SALISBURY, N.C. -- Lincoln Memorial, ranked 16th in the NABC poll, grabbed an 82-64 win over host Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Railsplitters improve to 14-2 overall and 10-0 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 7-9 and 5-5. 

Gerel Simmons led LMU with 21 points, while Luquon Choice knocked down 19 points, including four three-pointers.  Jalen Steele came off the bench to add 13 points and seven rebounds with Curtis McMillion scoring 10 points and blocking three shots.

Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna) was the only Catawba Indian to reach double figures as he tallied 17 points and grabbed eight rebounds.  Andrew Ingram (Bowie, Md./Archbishop Carroll) scored nine points with eight rebounds. 

Lincoln Memorial didn't trail after Steele connected on a three-pointer to put the Railsplitters up 3-2 at the 19:06 mark.  The game stayed close much of the first half with Catawba pulling within 23-18 on a layup from Ingram with 4:37 left before the break.  LMU controlled the final four minutes, going on a 16-4 run to end the half and balloon their lead to 39-22.

A three-pointer from Choice pushed the LMU edge to 42-23 early in the second half, but Catawba fought back.  Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.) had a three-pointer and Jeremy McLaughlin (Greenville, S.C./Mauldin) scored twice inside as the Indians went on a 11-2 run to trim the deficit to 44-34 with 16:21 left.

Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg) got Catawba as close as nine at 55-46 with 11:54 to play before Choice had a three-pointer and a layup during an 8-0 run.  LMU extended the lead to 20 with 6:49 to go before one last push by Catawba got the Indians within 11 with just over a minute to play.

LMU had a big edge at the line as the Railsplitters canned 21-of-26 (81%), while Catawba connected on just 9-of-15 (60%) at the stripe.  The Indians shot just 38% from the field and hit on just 29% in the first half.

Catawba finishes a three-game home stand on Wednesday as the Indians host Newberry at 8 pm.
