Catawba never trailed and held a 39-29 lead at the break. The Indians would increase its lead to 16 early in the final half then held off a late Albany State rally.
Down 13 with just over four minutes to play, JaDon Davis and Rahdin Hughes hit on back-to-back three-pointers to cut the Catawba lead to 69-62. After a turnover, ASU pulled within 69-64 and then a layup by Hughes with 1:49 left cut the margin to 70-66.
Constantine, who went 8-of-9 at the line, sank a pair of free throws with 1:30 to go and two breakaway dunks by Morrison in the final 30 seconds iced the game. The Indians shot 40% from the field, while the Rams made just 29%. Catawba also enjoyed a 48-34 edge on the glass.
