Men's Basketball advances to SAC semis with upset of Tusculum

HICKORY, NC -- Freshman Timo Verwimp (Cologne, GERMANY) hit a three-pointer with 7:21 remaining and Catawba never trailed the rest of the way as the seventh-seeded Indians advanced to the semifinals of the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Men's Basketball Tournament with a 60-58 win over Tusculum at the Multipurpose Facility at Catawba Valley Community College. Catawba, now 10-19, will face Carson-Newman on Saturday at CVCC at 6 p.m. Tusculum falls to 19-8. Following the three-pointer by Verwimp, the game was tied twice, but Catawba never trailed. Bobby Ewing (Owensboro, KY) tied the game at 50-50 on two free throws for Tusculum and Greg McIntosh (Indianapolis, IN) knotted the game for the last time at 52-52 on free throws with 5:09 remaining. Catawba would take the lead for good at 54-52 on two free throws by Jolly Manning (Rocky Mount, NC) with 4:41 left. A three-pointer by Brian Graves (Newport News, VA) gave the Indians a 57-53 edge with 3:15 to go, but a free throw by Douglas Tshomba (Germantown, WI) on each of two separate trips trimmed the Pioneer deficit to 57-55 with 11 seconds to play. Helgi Magnusson (Reykjavik, ICELAND) made two free throws for Catawba with 10 seconds left then Ewing connected on a three-pointer with six seconds left to bring Tusculum within 59-58. Magnusson hit one of two free throws with 1.6 seconds remaining for the final margin. Graves led Catawba with 13 points and added six rebounds, five assists and four steals. Chris Wooldridge (Norfolk, VA) scored a dozen points with five boards and three blocks before fouling out with 8:20 remaining. Cliff Charles (Newark, NJ) scored 16 to lead Tusculum, while Tshomba added 11 off the bench. The Pioneers held a 38-32 edge on the boards, but committed 17 turnovers. I thought we played a solid game, stated Catawba coach Jim Baker. We played smart and the guys executed our game plan. It was night and day from the way we have been playing the last couple of weeks. They out-worked us and beat us to the loose balls, said Tusuclum coach Duggar Baucom. They out played us. We're very disappointed, but hopefully we will learn from it. #####
