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. The Catawba Lady Indians topped the Bears 76-70 to improve to 7-6 overall and 5-1 in the conference. Lenoir-Rhyne drops to 8-7 overall and 2-5 in the SAC.

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.

Lenoir-Rhyne scored quick and built a five point lead before a layup by Rogers scored the Lady Indians’ first points of the quarter. A jump shot by Madi Suddreth gave the Bears a one point edge with 3:10 left to play. Catawba did not allow Lenoir-Rhyne to score again, going on a 7-0 to end the game with the win. Brown gave Catawba the lead for good with 1:30 left then buried a three-pointer with 34 seconds to go for a 74-70 lead.
