ALBANY, Ga. -- Catawba claimed its first win of the season with a 77-69 victory over host Albany State at the Ram Rising Men’s Basketball Tournament on Friday night at the West Campus Arena. The Catawba Indians improve to 1-2, while the Rams fall to 0-4.
Jerrin Morrison and Malik Constantine posted double-doubles to lead the Indians. Morrison tallied 23 points with 10 rebounds, while Constantine tossed in 21 points and grabbed a dozen rebounds. Jeremy McLaughlin also scored in double figures with 12 points and added seven rebounds.
Catawba never trailed and held a 39-29 lead at the break. The Indians would increase its lead to 16 early in the final half then held off a late Albany State rally.
Down 13 with just over four minutes to play, JaDon Davis and Rahdin Hughes hit on back-to-back three-pointers to cut the Catawba lead to 69-62. After a turnover, ASU pulled within 69-64 and then a layup by Hughes with 1:49 left cut the margin to 70-66.
Constantine, who went 8-of-9 at the line, sank a pair of free throws with 1:30 to go and two breakaway dunks by Morrison in the final 30 seconds iced the game. The Indians shot 40% from the field, while the Rams made just 29%. Catawba also enjoyed a 48-34 edge on the glass.
Hughes led Albany State with 20 points, while Davis added 17, canning five of nine from long range.
