18_MBB_McLaughlinJeremyQUE

ANDERSON, S.C. -- Catawba rallied from a 10-point deficit midway through the second half to grab a 77-65 win against host Anderson in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at the Abney Center. The Catawba Indians improve to 7-13 overall and 4-11 in the SAC, while the Trojans fall to 7-15 and 5-9.

Anderson led 54-44 with just over 10 minutes to play and 59-51 with 8:09 left before Catawba stormed back. Jordan Barber started the rally with a three-pointer and after a Malik Constantine layup the Indians trailed just 61-60 with 6:46 remaining.

Jeremy McLaughlin, who had a career-high 23 points, tied the game at 62-all with 5:15 to go. McLaughlin’s dunk put the Indians up for good at 65-64 and the game swung after he took a charge from Trojan guard Randall Shaw, who objected to the call and was whistled for a technical foul. Catawba reeled off the next 12 points to push its lead to 77-64.

McLaughlin hit on 8-of-9 shots and went 7-of-10 at the line in posting his career-high 23 points. Jerrin Morrison scored 16 points, while Barber connected on four three-pointers for 16 points. Constantine added 11 points and went 7-0f-8 at the stripe. Catawba enjoyed one of its best games at the line, making 19-of-28 (68%) in a category where it ranks last in the SAC.

Gage Ellis led Anderson with 23 points. Jeremy Bouton added 15 and Rakish Taylor 11. The Trojans shot 51%, but had 23 turnovers, 10 more than Catawba.

Catawba is at home on Wednesday as the Indians host Lenoir-Rhyne at 8 pm.
