McElveen's 21 and 10 Night Ingnites Catawba's Rout of Coker

19_McElveen_JordanMHU
SALISBURY, N.C. – Jordan McElveen’s third career double-double and first with the Catawba men’s basketball team, highlighted the Indians’ dominate performance over Coker.

McElveen went 8-of-12 from the field, including all three attempts from 3-point range and added two free throws enroute to a 21 point, 10 rebound performance. Jameel Taylor left his own mark on the night, passing Dwayne Grant (1978-82) for 10th on Catawba’s all-time scoring list.

Catawba recorded its 11th double-digit win this season, improving to 12-2 overall and 5-1 in South Atlantic Conference play, with a 106-72 win over the Cobras. Coker falls to 3-10 on the campaign and 1-5 in league play with the defeat.

Playing their fourth game in 10 days, including a three-game road trip last week, the Indians were short-handed but other players stepped up. They ran away with a wire-to-wire victory, grabbing a 49-28 lead at the break.

Coker kept the contest close in the early going, trailing 19-14, with 10:37 left in the first 20 minutes of play.

Catawba, which shot 52 percent from the field in the opening half, closed the frame with a 30-14 run. During the spurt, the Indians secured its biggest lead of the first half at 19 at 38-19, with a 19-5 run, culminated by two free throws from Trae Cannon at the 4:34 mark. Catawba opened the second half with a 10-0 run, extending its lead to 58-30 with 16:47 remaining. McElveen’s 3-point field goal at the 7:44 mark gave the Indians their biggest lead of the night at 37 points. Leading 80-43, Head Coach Rob Perron emptied his bench as Catawba waltzed to a 34-point victory.

Taylor added 15 points, three boards and two assists, joining McElveen and four other teammates in double-figures.

Sophomore Tae Cannon came off the bench and recorded his best performance in his first two seasons. He went 4-of-6 from the field and 6-of-6 from the free-throw line, tallying 14 points and five boards. The point output was almost double his previous high of eight, while the five boards equaled his career best. Cannon entered the contest with five career blocks and swatted away three shots on the evening.

Terrence Whitfield dropped in 12 points, while Marcell Haskett finished with 10 points and a game high five steals. All five steals came on attempted in-bounds plays by the Cobras.

Jeremy McLaughlin, who had a 101-degree temperature pre-game, knocked down five of his six field goal attempts in 20 minutes and grabbed seven rebounds.

Khalil Halls led Coker with 18 points, while Roy Ellis netted 14.

Inside the Numbers:
- Catawba outscored Coker 60-30 in the paint and 23-11 on second-chance points.
- Coker committed 23 turnovers, which accounted for 33 Catawba points, while the Indians allowed six points off their 11 miscues.
- Catawba outscored Coker 18-9 in fast-break points and 49-36 in bench points.

Next Up:
Catawba takes on Lincoln Memorial 30 minutes after the conclusion of the women’s game Saturday. The two squads enter Saturday’s contest one game behind Queens at the top of the league standings.
