SALISBURY, N.C. -- Three Catawba College women’s basketball players tallied double-double games to lift the Lady Indians to a 77-61 victory over the Coker Cobras in South Atlantic Conference action Wednesday evening at Goodman Gym.  With the win, Catawba improves to 8-6 on the season and 5-4 in the conference.  Coker falls to 6-9 overall and 2-7 in conference. 

Coker started the game with the initial lead over the first four minutes of the game.  With 16:12 remaining in the first half Terri Rogers converted a layup to take the first lead of the game which Catawba would never surrender the remainder of the night.  The two battled out the first half going into the break with Catawba holding a 33-31 lead.

With 15:31 left in the second half Coker’s Sydney Shull made her layup to bring the game back within two points at 41-39.  Catawba responded with an 8-0 run after the Shull basket ignited by Rogers, Bri Johnson and Zhaquondalee Greer.  The run gave Catawba the momentum to extend the game to as far as 21 points.

Rogers was the first to achieve a double-double for the Lady Indians recording 28 points to lead all scorers and grabbing 10 rebounds.  Johnson added 15 points and ten boards to the winning efforts with Serena Brown rounding out the trio of double-doubles with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

The Lady Indians held a dominating advantage on the boards 52-24 which lead to 20 second chance points for Catawba. 

On the other side of the ball Coker was led by Tanesha Stenson who recorded 19 points in the loss while adding a trio of rebounds and a pair of assists and steals. Priscilla Fenty would add 8 points over her own but both players had four fouls which limited their time on the court in the latter half of the game.

Catawba shot 46.7% from the field on the night going 28-for-60 with 3-of-15 coming from three point range.  The Lady Indians also converted 18 of their 20 free throw attempts.

For Coker, the Cobras were 26-for-66 (39.4%) from the field and 4-for-21 from long range.  Coker shot 5-for-12 from the charity stripe.

Catawba will stay home for the third straight game on Saturday as they host Mars Hill at 2:00 p.m.
