Women’s basketball: Catawba women roll vs. Lions

SALISBURY — Catawba’s women’s basketball team finished a perfect, three-game homestand with a convincing 85-72 win against Mars Hill on Saturday at Goodman Gym.

Bri Johnson went 9-for-9 at the free-throw line and scored a career-high 26 points for the Indians (9-6, 6-4 SAC) to offset 30 points by Mars Hill standout Camille Glymph.

Catawba is still tied for fifth in the South Atlantic Conference, but the Indians have solidified themselves as an upper-half team in the 12-team league.

Catawba led all the way, but the Lions (5-10, 3-7) trailed by only four points early in the second half.  A 13-0 run by the Indians that began with two Johnson free throws with 13:48 remaining put Catawba in command. That run included eight points by Johnson, a three-point play by Chloe Bully and a layup by Jada Huntley.

Bully shot 4-for-5 on 3-pointers and scored 19 points. Huntley came off the bench for 10 points and 10 rebounds.

Catawba shot 51.5 percent in the second half and completed a season sweep of the Lions.

Catawba plays at Wingate at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Catawba won the first meeting with the Bulldogs 67-55.

 

MARS HILL (72): Glymph 30, Espinosa 11, Wilmoth 8, Chavis 6, Leroy 6, Stevens 5, Brown 4, Comer 2.

CATAWBA (85): Johnson 26, Bully 19, Huntley 10, Rogers 9, Greer 8,  Richardson 7, Dixon 3, S. Brown 3, Newbold, Ucinski, Franklin.
