McLaughlin's Career-High Helps Men's Basketball Top Anderson
ANDERSON, S.C. -- Catawba rallied from a 10-point deficit midway through the second half to grab a 77-65 win against host Anderson in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Saturday afternoon at the Abney Center. The Catawba Indians improve to 7-13 overall and 4-11 in the SAC, while the Trojans fall to 7-15 and 5-9.
Anderson led 54-44 with just over 10 minutes to play and 59-51 with 8:09 left before Catawba stormed back. Jordan Barber started the rally with a three-pointer and after a Malik Constantine layup the Indians trailed just 61-60 with 6:46 remaining.
Jeremy McLaughlin, who had a career-high 23 points, tied the game at 62-all with 5:15 to go. McLaughlin’s dunk put the Indians up for good at 65-64 and the game swung after he took a charge from Trojan guard Randall Shaw, who objected to the call and was whistled for a technical foul. Catawba reeled off the next 12 points to push its lead to 77-64.
