14_MBB_RuckerChanceBA

NEWBERRY, SC -- Newberry pulled away from visiting Catawba late in the second half and posted a 99-86 win in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Tuesday night at Eleazer Arena.  The Wolves stay undefeated, improving to 5-0 overall and 3-0 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 1-5 and 1-2.

Kijuan Arrington (Newport News, VA/Denbigh HS/Henry CC) and Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, NC/Phillips Exeter HS) had big games for Catawba.  Arrington scored 24 points and grabbed eight rebounds, while Rucker added 23 points.  They combined to hit on 15-of-29 shots with each canning a pair of three-pointers.

Catawba shot extremely well, making 31-of-55 (56%) from the field and connecting on 6-of-13 (46%) from behind the arc.  The Indians could not overcome 26 turnovers and also made just 18-of-33 (54%) at the line.  Newberry made 43% of its shots, going 11-of-26 (43%) from three-point range, and committed 14 miscues.

Dondray Walker led all scorers with 27 points for Newberry.  He went 9-of-14 from the field and made 7-of-8 at the line.  Four other Wolves reached double figures.  Cole Birchfield, who canned four triples, scored 18 points, Demarkus Smith had 14, James Ashby tallied 13 and Mitch Riggs chipped in with 10 points.  Smith hit a trio of three-pointers and grabbed six boards.

The teams went back-and-forth in the first half on.  Newberry held an early five-point, but Catawba rallied back and went on top 44-37 after a layup by Troy Warren (Mooresville, NC/Lake Norman HS) with 3:44 before the break.  The Wolves outscored Catawba 10-1 over the last two minutes of the half to lead 50-47 at the break.

Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) led Catawba with nine rebounds and also blocked three shots.  Chance Rucker (Concord, NC/Concord HS/Benedict) scored eight points and pulled down seven boards.  Elon Edwards (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) scored eight points and handed out five assists.

Catawba is idle until December 7 when the Indians travel to Carson-Newman for a 4 p.m. contest.
