Defense Paves Way as Women's Basketball Gets Past Brevard 47-44

SALISBURY, NC – Catawba gutted out a 47-44 win over visiting Brevard in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians move back into a tie for fourth place in the SAC, improving to 13-11 overall and 11-9 in the league.  The Tornados fall to 7-17 and 6-14. 

Chloe Bully (Hannut, BELGIUM/KOL Landen) scored 15 points to pace the Lady Indians.  Senior Antoinette McPhail (Timmonsville, SC/Darlington HS/Paine) collected a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds.  Madison Lenox led Brevard with 22 points on 10-of-15 shooting.

The biggest lead for either team in the opening half was three points and that came after Catawba senior Jelena Ciric (Belgrade, SERBIA/Carlisle,VA HS/Miami-Dade CC) hit a three-pointer on the first shot of the game.  That would be one of the few shots from long range the Lady Indians would make, finishing 3-of-27 (11%) from behind the arc.

The Tornados led 20-18 at the break, shooting 33% from the field.  Catawba connected on just 24%.

Brevard hit on a pair of three-pointers early in the second half to try and moved out to a 28-22 lead.  McPhail kept Catawba close, scoring eight straight points for the Lady Indians to get the hosts to within 28-26.  Lenox scored five straight for Brevard, capping it with a three-pointer play that put the Tornados up 37-28 with 11:13 remaining.

Bully scored the next nine points for Catawba as the Lady Indians closed the gap to 39-37 with 7:36 left.  The final points in the run came on a three-pointer that ended a stretch of 18 straight Catawba misses from behind the arc.

Mallary Clay (Lansing, NC/Ashe Co. HS) connected on a three-pointer with 5:04 left to keep Catawba within two at 42-40 and her free throws with 3:31 remaining pulled the Lady Indians even at 44-all.  Jada Huntley (Indian Trail, NC/Porter Ridge HS) followed her own miss with 2:48 to go to give Catawba its first lead of the second half.  Huntley added a free throw with 1:22 remaining and Brevard suffered a turnover and a missed three-pointer in the final seconds on its last two possessions.

Catawba improved its shooting to 44% in the second half and finished at 33% for the game.  Brevard shot 36% on the day and were 2-of-14 from three-point range.  The Lady Indians held a decided edge on the glass, 44-31, including a 20-10 margin in the final half.

Catawba hits the road for its final
