Catawba’s basketball teams travel to Anderson on Saturday.


Catawba’s women open the doubleheader in the Abney Center at 2 p.m. Catawba (10-10, 8-8 SAC) has dropped its last three road games.

Catawba is 7-1 all-time against Anderson and beat the Trojans 67-59 at Goodman Gym on Jan. 4 behind 18 points by Mallary Clay.

Chloe Bully (14.2 ppg) leads the Indians in scoring and ranks third in program history in 3-pointers with 165.

Anderson is 12-10 overall and 8-8 in the SAC.

• Catawba’s men (6-14, 6-10) have six league games left and currently reside in ninth place in the SAC. Eight teams qualify for the league tournament. Catawba’s schedule is favorable — three straight home games after the trip to Anderson — but the Indians have to win at least four of their last six to have a realistic chance to make the tournament. One of those six is on the road at league-leading Lincoln Memorial, and an upset in that one would be a tall order.

Catawba scored 106 points in its most recent outing and got 35 points from guard Elon Edwards and a near triple-double from big man Tyrece Little to pound Tusculum.

Little, a junior who set Catawba’s school record for blocks this season, is only 14 points away from 1,000 for his career.

Anderson drilled Catawba 78-55 when the teams met at Goodman Gym in January, but Anderson (16-6, 11-5) hasn’t played as well recently as it did earlier in the season. Anderson guard Chandler Hash is the SAC’s scoring leader.

The men’s game tips at about 4 p.m. WSAT-1280 will broadcast the doubleheader.
