Men's Basketball Can't Dig Out of Early Hole at Belmont Abbey

BELMONT, NC -- Belmont Abbey got 26 points from Tyshawn Good and held off a late Catawba rally to post a 88-81 win in men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at the Wheeler Center.  The Crusaders improve to 7-2, while the Catawba Indians fall to 3-5.

An eight-point run by the Crusaders after Catawba had taken its only lead at 10-9 gave Belmont Abbey a 17-10 lead after six minutes.  Terrone Sheffey gave Belmont Abbey a 48-27 lead with 3:27 to go in the half.  The Indians were able to pull within 15 at the break.

Good gave the Crusaders a 66-44 advantage with 13:24 remaining, but Catawba would whittle away the deficit from there.  Elon Edwards (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) scored eight straight points for the Tribe to cut the margin to single digits at 71-64 with 7:46 left.  A three-pointer by Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, NC/Phillips Exeter) pulled Catawba within 73-68 with 5:27 remaining.

Belmont Abbey regrouped, scoring six straight points to go up 79-68 with 4:29 to go.  Edwards responded again with another eight-point stretch that got Catawba to within a single possession at 79-76 with 1:10 remaining.  Good scored for the Crusaders with 54 seconds left and Darryl Durham added a free throw after a Catawba miss for an 82-76 lead with 37 seconds remaining.  Good made a layup and added four free throws in the final 16 seconds to help the Crusaders stretch the margin in the end.

Edwards, who was coming off a 33-point effort at Anderson two weeks ago, had 25 of his game-high 32 points in the second half.  He hit on 13-of-20 shots, including 6-of-11 from behind the arc.  Perkins added 17, canning five three-pointers, while Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) collected 16 points.

Sheffey followed Good in the scoring for Belmont Abbey with 18 points off the bench.  Durham added a double-double with 16 points and 14 rebounds.  Chris Davis also had 16 points for the Crusaders.

Catawba will host Limestone at 7 p.m. on Wednesday in its last contest before the Christmas break.
