14_MBB_ArringtonKijuanTC

CHARLOTTE, NC -- Host Queens rallied from a six-point halftime deficit to take a 70-60 win over Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Curry Arena.  The Royals improve to 13-12 overall and 11-10 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 7-18 and 7-14. 

Kijuan Arrington (Newport News, VA/Denbigh HS/Henry CC) led Catawba with 19 points, hitting on 7-of-13 shots.  Tyrece Little (Greenville, NC/Rose HS) had another solid game before fouling out, scoring 17 points, grabbing five rebounds, recording three steals and blocking a pair of shots.

Queens was led by Josh Clyburn, who posted a double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds.  He added five blocked shots.  Nkosi Ali scored a dozen points off the bench, while Brent Evans and Joby Glymph both tallied 11 points.

A three-pointer from Arrington and two from Chris Watson (Reidsville, NC/Reidsville HS/Rockingham CC) helped Catawba jump out to a 15-8 lead after six minutes.  The Royals went on a 9-0 run to go on top, but three-pointers from Andrew Ingram (Bowie, MD/Archbishop Carroll HS) and Arrington put the Indians back out front.

Catawba would eventually lead by eight late in the half before settling for a 30-24 edge at the break.  Queens erased the deficit in the opening four minutes of the second half, going on a 14-2 run to start the half.  Clyburn and Glymph each had five points in the surge.

The Indians found themselves down by 13 with 11 minutes left and were still trailing by 10 at the six minute mark before making a late run.  Two three-pointers from Arrington and a jumper by Julian Sampah (Greensboro, NC/Greensboro Day) cut the Queens lead to 61-57 with 3:09 remaining. 

Catawba had a chance to get even closer in the final two minutes.  Arrington, who had hit four three-pointers, missed from long range down 63-59 and the Royals went 7-of-8 at the line over the final 1:13 to ice the game.

The Indians shot 33% for the game, going 6-of-24 (25%) from behind the arc.  Catawba committed just eight turnovers, but were outrebounded 49-41 and were just 8-of-13 at the line.

Catawba closes out its season on Saturday with a trip to Lincoln Memorial to face the 13th-ranked Railsplitters at 8 p.m.
