19_Stanbeck_Shemya
GREENEVILLE, TENN. – A gritty and gutsy performance by Catawba women’s basketball team falls short in overtime at Pioneer Arena Saturday.

Yolizma Cupidan, who accounted for one point in regulation, tallied all 10 for Tusculum in the extra frame, propelling the Pioneers to a 72-64 victory over the Lady Indians. She made all three of her shots from the floor, including both from 3-point range in overtime, after missing her seven shots in the first 40 minutes.

Catawba fell to seventh in the South Atlantic Conference at 10-8 overall and 5-6 in league play, while Tusculum improved to 13-5 and 6-5.

With three minutes, 29 seconds remaining in the first quarter, the Pioneers seemed in complete control with a 16-4 lead. Catawba missed its first seven shots from the field and turned the ball over four times and the four points came at the free-throw line.

Anna Gardner drained a 3-pointer for the Lady Indians nine seconds later, sparking a 13-4 run and cutting the deficit to 20-17 at the end of one period.

A slow start in the second period left Catawba scoreless for the first 3:38 and trailing Tusculum by eight. Madison Hallman’s trey with 5:22 left in the opening half, ignited a 14-5 run by the Lady Indians, ending the half with a 31-30 lead.

Both teams traded baskets most of the third quarter, before the Pioneers grabbed a five-point lead with 10 minutes left in regulation. They utilized a 7-2 run over the final the final 1:54 of the frame.

Mercedes Wampler’s lay-up with 4:27 remaining in regulation capped a 9-4 run for Catawba, squaring the game at 56-56.

A 5-0 run by Tusculum and a 6-0 spurt by the Lady Indians gave road team a 62-61 lead with 48 seconds remaining. Mia Long converted 1-of-2 at the charity stripe for the Pioneers with 25 seconds but Cupidan missed a lay-up at the horn, setting up the extra five minutes.

Taisha DeShazo led the Indians with 12 points and six rebounds. Shemya Stanbeck matched her career high with 12 points. She added six boards and two assists. Wampler chipped in 10 points.
