Men's Basketball suffers overtime defeat at Tusculum

GREENEVILLE, TN Ė Tusculum's Brad Hawks recorded a career-high 29 points, including four free throws in the final 29 seconds of overtime, to lead the Pioneers to a 67-63 win over visiting Catawba in South Atlantic Conference menís basketball action on Wednesday night at Alpine Arena. Hawks tallied his third straight double-double with 10 boards as he went 11-for-15 from the floor and blocked four shots as TC improved to 11-3 overall and 2-0 in the SAC. The Indians suffer their fifth straight loss in falling to 5-10 and 0-2. The game had all the drama including 12 ties and nine lead changes. The Pioneers led by one at the half and increased that advantage to eight points on two occasions in the second period. Catawba used a 10-2 run and tied the game at 51-51 with 6:50 left in regulation following a three-point play by Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, NC). The Tribe used another spurt going six unanswered points capped off by Helgi Magnussonís (Reykjavik, ICELAND) 12-foot jumper to retake the lead 59-57 with 49 seconds left. Hawks was fouled with 35 seconds remaining, but he missed the front end of the one-and-one. Tusculum's Cliff Charles hauled in one of his game-high 12 rebounds giving TC new life as Hawks took a bullet-pass from Mason Glick and knotted the game at 59-59 with his lay-up with 25 seconds left. Catawba's Chris Wooldridge's (Norfolk, VA) jumper with 11 seconds remaining was off the mark and hauled in by Charles. Charles got a shot off at the buzzer, but it rimmed out, sending TC into its first overtime of the season and third extra-time affair for Catawba. In overtime, TC moved out to a pair of two-point leads, but Catawba kept fighting, including Duke Phipps' (Newport News, VA) jumper with 1:18 remaining to knot the contest for the final time at 63-63. Douglas Tshomba's three-pointer with 43 seconds left with the shot clock running down rimmed out, but Glick came down with another big rebound. Hawks was fouled on a lay-up attempt and canned them both to give TC a 65-63 lead. Catawba looked to tie the game, but Manning's lay-up was blocked by Charles and Hawks pulled in the board to clinch the win. Charles posted 14 points to go along with his dozen rebounds. Greg McIntosh dished out a career-high six assists in the win. Magnusson finished the contest with 16 points, six rebounds and four assists. Phipps rounded out the scoring for Catawba with a dozen points and six boards. #####
