Huntley Returns With Double-Double to Lift Indians Over Anderson

14_WBB_HuntleyJadaTC

ANDERSON, S.C. -- Three Catawba College women’s basketball players scored in double figures to lift the Lady Indians to a 74-60 victory over Anderson University Saturday afternoon at the Abney Center.  Catawba improves to 6-5 on the season and 3-3 in the South Atlantic Conference.  With the loss, Anderson falls to 7-3 overall and 4-2 in the SAC.

The return of sophomore Jada Huntley was crucial for the Indians in their victory as they have now played two games in a row without their post starter, Terri Rogers.  Huntley scored 13 points in her debut, and more importantly, grabbed 17 rebounds in the process.  The sophomore also added three assists and three steals.

Also scoring in double figures were Chloe Bully and Bri Johnson who tallied 12 and 16 points, respectively.

The two teams struggled to separate over the first ten minutes of the game.  Catawba would lead as much as five points during that time but the Trojans were always able to respond.  With 10:04 left in the first half Catawba’s Janna Dixon converted a three point shot to give the Lady Indians a 16-15 lead.  Catawba would not surrender the lead for the remainder of the game. 

Catawba would extend to a lead a large as 17 points with 13:31 left in the second half but Anderson would only close the gap to as low as seven points before Catawba would stop the run.

Catawba finished the day shooting 44.6% from the field and 38.9% (7-for-18) from three point range.  Anderson shot a mere 30.6% overall and 21.1% (4-for-19) from behind the arc.

Huntley’s prowess on the boards led Catawba to a 49-35 advantage over Anderson.

Catawba hopes to use the momentum as they travel to Newberry Wednesday evening for a 6:00 p.m. tipoff.
