NEWBERRY - Following a 108-101 victory on Tuesday evening in Salisbury, N.C. against the Catawba Indians, the Newberry College men's basketball team travels to the high country for a non-conference matchup at Southern Wesleyan with tipoff scheduled for 7 p.m.

Against the Indians, Newberry shot 50% from the field including 16 buckets from downtown en route to the comeback victory. Demarkus Smith led the way for the Scarlet and Gray tying a career-high 24 points inclduing 7-of-10 from the charity stripe. James Stepp set a career-high in points with 18 as he shot 6-of-9 from behind the arc.

Unlike the game against Brevard, Newberry had to battle back against Catawba in the final minutes as they used a 15-5 run to take a seven point lead at 102-95. In that stretch the Wolves went a perfect 6-of-6 from distance including two from Stepp to begin the stretch.

Looking ahead to the Warriors, who enter Friday's contest with only win on the season having defeated Lees-McRae 79-78 on November 19, 2014. They are led by Cameron Solomon who averages 18.0 points per game and Buster Walker who averages 10.7 points per game along with 4.7 rebounds per game. The Warriors only average 68.0 points per game compared to the Wolves' 92.0 points.
