.  Justin Huntley (Mooresville, NC/Mooresville HS) followed with nine points and Kelvin Drakeford (Charlotte, NC/Cannon School/Barton) added eight.  Little pulled down 10 boards and scored eight points. 

Brevard was led by Hendrix, who tallied 19 points, including 17 after the break.  Tanner chipped in with nine points with Darius Moose (Salisbury, NC) scoring eight points and grabbing seven rebounds. 

After shooting 50% in the opening half, Catawba fell off to 35% in the final half, finishing the game at 43%.  The Tornados shot 45%, but were outrebounded 42-27.
