Magnusson lifts Men's Basketball to win with late three-pointer

SALISBURY, NC Ė Sophomore Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) connected on his sixth three-pointer of the night with just 25 seconds remaining as host Catawba defeated Wingate 91-90 in South Atlantic Conference menís basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. The basket came with the Indians trailing 90-88 after a tight battle over the final five minutes that saw six ties and four lead changes. Catawba snaps six-game losing streak and improves to 6-11 overall and 1-3 in the SAC. The Bulldogs fall to 4-12 and 1-3. Catawba held as much as a 14-point lead in the second half and led 69-57 with 10:45 left before a 10-0 Bulldog, which was capped by a three-pointer by Ahmad Richardson (Havelock, NC), cut the Indian lead to 69-67 at the 7:53 mark. Catawba would keep the lead until a three-point play by Bryan Grier (Charlotte, NC) put Wingate up 78-77 with 4:09 left, marking the Bulldogsí first lead since a 10-8 edge at the 16:34 mark of the opening half. Magnusson answered the Wingate lead with a three-pointer then Chris Ransome (Plymouth, NC) tied the game on a jumper with 3:32 remaining. Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) gave Catawba the lead back on a short jumper and Ramsome tied the contest on a pair of free throws with 2:52 left. A Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) layup put Catawba back on top, but Keenan Dunnís (Charlotte, NC) jumper with 2:04 left knotted the game at 84-84. A pair of free throws by Titus Miller (Spartanburg, SC) gave Wingate a lead, but Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, NC) hit two free throws with 1:21 remaining to retie the score. Brad Hinson (Monroe, NC) put Wingate on top on a jumper with a minute left, but Manning scored a layup with 45 seconds to go to knot the score at 88-88. Miller would add two free throws with 34 ticks left before Magnussonís three gave Catawba its winning points. Phipps knocked the ball away from Miller in the final five seconds to deny the Bulldogs a final shot. Magnusson would lead the Indians with 25 points and added nine rebounds, while Manning added 24 points and 12 rebounds. Phipps added 14. Wingate placed five players in double digits with Dunn leading the way with 16. Miller and Grier each had 15 points and seven rebounds.
