12_MBB_LittleTyreceBIG2

SALISBURY, NC -- Queens used a big second-half to knock off host Catawba 77-67 in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Royals improve to 10-9 overall and 8-7 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 5-14 and 5-10. 

Catawba was led by Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS), who nearly posted a triple-double in the loss.  The junior scored 14 points, grabbed nine rebounds and swatted away a school record nine blocked shots.  Seven of his blocks came in the opening half.  He shared the previous mark with Kajuan Mayo.

Josh Clyburn (Charlotte, NC) returned to action after missing four games for Queens and tallied a team-high 22 points.  Joby Glymph (Lexington, SC) added 19 points and handed out six assists.  Jarrett Stokes (Smyrna, GA) scored 16 points with Logan Evans (Raleigh, NC) pulling down 11 rebounds for the victors.

Kijuan Arrington (Newport News, VA/Denbigh HS/Henry CC) led Catawba in scoring with 16 points and had seven rebounds.  Julian Sampah (Greensboro, NC/Greensboro Day) had a dozen points off the bench and Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, NC/Phillips Exeter) tossed in 10 points with five assists.

Catawba held a one-point lead at the break after a back-and-forth first half.  With the game tied at 40-all early in the second half, Glymph hit a three-pointer that started an 8-0 run that Clyburn capped with a three-point play and a 48-40 Royals lead with 14:20 remaining.  The lead grew to 10 following a three-pointer from Stokes at the 11:06 mark.

Down 10 with just over five minutes to play, Catawba rallied back within three.  Arrington started a 9-2 run with a three-pointer and ended it on a layup to make it 68-65 with 2:36 remaining.  Jared Hendryx (Durham, NC) got a big tip-in for Queens with 1:42 left for a five-point lead and the Royals went 5-of-6 at the line in the last 38 seconds to ice it as Catawba failed to score in the final two minutes of the contest.

Queens shot 44% for the game and 52% (14-of-27) in the second half.  Catawba hit just 33% in the final half and finished at 38% for the game.  The Indians tied the school mark with 12 blocks in the game.  Queens recorded seven blocks, three each from Clyburn and Hendryx.

Catawba will face Tusculum on the road Saturday afternoon at Pioneer Arena with a contest slated to start around 4 p.m.
