Men's Basketball falls in overtimeSALISBURY, NC – St. Augustine’s Des Peoples (Clinton, MD) scored a second-chance basket with four seconds remaining in overtime, snapping an 87-87 tie to lift the Falcons over host Catawba 90-87 in men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. The Falcons improve to 6-2, while Catawba falls to 5-8. Peoples finished the night with a double-double of 21 points and 13 rebounds, but it was Damien Daniels (Manhatten, NY), who scored 15 of his game-high 22 points in the second half and overtime to rally St. Augustine’s from a 13-point second half deficit. Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) posted a double-double for Catawba with 19 points and 10 boards, while freshman Timo Verwimp (Cologne, GERMANY) tossed in a career-high 19 points. St. Augustine’s looked to have locked the game up after Marcus Lane’s (Upper Marlboro, MD) dunk with 17 seconds left which gave the Falcons a 78-72 lead. Lane was called for a technical foul for hanging on the rim and Ahmad Murphy (Orangeburg, SC) hit a pair of free throws to trim the lead to 78-74. Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) hit a basket with 7.9 seconds left to cut the lead to 78-76. Bruce Shingler (Bladensburg, MD) waited through four timeouts for a chance to seal the game with 7.3 left, but he missed and Catawba called a timeout with 2.4 remaining. Verwimp would convert a follow shot with 0.3 remaining to send the game to overtime. Catawba held an 85-80 lead in the overtime after a three-pointer by Magnusson, but Carlos Gill (Flint, MI) tied the game on a three-point play with 2:31 to go. Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) gave the Indians their last lead on a pair of free throws with 1:21 remaining. Daniels would tie the game with 58 seconds left and a block by Gill on the next Tribe possession set up Peoples’ winning follow shot. After a Catawba turnover, Daniels hit one of two free throws with three seconds remaining and the Indians could not get off a final shot. Catawba held a 41-40 edge at the break, then hit on seven of its first nine shots in the opening 4:19 of the second half, including a pair of three-pointer by Verwimp to open a 58-45 lead. The Indians then missed its next 12 shots as the Falcons sliced into the lead, eventually tying the game at 60-60 on a three-pointer by Cedric Williams (Durham, NC) with 9:29 left. #####
