Men's Basketball Downs Brevard on Brown's Three-Pointer in Final Seconds

15_MBB_BrownRakeenWING

BREVARD, N.C. -- Junior Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.) hit a three-pointer with 5.5 seconds remaining to lift visiting Catawba to a 74-71 win over Brevard in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Boshamer Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 7-7 overall and 5-3 in the SAC, while the Tornados fall to 2-11 and 1-6. 

Brown's winning basket from long distance came with the shot clock winding down and snapped a 71-all tie.  Brevard got a final shot, but Alex Moe's three-pointer rimmed out as time expired.  The Tornados had tied the game with 33 seconds left after a Catawba turnover led to a pair of free throws by Demarcus Threatt.

Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman) led Catawba, providing 18 points on 7-of-9 shooting.  Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg) posted a double-double with 13 points and 10 rebounds, while Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna) collected a dozen points.

Miles Leathers led all scorers with 20 for the host Tornados.  Threatt followed with 15, while Omar El Diraoui picked up 13 points and Stevie Williams a dozen.  Brevard shot 55% in the opening half to take a 40-33 edge, closing the frame on a 9-2 run.

Brevard led for most of the second half before Catawba used a late 8-0 run to pull even at 61 with six minute remaining.  Warren had two baskets in the run with Morrison tying the game on a driving layup.  The teams would match baskets which left the game tied at 65 before a three-pointer by Taylor put the Indians on top 68-65 with 2:41 left.

Leathers pulled the Tornados within a point and had a chance to put Brevard on top, but missed a pair of free throws.  Warren followed with a three-point play and Catawba led 71-67 at the 1:18 mark.  Leathers scored on a layup to cut the margin to 71-69 then Brevard forced a turnover that led to the tying free throws, but were denied the home win by Brown's jumper.

It marked the second time this season Brown had sank a basket in the final seconds to give Catawba a win.  His jumper with three seconds to play gave the Indians a 64-63 win over Chowan on Dec. 2.

Catawba enjoyed the better second-half shooting touch, canning 54%.  The Indians also enjoyed a 35-28 edge on the glass.

Catawba returns home on Wednesday as the Indians host Wingate at 8 pm in Goodman Gym.
