SALISBURY, NC Ė Lenoir-Rhyne and Catawba each won its second game of the weekend in menís basketball action at the Walt Baker Classic on Saturday night at Goodman Gym. Lenoir-Rhyne (5-2) defeated Fayetteville State (5-2) 74-67, while host Catawba (5-5) topped St. Paulís (0-6) 62-48. Tournament MVP Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) scored 12 points and added four assists and three steals to lead Catawba to its win. The Indians never trailed and the game was tied only once at 23-23 with 4:28 left in the opening half. Catawba used a 7-0 run late in the half to take a 33-25 lead and held a 33-28 edge at the break. Phipps had two assists and a steal and layup in the opening two minutes of the final stanza to push the Tribe lead to 39-28. The closest St. Paulís came after that was cutting the margin to five at 41-36 with 13:59 to go. Freshman Andy Thomson (Poynton, ENGLAND) was the only other Catawba player to reach double figures with 10. Shane Smith (Queens, NY) led the Tigers with 17 points, while Mike Jones (Detroit, MI) added a dozen. Catawba shot 52% in the final half and held St. Paulís to just 32%.

Lenoir-Rhyne spurted to a 36-20 lead at the half in its match-up with Fayetteville State and held on down the stretch. The Bears led by 20 at 59-39 with 9:16 to go, but FSU rallied to within 10 at the 6:17 mark. That would be as close as the Broncos could get until the final seconds.
