Arrington's Late Free Throw Lifts Men's Basketball Over Anderson
ANDERSON, S.C. -- KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh/Henry CC) sank the first of two free throws with four seconds left to give visiting Catawba a 72-71 win over Anderson in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at the Abney Center. The Catawba Indians rallied from eight down in the final three minutes to improve to 9-3 overall and 3-3 in the SAC. The Trojans fall to 5-6 and 3-2.
After a tight second half, Anderson pulled away to a 68-60 lead with 3:54 to play. It was still an eight-point game after a pair of free throws by Andrew Boynton with 2:57 left. A Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman) started a 9-0 run by the Indian to take the lead in the final minute.
Arrington followed Warren’s dunk with a layup at the 2:02 mark and Jameel Taylor’s (Anderson, S.C./Hanna) three-pointer cut the deficit to 70-69 with 1:49 left. Each team missed a shot before a Trojan turnover led to a Taylor jumper that put Catawba on top 71-70 with 29 second remaining.
Anderson drew a foul with 14 seconds to play and Randall Shaw hit the second of two free throws to tie the game. Arrington was fouled with four seconds remaining and hit the first free throws to put the Indians up 72-71. Anderson had one final chance, but a three-pointer by Lex Davis was off the mark.
Catawba got 19 points and nine rebounds from Taylor, playing in his hometown. Arrington was the only other Indian in double figures with 11. Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg) had nine points with Malik Constantine (Binghamton, N.Y./Olympic(NC) HS) chipping in with eight points and eight rebounds.
Shawn Bernard led all scorers with 25 for Anderson and was the lone Trojan in double figures. Jeremy Bouton grabbed 11 rebounds to go with seven points. Carlos Dotson had eight points.
Catawba fell behind 11-2 over the opening seven minutes. The Indians battled back to tie the game at 15-all at the 9:32 mark of the half and the teams stayed close for much of the rest of the game. Anderson held a couple of five-point leads, but it was mostly back-and-forth until the late Anderson surge.
Both teams shot near 50% with the Indians holding a 38-33 edge on the boards. Neither team committed 10 turnovers with Catawba making one less than Anderson’s nine.
Catawba returns to the court on Wednesday, January 4 as the Indians host Queens at 8 pm in Goodman Gym.
