Little's Double-Double Not Enough as Men's Basketball Loses at LR
HICKORY, NC -- Host Lenoir-Rhyne got 21 points from Denzel Dillingham and posted a 57-51 over Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Shuford Gym. The Bears improve to 10-3 overall and 3-2 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 4-9 and 1-4.
Neither team shot great, Lenoir-Rhyne hitting on 38% (22-of-58) and Catawba 37% (20-of-54) , but the Bears capitalized on 14 Catawba turnovers to score 17 points, while the Indians had just eight points on eight L-R miscues. The Indians were also just 7-of-28 (25%) from behind the arc.
Rob Noyes added a dozen points for the Bears. R.J. McClure tallied 10 points and Jarvis Perry handed out 10 assists. Dillingham added nine rebounds to his game-high 21 points. Catawba was led by Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS), who posted a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Lee Martin,(Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) chipped in with 13 points and Elon Edwards (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) scored a dozen.
Lenoir-Rhyne pulled out to an eight-point lead late in the first half, the largest lead of the game at 26-18. Catawba rallied back to cut the lead to 27-25 at the break following a three-pointer by Edwards with just under a minute left. A three-pointer from Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, NC/Phillips Exeter HS) and a layup from Little had the Indians up 30-27 a minute into the second half and ended a 12-1 run.
The Bears came back and went up by seven midway through the final half. Catawba pulled back ahead inside the final five minutes on four straight points from Edwards for a 49-48 lead with 3:36 left.
McClure put the Bears back up to stay and Dillingham canned a three-pointer to put LR on top 53-49 at the 1:50 mark. Edwards trimmed the margin to two with 1:41 left, but Catawba missed two shots to tie before Dillingham hit a pair of free throws with 14 seconds remaining.
Catawba will face another road test on Saturday as the Indians travels to Newberry for a 4 p.m. tipoff.
