Late rally falls short for Red Hawks in loss to Storm

THOMASVILLE, N.C. — Despite a second-half rally, the Catawba Valley Community College men's basketball team dropped its second Region 10 game in a 83-74 loss to host Davidson County on Wednesday night.

The Red Hawks (3-4, 1-2 in Region 10) fell into an early 50-28 deficit at halftime after encountering some first-half foul trouble.

Despite trailing by 22 points, CVCC would work its way back to eventually tie Davidson County at 58-58 with just nine minutes remaining in the contest. Jonathan McFall led the second-half charge for Catawba Valley, scoring 15 of his game-high 21 points during the half.

However, the Storm continued to capitalize on more foul trouble by the Red Hawks, making 15-of-25 free chances during the second half, including six apiece from Jamarius Hairston And Tim Boulware, to seal Davidson County's win. Hairston led all scorers with 25 points.

Point guard Byron Sanders also reached double figures in scoring for CVCC with 13 points in Wednesday's game.

The CVCC men's basketball team is back in action Saturday, playing in the second game of a home doubleheader at the Tarlton Complex at 3 p.m. The Red Hawks face off against Pasco-Hernando (Fla.) — the first match up in men's basketball between the two schools since Nov. 19, 2016.

Tip off for Saturday's first game of the doubleheader is set for 1 p.m. at the Tarlton Complex. Admission is free.
