Carter's 31 not enough as Men's Basketball falls at L-R

HICKORY, NC — Catawba College fell 75-71 to host Lenoir-Rhyne to open South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Saturday night at Shuford Gym. The Tribe fell to 5-9 overall despite a 31-point effort from senior forward Brian Carter (Alexandria, VA). Lenoir- Rhyne improved to 9-3. Carter kept the Tribe in the game, hitting on 13-of-16 shots to lead all scorers. Freshman Rokus Bartasius (Kaunus, LITHUANIA) was the only other Indian to reach double figures with 11 points as he connected on three three-pointers, all in the final half. Rashad Price (Charlotte, NC) led the Bears with 19 points. His three-pointer at the first-half buzzer gave L-R a 28-26 lead at the break. Neither team could gain much of an advantage in the opening half as the Bears enjoyed its biggest lead at 8-2, while Catawba held a 17-13 edge with 6:29 left in the opening frame. Lenoir-Rhyne would pull out to a 12-point lead to open the second half as Price accounted for nine points and Roman Davis (Walnut Grove, NC) six as the Bears would gain a 51-39 lead with 12:41 left. Carter would hit a pair of baskets and Bartasius canned a three to bring the Tribe within 53-46. A Brian Frasier (Martinsville, VA) jumper was followed a steal and layup by Duke Phipps on the inbounds play to cut the deficit to 55-50 with 9:56 remaining. Carter would add a layup and two free throws, then Bartasius tied the score on a three- pointer at 57-57 with 7:41 left. Ryan Pitts (Baltimore, MD) would score and Randy Mauldin (Albemarle, NC) connected for a three-pointer to push L-R back on top 62-57 and Mauldin would add two more three's to give the Bears a 70-62 lead with 2:30 to play. Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC) would answer with a three-pointer for Catawba, while Marcus Reddick (Salisbury, NC) hit two free throws with 46 seconds remaining to pull the Tribe within 72-69. Catawba elected to play for a stop, but Price broke down the defense and fed Pitts for a dunk with 16 ticks remaining. Frasier hit a layup with seven seconds to play, but Price hit the first of two free throws with four seconds left to seal the win. Pitts added 15 points and seven boards for the Bears, who hit on 19-of-29 shots (66%) in the final half. Davis had 14 points and six boards. The Tribe hit on 59% in the final half (17-of- 29) and canned five three-pointers. Both teams took care of the ball as Catawba committed just 12 turnovers and the Bears 10. Lenoir-Rhyne held a 31-29 edge on the boards. #####
