16_MBB_IngramAndrewMH

SALISBURY, N.C. -- KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh/Henry CC) knocked down 26 points and Catawba held off a Tusculum rally to post an 84-71 South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball win on Saturday afternoon at Goodman Gym.  The Catawba Indians improve to 12-6 overall and 6-6 in the SAC, while the Pioneers fall to 7-10 and 4-8.

Catawba took a 19-point lead early in the second half and still held that margin at 58-39 with 15:37 remaining when a six-minute scoring draught brought the Pioneers within five with just under 10 minutes to play.  Ronnie Baylark had two baskets and a three-pointer as the gap closed to 58-49 at the 11:32 mark.  Two free throws from Kendall Patterson and a layup by Caleb Hodnett had the margin at 58-53 with 9:54 left.

Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg) finally ended the dry spell for Catawba with 9:34 to go and Arrington followed a jumper by Andrew Ingram (Bowie, Md./Archbishop Carroll) with a dunk off a steal to push the lead to 64-55.  A Jameel Taylor (Anderson, S.C./Hanna) layup and a free throw by Morrison had Catawba up 67-55 with 6:51 remaining.

Tusculum clawed back within six with four minutes left, but Catawba was 12-of-14 at the line in the final two minutes to thwart the comeback. 

Arrington hit on 11-of-19 shots in garnering his 26 points, while adding seven rebounds.  Taylor finished with 16 points and Ingram scored 13.  Taylor added eight rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals to his stat sheet.  Rakeen Brown (Hampton, Va./Bethel/Delaware St.) rounded out the double-digit scorers for the Indians with 11 points and Troy Warren (Mooresville, N.C./Lake Norman) pulled down 11 rebounds.

Baylark hit for 20 points to lead Tusculum.  Patterson collected 18 points, while Cory Fagan chipped in with a dozen.  Zach Davis led the Pioneers with seven rebounds.

Catawba hosts Coker on Wednesday at 8 pm as the Indians will try to avenge an earlier 94-86 loss to the Cobras in late November.
