CHARLOTTE, NC -- Catawba College blew open a tight game over the final 10 minutes and defeated host Queens 88-59 in women’s basketball action at Ovens Athletic Center on Monday night. The win marked the seventh straight for the Lady Indians, who improve to 10-3 overall. Queens falls to 4-6. Both teams struggled to score in the opening moments as Catawba managed an 8-6 edge through the opening six minutes. The Lady Indian reserves played much of the opening 10 minutes and led 11-8 before a 14-2 run by Queens put the Royals up 22-13 with 9:54 to go in the half. Catawba would respond with a 13-4 run to tie the score at 26-26 on a pair of free throws by Dorthell Little (Rockingham, NC). Catawba would lead 39-31 at the break. Queens would open the second half on a 16-4 run to grab a 47-43 advantage with 14:27 left.

Catawba led only 52-49 heading into the final 10 minutes, but would clamp down on Queens and held the Royals to a single bucket over a seven and half minute span to break out to a 72-51 lead. Three-pointer by Ashley Cox (Richmond, VA) and Isiaette Darden (Wilson, NC) ignited the 20-2 run that put the game away.
