CHARLOTTE, NC — The Catawba men’s basketball team opened its season this weeked by splitting a pair of games at the Wendy’s Classic hosted by Johnson C. Smith University on Friday and Saturday at Brayboy Gym. The Indians opened with a 74-63 win over Elizabeth City State on Friday, then fell to host J.C. Smith 80-67 on Saturday. Catawba led nearly the entire game against Elizabeth City on Friday. The Tribe reeled off the first nine points and held off several Viking runs in the final half. Brian Carter, Kevin Petty and Duke Phipps accounted for 43 of the Tribe’s points. Carter led the way with 16, while Phipps added 15 and Petty 12. Each also added eight rebounds as Catawba held a 47-28 edge on the boards. Courtney Oglesby led ECSU with 16 points, while Davis Cleveland added 13. Catawba opened the game with a pair of technical free throws by Petty before the opening tip. After Catawba built its 9-0 lead, the Viking would claim a 17-15 lead iwth 6:17 remaining in the opening half. The Indians regrouped and held a 35-27 lead at the break. The Vikings got within 45-43, but six straight points by Carter put the Tribe up 51-43 with 12 minutes to play. A three-pointer by freshman Jolly Manning pushed the Tribe lead to 62-49 with 6:21 left. The Tribe converted its free throws down the stretch, going 24-of-30 for the game, for the win. On Saturday, the Tribe enjoyed the lead for much of the game, but a second half scoring drought was costly in the 80-67 loss. The Indians led 25-20 at the break and held a 43-38 edge in the final half after a pair of three-pointers by freshman Helgi Magnusso, but that is when the Tribe went cold. The Bulls would score 11 straight points for a 49-43 edge and added a 21-1 run after Catawba tied the contest at 51-51. The Tribe hit on just eight of 31 three-pointers and were outscored 15-3 at the fould line. Carter had a team-leading 20 points for Catawba, while Magnusson added 17. #####
