12_MBB_EdwardsElonBIG

GREENEVILLE, TN -- Sophomore Elon Edwards (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) scored a career-high 35 points to help Catawba to a 106-87 win over host Tusculum in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Pioneer Arena.  The Catawba Indians snap a four-game losing streak, improving to 6-14 overall and 6-10 in the SAC.  The Pioneers fall to 3-19 and 2-14. 

Edwards hit on 14-of-18 shots, including 6-of-7 from behind the arc, to score his career-high total.  He also dished out seven assists and had a pair of steals.  Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) followed Edwards with 23 points while grabbing seven rebounds and blocking a pair of shots.

An early 9-0 run ignited Catawba.  Little had a layup and dunk and when Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, NC/Phillips Exeter) sank a three-pointer it was 11-2 four minutes into the contest.  Andrew Ingram (Bowie, MD/Archbishop Carroll HS) scored seven straight Catawba points to increase the edge to 23-8 at the 14:02 mark.  Ingrams's three-pointer gave the Tribe its largest lead of the half at 54-32 with 2:12 left before the break.

The Indians led by 18 with 12 minutes remaining before Tusculum made a rally back into the game.  The Pioneers went on a 16-5 run to cut the margin to 79-72 with 7:37 left. 

A three-pointer from Perkins helped quell the rally, while a layup by Edwards and free throws from Little kept the Indians up by 10.  When Edwards sank a three and converted a four-point play the lead was back to 17 at 93-76 with 2:59 remaining.  Edwards added two more three-pointers before the final horn as Catawba would go up by as many as 25 before the end.

Perkins and Ingram also reached double figures for Catawba.  Perkins had 15 points and five assists with Ingram adding a dozen off the bench.  The Indians shot 58% and 69% (11-of-16) from long range.  Catawba controlled the boards with a 42-29 edge.

Tusculum was led by Jalen Walker's 22 points.  Addison Flynn tallied 18 points with four assists.  BJ Fisher and Neal Spinks rounded out the double-digit scorers for TC with 12 and 10 points, respectively.  The Pioneers shot 44% for the game, but went just 5-of-20 (25%) from behind the arc.

Catawba will entertain Coker at Goodman Gym on Wednesday night with tip time around 8 p.m.
