Catawba Blows Out Bluefield State 111-86

18_MBB_DaquanLilly
SALISBURY, N.C. – Junior Daquan Lilly and freshman Terrence Whitfield registered career nights in Catawba’s 111-86 rout of Bluefield State Monday inside Goodman Gym.

The Indians recorded their fourth win in five games, while the Big Blues fell to 3-4.

Catawba's duo of Lilly and Whitfield combined for 26 of the team’s 51 points in the first half, giving the Indians a comfortable 51-36 lead at the break.

Lilly, who entered with 32 points in four games this season, finished with 27 in 26 minutes of action. He went 11-for-13 from field, making his only 3-point attempt and making all four free throws on the night.

Whitfield tallied seven points in 17 minutes over three games this season, before Monday’s 20 point performance in 17 minutes. The freshman was 7-of-8 from the field, including 3-of-3 from long range and 3-of-3 at the charity stripe.

Bluefield State called a timeout four minutes into the game after a layup by Jameel Taylor pushed the Indians’ lead to 14-5. The offensive onslaught continued with Catawba shooting over 50 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes of action. The Big Blues found themselves down by 23, before draining three, 3-pointers as part of a 14-6 run to close the final two minutes.

Catawba opened the second half with a 20-8 run, extending its lead to 71-43 on a 3-pointer by Devin Cooper. Bluefield State took a timeout at the 16:12 mark but it did not slow down the Indians.

Rob Perron, head coach of Catawba, started emptying his bench with eight minutes remaining and his team up 90-59. The reserves continued to pressure Bluefield State over the next three minutes and saw the biggest lead of the night at 37, when Marcell Haskett converted two free-throw attempts.

Haskett and Cooper finished in double figures, with Haskett adding 18 and Cooper dropping 12 points.

Inside the Numbers:
- Catawba scored more than 100 points for the second time in five games.
