Haskett Drops 35; Catawba Defeats Newberry

19_Hasket,MarcellTUS
SALISBURY, N.C. – In the waning moments of a 15-point victory for Catawba men’s basketball over Newberry at Goodman Gym Wednesday, junior guard Marcell Haskett passed up a wide-open 3-point attempt, much to the chagrin of the pro-Indian crowd.

Haskett flirted with a feat, which has not been accomplished by a Catawba (15-5, 7-4) player in over seven years. He finished with a career-high 35 points in the Indians 100-85 win. The last time an Indian tallied 40-plus points in a single game was in an 80-77 win over Queens Nov. 22, 2011. Haskett’s 35 points is the most Jerrin Morris dropped 37 against St. Augustine’s last season.

Newberry (7-12, 3-9) never led but kept the game close early, trailing 25-24 with 9:58 left in the opening half.

Catawba closed the opening 20 minutes by outscoring the Wolves by 12 points, including 10 straight, taking a comfortable 55-42 lead into the locker room. The run came on a lay-up and triple by Haskett, a trey by Daquan Lilly, and a free throw from Jameel Taylor and one from Jordan McElveen in one minute, 45 seconds.

Newberry showed a sign of life in the first 2:40 of the second half, trimming the deficit to eight at 59-51 on a lay-up by Tai Giger. A 20-7 spurt by Catawba over the next six minutes eliminated any thoughts of a comeback by the Wolves.

Lilly registered his third double-double of the season with 17 points and 10 boards. Devin Cooper added 14 points, five rebounds and five assists. Jameel Taylor stuffed the stat sheet with seven points, six boards, four assists, two blocks and one steal.

The Wolves were led by Marshall Lange and Angelo Sales, who tallied 17 points each. Giger finished with 14 points and Luke Gibson dropped in 12.

Inside the Numbers:
- Marcell Haskett is averaging 22 points per game in Catawba’s last four home games.
- Fourteen of the Indians’ 15 wins have been by at least 10 points.
- Jameel Taylor has 1,671 career points, two back of Andre Godfrey for fifth most in school history.
- Catawba is 3-1 in television games this season and the final four home games will be aired on Antenna TV in the Charlotte area.

Next Up:
The Indians have a week before their next contest. Wingate visits Goodman Gym 25 minutes after the women’s game, which tips off at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
