Lady Indians Pull Away in the Second Half at Chowan

MURFREESBORO, N.C. – Neither team’s offense was aesthetically pleasing in the first 20 minutes of play but Catawba found its rhythm in the second half. The Lady Indians pulled away late for the 48-37 victory over Chowan at the Helms Center Wednesday.

Catawba improved to 7-4 with the win, while Chowan dropped to 8-5.

Knotted at 25-25 with 2:52 remaining in the third quarter, the Lady Indians pulled away with an 18-5 run over an eight-minute span. They went 7-for-8 from the field, nailing all three shots from 3-point range, extending the advantage to 43-30, with 4:53 remaining. Chowan sank just two of the Hawks 15 field-goal attempts, including 1-of-5 from long distance.

Elizabeth Webb recorded six of her game-high 13 points during the Lady Indians spurt. Her 13 points is the most in a game for her this season. She added seven rebounds, setting a new career high.

The teams traded buckets the rest of the way for the final tally.

After a poor shooting performance by both sides in the first half, the teams headed to the locker room tied at 14-14.

Catawba made six of its 28 shots in the first half, registering seven points in each quarter. Chowan also tallied seven points in the first and second frames, making just five of its 33 shot attempts.

Talia Barnes joined Webb in double figures for Catawba, adding 10. Taisha DeShazo grabbed a game-high nine rebounds.

The Lady Indians did not allow any of the Hawks to score in double figures. Jada Lee led the way with nine points, while Danielle Weldon led Chowan with eight boards.

Inside the Numbers:
- Catawba shot 34 percent (17-of-50) from the field, including 27.3 percent from deep (6-of-22).
- Chowan went 14-of-67 (20.9 percent) from the floor, including 3-of-20 (15 percent) from 3-point range.

Opening Statement:
It was an ugly defensive game but we will take it on the road anyway we can get it. I’m really proud of the bench tonight. Marissa Bruce, Emily Phillips and Keyotta Garris saved us tonight. They carried us to halftime. That is why we are a TEAM.

RE: Halftime adjustments
In the first half, we were out of sync and could not get into an offensive flow for some reason. We talked to the team at the half about being more physical and rebounding harder. They responded in the second half and fought for the win.

RE: Elizabeth Webb’s performance
Lizzy was the MVP tonight. She led us on both ends of the floor. She was the only one that came ready to play and she competed all game. She was everywhere tonigh and refused to lose, responding with 13 points and a career-high seven rebounds.
