Men's Basketball loses in double overtimeDURHAM, NC – Catawba College remained winless on the road this season, falling 92-81 in double overtime at North Carolina Central in men’s basketball action on Monday night at McLendon-McDougald Gym. Eagle junior guard Curtis Knight, the leading scorer in the CIAA, had just 10 points at the end of regulation, but scored 13 in two overtime periods to help NCCU improve to 3-2. Catawba falls to 3-4. Knight, who was 3-for-6 from the field with four free throws through the first 40 minutes of play, sent the game into double overtime with a three-point basket with nine seconds left in the first extra period, then went 10-for-10 from the charity stripe in the final five-minute session to top all scorers with 23 points. After making just 14-of-22 (63.6 percent) free throws in regulation, NCCU went 17-of-18 from the foul line in the overtime periods, including 15-of-16 in the second overtime session. The Indians did not help the situation. Catawba was whistled for three technical fouls in the second overtime period. The Indians trailed by seven with just over eight minutes remaining in the opening half, but rallied to take a 30-29 edge at the break. Catawba would build a 47-42 lead early in the second half which would be the largest lead for either team in the period. Down 64-61 inside the final minute of regulation, Magnusson hit one of two free throws with 40 seconds left and James McLean recorded a steal and made two free throws with 17 seconds remaining to force the first overtime. Magnusson hit a three-pointer to stake Catawba to a 67-64 lead in overtime, but a layup by Jason Hervey tied the score at 68-68 at the 2:08 mark. Catawba regained a three-point edge on a triple by Duke Phipps and Brian Frasier hit a pair of free throws with 18 seconds to go, setting up Knight’s tying three-pointer to force the second overtime. Catawba was topped by Magnusson and Frasier with 18 points each, while freshman forward Chris Wooldridge tallied a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds. NCCU posted five Eagles with double-figures in the scoring column, led by Knight's 23 points. James Tucker added 18 points, while David Young recorded 12 points before fouling out near the end of regulation. #####
