MARS HILL, N.C. -- Catawba put a good note to the end of its men’s basketball season with a 103-94 win at Mars Hill on Saturday afternoon at Stanford Arena. Lone senior Jerrin Morrison went out in style has he canned 33 points in leading the Catawba Indians. Catawba finishes its season at 11-15 overall and 7-13 in the South Atlantic Conference. Mars Hill finishes at 4-24 and 1-19.

Morrison hit on 13 of 22 shots and was 6-for-10 from behind the arc. He finishes his career as the school’s #4 all-time scorer with 1,781 points. Carter Phillips tacked on 17 points off the bench, while Malik Constantine collected a double-double with 14 points and 11 boards.

Behind Morrison’s 21 first-half points, Catawba led virtually the entire 20 minutes. The Indians build as much as a 12-point lead and took a 50-44 edge to the break.

The lead was gone just over a minute into the second half. Two baskets by Bennett Wilson around a three-pointer by Luke Van-Rijn put Mars Hill on top 51-50. Catawba responded quickly, going on a 15-2 run to restore the 12-point bulge. A Jordan Barber three-pointer started the run with Constantine adding a three-point play and Morrison canning a three-pointer.

Mars Hill got within four with 13 minutes left, but each time the Lions go close the Indians ran the lead back to double digits. The lead grew to as many as 15 six minutes remaining.

Both teams shot well, Mars Hill at 53% and Catawba at 51%, and each committed just nine turnovers. Catawba held a 45-27 edge on the boards and outscored the Loins 21-4 on second-chance points. The Indians had 13 offensive rebounds to three for Mars Hill.

Wilson put in 35 points for Mars Hill, hitting on 14-of-19 shots. Justen Hartfield added 21 and Van-Rijn 14. All five Lion starters reached double figures, but Mars Hill had just one point from its bench, where Catawba got 39 from its non-starters.
