Cats fall to Wright State

With five players in double figures, Wright State posted a 85-77 win over Western Carolina Saturday afternoon at WSU's Nutter Center.

Once again, Catamount fouls played a major role in the game outcome. Tawaski King and James Sinclair both fouled out, Trey Sumler and Justin Browning both ended the game with four fouls, while Hall, Tankelewicz, and Brummitt committed 3 each. All total, the Catamounts committed 21 personal fouls, resulting in 40 attempts at the free throw line for Wright State resulting in 29 points from the charity strip. Foul trouble resulted in King only playing 18 minutes.

Again, sluggish shooting in the first half (FG 33% & 3FG 25%), put the Cats down 9 points that the Cats just could not overcome in the second half, even with improved shooting (FG 49% & 3FG 47%).

The Catamounts continue their three-game road trip at Coastal Carolina on Wednesday, December 4 before heading back to Ohio for a game at Cleveland State on Monday, December 16.
