Perkins Sizzles as Men's Basketball Downs Brevard

BREVARD, NC -- Freshman Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, NC/Phillips Exeter HS) poured in a career-high 27 points to lead visiting Catawba to a 71-63 win over Brevard in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Boshamer Gym.  The Catawba Indians up their record to 7-12 overall and 4-7 in the SAC.  The Tornados fall to 2-17 and 1-10.

Perkins hit on his first seven shots, six from behind the arc, en route to his career night.  He finished 9-of-10 from the field and 7-of-8 from long range.  He totaled 20 points in the first half to help stake the Indians to a 31-21 lead.  Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) had a double-double of 14 points and 15 rebounds, while Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) nearly had a double-double with 15 points and nine rebounds.

With the game tied at 10-all, Perkins hit a three-pointer to start a 16-0 run and the Indians would stay in front from there.  Perkins hit four straight triples at the beginning of the run then closed the half with his sixth from behind the arc for the 31-21 edge.

Brevard battled back.  Trailing 48-35 with 11 minutes remaining the Tornados got within a point with six minutes to play on a layup by Gerel Simmons.  Perkins nailed his only three-pointer of the second half on Catawba's ensuing possession and Martin followed with another from long range as the Indians scored eight straight to go up 60-51.  The Tornados never got closer than six the rest of the way.

Manzey Miller paced four double-figure scorers for Brevard with 17 points.  Alex Moe had 13 points, Miles Leathers 12 and Simmons 11.  Catawba won the battle on the boards 39-26 and grabbed 14 on the offensive glass.  Brevard had five fewer turnovers, but the Indians went 12-of-23 (52%) from behind the arc to just 26% (7-of-27) for the Tornados.  The hosts also did not capitalize on 22 trips to the line, making a mere 10 (46%). 

Catawba plays host to Anderson on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym at 4 p.m.
