Men's Basketball earns first league victory with win over Mars Hill

SALISBURY, NC – Catawba College rallied from a 10-point second half deficit, getting a career-high 14 points off the bench from Chris Everett (Charlotte, NC) to defeat visiting Mars Hill 76-67 in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym. The Indians snap a two-game losing streak and improve to 6-10 overall and 1-2 in the SAC. Mars Hill falls to 10-5 and 1-2. The teams battled through five ties and six lead changes in the opening half with the Lions holding a 32-29 advantage at the break. Mars Hill would used an early 8-0 run in the second half to grab a 42-32 lead, but down eight, Catawba reeled off three consecutive three pointers to draw within 46-45 with 13:32 remaining. The Indians would tie the game three times over the next five minutes before taking the lead at 55-52 on a three-pointer by Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC) with 7:32 left. The teams traded leads over the next three minutes before Everett gave the Tribe the lead for good at 61-60 on a layin with 4:42 to go. Petty would increase the Catawba lead to 68-62 on a triple with 1:51 remaining. The Indians, who entered the game next to last in the league in free throw percentage at 65%, held off the Lions by connecting on 8-of-10 at the stripe in the final 1:01. Catawba would hit on 23-of-28 (82%) for the game, including a perfect 8-for-8 by Everett. The Lions were only 14-of-22 at the line. Catawba held a 33-23 edge on the boards and scored 17 second-chance points to just five for Mars Hill. The Indians also held a 32-9 scoring advantage off the bench.
