Women's Basketball Comes Up One-Point Short vs. Carson-Newman

SALISBURY, NC -- Carson-Newman held off a late Catawba rally to claim a 60-59 win in South Atlantic Conference women's basketball action on Wednesday night Goodman Gym.  The Lady Eagles improve to 14-10 overall and 8-9 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians surer their first league home loss, falling to 15-10 and 11-6.

Carson-Newman trailed by five with 15 minutes remaining when Tatum Burstrom got hot.  She canned all six of her three-pointers in a seven minute span to push the Lady Eagles on top 56-44 with 7:28 remaining.  Carson-Newman would hit only one more shot after that last three-pointer Catawba tried a valiant comeback.

Quaneasia Coleman (Duluth, GA/Northview HS) hit a three-pointer and a layup to start the Catawba rally.  After a layup by Taylor May (China Grove, NC/S. Rowan HS), the Lady Indians trailed by just a point with 2:09 left.  Catawba had a pair of shots to take the lead, but Burstrom connected on two free throws to expand the C-N lead to 60-57 with 17 seconds left.

After a missed three-pointer by Catawba, May had two follow shots and was fouled on the second, but could not make the basket with two seconds left.  She hit the initial free throw and tried to miss the second, but banked it in.  The Lady Eagles were able to run the clock down to a half second before Catawba could four again.

Burstrom scored 19 of her game-high 24 points after the break to lead the Carson-Newman charge.  Nikki James and Shyra Clark each tallied 11.  Coleman led Catawba with a career-high 23 points.  May scored a dozen and Chloe Bully (Hannut, BELGIUM/KOL Landen) collected 10 points and handed out six assists. 

Catawba closes out its regular season on Saturday as the Lady Indians travel to Lincoln Memorial for a 6 p.m. tip-off.
