12_MBB_LittleTyreceBIG2

HARTSVILLE, SC -- Despite a career night from Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS), Catawba could not upend host Coker as the Cobras claimed a 101-82 win in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Timberlake-Lawton Gym.  The Cobras improve to 8-5 overall and 5-4 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 4-9 and 4-5.

Little netted a career-high 34 points and posted his second double-double in three games by adding 10 rebounds for the Indians.  He made 12-of-20 field goals and went 10-of-12 at the line.  The junior also blocked three shots. 

Coker was led by Julian Nelson and Teon Beckett, who both topped 20 points.  Nelson tallied 24 points, canning 9-of-17 shots, including a trio of three-pointers.  Beckett tossed in 21 points, making 10-of-16 shots, and grabbed nine rebounds.

Coker used a hot start and an early 11-0 run to go up 17-6.  The lead would grow to 26-12 after 12 minutes.  Catawba trimmed the deficit to six and had a possession to cut into the margin more, but missed a shot.  The Cobras would score the next four points to go up 44-34 and took a 44-36 lead at the break.

Catawba could not muster a rally as the Cobras kept around a double-digit margin most of the second half.  Nelson stretched the lead to 60-44 on a three-pointer at the 13:14 mark and his two free throws with 8:06 to play made it 75-58.

 Coker shot over 50% in each half, finishing the game by making 40-of-72 (56%) attempts.  The Cobras were 7-of-13 from behind the arc and held a 45-32 edge on the glass.  Larry Felder and Eren Moses also reached double figures for Coker with 13 and 12 points, respectively.

Catawba hit on 48% for the game and made 52% in the second half, but could not cut into the Cobra advantage.  The Indians were just 3-of-16 from long range.  Nick Houston (China Grove, NC/Carson HS) made all three of the three-pointers for the Indians and scored 13 points.  Kijuan Arrington (Newport News, VA/Denbigh HS/Henry CC) scored a dozen with seven rebounds.

Catawba is back on the road Saturday as the Indians travel to Mars Hill for a 4 p.m. tip.
