ANDERSON, S.C. -- Turnovers proved costly Saturday afternoon as the Catawba College women's basketball team fell 89-84 to South Atlantic Conference leader, Anderson University at the Abney Center. The slugfest came down to the wire as the Anderson Trojans could only pull away as much as seven points all game. The bout ended with 14 ties and an equal amount of lead changes. The top ranked Trojans improve to 17-4 on the season and 15-3 within the conference. The Catawba Lady Indians drop to 13-11 overall and 10-8 in the SAC.

With 3:22 left in the game Catawba's Terri Rogers nailed a pair of free throws to tie and then take the lead for the Indians at 78-77. A pair of turnovers and fouls for Catawba gave Newberry the spark they needed to close out the game. Despite a pair of free-throws, Catawba would close out the final two minutes of play without a field goal until a buzzer beater by Rogers. Anderson closed the game going 6-for-8 from the free throw line after Catawba was called for 11 fourth quarter fouls. The Trojans were cited for seven violations of their own in the period.

Bri Johnson led the Indians in scoring with 24 points before fouling out at 1:35 to go on a loose ball call with the score standing at 83-80. Rogers finished her night with 17 points and four rebounds with Emma Ucinski also reaching double figures at 12 points. Jada Huntley, one of Catawba's top scorer's during the second half of the season, was plagued with foul trouble and scored just two points in her 19 minutes of play. Alexis Newbold earned  her second start of the season and earned six points before fouling out with 3:43 left in the game.

The Indians shot 27-for-60 (45.0%) from the field and an impressive 8-for-16 from deep. Catawba continued their strong season from the free-throw line by converting 22 of their 25 attempts. The Lady Indians out rebounded Anderson 36-31 on the night.

The Trojans were led by Nakia Young who dropped in 26 points and six rebounds. Heather Jankowy added 15 points and seven assists on the way to the win.

Anderson shot 28-of-58 (48.3%) overall and 7-for-24 from deep. The Trojans took 35 shots from the charity stripe and converted on 26 of them.

Catawba will finally return home on Wednesday as they host Queens University at 6:00 p.m.
