Rogers' Cans 29 in Loss to Newberry

SALISBURY, N.C. - - The Catawba Lady Indians came up short to visiting Newberry Wolves Thursday night in Goodman Gymnasium. The 65-73 loss drops Catawba’s record to 9-8 overall and 7-3 in the South Atlantic Conference, while Newberry improves to 9-8 and 7-3 in the conference.

The Lady Indians shot for 40% from the field and 83% from the free throw line. Terri Rogers posted her third double-double of the season with 29 points and 12 rebounds to lead Catawba. Serena Brown had four points, while handing out 11 assists. Newberry shot for 51% and was led by Meg Essex’s 21 points.

Catawba came up short after a fight for the lead in the first 10-minute period, where the score was tied five times. A basket by Alexis Newbold put the Lady Indians on top by 2 with 1:14 left in the quarter, but the Wolves answered with a 3-point basket at the buzzer to go up 13-12.

 Catawba and Newberry continued the battle in the second. Both teams saw a four point lead in their favor during the 10-minutes before the break. The Lady Indians held on and took a 30-28 point edge into the half.

The Lady Indians built their lead back up to four early right after the break. Newberry went on a 13-2 point run to gain control of the third quarter. Catawba was able to keep within a single digit deficit and trailed by six to begin the last 10-minutes.

The Lady Indians never backed down and chipped away at the Wolves’ lead, and a layup by Taisha DeShazo put Catawba within three mid-way through the last quarter. Despite the fight, the Lady Indians came up short at the final buzzer.

Catawba will return to Goodman Gymnasium on Saturday, hosting Lincoln Memorial in South Atlantic Conference action. Tip off between the Lady Indians and the visiting Railsplitters will be at 2 pm.
