Both Catamount Basketball teams closed out 2011 with big road loses. The women fell to No. 21 Vanderbilt, 81-36 and the men fell to NC State by a score of 82-55. Both are major losses by wide margins for the two programs hoping to make big strides in their out of conference schedules, but it was not to be. The WCU men return to SoCon play against preseason North Division favorite, Chattanooga (6-8, 0-2 SoCon), on Thursday, Jan. 5, at the McKenzie Arena, while the women play their final non-conference game on Monday, January 2, 2012, at USC Upstate.
