MARS HILL, NC – Catawba College snapped a four-game losing streak by defeating host Mars Hill 78-72 in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Stanford Arena. The Indians improve to 8-15 overall and 3-7 in the SAC, while Mars Hill falls to 12-11 and 2-8.

Tied at 34-34 at the break, Mars Hill opened up a 43-36 marking in the opening two and half minutes of the final frame. A pair of free throws by Phipps and three more by Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) reduced the margin to 44-41. The Indians eventually regained the lead at 48-46 on a three-pointer by Brian Frasier (Martinsville, VA) with 13:48 remaining and would not trail again. Phipps would then score eight of the Tribe’s next 10 points as the Indians gained a 58-53 lead. A jumper by the Lions’ Dominique Williams (Savannah, GA) tied the game at 61-61 with 6:37 left and the teams would battle through three more tied before a pair of free throws from Magnusson with 1:34 left gave the Tribe the lead for good at 74-72.
