CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Catawba snapped a five-game losing streak, rolling past host Queens in South Atlantic Conference women’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Curry Arena.  The Catawba Indians improve to 14-10 and 11-8, while the Royals fall to 4-20 and 4-15.

Madison Hallman (Thomasville, N.C./E. Davidson) led Catawba with a career-best 17 points, connecting on 5-of-8 shots with a trio of three-pointers.  Bri Johnson (Statesville, N.C./W. Iredell/Belmont Abbey) followed with 15 points and Serena Brown (Ft. Washington, Md./Bowie) scored a dozen while handing out five assists.

Queens got 12 points from Maggie Stewart and 11 off the bench from Hailey Riffe.  Queens committed 30 turnovers which helped lead to 34 Catawba points.

Stewart scored the first eight points for Queens as the Royals hung within 13-8 with just over three minutes left in the opening quarter.  Catawba scored the final nine points of the frame getting a three-pointer from Johnson and two from Hallman to lead 22-8.

Down nine midway through the second quarter, Queens managed just one point the rest of the half as Catawba took control.  Alexis Newbold (Bowie, Md./Bowie) started a 13-0 run to push the Catawba lead to 36-14.  The Lady Indians led by 20 or more for most of the second half.

After two games of failing to shoot 30%, Catawba canned nearly half its shots (49%) against Queens.  The Lady Indians went 9-of-22 from long range with Johnson hitting four three-pointers, Hallman three and Brown two. 

Catawba plays its last regular-season road game of the year on Saturday, traveling to Brevard for a 2 pm tipoff.
