Red Hawks’ win streak snapped on road by Bobcats

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The Catawba Valley Community College men's basketball team had its six-game winning streak snapped on Saturday afternoon in a 80-71 road loss against Bryant & Stratton College at Maury High School.

Jahleer Black paced CVCC (9-5, 4-3 in Region 10) with a career-high 23 points, while fellow sophomores Jonathan McFall and Sal-Bey Young scored 14 points apiece to help lead the charge for the Red Hawks.

Bryant & Stratton (6-8, 4-3 in Region 10) took a 46-29 lead at halftime of Saturday's Region contest, but Catawba Valley opened the second half on an 18-1 run, tying the game at 47-47 with just 12 minutes to go.

Despite that come-from-behind effort, the Bobcats were able to pull away down the stretch behind 17 points from Darrius Tunnell and 15 points from Darius Kemp to come away with the nine-point conference win.

The CVCC men's basketball team will attempt to start a new winning streak on Wednesday when it travels to Jamestown, N.C. to take on Guilford Tech in Region 10 action.

Tip off between the Red Hawks and Titans is set for 7 p.m. at the Mary Perry Ragsdale Family YMCA.
