What to Know

The Western Carolina Catamounts lost both of their matches to the Wofford Terriers last season on scores of 78-91 and 56-80, so they’re hoping to turn the tables this season.

Meanwhile, Wofford made easy work of the Samford Bulldogs on Wednesday and carried off an 87-64 win.

Western Carolina is now 8-9 while Wofford sits at 10-7. Two defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Catamounts are stumbling into the matchup with the 10th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 78.2 on average. The Terriers have experienced some struggles of their own as they have allowed their opponents to shoot 45.20% from the floor on average, which is the 47th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
