Huntley's Career-High 31 Not Enough As Women's Basketball Falls At Brevard
BREVARD, N.C. -- Catawba overcame an early 18-4 deficit, but fell in the end to host Brevard 80-75 in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Boshamer Gym. The Tornadoes improve to 8-15 overall and 6-13 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians squandered a career-high 31 point effort from Jada Huntley (Indian Trail, N.C./Porter Ridge HS) and fall to 15-10 and 12-8.
Huntley connected on 13-of-20 shots and hit all five of her free throw attempts in posting her best scoring game. She added 11 rebounds to complete a double-double. Bri Johnson (Statesville, N.C./N. Iredell HS/Belmont Abbey) also reached double figures with 17 points.
Brevard was led by the trio of Katie Williams, Madison Lenox and Hadara Bannister, who combined to hit on nine of the 10 three-pointers by the Tornados. Williams had 19 points and nine rebounds with Lenox adding 18 points and Bannister 17. Bannister canned 5-of-7 from long range and Williams hit on 3-of-5.
Catawba trailed 18-4 eight minutes into the game before rallying back. The Lady Indians scored the next 13 points and finished off a 24-3 run on basket by Terri Rogers (Burlington, N.C./E. Alamance HS) for a 28-21 lead with just over four minutes left in the half. Brevard would lead 35-34 at the break.
The Tornados led by as many as eight in the second half before Catawba retook the lead on a jumper from Huntley with 7:38 remaining. A three-point play from Huntley gave the Lady Indians a 65-61 edge with 4:45 left.
Brevard answered as Williams canned a three-pointer and Shelby Wolfe followed a Catawba turnover with a jumper and a 66-65 edge. Huntley gave Catawba one last lead before Wolfe put the Tornados up for good with two free throws at the 2:31 mark. Williams made it 76-71 on a three-pointer and Brevard canned 4of-5 at the line in the final 30 seconds to secure the win.
Both teams shot well with Catawba hitting on 46% and Brevard 48%. The Tornados went 10-of-20 (50%) behind the arc. The Lady Indians held a 43-29 edge on the boards, but had 18 turnovers, twice as many as Brevard, with 10 of those coming in the early minutes in falling behind.
Catawba plays host to Queens on Wednesday for a at 6 pm tip-off.
