NEWBERRY, SC Senior guard Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC) scored 28 points to lead visiting Catawba to an 80-74 win over Newberry in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Saturday night at Eleazer Gym. The win is a season-long third straight for Catawba, which improves to 10-15 overall and 5-7 in the SAC. Newberry falls to 4-20 and 1-11. Petty, who had scored only eight points over the last three games, erupted for 19 in the opening half on Saturday. He connected on five of his seven three-pointers in the opening frame. Catawba fell behind quickly 7-0 in the opening two minutes, but later used a 10-2 run to take a 12-11 lead on a pair of free throws by Petty at the 14:43 mark. Down 20-14, Petty connected on five straight triples to give the Tribe a 29-25 lead with 6:44 in the half. Petty gave Catawba a 33-25 lead on a pair of free throws with 5:17 to go, but Newberry rallied to within 40-37 at the break. Catawba would never trail in the final half. Petty hit a pair of three-pointers in the opening two minutes of the half, as the Tribe built a 50-39 lead. Brian Carter (Alexandria, VA) then scored nine straight points for Catawba to keep the Indians on top at 59-49. After falling down by 74-57 with 5:18 left, Newberry put on a fierce rally and cut the margin to 74-71 on a basket by Rashaad Carter with 1:08 to play. Carter got a key offensive rebound for Catawba with 29 seconds left and hit a pair of free throws for a 76-71 lead. Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) made a steal and layin for a 78-71 lead before a three-pointer by Elijah Frasier with 26 seconds remaining cut the lead to 78-74. Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) made two free throws with eight seconds left, extending his record streak to 40 in a row, and giving Catawba its 80-74 advantage. Catawba dominated from the line, making 26-of-35, including a perfect 10-for-10 by Carter. Newberry was just 11-of-16 at the stripe. Newberry shot 54.5% and held a 35-29 edge on the boards, but had 19 turnovers to just 11 for Catawba. Carter followed Petty with 24 points for Catawba.
