Livingstone shot 49% for the game to 40% for the Indians.  The Blue Bears also had less turnovers, 13 to 21 for Catawba.  Livingstone did better at the line as well, making 14-of-20 to just 3-of-9 for the Indians.

Catawba started strong and led 22-14 midway through the first half following a three-pointer by Perkins.  The Indians stretched the margin to 35-24 on a pair of free throws by Edwards at the 5:18 mark.  Livingstone rallied from there, taking the lead at 38-37 on a pair of free throws by Thomas with 1:04 left in the half.  The Blue Bears led 40-37 at the break.
