Catawba falls to 7-12 overall and 2-4 in the SAC, while Presbyterian, ranked sixth in the region, improves to 17-4 and 4-2. Catawba played well at the outset and grabbed a quick lead at 12-5 run as senior guard Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC) tallied five early points. Presbyterian would responded with an 11-4 run over the next seven minutes and tied the game. The game stayed close for the rest of the first half until the Blue Hose took the lead for good at 21-20 on a free throw by senior center Preston Davis (Charlotte, NC) at the 6:02 mark. Presbyterian held the lead for the rest of the first half and led 32-27 at intermission. The Blue Hose held a comfortable lead in the final half until the Indians trimmed the lead to 54-52 at the 6:51 mark on a free throw by freshman guard Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, NC). Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) missed a chance to give the Tribe a lead on its next possession and after a three-pointer by Presbyterian, Petty also misfired from long range as the Blue Hose went on a 22-7 run over a five minute span to extend the lead to 79-59 and put the game out of reach. Down the stretch the Blue Hose hit 10-of-11 free throws in the last five minutes to hold off a late Indian rally.
