18_MBB_McLaughlinJFMU

NEWBERRY, S.C. -- Host Newberry jumped out to an early 15-point lead and held off a late Catawba rally to claim a 92-84 win in South Atlantic Conference men’s basketball action on Wednesday night at Eleazer Arena. The Wolves improve to 14-13 overall and 8-11 in the SAC. The Catawba Indians fall to 10-15 and 6-13.

Leading 10-7, Newberry used a 14-2 run to go on top 24-9 just over eight minutes into the game. The lead would grow to 20 late in the half before the Wolves settled for a 51-34 lead at the break.

The lead went back to 20 in the opening two minutes of the second half before Catawba charged back. The Indians outscored Newberry 20-4 over a five and half minute span to close within 58-54 with 12:52 remaining.

The Wolves appeared to have weathered the storm as a three-pointer by James Stepp gave the hosts a 78-63 edge with 7:39 left. Catawba put together one last spurt, holding Newberry to three points over the next three and half minutes and cut the margin to 81-77 on a three-pointer by Jordan Barber with 4:10 remaining.

Down nine with just over a minute to play, a three-pointer by TJ Jeffers and a layup by Jeremy McLaughlin cut it to 88-84 with 42 seconds left. Newberry was perfect on four free throws in the final 22 seconds to get the win.

McLaughlin had a huge game for the Indians with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Jerrin Morrison followed with 17, while Malik Constantine added 11 and Carter Phillips 10. Stepp produced 27 points for Newberry. Marshall Lange added 17 and Rob Valentine picked up 15 points and nine rebounds.

Newberry shot just 39%, but went 15-of-41 behind the arc and were 25-of-29 (86%) at the line. Catawba connected on 47% of its shots, but only had eight three-pointers and were 12-of-25 (48%) from the free throw line.

With the loss, Catawba cannot qualify for the SAC Tournament. The Indians will end its season on Saturday afternoon in a 4 pm tipoff at Mars Hill.
