Marshauna Butler paced Catawba with 18 points, hitting on 7-of-13 shots and a pair of three-pointers. Taisha DeShazo added nine points with Serena Brown picking up seven points with three assists. Talia Barnes grabbed seven rebounds.

Catawba led 30-29 at the break after Toni Tucker canned one of two at the line with a second to go in the first half. A layup by Morgan Franklin and a three-pointer by Butler pushed the Lady Indian lead to 35-29 early in the third quarter, but Fayetteville State would take over.

Butler kept the deficit in single digits with a pair of baskets early in the fourth quarter, but after her bucket with 7:35 to go, the Lady Indians would not score again until a free throw by Shemya Stanbeck with three ticks on the clock.

Jamesha Mosley led Fayetteville State with 12 points and seven rebounds. Breona Jones added 11 points with Danica Lucas scoring 10.

Catawba shot just 26% in the loss and went 2-of-21 (9.5%) in the fourth quarter. FSU knocked down 41% of its shots and were 21-of-27 at the line. The Broncos held a 47-34 edge on the boards which helped offset 25 turnovers.
