Men's Basketball upsets #18 Lenoir-Rhyne 64-62

HICKORY, NC – Catawba College snapped Lenoir-Rhyne’s 10-game win streak and upset the #18 Bears 64-62 in South Atlantic Conference men's basketball action on Saturday night at Shuford Gym. The Indians improve to 8-13 overall and 3-5 in the SAC, while Lenoir-Rhyne, the top-ranked team in the region, falls to 16-4 and 7-1. Freshman Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) gave Catawba a 61-58 lead with 34 seconds remaining just beating the shot clock. After two free throws from Ryan Pitts (Baltimore, MD) with 18 seconds left, Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) hit a pair of free throws to give the Tribe a 63-60 lead. Randy Mauldin (Albemarle, NC) would hit a deep two-pointer to trim the Tribe lead to 63-62 with five seconds left. Catawba’s Duke Phipps (Newport News, VA) added one free throw for Catawba and Rashad Price's (Charlotte, NC) desperation three-pointer at the top of the key fell short at the buzzer and the Indians prevailed. Catawba would score the first five points of the game and led until Tony Connelly (Charlotte, NC) hit four straight free throws to put LR on top 29-27 with 2:48 to go in the opening half. A three-pointer by Phipps with 35 seconds in the stanza sent the teams to the locker room even at 33-33. The Indians would start the second half strong as well, grabbing a 45-36 lead just over five minutes into the final frame. Trailing 55-47 with eight minutes left, the Bears scored nine straight points to take a 56-55 lead with 3:55 remaining. Phipps and Connelly would trade baskets to lead the Bears up 58-57 with 2:10 to go. Magnusson would give Catawba the lead for good on a pair of free throws with 1:51 left. The Bears shot just two-for-12 (17 percent) from behind the three-point line compared to Catawba's 8-for-18 night from behind the arc. Magnusson posted a double-double for Catawba with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Phipps scored a team0high 16 points. Brain Frasier (Martinsville, VA) scored 13 points and Wooldridge 10 to also reach double figures for the Tribe. For L-R, Pitts tallied his eighth double-double of the season with 19 points and 14 rebounds. Connelly added 15 points and Price totaled 14. #####
