HICKORY, N.C. - - Five players scored in double digits as Catawba Women’s Basketball tops Lenoir-Rhyne in South Atlantic Conference action Wednesday night in Shuford Memorial Gymnasium.

Catawba shot 45% from the field and 82% from the free throw line in the victory over Lenoir-Rhyne. Terri Rogers led the Lady Indians with 17 points. Madison Hallman added 11 points, while Marshauna Butler, Serena Brown, and Talia Barnes each tallied 10. Lenoir-Rhyne shot 43% and was led by Kendall Toineeta’s 25 points.

Catawba jumped out to early to take the lead in the initial 10-minute period. The Lady Indians had a nine point edge for the majority of the first quarter and ended with a 19-12 advantage. Lenoir-Rhyne scored first in the second quarter with Brown answering quickly. Catawba maintained their lead and took a 41-35 edge to the break.

The Bears chipped away at the Lady Indians lead until they took control midway through the third 10-minute period. Catawba only allowed Lenoir-Rhyne to go ahead by four before tying the game at 51 with 3:18 left in the quarter. The Bears regained the lead, but the Lady Indians answered with under a minute remaining. A made free throw by Hallman gave Catawba their final point of the period with four seconds left to give them a one point advantage going into the fourth quarter.
