Cullowhee, NC - The Catamounts travel off the mountain and down to the Piedmont on Thursday to play their lone regular season game against South Division foe Davidson. The Cats and Wildcats first met on the hardwood in back in 1977, and since that time, Western has an overall 20-36 record against the Wildcats. The Catamounts won in the single game last season, 81-73 which was played in Cullowhee.

“We have so many weapons,” sophomore De’Mon Brooks told the Charlotte Observer after the Wildcats romped over Georgia Southern on Jan. 7, and the Wildcats certainly have lived up to that proclamation. Jake Cohen scored a career-high 29 points in that game. Four other Wildcats have scored at least one 20-point game this season, one for De’Mon Brooks, two from Nik Cochran and one each from Chris Czerapowicz and J.P. Kuhlman. The free-throw line has been the key factor in most of  these 20 point games, as Davidson is the top team in the SoCon at the free throw line.  The Wildcats are hitting better than 80 percent of its chances from the free-throw line, and as we all know, the Cats are one of the top teams in the SoCon in sending their opponent to the free throw line.   Our key to a win, limit fouls and turnovers, as well as, hitting 3 pointers.

Good Luck Catamounts.
