Men's Basketball Falls at Newberry

NEWBERRY, S.C. -- Newberry overcame a slow start and defeated visiting Catawba 93-81 in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Eleazer Arena.  The Wolves improve to 15-8 overall and 10-7 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 10-13 and 8-9.

In the first meeting this season, Catawba saw Newberry score the game's first 10 points and build a 26-point edge in the opening half.  In the second go round, the Indians got off quickly, leading 15-7 just over six minutes into the game.

Newberry battled back to tie the game at 21 and retook the lead at 26-24 on a three-pointer by D.J. Copeland at the 5:50 mark of the half.  The Wolves moved out to a 41-34 lead late in the half before Catawba closed within 41-40 on a layup by Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg). Brandon Taylor gave Newberry a 44-40 edge at the break on a three-pointer with six seconds left.

Newberry started the second half with a 9-4 run to edge out to a 53-44 advantage and eventually went up by double digits after a basket by Mitch Riggs with 14:37 to go.  That came during a 10-0 run that Riggs capped with a pair of free throws to give the hosts a 67-51 lead with 13:29 left.  Newberry kept the double figure lead the rest of the way.

Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna) led four Catawba players in double figures with 22 points on 10-of-20 shooting.  Reggie Perkins (Greensboro, N.C./Exeter) added 13, Andrew Ingram (Bowie, Md./Archbishop Carroll) 12 and Morrison 10. 

The Indians shot 41%, but were just 6-of-26 (23%) from behind the arc and were outscored 22-9 at the line.  Newberry shot 45% and held a 47-36 edge on the glass.

Xavier Holmes led Newberry with 14 points, while Riggs, Copeland and James Stepp each scored 13.  Brandon Taylor chipped in with a dozen.

Catawba finishes off a three-game road stretch on Saturday as the Indians travel to Anderson for a 4 pm tip.
