SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba snapped a two-game losing streak and rolled to a 75-56 victory over visiting North Greenville on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians level their mark at 6-6, while the Crusaders fall to 3-5. 

North Greenville jumped out to an 8-2 lead behind three-pointers from Troy Blyden and Miguel Cartagena.  The rest of the half was all Catawba.  The Indians used a 13-1 spurt to run out to a 24-11 lead and kept a double-digit advantage the rest of the way.

Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna) topped all scorers in the game with 15 points, while the sophomore added seven rebounds.  Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.) and Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, N.C./Phillips Exeter) each totaled 12 points.  Brown handed out five assists with Perkins canning four three-pointers in seven tries.

Cartagena was the lone player to reach double figures for North Greenville with 11 points.  Justin Dotson and Jai Jencks each knocked down eight points.

Perkins had the big shots in the spurt that gave Catawba its big lead.  He connected on three of his three-pointers in that run.  When Ben Sealey (Hampton, Va./Menchville/Virginia Intermont) nailed a three-pointer, Catawba led 37-18 with 3:36 left in the half.  The Indians went 7-of-15 from behind the arc in the opening half in building a 42-25 edge.

A 13-1 Catawba surge to begin the second half all but put the game away as the Indians led 55-26.  The Crusaders never got closer than 18 the rest of the game.

Sealey finished with nine points and hit all three of his long-range shots.  Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman) also collected nine points to go along with eight rebounds and three blocks.  Catawba finished the game 11-of-22 from three-point range.

Catawba returns to league action on Wednesday as the Indians travel to nationally-ranked Queens for an 8 pm tip-off.
