21_MBB_PeloteBernardAND

ANDERSON, S.C. -- The Catawba men’s basketball team (6-10, 6-10 SAC) defeated Anderson (5-10, 5-10 SAC) Saturday night by a final score of 94-90. Bernard Pelote was the high scorer for the Indians with a career-high 25 points on 7-of-15 shooting.

This contest was tight throughout as neither team could pull away from the other. Anderson’s largest lead came just under 15 minutes left to play in the first half as they led Catawba by 9 points. The Indians would erase that deficit and take a 50-47 lead into the halftime break.

Pelote would score 11 of his 25 points in the second half to help the Indians stave off a strong effort by the Trojans. The end of the second half was an exciting back-and-forth battle that saw both teams exchanging leads. With exactly one minute to play, point guard Marcus Burwell hit a three-pointer to give Catawba the lead 90-88. Caleb Robinson then hit a layup with 27 seconds left and the Indians went up by four.

Two free-throws by Pelote sealed the deal with 4 seconds to play in the game as Anderson would hit a two pointer at the end to bring the final score to 94-90. Anthony Peacock came through with a 13-point performance off the bench and 4 rebounds. Larry McCloud also scored 13 of his own. Burwell finished with 12 points on 4-8 shooting.

Catawba dominated the glass with 41 rebounds to the Trojans’ 28. This led to the Indians scoring 22 second chance points. The bench came to play for Catawba as well, outscoring Anderson’s bench 35-12.

This Monday night is senior night for the men’s basketball team. Tip-off against Lenoir-Rhyne is set for 7 pm.
