Rogers Tallies 23 Points in Loss at Wingate


WINGATE, N.C. -- Wingate held serve on its home court in a pair of regionally ranked teams, coming away with a 59-51 victory over Catawba in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Cuddy Arena.  The Bulldogs improve to 11-3 overall and 7-2 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 10-4 and 7-2.

Courtney Robinson led Wingate with 16 points with Alex Tomlinson adding a dozen points.  Marta Miscenko posted a double-double of 11 points and 11 rebounds.

Catawba got a game high 23 points from Terri Rogers (Burlington, N.C./E. Alamance), who hit on 10 of 15 shots and grabbed and eight rebounds.  Bri Johnson (Statesville, N.C./N. Iredell/Belmont Abbey) also reached double figures with 13 points.  Serena Brown (Ft. Washington, Md./Bowie) handed out eight assists.

Wingate used an 18-3 that bridged the first and second quarters to get a lead it never let go.  Down 15-9 late in the first period, the Bulldogs scored the final five points of the frame on a jumper by Tomlinson and her three-pointer in the final second.

Robinson scored two baskets to start the second quarter and the Bulldogs went up 21-15 after Tomlinson’s three-pointer at the 8:45 mark.  Johnson stopped the run with her lone three-pointer of the night, but Robinson came back with two buckets before Miscenko ended the spurt with a steal and layup.

A three-pointer by Madison Hallman (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson) cut the Bulldog lead to 30-26 with four minutes to go in the half then both teams went cold.  Miscenko had the only other points on a jumper with 2:11 left to send Wingate to the break on top 32-26.

Johnson (four points) and Rogers (three points) led a 7-0 run for Catawba in the third quarter that cut a 10-point deficit to 38-35 with 5:54 left.  Wingate responded with a 9-2 run that was capped by a three-pointer and two free throws by Robinson.  The Bulldogs would lead by double digits for most of the fourth quarter.

Shooting percentages and turnovers were fairly even, but Wingate enjoyed a 43-32 edge on the boards.  The Bulldogs turned 17 offensive rebounds into a 12-3 edge in second-chance points.

Catawba travels to Lincoln Memorial on Saturday to face the top team in the Southeast Region.  The Lady Railsplitters are ranked sixth nationally entering the 2 pm tipoff.
