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.
Catawba was led by the duo of Terri Rogers and Bri Johnson, who each recorded eight points in the game. Rogers led the way for the Lady Indians in rebounding with 14. The Lady Indians managed 37 rebounds as a whole which did not help with the poor shooting. Catawba shot just 12-of-62 (19.4%) overall with 4-of-13 coming from long range. The team was perfect from the charity stripe converting all eight attempts.
Catawba will look to rebound after the holiday break when the Lady Indians resume conference play at Lenoir-Rhyne on January 2. Tipoff is set for 2:00 p.m.
