Late Baskets By Brown and Taylor Lift Men's Basketball in OT at Newberry

NEWBERRY, S.C. -- Jameel Taylor’s (Anderson, S.C./Hanna) jumper with six seconds left in overtime pushed Catawba to a 100-99 victory over host Newberry in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Eleazer Arena.  The Catawba Indians up their mark to 11-6 overall and 5-6 in the SAC, while the Wolves fall to 12-5 and 7-4.

The Indians trailed by three early in overtime then got a jumper by Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman) at the 2:24 mark and another from Taylor with 1:12 remaining to go on top 96-95.  Two free throws from Taylor with 47 seconds left made it a 98-95 Catawba lead.

Quaman Burton pulled with Wolves within a point on two free throws with 27 seconds remaining.  Burton followed with a steal and layup with 20 seconds left to put Newberry back ahead 99-98.  Taylor sank his winning basket and Mason Spease’s last-second three-pointer was off the mark.

Taylor and KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh/Henry CC) led five double-figure scorers for Catawba with 20 points each.  Taylor made 9-of-12 shots, while Arrington hit on 8-of-12.  Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg) had a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds. 

Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.) added 13 points and sent the game to overtime with a late three-pointer in regulation.  Warren rounded out the double-digit scorers with 10 points. 

Six Wolves reached double figures.  Gerald Evans led the unit with 15 points and James Stepp scored 14.  D.J. Copleand collected 13 points, while Spease, Burton and Sikander Nielsen all scored a dozen.

The Indians trailed by a dozen with just under five minutes left in regulation.  Arrington’s three-pointer with 4:19 to go started a 9-0 run that pulled Catawba to within 88-85 with 2:43 remaining.  Evans put Newberry back up by five before Taylor reduced it to 90-87 with 1:17 left.  Following a turnover, Brown hit a three-pointer with 33 seconds to play and Evans misfired on a jumper with three seconds left to end the 40 minutes in a deadlock at 90.

Catawba shot 55% in the win, making 43-of-78 shots.  The Wolves shot 46% and made 36 field goals, but made up for it by canning 18 three-pointers.  The Indians held a 50-33 edge on the boards.

Catawba will be at home on Saturday, hosting Tusculum at 4 pm.  The Indians won the earlier meeting 89-86 at Tusculum in early December.
