Men's Basketball Takes #3 Queens to Overtime
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Host Catawba fell just short on an upset bid of NCAA II third-ranked Queens on Wednesday night, falling 89-86 in overtime, in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action at Goodman Gym. Todd Withers’ three-pointer with six seconds to play provided the winning points as the Royals improve to 19-1 overall and 11-1 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians fall to 5-12 and 2-10.
Catawba led by seven with four minutes left in regulation. Queens whittled away at the deficit, pulling within two on a pair of free throws by Withers with 1:35 left. Catawba got a free throw from Jordan Barber before the Royals cut it to 79-78 on a bucket by Shaun Willett.
TJ Jeffers gave the Indians an 80-78 edge with 1:02 to go and Catawba had possession after a missed Queens three-pointer. A turnover with 19 seconds remaining led to a layup by Mike Davis to tie the game. Catawba only managed a desperation three-pointer at the end of regulation.
The Indians got layups by Barber and DJ Johnson to start the overtime period, but a three-pointer by Withers and a free throw by Ike Agusi knotted the score. A steal and layin by Jerrin Morrison had the Indians up 86-84 with 1:39 to go then Withers tied it after his own miss with 1:30 left.
Both teams turned the ball over in the final minute and Queens held for the final shot with Withers connecting from the top of the key. Catawba failed to get off a final shot.
Morrison led Catawba with 26 points, while adding eight rebounds six assists and six steals. Malik Constantine followed with 19 points and canned four three-pointers. Johnson tossed in 15 points and Barber had 13, both off the bench.
