Quick Starts Key St. Aug Win Over Chowan at Catawba Classic

Posted November 16, 2012

— Saint Augustine’s University started fast in the first and second halves for an impressive 75-58 men’s basketball victory over Chowan University in the Catawba Classic at Goodman Gym on Friday, Nov. 16, 2012.

The Falcons (2-1 overall) never trailed in winning their second consecutive contest. Joel Watson (Fr./Smithfield, N.C.) scored a layup for a 17-7 lead in the opening six minutes and the Falcons never looked back. The lead was 42-25 at halftime before the Falcons began the second half with another spurt. Percy Woods (Sr./Washington, D.C.) opened the second half with a three pointer to ignite a 16-4 run. When the run ended, the score was 58-29 St. Aug with five minutes elapsed in the second stanza.

“It was a good win,” St. Aug Head Coach Lonnie Blow, Jr. said. “We played well, especially the first half. We jumped on them again in the second half and extended the lead. I was pleased with the start of the second half.”

Both St. Aug and Chowan (1-1) are in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, but the matchup was designated as a non-conference contest. The Falcons played as if it was a CIAA game, however. They were ready from the outset.

The Falcons shot 57 percent in the first half before cooling off to a very good 50 percent for the game. Joel Kindred (Jr./Raleigh, N.C.) scored 14 points but the points were distributed evenly. Chris Johnson (R-Jr./Hampton, Va.) and Woods both added 13 points and Akeem Anderson (Sr./Memphis, Tenn.) chipped in eight points as all but two players scored. Defensively, they limited Chowan to 35 percent shooting.

Nick Chamblee (Sr./Hampton, Va.) added eight assists and Joel Kindred pulled down a game-high eight rebounds. Woods added six boards for the Falcons, who outrebounded the Hawks 34-30 and outscored them 30-16 in the paint.

Chowan was led by Kyree Bethel with 13 points and Chris William with 11 points. The Hawks could not match the aggression of the Falcons, however.

“We played with a lot of energy and intensity,” Blow said. “We are just trying to improve and win games.”

The Falcons meet Paine in the Catawba Classic on Saturday, Nov. 17. The game begins at 2 p.m.
