DAVIDSON, N.C. – The Catawba College women’s basketball team opened up its season Thursday night with an 85-51 loss in exhibition play with Davidson at John M. Belk Arena.  The Catawba Lady Indians struggled to overcome a poor shooting percentage and the overall size of the Davidson women.

Catawba went into the half down 45-28 to the Wildcats after shooting just 17.6% from the field that included going 2-for-16 from behind the arc.  Davidson, on the other hand, managed to shoot 42.1% in the half.

The Lady Indians finished the game shooting 15-for-70 for a 21.4% shooting.  Chloe Bully accounted for 15 of Catawba’s points and was aided with ten points and six rebounds by redshirt freshman, Terri Rogers.  Bully and Rogers were the only two Catawba players to reach double-digit scoring totals.

Davidson had four players reach double-digit figures led by Lillian McCabe who scored 17 points.  Dakota Dukes and McKenzie Latt both recorded a double double on the night.  Dukes tallied 15 points and 11 rebounds while Latt had ten points and ten rebounds.

Size also played a factor in tonight’s game and the rebounding totals.  Davidson held a 64-41 rebounding edge and put in 18 second chance points in the process.  A highlight for the Lady Indians came in the turnover category.  Catawba forced Davidson into 19 turnovers while only committing 13 of their own.

Catawba will travel to Elon Sunday evening for another exhibition game.  Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
