Rogers and Ucinski Lead Indians in Blowout Over Livingstone
SALISBURY, N.C. -- A depleted Livingstone College roster was exposed Wednesday night as the Catawba College Lady Indians defeated the Blue Bears 82-56 in non-conference action at Goodman Gym. Livingstone finished the game with only three players on the court after three others fouled out. Catawba improves to 3-4 on the year while the Blue Bears fall to 2-1.
Livingstone led only once in the game for a mere eight seconds in the second quarter after a Morgan Franklin three point shot reclaimed Catawba's lead. Despite a twenty point advantage going into the fourth quarter, the desperate Bears continued to fight for the ball leading to the eventual foul trouble. Brittney Taylor was the first to leave the game with 5:35 left in the game leaving Livingstone without subs. Toxiana Wilson committed her fifth foul with 2:25 left while Amber Curtis was put on the bench with 39 seconds left. The high pressure game was capped off with an 11-0 Catawba run over the closing minutes of play.
Terri Rogers led the way for the Lady Indians with 23 points and 12 rebounds. Senior Emma Ucinski also had a standout day with 15 points and was aided by Serena Brown who tallied 12 points. Catawba shot 28-of-71 (39.4%) from the field and 9-for-27 from the three point line. The Lady Indians added 17-of-22 from the free throw line while grabbing 52 rebounds.
Livingstone did not fare as well shooting 22-of-74 (29.7%) on the night, including 1-for-12 from behind the arc and 11-of-17 from the charity stripe. The Bears recorded 45 rebounds in the bout. Kyala Searcy was Livingstone's one bright spot on the night leading the team with 24 points and ten rebounds. Curtis was the next largest contributor with nine points.
Catawba returns to Goodman gym on Saturday as they host Tusculum in South Atlantic Conference action at 2:00 p.m.
