Sealey's Late Three-Pointer Helps Lift Men's Basketball Past Coker
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba snapped a five-game losing streak with a 71-66 win over visiting Coker in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh HS/Henry CC) scored 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds to pace the Catawba Indians, who improve to 6-8 overall and 4-5 in the SAC. The Cobras fall to 5-8 and 4-5.
In a game that saw eight ties and 15 lead changes it was a Ben Sealey (Hampton, Va./Menchville HS/Virginia Intermont) three-pointer with 1:05 remaining that put Catawba on top to stay. Sealey later sealed the game with a pair of free throws with six seconds remaining for the final margin.
The Indians had taken its largest second-half lead on a three-pointer by Arrington with 10:29 remaining at 51-46. Coker battled back to take the lead on a layup by Errick Bethel at 61-60 with 3:10 left. The Indians went up 63-60 after a bucket by Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman HS) and two free throws by Arrington with 2:09 remaining.
Alex Cohen drew the Cobras even on a three-pointer with 1:25 to go before Sealey answered. After a turnover by Coker, Catawba added two free throws from Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna HS) with 27 seconds left and another from the stripe by Taylor with 13 seconds to play for a 69-63 edge. Bethel converted three free throws with seven seconds to play, but Sealey drained two at the line to give Catawba the win.
Bethel led all scorers with 29 points for the Cobras. He went 11-of-13 at the line and had four three-pointers. Donte Samuels scored 10 points and Trey James pulled down 16 rebounds.
Arrington went 9-of-18 from the field with four three-pointers. Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg HS) also reached double figures for Catawba with 11 and also dished out three assists with four blocked shots. Sealey had eight points, all in the second half.
