SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba came up just short of an upset of NCAA II third-ranked Lincoln Memorial, falling 60-57 in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Railsplitters improve to 27-1 overall and 21-1 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 14-14 and 11-11.

Catawba had a chance to tie in the final seconds, but Jerrin Morrison’s (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg HS) three-pointer was off the mark.  Catawba got the rebound off the miss, but a shot in the lane at the buzzer also missed.

The Indians trailed by seven with a minute and half to play before rallying.  Morrison completed a three-point play with 1:25 to go to make it 56-52.  After a layup by Gerel Simmons, KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh HS/Henry CC) hit two free throws to make it 58-54 with 1:05 to go.

Lincoln Memorial missed a shot with 30 seconds to go and Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna HS) closed the gap to 58-57 as he converted a three-point play with 23 seconds remaining.  Simmons upped the margin back to three on a pair of free throws with 13 ticks on the clock to set up the final sequence.

Keenan Peterson led LMU as he posted a double-double with 17 points and 16 rebounds.  Curtis McMillion added 11 points.  Morrison led Catawba with a dozen points.  Arrington added 11 and Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman HS) tossed in 10 points.

Both teams shot just under 35% with LMU holding a 51-39 edge on the glass.  The Railsplitters outscored Catawba 17-8 in second-chance points.

Catawba will by the sixth-seed for the upcoming SAC Tournament on Wednesday.  The Indians will travel to Newberry for an 8 pm tip in hopes of avenging two regular-season loses to the Wolves.  LMU is the top seed in the tournament and will host Brevard on Wednesday at 7 pm.
