Leading by only 11 at the half, the Cats build a 25 point lead early in the second half going on a 14-0 run holding the Spartans scoreless in the first six minutes of the half. The Cats also dominated on the boards, out rebounding the Lady Spartans 42-29.
"The team took a very tough loss today," UNCG coach Wendy Palmer said. "Western Carolina played an amazing game. Everything was falling for them. Everything was clicking, everything they did, the shots went in, they hustled, they came up with loose balls, so all the credit goes to Western Carolina. They played an amazing game." The Cats host Furman at 7 p.m. Monday night.
