Men's Basketball falls to PC at the buzzer

SALISBURY, SC – Chuck Rayford (Greenville, SC) hit a jumper in the lane as time expired to lift Presbyterian to a 77-75 win over host Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. The win improves the Blue Hose to 22-7 overall and 8-5 in the SAC, while Catawba falls to 10-16 and 5-8. Presbyterian had rallied late in the opening half to take a 35-41 lead at the break. The Blue Hose built a seven-point lead early in the final half, before Catawba rallied back to take a 48-47 lead on a three-point play by Brian Carter (Alexandria, VA) with 14:22 remaining. Presbyterian would gain the lead back on a three-pointer by Rayford and pulled out to a 59-53 advantage with 10:56 left. Catawba would again rally back, scoring seven straight points to lead 60-59 following a layup by Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) at the 8:45 mark. A three-pointer by Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC) would extend the Tribe’s lead to 68-62 with 5:21 left, but the Blue Hose went on an 8-2 run to tie the score at 70-70 on a three-point play by Michael Drum (Rural Hall, NC). The Blue Hose would lead 75-70 with 46 seconds remaining, but a three-pointer by Magnusson cut the deficit to 75-73 with 39 seconds to go. Presbyterian missed a pair of free throws and Carter tied the game with two free throws with 6.9 seconds left setting the stage for Rayford’s buzzer-beater. Drum led five double figure scorers for Presbyterian with 14. Rayford added 13 points and dished out seven assists, while Johann Collins (Raliegh, NC) tallied a career-high 13 points off the bench. Andrew Dellinger (Mauertown, VA) also hit for 13 points, all coming in the first half. Catawba was led by Carter, who scored 30 points on 8-of-14 shooting and connected on 14-of-17 at the line. Magnusson followed with 20, including four free throws to extend his record streak to 44 in a row. He also added nine rebounds. #####
