Johnson and Huntley Lead Indians to 73-58 Win Over Queens
SALISBURY, N.C. -- The Catawba College women's basketball team pulled out a convincing 73-58 victory over Queens University in South Atlantic Conference action Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. The win lifts Catawba to 14-11 on the season and 11-8 in the conference. The Queens' Royals fall to 4-20 overall and 2-17 in the SAC.
With the exception of Jada Huntley, Catawba struggled in the first half, only pulling out a 30-28 lead by the break. Huntley gave the Catawba Lady Indians the lead by scoring 14 points and grabbing five rebounds. Bri Johnson added nine points in the first half to help carry their teammates.
The Lady Indians controlled the momentum in the third quarter after Alexis Newbold quickly pushed the lead to nine. Despite the attempts of Queens' Sheridan Pressley, Newbold and the rest of the Indians ended the third quarter holding onto a 59-46 lead.
Huntley opened the fourth quarter where she left off as two baskets gave Catawba their largest lead of the night at 17 with 8:03 to go. The Royals managed to bring the game back to a ten point deficit before both teams went into a 2:07 drought. Queens never gained enough momentum to really challenge to the lead.
Johnson's consistent play throughout the game resulted in a 20 point night to go along with her seven boards. Huntley contributed 19 points and eight rebounds with Newbold adding 12 points and six rebounds.
Catawba finished the game shooting 30-for-55 (54.5%), including 8-of-22 from long range. Neither team experienced much time at the free throw line as the Lady Indians went 5-for-8. Catawba claimed a 36-17 edge in rebounding.
Pressley led all scorers on the night for Queens with 23 points. McKell Oliverio tallied 14 points of her own in the match.
Queens made 23-of-51 (45.1%) from the field and 7-of-15 from three. The Royals were a perfect 5-for-5 from the charity stripe.
Catawba will stay at home as they host Brevard on Saturday for their final home game of the regular season. Tipoff is scheduled for 2:00 p.m.
