12_WBB_BullyChloeBIG2

CHARLOTTE, NC – Catawba held its opponent to less than 50 points for the third time in four games in posting a key 56-46 win over host Queens in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Curry Arena.  The Catawba Indians improve to 14-11 overall and 12-9 in the SAC, taking over sole possession of fourth place in the league.  The Royals fall to 6-19 and 5-16. 

Senior Antoinette McPhail (Timmonsville, SC/Darlington HS/Paine) inched closer to her 1,000th collegiate point, leading Catawba with 16 points and eight rebounds.  She also had two steals and blocked two shots.  Chloe Bully (Hannut, BELGIUM/KOL Landen) added 15 points.

Shonice Pettaway scored a game-high 20 points for Queens and pulled down nine rebounds.  McKell Oliverio scored 11 points off the bench for the Royals.

McPhail hit a layup and Bully a three-pointer to start the game and Catawba never trailed.  When Jada Huntley (Indian Trail, NC/Porter Ridge HS) completed a three-point play, the Lady Indians were up double digits at 18-8 midway through the opening half.

Catawba led 26-17 at the break, holding Queens to 25% shooting.  Bully had 10 of her points in the first half.

McPhail had two layups and Huntley a three-pointer in a 7-0 run early in the second half to put Catawba up 33-21.  Bully's layup with 15:29 to go gave the Lady Indians their largest lead at 37-24.  Queens cut the margin to 50-43 with 4:26 remaining, but Mallary Clay (Lansing, NC/Ashe Co. HS) hit back-to-back baskets for Catawba to end any ideas of a Queens comeback.

Queens upped its shooting to 55% in the second half, but could not overcome 15 turnovers, nine of which came after the break.  Catawba committed only eight turnovers, four in each half.

Catawba will finish off the regular season on Saturday with a 6 p.m. game at Lincoln Memorial.  A win will insure the Lady Indians of a first round home game for the SAC Tournament.  A loss will put it in the hands of a tiebreaker.
