17_WBB_BrownSerenaUNCW

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba scored the final 14 points in rallying for a 71-67 South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball win on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 8-3 overall and 5-1 in the SAC, while the Bears fall to 7-4 and 3-3.

The Bears led 67-57 with just over three minutes to play, but turned the ball over on five straight possessions and Catawba capitalized.  Lenoir-Rhyne had an 11-point lead with 4:27 to go after a three-pointer by Justyce Swango and Madi Suddreth’s two free throws made it 67-57 with 3:33 remaining. 

A three-pointer by Catawba’s Elizabeth Webb (Statesville, N.C./W. Iredell) with 3:12 left started the big run to end the game for the Lady Indians.  Alexis Newbold (Bowie, Md./Bowie) hit a pair of free throws after the first of the five LR turnovers and Terri Rogers (Burlington, N.C./E. Alamance) a jumper following the second to cut the margin to 67-64. 

An offensive foul led to Brown’s jumper with 1:22 to play to pull Catawba within a point, the closest it had been since early in the second quarter.  Catawba would take the lead with 31 seconds remaining on a three-pointer by Brown following a steal by Webb.  Johnson put the Lady Indians up by four in the final 10 seconds after LR’s last turnover. 

Johnson led all scorers with 20 points for the Lady Indians.  Brown followed with 15 points and nine assists.  Webb, who had not played since Nov. 26, added 11 points and hit on 3-of-4 from behind the arc.  Rogers also returned from an injury to score nine points and grab eight rebounds.

Suddreth scored 18 to lead the Lenoir-Rhyne scoring.  Brooke Robinson and Kendall Toineeta each collected 12 points with Swango adding 11.  Chelsey Romero pulled down eight rebounds.

The Bears took a 10-9 lead on a put-back by Robinson at the 3:15 mark of the opening quarter and held the lead until the final minutes of the game.  Lenoir-Rhyne held a 30-25 edge at the break and extended the lead to 52-43 by shooting 9-of-12 (75%) in the third quarter. 

Lenoir-Rhyne shot 56.5% for the game to just 42.6% for Catawba.  The Bears could not overcome the turnover deficit that led to 31 Lady Indian points.  LRs had eight of their 19 turnovers in the final quarter, while Catawba finished the game with just eight miscues and none in the last 10-minute stanza.

Catawba will next host Queens on Wednesday at Goodman Gym at 6 pm.
