DeShazo and the Catawba offense would take over in the 2nd half, however, as they shot 64% in the half to storm ahead and not look back. DeShazo shot 13-24 from the floor and went 7-14 from three point land.
The third quarter was a wild one as the Indians would out-score the Cavaliers 46-17. Nothing UVA-Wise could do would stop the Catawba attack as the Indians took control of the game.

Catawba will look to extend their seven game winning streak to start the season when they travel to Mars Hill next Saturday at 2 pm.
