Women's Basketball Announces Challenging 2014-15 Schedule
The Catawba College women’s basketball schedule for the 2014-15 season has been finalized. Highlighting the schedule are three exhibition games against NCAA I teams as well as a regular season meeting at Appalachian State.
Catawba will tune up for the season with exhibition games against Davidson, Elon and Charlotte. The first contest will be against Davidson on Oct. 30. The Lady Indians will then face Elon on Nov. 2 and Charlotte on Nov. 5.
“This will be one of our most challenging schedules since I’ve been coaching at Catawba,” stated Head Coach Angie Morton. “We start out with three DI exhibition games and a conference challenge with two of the top contenders in the Carolinas Conference. We end up our nonconference schedule with Division I Appalachian State. I am very interested to see how our young team will respond to this demanding schedule and hope it gives us the confidence that we need for South Atlantic Conference play.”
The opening game for Catawba will be in the Queens Tournament on Friday, Nov. 14 against Mount Olive. The Lady Indians will also play Barton in the tournament. Other non-conference games for Catawba will be against Pfeiffer, Livingstone and Appalachian State.
Catawba’s home opener will also be its South Atlantic Conference opener which will bring Wingate to town on Nov. 19. The final game before the holiday break will be at Tusculum on Dec. 15 with the Lady Indians returning for a Dec. 30 match-up with Appalachian State.
This will be the first meeting with ASU since the 1984-85 season. The teams have met five times with Catawba winning only once, 76-75 on Feb. 9, 1984. The last regular season for Catawba against a NCAA II opponent came at Winthrop on Nov. 30, 1999 with the Lady Indians claiming a 60-54 win.
Catawba closes the regular season at home against Lincoln Memorial on Feb. 28. The first round of the SAC Tournament is set to begin on Mar. 4 with the semifinals and finals taking place at Furman University in Greenville, S.C.
