The Lady Indians were able to maintain control and took a nine point edge to the fourth quarter. Catawba found their groove again and shot 50 percent in the last 10-minutes. The Lady Indians went on a 12 to 4 point run to lead by 16 with 3:25 remaining in the game. Catawba closed out their home league opener with the 12 point win over Tusculum.
