Huntley Sparks Women's Basketball To SAC Tourney Win

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba advanced to the semifinals of the South Atlantic Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament with a 79-52 win over visiting Carson-Newman on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  Jada Huntley (Indian Trail, N.C./Porter Ridge HS) equaled a career-high with 31 points to help the Catawba Indians improve to 18-10.  The Lady Eagles fall to 19-10.

Carson-Newman started the game with a 2-0 lead after Taylor Peterson made two free throws as Catawba was issued a technical foul for having only one working shot clock.  Those two points didn’t matter in the outcome as the Lady Indians raced to an 18-6 lead after eight minutes.

It was 41-21 by the half as Huntley nearly outscored the whole Carson-Newman team with 20 points of her own.  Catawba hit on 50% of its first-half shots, while the Lady Eagles made just 24% and committed 10 turnovers.

The Lady Eagles pulled within 12 several times in the first 10 minutes of the second half as Catawba’s shooting dropped off.  Bri Johnson (Statesville, N.C./N. Iredell HS/Belmont Abbey) hit a key three-pointer with 9:45 to play that ignited an 18-0 run that ended all doubt.  Catawba went on to lead by as many as 34 in the final five minutes. 

Huntley collected a double-double adding 14 rebounds in the win.  She hit on 14-of-28 shots and also recorded four steals.  Johnson and Zhaquondalee Greer (Greensboro, N.C./Academy at Smith/Charleston So.) each had 13 points.  Chloe Bully (Hannut, Belgium/KOL Landen) handed out a career-high nine assists.

Tatum Burstrom led Carson-Newman with 17 points.  Kailyn Brook scored 12 points, going 8-for-8 at the line.  Peterson finished with 11 points and Jessica Simerly grabbed a dozen rebounds.

Catawba will next face top-seeded Anderson at Timmons Arena on the campus of Furman University in Greenville, S.C.  That semifinal is set for a noon tip-off on Saturday.
