Men's Basketball Falls to Hot-Shooting Wingate
SALISBURY, NC -- Wingate got 24 points from Jaime Vaughn (Tallahassee, FL) and cruised to a 93-71 victory over host Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Goodman Gym. The Bulldogs improve to 11-10 overall and 7-4 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 5-14 and 2-9.
Wingate gave up the opening basket to the Indians then took the lead on Paidrick Matilus’ (Boynton Beach, FL) three-pointer at the 19:00 mark the Bulldogs never trailed again. Consecutive three-pointers by Keon Moore (Colerain, NC/Bertie HS) helped Catawba cut a 20-12 deficit to 20-18 midway through the second half, but it was all Bulldogs after that.
Vaughn capped an 11-0 run by Wingate on a pair of free throws to push the margin to 35-21 and Chase Smith’s (Upper Marlboro, MD) three-pointer gave the Bulldogs their biggest lead of the half at 38-23 with 4:28 to go. Catawba closed the gap to nine before Wingate took a 42-32 edge at the break.
Vaughn had four points to start the second half for Wingate and Matilus added another three-pointer as the Bulldogs went up 49-35. The lead swelled to 21 at 69-48 following a three-pointer by Eddie Lewis (Rocky Point, NC) and Vaughn pushed the margin to 30, at 78-48, on a three-pointer with 8:09 remaining. Wingate built its largest margin of 36 points at 87-51 with 5:11 left.
