15_MBB_TaylorJameelRAD2

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Queens, ranked sixth in NCAA II, used a 27-7 run during the final 10 minutes to put away host Catawba and post a 95-77 win in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym.  The Royals improve to 23-2 overall and 17-2 in the SAC.  The Catawba Indians fall to 10-15 and 8-11.

Rob Lewis and Marquis Rankin each scored 24 points to pace the Royals.  Todd Withers added 18 points and seven rebounds.  Catawba was led by Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna), who scored 13 points, and Jeremy McLaughlin (Greenville, S.C./Mauldin), who posted a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Queens built a double-digit margin midway through the first half and led 45-28 at the break.  Catawba had trimmed a 14-point deficit to eight at 33-25 before the Royals closed the half on a 12-3 run.  The Indians shot just 26% (8-of-31) in the first half, while Queens canned nearly 52% (16-of-31).

The Royals shot even better in the second half, making 18-of-30 (60%) of their attempts.  Down 19 after the opening seconds of the final half, Catawba used a 14-5 run to close the gap to 52-42 with 15:05 to play. 

Queens led 66-54 with 10:26 left when Jared Hendryx hit two free throws, Rankin sank a three-pointer and Withers converted a layup to help the Royals spurt out to a 73-54 edge.  Rakeen Brown (Newport News, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.) made a free throw for Catawba before Queens put the game away with a 11-0 run that pushed the margin to 84-55 with 5:33 left.

Catawba held a 43-36 edge on the boards and had one less turnover than the Royals, but couldn’t overcome 37% shooting.  Queens connected on 56% for the game.

Catawba plays its final home game of the season on Saturday as the Indians host Brevard at 4 pm.
