Catawba, Livingstone push games back to Sunday

Staff report

SALISBURY — Both local colleges have postponed Saturday’s scheduled home games, pushing them back just one day.

Catawba and Livingstone had conference doubleheaders scheduled for Saturday, but the winter storm which was expected to arrive Friday evening has forced the games to be moved to Sunday.

Game times are the same — 2 p.m. for the women’s contests and 4:00 for the men’s tilts.

Catawba will be hosting SAC opponent Brevard on Sunday at Goodman Gym, while Livingstone welcomes in CIAA foe Virginia State at New Trent Gym.

The Catawba women’s team is tied for second place in the SAC at 6-1 (9-3 overall). Brevard is 1-6 and 5-6. The Lady Indians defeated Queens on Wednesday night, 81-45.

On the men’s side, Catawba is 3-4 in the SAC and 9-4 overall. The Tornados are last in the league at 0-7 and 2-11 in all games. The Indians lost to undefeated and nationally third-ranked Queens on Wednesday, 83-77.

Livingstone is coming off a Thursday night, doubleheader sweep of Elizabeth City State, both Blue Bears’ teams getting their first CIAA win. The women played their most complete game of the season, winning 88-49.

The men’s team won, 72-68, over ECSU and is now 1-2 in the conference and 4-8 overall. Virginia State is 2-1 and 10-3. In the women’s game, Livingstone will bring in a 6-7, 1-2 mark into the contest while the Spartans are 11-2 and 3-0.

The Virginia State teams won a doubleheader at Winston-Salem State on Thursday night.

Livingstone is also home on Monday night, hosting another CIAA doubleheader — against Chowan, beginning at 5:30.

Catawba travels to Wingate and Lincoln Memorial next week.
