Men's Basketball falls at Carson-Newman

JEFFERSON CITY, TN Ė Carson-Newman shot 57% (33-of-58) for the game, including 63% (17-of-27) in the second half as the Eagles defeated visiting Catawba 87-56 in South Atlantic Conference menís basketball action on Saturday night at Holt Field House. Carson-Newman improves to 17-9 overall and 9-5 in the SAC, while Catawba falls to 9-18 and 4-10. The C-N defense forced 17 turnovers and produced 24 points off the miscues and the Eagles also out-rebounded the Indians, 35-29.

Braun Dabbs (Greeneville, TN) and Larry Coleman (Memphis, TN) each scored 15 points. Terrell Turner (Ft. Payne, AL) added 12 points and Ishmail Simmons (Atlanta, GA) finished with 11 points. The Indians were led in scoring by freshman Chris Woolridge (Norfolk, VA) who had 12 points. Fellow freshman Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) added 10 points for Catawba. The game was close for most of the first half until the Eagles pushed the lead to 41-29 on a jumper by Simmons seven seconds before halftime. C-N quickly pushed the lead to 15 points and then to 27 on a lay-up by Jonathan Martin (Knoxville, TN) at the 11:13 mark. The Indians would later cut the lead to 19 points, but would get no closer as the Eagles extended the lead to 30 points, 81-51, on a lay-up by Simmons with 3:07 remaining. #####
