Women's Basletball Falls to Newberry 67-55 as Wolves Close First Half on 14-1 Run
NEWBERRY, SC – Catawba was unable to handle a 14-1 run in the last five minutes of the first half as Newberry went on to win 67-55 in South Atlantic Conference women's basketball action on Saturday at Eleazer Arena. The Wolves improve to 12-4 overall and 4-2 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians fall to 7-7 and 3-3.
Newberry opened the game with an early 10-4 lead, before the visiting Lady Indians replied with a nine-point swing to take a 13-10 lead over the Wolves. Sophomore Haylee Lepaio snapped the Wolves scoreless streak with a layup, before Catawba's Elizabeth Merritt (Lexington, NC/E. Davidson HS) and Newberry junior Tasia Holdorf exchanged 3-point makes to push the score to 16-15 with the Catawba advantage.
The two teams continued to exchange makes, before Newberry ran away after a Holdorf layup sparked a 14-1 run to head into halftime with a 34-24 lead.
After an early second half layup by Brown to put the Wolves ahead by 12, Catawba slowly cut back into the game, pulling within five points with 16 minutes remaining. The five point differential was the smallest margin of the second half.
Catawba finished the game shooting 38.5% (20-52) from the field and went 4-for-12 (40%) from behind the arc. Merritt, Antoinette McPhail (Timmonsville, SC/Darlington/Paine), and Quaneasia Coleman (Duluth, GA/Northview HS) all scored in double digits for the Lady Indians. The Wolves went 22-for-43 (51%) from the field, 21-for-24 (87.5%) from the line and were led in scoring by Brown with 19 points.
Catawba returns home to Goodman Gymnasium on Wednesday night to take on Mars Hill for a 6 p.m. tip.
