No. 4 Red Hawks sink Sea Devils for 4th Region 10 win

HICKORY, N.C. — The fourth-ranked Catawba Valley Community College women's basketball team overcame a slow start to earn a hard-fought 75-63 Region 10 victory against Cape Fear on Saturday at the Tarlton Complex.

A.J. Davis and Camari Jeter led the Red Hawks (4-1, 3-1 in Region 10) with 17 points each, while Kelis Carmon added 16 points in the win.

CVCC started Saturday's conference tilt with a nine-point deficit, and Catawba Valley missed its first six attempts from 3-point range.

Fighting back from down 18-9 in the first quarter, the Red Hawks powered back to start the second quarter on a 15-1 run before taking a 37-27 halftime lead. Jeter led the second-quarter run with nine points.

Cape Fear would eventually close to within just a single point in the fourth quarter before Catawba Valley re-extended its advantage on the way to a double-digit conference win.

The CVCC women's basketball team returns to action on Monday with a matinee conference contest against Bryant & Stratton. Tip off is set for 1 p.m. at the Tarlton Complex.
