SALISBURY, N.C. -- Turnovers and missed shots doomed the Catawba College women’s basketball team as they fell 80-68 to Coker College in South Atlantic Conference action Wednesday night at Goodman Gymnasium. With the decision, both teams now stand 2-4 on the year. The match was the first of the year in conference play for either side.

The Lady Indians committed 13 turnovers in the losing effort while converting 24-for-66 (36.4%) from the field. Coker overcame their 19 turnovers by shooting 28-of-54 (51.9%) on the night.

The teams traded baskets over the first four minutes of play, but a Jazz Green layup with 5:35 left in the first quarter took back the lead for Coker which would not be relinquished for the remainder of the game.

Green finished the night with 15 points and five rebounds to aid the Cobra’s leading scorer, Sydney Shull, who tallied 16 points. Kiara Shoats contributed 12 points and Morgan Williams added 11 more.

On the Catawba side, the Lady Indians were led by the duo of Bri Johnson and Terri Rogers. The pair dropped 17 points each while Rogers also grabbed 11 rebounds.

Coker shot 9-for-20 from long range to add to their stellar shooting percentage while contributing 15-of-22 from the free-throw line. The team recorded 39 rebounds.

Johnson was the only Catawba player to convert a three on the night in 15 total attempts. The Lady Indians fared much better from the charity stripe, shooting 19-for-23. As a unit the team tallied 37 boards.

Catawba will return to action on Wednesday as they host crosstown rival, Livingstone at 8:00 p.m.
