The Cats win at McAlister Field House, now 3-0

Western Carolina halted a three-game losing streak this season, and a four-game road losing skid against The Citadel, with a 72-55 Saturday night victory at McAlister Field House over the Bulldogs.

The Catamounts have improved to a 3-0 to start the Southern Conference schedule, just the fourth time since joining the SoCon that the Catamounts have won their first three games of a season.

Leading by seven, at the six minute mark, the Catamounts outscored The Citadel 18-to-6 over the next five minutes to take a 19 point lead. The Catamounts converted 16 Bulldog turnovers into 16 points, and won the battle of the boards, 35-to-24.

WCU finished with 18 offensive rebounds - matching its second-best performance of the season - converting them into 17 second-chance points.

The Catamounts go out of conference on Monday night, hosting host Warren Wilson to tip-off its longest home stand of the season to date. The Catamounts and Owls square-off for just the second time ever, Jan. 7 in the Ramsey Center with a 7:00 pm tip-off.
