Basketball: Basketball at WCU implodes

Both the men's and women's teams lost on Tuesday night, and neither game was nearly as close as either score might indicate. The women's team, after starting the season with a promising 3-0 start, has dropped two games straight to Big South opponents, most recently Coastal Carolina (66-56) prior to the Campbell loss (59-43). The men's team has been totally dominated in the first two games of the South Padre Island Invitational by two Iowa teams.   First it was Iowa State by a score of 92-60, then two days later, by Northern Iowa 59-39. These two losses, combined with a season opening beat-down, by a young South Carolina team, does not bode well for the Catamounts' 2011-12 season.
