Freshmen Graves, Wooldridge help Men's Basketball rally from 21-point deficit

SALISBURY, NC Ė Lenoir-Rhyne pulled away in the final half, while host Catawba rallied from a 21-point second half deficit to earn wins in menís basketball action at the Walt Baker Classic on Friday night at Goodman Gym. Lenoir-Rhyne (4-2) defeated St. Paulís (0-5) 87-66 and Catawba (4-5) topped Fayetteville State (5-2) 83-79. In the second game, Catawba fell behind 59-38 with 13:49 remaining, then fought its way back to take a 75-74 lead on a layup by freshman Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) with 1:51 left. A pair of free throws by the Broncosí Derek Frink (Shallotte, NC) put FSU up 76-75 at the 1:25 mark, but Graves answered with a three-pointer with 1:05 to go to give Catawba the lead for good. Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) and Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) each converted two free throws to push the Tribe lead to 82-76. Fayetteville Stateís Robert Ford (Gonzales, LA) nailed a three-pointer to cut the margin to 82-79 with 6.9 seconds left, but Graves made one of two at the line with 6.3 ticks left to seal the win. Ford led all scorers, hitting for a game-high 34 points for the Broncos. He also added 13 rebounds. Frink and Donel Williams (Los Angeles, CA) each scored 11. Magnusson scored 17 to pace the Indians, while Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) added 16. Freshmen Wooldridge and Graves added 13 and 10 points, respectively, with Wooldridge adding nine boards. Lenoir-Rhyne held just a 36-33 lead on St. Paulís at the half, but used a 30-8 run in the opening 11 minutes of the final stanza to take control. The Bears canned four three-pointers in the run and also cashed in on a pair of old fashioned three-point plays in the spurt. Tony Connelly (Charlotte, NC) led the Bears with 20 points, while David Lawson (Kinston, NC) added 11, hitting on a trio of three-pointers. Shane Smith (Queens, NY) led St. Paulís with 23 points, while Greg Moore (Rialto, CA) added 13. #####
