CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Troy Warren’s 25 points and 18 rebounds were not enough to overcome a first half deficit as the Catawba College men’s basketball team fall 77-75 to Queens University Wednesday night in South Atlantic Conference at Curry Arena.  Catawba falls to 9-12 on the season and 6-9 in the South Atlantic Conference.  Queens improves to 13-8 and 10-5, respectively.

Catawba struggled in the first half going into falling behind 44-33 at the half.  In the second half Catawba surged back to take the lead at 47-46 with 15:04 left in the game.  The two teams battled back and forth until 9:49 when Queens jumped out to an eight point lead until the final four minutes of the game.

With 3:33 left on the clock Warren scored back-to-back layups to cut the deficit in half.  KJ Arrington added five points of his own to give Catawba a one point lead with 1:53 left on the clock.  Queens once again responded with four points of their own to reclaim a lead that they would not relinquish over the final minutes.
