Arrington's Big First Half Helps Men's Basketball Knock Off Wingate

SALISBURY, NC -- Kijuan Arrington (Newport News, VA/Denbigh HS/Henry CC) scored 21 points and host Catawba put six players in double figures in posting a 90-77 win over Wingate in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians up their record to 5-10 overall and 5-6 in the SAC.  The Bulldogs fall to 10-5 and 7-4.

Catawba never trailed and led the rest of the way after a three-pointer by Elon Edwards (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) put the Indians up 7-4 at the 17:39 mark.  A tip-in by Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) pushed the lead to 10 after four and half minutes.  The Bulldogs trimmed a 12-point deficit to four midway through the half, but Catawba raced out to a 15-point edge by the break.

Catawba, which scored just 52 points in an early season loss to the Bulldogs, held a 52-37 lead at the half in the rematch.  Arrington had 17 of his points in the opening half.  Little blocked three shots in the opening stanza to set a new school record of 178 career blocks.  The junior surpassed the total of Chris Wooldridge. 

Wingate whittled the Indians lead to six with 13:47 left and still trailed by that margin with just over seven minutes to play.  Edwards pushed the margin back to 10 with 6:56 to go and Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, NC/Phillips Exeter HS) upped it to 14 with 3:34 remaining.  Wingate never closed to within single digits the rest of the way.

Catawba held a 41-37 edge on the glass against one of the top rebounding teams in the league.  The Indians also committed just 10 turnovers and made 24-of-30 (80%) at the line. 

Joining Arrington in double figures for Catawba were Perkins and Edwards, who each scored 13 points.  Little followed with a dozen points, while Vismantas Marijosius (Kedainiai, LITHUANIA/North Hills) and Julian Sampah (Greensboro, NC/Greensboro Day) added 11 and 10 points, respectfully.  Sampah just missed a double-double with nine rebounds.

Ryan Daye paced Wingate with 19 points, scoring 13 in the opening half.  Deion Turman had 12 of his 18 points after the break.  Wingate shot 48%, but did commit 16 turnovers.

Catawba plays host to 10th-ranked Lincoln Memorial on Saturday afternoon in Goodman Gym at 4 p.m.
