Men's Basketball Drops Second Straight in Overtime


SALISBURY, NC -- Carson-Newman got past host Catawba 63-58 in overtime in a defensive battle in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Eagles up their record to 12-6 overall and 9-5 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 5-13 and 5-9.  It was the second straight overtime loss for the Indians.

Jared Johnson led Carson-Newman with 15 points and hit four big free throws in the overtime.  Ish Sanders followed with 13 points, despite making just 4-of-15 shots, and Carson Brooks added a dozen points before fouling out.  Antoine Davis was held to just eight points, but did grab 10 rebounds.

Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) collected a double-double for Catawba with 16 points and 14 rebounds.  Kijuan Arrington (Newport News, VA/Denbigh HS/Henry CC) also scored 16 points for the Indians, while Jalen Byrd (Hickory, NC/Hickory HS) and Nick Houston (China Grove, NC/Carson HS) each added 10 off the bench.

Carson-Newman trailed by three at the break, but used a 14-1 run early in the second half to go on top 38-29 after a three-point play by Reid Burke.  The Eagles extended the lead eventually to 10 before Catawba rallied back down the stretch.

The Indians trailed 52-45 with four minutes remaining when they started their charge.  Houston canned a three pointer to trim the margin to four and Little made it 55-52 on a layup with 51 seconds left.  Catawba forced a missed shot on the ensuing Eagle possession and Byrd tied it when he completed a three-point play with 10 seconds left.  Sanders missed a three-pointer for C-N in the final seconds.

With the game tied at 57-all, Johnson put the Eagles up to stay on two free throws with 2:17 remaining.  Little cut it to one on a free throw at the 1:46 mark, but Catawba turned it over with a chance to go on top.  Sanders upped the margin to 61-58 in the final minute and following a Catawba miss, Johnson iced it with two from the line with 17 seconds remaining.

Neither team shot well as Carson-Newman was held to 36.5% shooting and Catawba to only 32.3%.  The Indians held a 48-39 edge on the glass, but committed three more turnovers and were not nearly as efficient at the line.  C-N went 24-for-30 (80%) at the stripe, while Catawba made just 13-of-24 (54%).  The Eagles made 1-of-18 from behind the arc and Catawba managed to hit five in 24 attempts from long range.

Catawba stays at home for its next contest which will be against Queens at Goodman Gym on Wednesday night at 8 p.m.
