College basketball: Catawba women win again

     Staff report

HARROGATE, Tenn. — The shooting slump continued for Catawba’s women’s basketball team on Saturday — but so did the winning.

Catawba did just enough to prevail at Lincoln Memorial and survived a 266-mile road trip with a 60-56 South Atlantic Conference victory.

Catawba (12-1, 7-1) didn’t make a field goal in the last four minutes, but the Indians, who are tied for first place. also weren’t allowing much to the Railsplitters (5-7, 4-4).

Emily Phillips scored 13 off the bench. Lyrik Thorne scored 11.

Taisha DeShazo, Shemya Stanback and Madi Hallman, frequently the top three scorers for the Indians, shot a combined 3-for-23, but Catawba won, anyway.

Lincoln Memorial led 56-55 with 1:02 left, but Thorne made a free throw to tie it, and Phillips made go-ahead free throws.

Thorne made another free  throw with 9.5 seconds left for a three-point lead. Hallman made a clinching free throw for a four-point lead with one second left.

Catawba was 6-for-30 from the 3-point line, shot 31 percent from the field, and missed 16 of 34 free throws.

Catawba had a slight edge in the turnover battle (23-21). Catawba had a 23-12 advantage in offensive rebounds.

Catawba plays at Queens on Wednesday.
