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.
