15_MBB_WarrenTroyWING1

SALISBURY, N.C. – Catawba used a big night on the boards, outrebounding visiting Winston-Salem State 50-36 in taking an 86-71 win in men’s basketball action on Monday night at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 4-2, while the Rams fall to 3-3.

Catawba scored the game’s first six points, on layups by Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna), Andrew Ingram (Bowie, Md./Archbishop Carroll) and Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.), and never trailed.  The Indians would pull out to 39-23 lead after a three-pointer by Ben Sealey (Hampton, Va./Menchville/Va. Intermont) at the 4:42 mark of the half, but the Rams made a late run to close within five.

A 10-0 run that included a pair of three-pointer by Michael Adams cut the Catawba lead to 40-35.  A buzzer-beating three-pointer by Carlos Rankins kept the margin at five at the break with the Indians leading 45-40.

Catawba didn’t score over the first two minutes of the second half, but WSSU managed only a free throw by Colon.  Baskets by Brown, Ingram and Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman) returned the double-digit advantage for the Indians.  

Jason Payne closed the gap to 59-52 on a three-pointer with 10:55 to go then Catawba began to pull away.  The Indians went on a 14-2 spurt over the next four minutes that put the game away.  Catawba had 14 of its 22 offensive boards in the second half to produce 20 second-chance points.

KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh/Henry CC) led Catawba with 20 points with Ingram and Warren both producing double-doubles.  Ingram had 14 points and 11 boards with Warren adding 11 points and 13 rebounds.  Taylor tallied 17 points and handed out eight assists.

Colon scored 16 points to pace WSSU.  Nate Long had 14 points and 14 rebounds.  The Rams shot 38% in the loss, while Catawba canned 46%.

Catawba travels to North Greenville on Thursday for a 7 pm tip.
