Taylor Nets Career-High 29 as Men's Basketball Knocks Off LR
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba led wire-to-wire and outscored visiting Lenoir-Rhyne 105-98 in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. The Catawba Indians improve to 10-11 overall and 8-7 in the SAC. The Bears, ranked seventh in the D2SIDA Southeast Region poll, fall to 12-7 and 7-7.
Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna) scored a career-high 29 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for his second double-double of the season to pace Catawba's five double figure scorers. Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg) followed with 17 points and while Andrew Ingram (Bowie, Md./Archbishop Carroll) added a dozen. Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.) and Vismantas Marijosius (Kedainiai, Lithuania/North Hills) each tallied 11 points.
Keenan Palmore led all scorers in a losing effort for Lenoir-Rhyne with 33 points. Will Perry added 27 points and canned seven three-pointers.
The Indians built a 10-point lead midway through the first half and led 40-35 at the break. The second half saw each team shoot over 60% and score over 60 points.
A three-pointer by Reed Lucas early in the second half brought the Bears within 42-40 before a three-pointer play from Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman) pushed the Catawba lead back to five. The Indians would eventually get back it a 10-point lead at 58-48 with 14:36 remaining.
Palmore reeled off eight straight LR points and rallied the Bears within two at 65-63. Perry had a shot to give LR the lead, but missed on a three-pointer. Catawba pushed the lead quickly back to seven after a three-pointer by Marijosius and two free throws from Taylor.
The Bears pulled within 92-90 with 2:31 remaining before Morrison hit a key three-pointer from the wing and Taylor canned two more free throws to push the edge to 97-90. Catawba iced the game at the line, making 10-of-14 in the final 1:34 and going 28-of-36 for the game.
Catawba outscored LR 65-63 in the second half, shooting 61% (19-of-31), including 5-of-7 from behind the arc. The Bears shot 66% (23-of-35) in the final half and were 7-of-15 from long range.
Catawba returns to action on Saturday, traveling to Carson-Newman for a 4 pm tip-off.
