MISENHEIMER, NC -- Livingstone used a 27-2 run in the second half to grab a 75-51 win over Catawba at the Best Western of Albemarle Highway 52 Shootout on Saturday night at Pfeiffer's Merner Gym.  It marked the opener for both teams.

The Catawba Indians trailed by three at the break and pulled even at 44-all on a dunk by Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave).  Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, NC/Phillips Exeter HS) knotted the score at 46 with 11:13 to play, but Livingstone made its winning run from there.

The Blue Bears held Catawba to just a single basket for nearly 10 minutes to grab a 73-48 edge with just under two minutes remaining.  Martin ended the run on a three-pointer with 1:27 left.  Eladio Espinoza started the run on a pair of free throws with Jody Hill following with three straight baskets.  Hill capped a 16-0 run on a tip-in before Elon Edwards (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) scored with 4:34 remaining to make the score 62-48.

Edwards nearly had a triple double in his debut, leading Catawba with 14 points while adding eight rebounds and eight assists.  Perkins added a dozen points, while Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) scored eight points and pulled down 10 rebounds.

Hill led all scorers with 20 points for the Blue Bears and grabbed eight rebounds..  Mark Thomas followed with 18 points and dished out 10 assists.  Ethan Anderson chipped in with14 points.

Catawba cooled off after shooting 53% in the opening half, canning just 25% (6-of-24) in the second stanza.  After winning the battle on the boards in the opening half 18-10, Livingstone was able to even the total at 34-34 by game's end.  

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.
