The St. Catharine College Patriots, 0-5, dropped the first game of the season to Lambuth 85-77 due to a big disparity in rebounding. Monday night J.T. Burton’s team traveled to Jackson, Tennessee with a chance to improve their board work and redeem the season opening setback.
But, as Yogi says, it was déjà vu all over again as the Eagles won the rebounding battle 35-29, and the game 84-61. While the rebounding margin was much less than the 27 that the Patriots were outrebounded in the first contest, the offensive caroms were still a problem as Lambuth collected 17 off the offensive glass.
The Eagles, 3-2 took a 51-24 lead at halftime but St. Catharine did regroup to outscore the home team by four points in the second half. Victor Garcia led the Patriots in scoring with 26 and Jesse Beavers added 10.
St. Catharine will be at Alice Lloyd tonight for a 7:00 game and will visit Berea Saturday. Monday they travel to Lima, Ohio to play the University of Northwest Ohio and Tuesday they are at Wright State-Lake in Ohio.
