Bully Scores 17 in Women's Basketball's Loss at #5 USC Aiken


AIKEN, SC -- USC Aiken, ranked fifth in NCAA II, claimed a 78-47 win over visiting Catawba in women’s basketball action on Saturday night at the USCA Convocation Center.  The Pacers improve to 3-0, while the Catawba Indians fall to 0-2.

Catawba held one brief lead at 3-2 following a three-pointer by Elizabeth Merritt (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS), but the Pacers eased away after that.  A 9-0 run, capped on a jumper by Kayla Harris, put USCA on top 18-8.  Chloe Bully (Hannut, BELGIUM/KOL Landen) trimmed the deficit to 18-11, but a 7-2 run by the Pacers upped the lead to 25-13.  Aiken led 36-21 at the break and never let Catawba back in the game, 

Bully tallied 17 points to lead the Lady Indians, hitting on 4-of-6 from behind the arc.  Merritt added nine points.  Catawba shot just 28% for the game, while the Pacers hit on 51% and made 10 three-pointers.  USCA held a +10 margin on the boards and committed seven less turnovers. 

Harris and Danielle Tarailo each had 15 for USC Aiken.  Mackenzie Reese added a dozen.  Both Harris and Reese grabbed seven rebounds, while Brittany Hill pulled down eight boards. 

Catawba will be on the road Tuesday at Livingstone for a 6 p.m. tip-off.
