HARROGATE, Tenn. -- Lincoln Memorial overcame a slow start and held off visiting Catawba for an 86-76 win in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Turner Arena. The Railsplitters, ranked second in NCAA II, improve to 18-0 overall and 12-0 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians fall to 7-10 and 5-7.
Luquan Choice led LMU with 20 points, hitting on 4-of-7 from long range. Lorenza Ross added 19 points and nine rebounds, while Gerel Simmons came off the bench to toss in 14. Dorian Pinson capped the double-digit scorers with 10 points and also grabbed seven rebounds.
KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh HS/Henry CC) scored a game-high 22 points for the Indians and hauled down nine rebounds. Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg HS) followed with 16 points, six rebounds and three blocks. Three others reached double figures for Catawba as Ben Sealey (Hampton, Va./Menchville HS/Va. Intermont) tossed in a dozen, Vismantas Marijosius (Kedainiai, Lithuania/North Hills) scored 11 and Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna HS) reached 10 points.
The Railsplitters scored just two points over the first six minutes as Catawba got off to an 8-2 lead. LMU roared back, going on a 17-2 run to go on top 19-10 at the 8:46 mark. The Indians stayed close, closing the margin to 26-23 on a pair of free throws by Morrison with just under four minutes before the half. LMU led 33-27 at the break.
Lincoln Memorial increased its lead midway through the second half, using a 15-4 run to go on top 63-46 with 9:31 left. The Indians pulled within nine with just over six minutes left, but quickly fell back down by 16 after seven straight by the Railsplitters, capped by a Choice three-pointer. Catawba cut the margin to seven in the final minute before LMU posted the 10-point win.
Arrington hit on 8-of-14 shots and canned four three-pointers. It marked the third time over the last four games he has missed a double-double by a single rebound.
The Railsplitters shot 51% for the game and hit on 16-of-25 (64%) in the second half. LMU converted 22-of-36 at the stripe and held a 42-39 edge on the boards. Catawba made 40% from the field and went 17-of-21 (81%) at the line.
