Fourth Quarter Rally Falls Short in OT at Lenoir-Rhyne, 80-79


HICKORY, NC -- The Catawba College women’s basketball team suffered a heartbreaking 80-79 loss to South Atlantic Conference foe Lenoir-Rhyne at Shuford Gymnasium Saturday afternoon. With the loss, Catawba falls to 4-8 on the season and 1-5 in the conference. Lenoir-Rhyne improves to 3-7 overall and 2-4 in the SAC.

Catawba went into the halftime break with a 34-33 advantage but a third quarter surge pushed Lenoir-Rhyne ahead to a 12 point lead going into the final quarter of play. The Catawba Lady Indians were led by five quick points from Brianna Hodges in the fourth to mount a comeback. Emma Ucinski, Bri Johnson and Serena Brown added to the charge and tied the game with 2:20 remaining. A Ucinski free throw gave the Indians the lead but a pair of Lenoir-Rhyne baskets returned the deficit back to three.

With 29 seconds remaining an exchange of basketball kept the Bears in the lead at 70-68. Catawba’s Zhaquondalee Greer responded with a layup to tie up the game which eventually led to an overtime period.

The overtime period began with each team trading baskets until the final seconds. Lenoir-Rhyne grabbed a four point advantage with 12 seconds left. With four seconds left, Ucinski nailed a three to bring the game within one. Catawba would not get another attempt for the lead.

The Lady Indians finished the night shooting 27-of-71 (38.0%) from the field and 5-for-16 from long range. Catawba was successful from the free throw line going 20-for-24. Ucinski led the Lady Indians with 14 points followed by Jada Huntley who contributed 13 points off the bench. Johnson and Brown each recorded 12 points in the game.

Jordan Hiatt led all scorers with 15 points on the night and was one of five Lenoir-Rhyne double digit point getters. Jasmine Stafford controlled the post with nine points and 11 rebounds. The Bears shot 29-for-60 (48.3%) overall and 4-for-8 from three point range. The team converted 18-of-28 from the charity stripe.

The Lady Indians will remain on the road as they travel to Queens on Wednesday for more South Atlantic Conference action. Game time is scheduled for 6:00 p.m.
