Mars Hill, N.C. -- Chloe Bully’s 21 points was not enough to lift the Catawba College women’s basketball team over Mars Hill who claimed the 82-68 victory Saturday afternoon in Stanford Arena.  The loss was Catawba’s first of the year as they now stand at 3-1 overall and 1-1 in the South Atlantic Conference.  With the win the Lady Lions improve to 2-2 and 1-1 respectively. 

Mars Hill’s Cadence Wilmoth recorded a career-high on the day to lead the charge scoring 24 points and grabbing 11 rebounds.  Twelve of Wilmoth’s points came from the free-throw line where she went 12-for-12.  Camille Glymph added 22 points to the Lions effort and also had 11 rebounds. Glymph was seven-for-seven from the charity stripe.

Zhaquondalee Greer with 12 points and 11 points each from Bri Johnson and Emma Ucinski. Greer led the Indians with seven rebounds.

The Lions scored the first four points of the game before the Indians tied the contest. The teams stayed within three points of each other and had four ties before Catawba pulled ahead for a 17-15 advantage. Mars Hill would pull ahead for good on a Genice Lane layup at the midpoint of the first half. The Lions would hold on to a 33-26 halftime lead.

Mars Hill opened the second half on an 11-4 run to take a 44-30 lead with 16:43 to play. The Lions extend as far as 19 points in the second half at 58-39 with 12:38 remaining. Catawba responded late in the game with a run to bring the score back to 74-68 with 1:37 remaining.  The Lady Indians were unable to overcome the remaining deficit and Mars Hill was able to make their shots from the free throw line.

Catawba was struggled shooting from the field going only 25-of-73 (34.2%) on the night while Mars Hill shot much better at 45.8% (27-for-59).  Most of Catawba’s missed shots seemed to come from the three-point line as the Lady Indians finished the day 5-for-23. 

Mars Hill made almost twice as many free-throws as the Indians took all day. The Lions shot 26-for-32 from the charity stripe while the Indians dropped in 13-of-15.

Mars Hill also claimed a 52-36 rebounding advantage on the night.
