21_MBB_McLeodLarryMH

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba got a second straight double-double from freshman Bernard Pelote and 23 points from Marcus Burwell to score its third straight win by defeating visiting Lenoir-Rhyne 91-80 in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Monday night at Goodman Gym. The Catawba Indians improve to 7-10 overall and 7-10 in the SAC and secure a home game for Saturday’s opening round of the Pilot Flying J SAC Tournament. The Bears fall to 8-5 and 8-5.

The Indians trailed only briefly and took the lead for good at 20-18 on a pair of free throws by Terrence Whitfield at the 8:27 mark of the opening half. Back-to-back three-pointer by Traylynn Spencer pushed the lead to 28-20. Spencer’s fourth three-pointer of the half gave Catawba a 36-27 edge with four minutes remaining in the half.

Catawba took a 43-33 lead to the break. Spencer scored all of his career-high 16 points in the opening period where he went 6-for-7 and 4-of-5 from behind the arc.

The Indians built the lead to a dozen several times in the second half, but the Bears got within five after a three-pointer by Armon Muldrew with 5:27 left. Pelote and Burwell hit three-pointers to ease Catawba back out to a 76-67 edge with 2:58 to go.

Burwell was 7-of-12 shooting and canned three from long range. He added nine rebounds and four assists. Pelote scored 15 points and pulled down 11 boards. Spencer and Larry McLeod each had 16 and Caleb Robinson rounded out five double-digit scorers with 10.

Darius Simmons led the Bears with 25 points, going 11-of-16 from the field. R.J. Gunn added 21 points and eight rebounds. Muldrew tossed in a dozen in the loss.

Both teams shot 50%, but Catawba outrebounded the Bears 44-31. The Indians also did better at the line, making 17-of-22 (77%) to just 9-of-20 (45%) for LR.

Catawba travels to Wingate on Wednesday to close out the regular season against the Bulldogs at 8 p.m.
