Petty's seven three-pointers paces Men's Basketball to third straight win

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. They were the only two to reach double figures for the Tribe. Newberry was led by Carter, who had 27 points, on 11-of-17 shooting, and added eight rebounds. Reggie Coleman posted a double-double with 12 points and 10 boards. #####
