Poor Shooting Ends Catawba's Chance to Upset #17 Anderson
SALISBURY, NC -- Poor shooting led to the demise of the Catawba College basketball team as the Lady Indians fell 64-36 to Anderson University in South Atlantic Conference action Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym. A mere three points in the fourth quarter helped drop Catawba to 4-7 on the year and 1-4 in the conference. The 17th ranked Anderson Trojans improve to 8-0 overall and 6-0 in the SAC.
Anderson never trailed in the game after a Heather Jankowy three pointer opened the game for the Trojans. The first quarter closed with a run by Anderson to give the Trojans a 21-9 advantage.
In the fourth quarter, Catawba’s lone points came with from a three point shot from senior Janna Dixon with 26 seconds remaining in play.
Anderson was led by Jennifer Monroe who scored 21 points and added 16 rebounds to her team’s efforts. As a whole the Trojans went 26-for-55 (47.3%) from the field and 3-for-16 from the three-point line. Anderson also converted 9-of-13 attempts from the free-throw line. Monroe’s success on the boards helped Anderson tally 43 rebounds on the night.
