WCU is hot, having won 5 of their last 6 SoCon games. We will need to play well.

Road games are always a big challenge and this has historically been a tough venue for us over the years. Our A game will be required. We need this one, as we are fighting for seeding position in Asheville.

WCU is traditionally a very athletic team and Coach Hunter does a great job so this will be tough even before we consider the venue where wins have been tough to come by for the Terriers.

This is going to be a toughie up there in Cullowhee for sure. If the Terriers are rested and really get after Catty, we could get a much needed win!

Looking bad early. Giving up second chance baskets, fouling three point shooters, and unforced turnovers aren't going to get it done. This game is getting ugly quick as we are down 10. This is a hard place to come back in so we better do something to bridge the gap before halftime or we're done.

Magee just thit three threes in about 75 seconds to give the Terriers the lead. 27-25

Back to a 27-27 tie...much better! If Magee is not SoCon freshman of the year something is wrong.

Down three at halftime 30-27. This is not bad considering how we played overall. Magee is keeping us in the game. This building has never been kind to us. But we still have a great chance to pull one out on the road if we can play a better second half.

Horrendous officiating tonight compounds our sloppy play. Not sure how Western picks up 7 fouls in the first 7 minutes of the ball game and then doesn't get called with another foul until 30 seconds to go in the half. Simply terrible officiating. We need to continue to hit shots and rebound well. We tore up the offensive glass and we need to continue that in the second half.

Not shooting well overall, too many TO's, rebounding well.

Officiating always seems to be questionable these days...gotta play through it tough as it is sometimes.

I tuned in half way through the half and Gordon was already sitting with two fouls. Hopefully he can get it going in the 2nd.
