15_MBB_BrownRakeenWING

MURFREESBORO, N.C. -- Catawba rallied from an eight-point deficit in the final 10 minutes to post a 74-69 win over host Chowan in men's basketball action on Wednesday night at the Helms Center.  The Catawba Indians even their record at 3-3, while the Hawks fall to 4-2.

Catawba's Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel HS/Delaware St.) tallied 21 points with Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg HS) adding another 20 in the win.  KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh HS/Henry CC) also reached double digits with 13 points with Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna HS) grabbing 10 rebounds.

Chowan led 54-46 after a bucket by Warren Powers with 10:35 left.  The Indians then reeled off 14 straight points over the next five minutes to go on top.  Morrison led the charge with seven straight points to pull Catawba to within 54-53. 

Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman HS) tied the game as he hit converted the second of two free throws with 7:18 remaining.  Morrison drilled a three-pointer at the 6:35 mark to put the Indians up for good and Brown capped the surge on his three-pointer at the 5:23 mark.

The Hawks could not close the gap as Catawba did enough at the line, going 7-of-12 over the final 1:08, to stay in front.  The Indians led by nine twice in the final minute.

Down four early, Chowan used a 13-0 run of its own to lead 17-8 just a little over seven minutes into the game.  Catawba cut into the deficit on three-pointers by Ben Sealey (Hampton, Va./Menchville HS/Virginia Intermont) and Brown to make it 23-22 at the 8:03 mark of the half.  The Hawks led 35-33 at the break.

Kyree Bethel and Michael Adams each scored 11 points to pace Chowan.  Powers picked up 10 points. 

Chowan hit on 52% of its shots in the opening half while the Indians made only 31%.  The fortunes were nearly reversed in the second half as Catawba canned 45% to just 32% for the Hawks.  The Indians led 45-41 on the boards, including a 14-9 margin on the offensive end.  Catawba also had just eight turnovers, six fewer than the Hawks.

Catawba returns to league play on Saturday as the Indians host Carson-Newman in Goodman Gym at 4 p.m.  The tip will follow women's action between the schools that starts at 2 p.m.
