Men's Basketbll Can't Overcome Newberry's Long-Range Attack

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Visiting Newberry scored the first 10 points and never trailed in posting a 98-84 win over Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Wolves improve to 11-6 overall and 6-5 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 7-10 and 5-6. 

Mitch Riggs led six double-figure scorers for the Wolves with 19 points.  James Stepp followed with 16 points, canning 5-of-8 from behind the arc.  Xavier Holmes added a dozen with Brandon Taylor and D.J. Copeland picking up 11.  Ronell Crockett collected 10 points.

Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg) posted a double-double for Catawba with 29 points and 12 rebounds.  Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna) followed with 14 points and grabbed seven boards with Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.) scoring a dozen.

Stepp and Riggs each had three-pointers in the quick barrage which saw Catawba miss three shots and commit two turnovers.  When Brandon Taylor sank a three-pointer with 13:42 to go to make it 18-6, Newberry would lead by double figures the rest of the way.

The Wolves hit on 47% of its shots in the opening half, while Catawba struggled, making only 32%.  Catawba also had 13 of its 18 turnovers in the opening half.  Newberry grew its lead to 35 midway through the second half.

The Indians improved their shooting late and closed the gap to 14 by the final whistle.  Catawba shot nearly 60% in the second half, but could not overcome the three-point barrage by Newberry.

Catawba will hit the road for its next three games.  The first will come on Saturday as the Indians travel to Carson-Newman for a 4 pm tip-off.
