CVCC Women's Basketball Downs Louisburg

Written by

The 17th-ranked Catawba Valley Community College women’s basketball team built a 15-point halftime lead and held off a late charge by host Louisburg to pick up an 82-78 road Region X victory on Thursday night.

Freshman forward Zharia Brown paced the Red Hawks (18-4, 13-1 in Region X) with 16 points in Thursday’s conference win — the seventh-straight victory for Catawba Valley.

Sophomore guard Shaniya Lester added 14 points for CVCC, and Red Hawk teammates Joyous Wilson (13 points), Jada Reid (13 points) and Nikkyana McCaskill (11 points) also reached double figures in scorings.

Paced by 12 points from Lester, CVCC led 46-31 at halftime against the Hurricanes (17-4, 12-4 in Region X).

However, Louisburg chipped into its deficit, and trailed by just nine points heading into the fourth quarter.

The Hurricanes scored 25 fourth-quarter points — led by six points each from guards Milequa Eason and Kaila Thompson — to make it a close ball game late.

Despite that effort, Nikkyana McCaskill scored seven points of her own in the fourth quarter to help the Red Hawks hold on for the crucial victory in a game featuring teams currently ranked second and third in Region X.

Shontai Totten and Teana Lewis both scored 17 points to lead the Hurricanes.

The CVCC women’s basketball team returns to action on Saturday for a road conference game at Wake Tech. Tip off in Raleigh, N.C. is slated for 2 p.m.

Sophomore Isaac Johnson (Charlotte, N.C./Providence Day) tallied his second double-double of the season, but the Appalachian State men's basketball team fell 77-66 inside the Holmes Center to South Alabama on Thursday evening.

Isaac Johnson finished the game with 13 points and a team-high 12 rebounds. He posted a near double-double in the second half alone with 11 points and nine rebounds. It also marks the third double-double of his career.

Senior Griffin Kinney (Delaware, Ohio/Fork Union Military Academy) added a team-high 19 points on 8-of-11 (72.7 percent), nine rebounds (four offensive) and a season-high tying four assists. Junior Tyrell Johnson (Atlanta, Ga./Stephenson) chipped in 10 points and a season-high tying seven rebounds.

Josh Ajayi recorded a double-double for South Alabama (14-12, 7-6 SBC) with game-highs of 26 points and 14 rebounds. Rodrick Sikes added 24 points.

South Alabama opened the game strong and used an early 8-0 run to build a 17-6 lead with 13:17 left in the first half.

The Jaguars would push their lead to 27-16 at the 6:29 mark of the first half. From there, the Mountaineers (11-16, 6-8 SBC) would close the half on a 16-4 run to take a 32-31 lead into the break.

The second half was tight throughout, with the Jaguars using a 6-0 spurt to build a 62-57 lead with 4:40 remaining.

South Alabama would push its lead to 69-62 with 2:58 to play on a three-pointer from Jordan Andrews.

Trailing 70-63, junior Ronshad Shabazz (Raleigh, N.C./Huntington Prep) drained a trey to bring the Apps within four points with 1:16 to go.

From there, the Jaguars would score seven straight points from the charity stripe to open a 11-point advantage and put the game away.

App State went 23-of-57 (40.4 percent) from the field, while South Alabama was 24-of-57 (42.1 percent). The Black and Gold won the rebounding battle 39-36 and scored 18 second chance points on 10 offensive rebounds.

The Mountaineers will welcome Troy to the Holmes Center in another key Sun Belt showdown at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. App State will be hosting a Hoops for Hope Game to benefit Access to Success, who will be collecting new or like new shoes to provide sustainable programs that generate positive change for Nigerian children and their communities through education, faith and sports. Fans are also encouraged to stop by the table to enter to win a team autographed basketball. A bonus ticket will be rewarded with donation of a pair of shoes.

In addition, Saturday is also youth day. All youth ages 12 and under will be admitted into the game for free. Mountaineer basketball alum Omar Carter will be on hand for the Healthy Heard Collaborative, which will promote cardiovascular health in the High Country community. At halftime, the Appalachian State football team will also be honored for their 2017 season.

The second time around, Appalachian State University women's basketball (7-18, 5-9 SBC) needed overtime and was able to pull out a close and thrilling 57-56 triumph over third-place South Alabama (15-9, 8-5 SBC) on Thursday evening inside the Holmes Center.

The Mountaineers snap a three-game skid and a four-game losing streak to the Jaguars, while the Apps improve to 4-1 in their last five home games.

LaPresha Stanley (Rockledge, Fla./Rockledge) came through once again with a game-high 17 points and tied a career-high with nine off the glass. The freshman for App scored 10 of her points at the free throw line while adding three assists. Nicola Mathews (Adelaide, Australia/College of Central Florida) stuffed the stat sheet with 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting from the field with a season-high seven rebounds and a game-high five assists. Bayley Plummer (Thomasville, N.C./East Davidson) put in another consistent effort with her league-leading 11th double-double of the season, snagging a game-best 17 rebounds with 10 points and adding three swats. Plummer showcased another solid defensive effort against one of the league's top centers in Chyna Ellis. Plummer helped limit Ellis to 12 points on 4-of-17 shooting.

For the second time in as many matchups, the game came down to the wire. This time, App was able to pull it out with timely defensive stops and late free throw shooting despite going 19-of-32 at the line.

After Plummer hit two at the free throw line to give the Mountaineers a 44-40 lead with 6:57 left in the game, Ellis started an 8-0 surge with back-to-back 3-pointers en route to giving USA a 48-44 advantage with 1:17 left on the clock. Like last week where Stanley brought the Apps back to force overtime against Coastal Carolina, the leading scorer for App was up to her clutch antics again scoring the final five points for the Black and Gold. After hitting a layup to bring App to within one possession, 48-46, the Jaguars went 1-2 at the line to push the lead to 49-46. With 13 seconds left, Stanley rose up for what was the most pivotal shot of the game and connected to tie up the contest at 49-all. South Alabama had an attempt to tie up the game, but App came away with a stellar defensive stop before App's game-winning attempt with 0.9 seconds left on the clock had fallen short.

It was a back-and-forth affair in the final five minutes of the game as neither team held the lead by more than two points. Appalachian scored all eight of its points from the charity stripe including three straight free throws from Stanley that turned a 54-52 deficit into a 55-54 edge with 1:35 remaining. After Stanley came away with a big steal, she was fouled hard and had to go out of the game. Lainey Gosnell (Demorest, Ga./Habersham Central) shot the first of what turned into four foul shots one possession, hitting one attempt to put App head by two points. Antoinette Lewis drew a foul on the ensuing possession but missed both free throws. Following a 1 for 2 trip at the line from Stanley, Lewis finished drew the and-1 on a layup and with the chance to tie up the game. She missed the tying attempt, and Plummer corralled the board for the victory.

Both teams struggled from the floor shooting under 30 percent. Appalachian harassed USA into tying a season-low shooting 24.1 percent from the field and 7-of-38 (18.4 percent) from beyond the arc. In both games against USA, the Apps shut down the 3-point attack as the Jaguars were just 9 for 57 (15.7 percent). Also, USA's two leading scorers coming into the game in Ellis (14.4 ppg) and Savannah Jones (12.7 ppg), scored just 14 combined points and 5-of-27 from the floor.

App State delivered the first punch opening up with a 12-1 lead in the first 4:37 of the contest thanks to a 4-of-5 start spearheaded by Mathews' spurt with eight points. The defense wouldn't allow the visitors to hit a field goal until the 4:46 mark, missing their first eight shot attempts. App stayed on top of USA with Gosnell's layup pushing the pace to 18-7 at the end of the first quarter.

The Jaguars closed the deficit to six, 19-13 before App responded with an 8-1 burst of its own capped off by a Maya Calder (Landover, Md./National Christian Academy) layup. The lead grew as large as 15, 31-16 when Stanley found a wide-open Gosnell from deep. Appalachian's lead wouldn't dip below 10 points as it claimed a 33-22 edge going into the break.

USA slowly crawled back into the contest outscoring App, 14-8, in the third quarter and trailed by five, 41-36, going into what was an exciting fourth quarter.

App State turned the ball over 18 times for 25 points and allowed 26 offensive rebounds, but outscored the Jaguars by 10 at the charity stripe.

The Mountaineers will look to end the weekend at 2-0 and match last season's Sun Belt win total when they face Troy at 1 p.m. on Saturday in the annual Play4Kay game.
