Men's Basketball Falls in Overtime to L-R

SALISBURY, NC – Lenoir-Rhyne’s Denzel Dillingham (Hickory, NC)  scored 24 of his game-high 26 points after the break to lead the Bears to an 86-74 overtime win over host Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Bears improve to 15-6 overall and 8-5 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 7-14 and 4-9.

Lenoir-Rhyne led from the 8:06 mark of the first half until late in regulation when the Indians reclaimed the advantage on a five-point possession.  Elon Edwards (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) made three of five free throws, while Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) had two offensive rebounds and a stick back to put Catawba up 60-59 with 1:18 remaining.

The Bears scored the next six points, but Catawba got a three-pointer from Lee Martin (Mt. Airy, NC/N. Surry HS/Hargrave) to make it 65-63 and another from Vismantas Marijosius (Kedainiai, LITHUANIA/North Hills Christian) with 10 seconds left to send the game to extra time.

Dillingham took over in overtime.  He had four quick points only to see the Bears fall behind after consecutive three-pointers from Nick Houston (China Grove, NC/Carson HS) and Martin that gave Catawba a 72-70 advantage.  Dillingham tied the game with two free throws and B.J. Beasley (Charlotte, NC) added a pair at the line to give Lenoir-Rhyne the lead for good with 2:52 remaining.

Dillingham scored 12 of the first 14 points for the Bears in overtime and finished the five-minute session with 14 points.  Beasley was the other start for Lenoir-Rhyne, posting a double-double of 25 points and 12 rebounds.  The Bears shot 53% (28-of-53) for the game.

Catawba five players in double figures.  Little led the way with 15 points and seven rebounds before fouling out late in regulation.  Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, NC/Phillips Exeter HS) added 14 points and Marijosius 13 points before he fouled out in overtime.  Martin and Houston each collected 11 points.

The Indians travel to Tusculum on Saturday afternoon at 4 p.m.
