SALISBURY, N.C. – Catawba shot 53% and put four players in double figures in taking an 82-60 victory over visiting Belmont Abbey in men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 3-1, while the Crusaders fall to 2-2.

KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh/Henry CC) came off the bench to score 18 points with five rebounds and four assists for the Indians.   Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg) followed with 17 points and seven boards, while Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman) tossed in 10 points.  Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.) had 10 points, seven assists, four steals and three rebounds with no turnovers in 23 minutes of action.

Deion Lane led the Crusaders with a double-double of 20 points and 10 rebounds.  Jacob Wilson collected 17 points.  Belmont Abbey committed 21 turnovers, double its season average.

Wilson had eight of his points in the opening three minutes, with a pair of threes, to put Belmont Abbey out to a 10-2 lead.  After a timeout, Catawba would use a 14-4 run to take the lead, capped by a three-pointer and layup by Brown. 

The Indians led 33-30 at the break and were up only 45-43 with 14 minutes to play.  Arrington and Morrison jump-started an 18-6 run with back-to-back transition three-pointers that upped the margin to 63-49 with 10:36 left following another three-pointer from Morrison.  Belmont Abbey never closed within single digits as Catawba pushed its lead to 20 in the final minutes.

Turnovers played a big part in the Catawba win, scoring 24 points off the Crusader miscues.  Belmont Abbey got just three points off a dozen Indian turnovers. 

 Catawba moves back to league action on Tuesday with an 8 pm tipoff at Coker.
