Lady Indians Suffer First Home Loss of the Season

19_DeShazo,TaishaLMU
SALISBURY, N.C. – Taisha DeShazo’s double-double was not enough for a Catawba women’s basketball win Saturday at Enoch A. Goodman Gym.

Lincoln Memorial’s 72-59 victory was the Lady Indians first at home this season and dropped their record to 8-6 overall and 3-4 in South Atlantic Conference play. The Railsplitters improved to 8-6 on the campaign and 4-3 in league action.

Martinsville, Virginia native DeShazo failed to record a double-double in her first 30-career games. She finished with 14 points and a career-high 12 rebounds. This is the third time she grabbed at least 10 rebounds, all in the last 12 games, resulting in three double-doubles.

After a nip-and-tuck first half, Lincoln Memorial pulled away over the final two quarters with a combination of hot shooting on their part and Catawba’s offensive struggles. The Railsplitters went 12-for-25 (48.0 percent), including 6-for-9 (66.7 percent) from 3-point range, outscoring the Lady Indians 41-27 over the final 20 minutes.

Catawba kept it close in the third frame and trailed 51-46, with 10 minutes remaining, despite converting just 33.3 percent from the field. The Lady Indians went 5-of-6 from the free-throw line but struggled from the floor, making four of their 12 shots (33.3 percent), including 1-of-4 (33.3 percent) behind the arc.

Catawba jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the first two minutes, 31 seconds. The Railsplitters trimmed the deficit to 15-13 at the end of the quarter, after scoring 11 of the next 19 points.

The teams went to intermission with the Lady Indians holding a 32-31 advantage, which netted four ties and four lead changes. Catawba led by four on two-separate occasions during the frame but could not build on its breathing room.

Lincoln Memorial’s Rachel Griffith led five Railsplitters in double-digit scoring. She tallied a game-high 21 points. Sydney Newsome netted 11 points, while Dasia Maxwell, Emily Griffith and Lindsay Proffitt added 10 points each.

Inside the Numbers:
- Catawba outrebounded Lincoln Memorial 44-35, including 20-10 on the offensive glass.
- Both teams committed 20 turnovers, with the Railsplitters holding a 19-12 advantage in points off turnovers.
- The Lady Indians registered 13 assists on 18 made field goals, while Lincoln Memorial tallied 16 assists on 25 buckets.

Next Up:
Catawba concludes the current homestand at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Queens, which is 5-8 overall and winless in seven league games, makes the 42-mile road trip from South Charlotte to Salisbury, North Carolina.
