HARTSVILLE, S.C. -- Catawba won on the road for the first time since mid-December by taking a 65-61 victory over Coker in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at the DeLoach Center.  The win improves the Catawba Indians to 11-12 overall and 8-9 in the SAC and gives the Indians two wins and an important tiebreaker over the Cobras.  Coker falls to 9-12 and 8-9.

Catawba got 14 points from Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, N.C./Phillips Exeter) and a double-double of 10 points and 10 rebounds from Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman HS) in snapping its eight-game road losing streak.  Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna HS) and Ben Sealey (Hampton, Va./Menchville HS/Virginia Intermont) also posted 10 points for the Indians.

The Indians fell down by 12 in the opening minutes of the second half, but used a three-point play from Vismantas Marijosius (Kedainiai, Lithuania/North Hills (NC) HS) and a layup by Warren to pull within 43-39 with 13:30 left.  Another layup by Warren cut the margin to a bucket.  Following a steal from Taylor, Andrew Ingram (Bowie, Md./Archbishop Carroll HS) buried a three to put Catawba up 46-45 midway through the half.

Morrison capped a 14-2 run on a free throw to give Catawba a 49-45 lead with 8:09 to play.  Coker would battle back to take a pair of one-point leads, but Perkins hit a layup and a three-pointer on consecutive Catawba possessions to put the Indians on top 58-54 at the 2:11 mark.

Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg HS) and Perkins hit jumpers after a three-pointer from Coker's Aubrey Daniel to keep the Indians ahead by three in the closing minutes.  After a Cobra turnover with 35 seconds to go, Taylor sank two free throws then Sealey capped the scoring with one from the line with 19 seconds left.

Donte Samuels notched a double-double for Coker with 15 points and 10 rebounds.  Errick Bethel, the league's leading scorer, was held to nine points on 3-of-13 shooting.

Catawba shot just 31%, but cashed in 21 offensive rebounds for 17 points.  The Indians also committed just seven turnovers.  Coker managed to shoot 37% and got five blocks from Tim Buchikos.

Catawba hosts Anderson in another key league contest on Saturday at 4 p.m.
