Cullowhee, NC - The Ramsey Center has become a very tough place to play for visiting teams. In an interview with the AC-T, Wofford coach Mike Young summed it up this way “I would rather go to hell,” he said, “than go to (expletive) Cullowhee."

The Catamounts ended two streaks on Saturday afternoon in their win over the Wofford Terriers in game two of a double header played in the Ramsey Center. The Cats ended Wofford's two-game win streak which included wins over ACC foe Wake Forest and the SoCon's Charleston. The Cats also ended their own two game losing slide. “We had some great shots, but we did not play well enough to win on the road,” said Wofford head coach Mike Young. “We gave ourselves a chance down three with the ball on a couple of occasions and we just could not get a shot down. Our shooting was not the story here - we could not get the stops on defense that we have been getting. There were too many second chance points and they beat us to some loose balls.”  Wofford has not won in Cullowhee since 2001, a stretch of seven games.

The Cats had four players in double figures, lead by Keaton Cole's 22 points, as the Cats never trailed in the game.
