Men's Basketball Can't Overcome Quick Start From #8 Queens


CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Queens, ranked eighth in the latest NABC Division II Coaches' Poll, stayed unbeaten with a 94-79 win over visiting Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at the Levine Center.  The Royals up their record to 12-0 overall and 6-0 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 6-7 and 4-3. 

The Royals stormed out to an 18-2 lead and were never threatened.  Queens hit on six of its first seven three-point attempts and shot 60% (20-of-33) in the opening half in posting a 54-27 advantage.  Queens built its lead to 41 midway through the second half before a late Catawba run brought the Indians within 15 in the final minute.

Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg) returned after missing two games with an injury to lead Catawba with 17 points.  Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna) just missed a double-double with 12 points and nine rebounds.  Jordan Barber (Matthews, N.C./Weddington) collected 11 points, while Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.) chipped in with 10 points.
