WINGATE, N.C. - Even with the men’s basketball team losing to Wingate, Jameel Taylor moved up to 15th on Catawba’s All-Time Scoring List Wednesday at Cuddy Area.

Wingate's 88-74 victory over the Indians, is just the second setback of the season for Catawba.

Taylor, who became the 16th player to reach the 1,500-career point milestone in the Indians win over Mars Hill Saturday, led his team with 16 points. He added six rebounds and three assists. With his 16 points, the senior from Anderson, South Carolina, is now tied with Mark Simpson for 15th all-time, one point behind Rob Fields.

Outscored 55-46 in the second half, the Indians drop to 8-2 on the season and 3-1 in South Atlantic Conference while the Bulldogs improved to 5-5 overall and 3-1 in league play. The loss snapped a seven-game winning streak for Catawba.

After falling behind 12-4 just four minutes into the contest, Catawba grabbed its largest lead of the day at 22-18 midway through the first 20 minutes of play.

Wingate closed the half with a 10-2 run, including a buzzer-beating 3-point field goal, staking the Bulldogs to a 33-28 advantage. Wingate opened the final 20 minutes with a 15-2 run, with both of Catawba's points coming at the free-throw line. The spurt opened an 18-point margin at 48-30 with 14:15 remaining. Another Bulldog run increased the deficit to 24, with six minutes left, before Catawba made one-final push.

Free-throws heavily tilted in the Bulldogs favor, resulted in seven more shots than the Indians attempted. Wingate went 29-of-38 at the charity stripe while Catawba was 14-for-22.

Inside the Numbers:
- The 88 points by Wingate is the most Catawba has allowed all season.
- Catawba’s 74 points is the second fewest of the campaign.
- The Bulldogs went 27-of-73 (37 percent) from the field, including 6-of-20 (30 percent) from behind the arc.
- Wingate shot 41.7 percent from the field (25-of-60), including 33.3 percent from 3-point range (9-for-27).

Next Up:
The Indians travel to the state capital on New Year’s Eve for a 2 p.m. tip-off against the Falcons of Saint Augustine’s.
