Men's Basketball knocks off SAC co-leading Carson-Newman

SALISBURY, SC – Catawba knocked off league co-leader Carson-Newman 86-83 in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym. The result helped force a three-way tie at the top of the SAC standings with Carson-Newman, Wingate and Lenoir-Rhyne. The Indians improve to 11-16 overall and 6-8 in the SAC with the win, while the Eagles fall to 19-8 and 10-4. Catawba travels to Lenoir-Rhyne on Wednesday for its first round tournament game, while the Eagle will host a game on Wednesday, but will have to wait on a coin flip with Wingate to decide the top seed. Catawba jumped out to a big lead in the opening 10 minutes, gaining a 24-9 edge at the 10:02 mark. Down 16-11, the Eagles whittled the lead to a single point at 39-38, but could not take a lead in the opening half. Catawba would go back up by 10 points at 52-42 with 18:04 remaining, but Carson-Newman reeled off 12 straight points to take a 54-52 lead following a three-pointer by Braun Dabbs (Greeneville, TN) with 15:38 left. The Indians tied the score on a jumper by Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA), then regained the lead on a layup by Kevin Petty (Sanford, NC). The teams traded baskets until Carson-Newman’s Ishmail Simmons (Atlanta, GA) converted one of two free throws to leave the Indians up 62-61 with 11:33 remaining. A three-point play by Catawba’s Chris Everett (Charlotte, NC) gave Catawba a 65-61 lead. A three-pointer by Kyle Grobble (Sparta, TN) and a layup by Larry Coleman (Memphis, TN) brought the Eagles within 67-66 with 9:11 left, but a free throw and a layup by Phipps gave the Tribe a 70-66 edge at the eight minute mark. A basket by Todd Lucas (Eustis, FL) cut the Eagle deficit to 7068, but Brian Carter (Alexandria, VA) added four free throws and Phipps two to give Catawba a 76-68 edge with 5:06 remaining. A three-pointer by Dabbs brought the Eagles within 80-75 with 2:25 remaining, then both teams went cold until Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, NC) made a pair of free throws with 27 seconds left for an 82-75 Catawba lead. The Indians made its last 13 free throws, including four in the final 13 seconds to hold off the Eagles. Free throws were a key in the win as Catawba made 18-of-22 in the second half, while the Eagles converted just 6-of-14 tries. The Indians hit 50% from the field, while Carson-Newman made 42.6%. The Eagles did hold a 43-36 edge on the boards, including grabbing 17 off the offensive glass. Phipps paced Catawba with 26 points, while Carter added 20 points and eight rebounds. Dabbs led the Eagles with 24 points, while Gribble added 15 and Lucas a dozen. Catawba’s Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) had his consecutive made free throw streak snapped a 44 in a row with a miss in the second half. #####
