Late Rally Falls Short at Anderson

19_McLaughlin,JeremyQUC
ANDERSON, S.C. – For the second time in four days, Catawba men’s basketball is on the wrong end of a one-possession game Saturday against Anderson at the Abney Center.

The Indians overcame a 12-point deficit with 12:48 left in regulation before falling to the Trojans 82-80. Catawba dropped to 13-4 on the season and 6-3 in South Atlantic play, while Anderson improved to 10-7, 4-5.

Jameel Taylor buried a 17-foot step-back jumper with 11 seconds remaining. His bucket pulled Catawba even with Anderson at 80-80.

Coming out of a Trojans’ timeout, Shawn Bernard’s jumper was blocked by the Indians’ Marcell Haskett as the clock hit zero, sending both teams to their respective benches in preparation for overtime. A late whistle, after the horn and a conference by the officials, resulted in the ruling of a clean block was overturned and .02 seconds put back on the clock. Bernard stepped to the line and drained both free-throws, icing the game for Anderson.

Trailing 60-48 with 12:48 left in regulation, Catawba utilized a 20-7 run over the next six and a half minutes, grabbing its first lead of the game at 68-67, when Jordan Barber converted one of two chances at the line.

Anderson opened up a four-point lead at 80-76 with 42 seconds remaining. Jeremy McLaughlin cut the Indians’ deficit in half, sinking both free throws with 22 seconds left. Bernard coughed up the ball in his own defensive end, setting up Taylor’s game-tying bucket.

McLaughlin collected a double-double with 10 points and 11 rebounds, while three other Indians’ finished in double-digit scoring.

Devin Cooper led Catawba with 16 points, going 5-of-9 from the floor. He converted 2-of-3 from 3-point range. He was 4-for-4 at the free-throw line.

DaQuan Lilly added 12 points and Ben Zemonik finished with 10.

Anderson was led by Gage Ellis’ 20 points. Randall Shaw tallied 19, while Josh Livingston recorded 15 and Jeremy Bouton netted 19.
