SALISBURY, NC -- Lincoln Memorial used a big night on the boards to pull away from host Catawba, posting a 111-90 win in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym. The 10th-ranked Railsplitters improve to 15-1 overall and 11-1 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians fall to 5-11 and 5-7.
LMU held a 53-30 edge on the glass, grabbing 19 off the offensive end which led to 25 second-chance points. Chance Jones (Knoxville, TN) and Curtis McMillion (Fayetteville, NC) each scored 24 to pace the Railsplitters. McMillion completed a double-double off the bench by pulling down 13 rebounds. Vincent Bailey (Jennings, FL) added 20 points for Lincoln Memorial.
Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, NC/Phillips Exeter HS) scored 21 points to lead the Indians. Kijuan Arrington (Newport News, VA/Denbigh HS/Henry CC) followed with 16 points and Elon Edwards (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) scored 13.

LMU led by 11 with just under five minutes left then put the contest away with a 13-5 spurt that Jones capped with a three-pointer. LMU shot 57% for the game.
