Coker got to within 69-64 with 5:48 left before a jumper from Andrew Ingram (Bowie, Md./Archbishop Carroll) and a three-pointer by Jerrin Morrison (Charlotte, N.C./E. Mecklenburg) got Catawba back to a double-digit lead.  Morrison would assist and Ingram’s three-point play and a layup by KJ Arrington (Newport News, Va./Denbigh/Henry CC) to put the Indians up 81-68 with 1:26 to go.
