Following that the Cougars headed back up to North Carolina for their Western Carolina match up. The Catamounts beat the Cougars, 59-45.
The Catamounts were leading by 17 points taking away the Cougar’s five point lead they established early in the game. The Cougars, however, were able to bring the game down to six points before the end.
Collectively the team was able to force 18 turnovers from Western Carolina and managed to pick up 11 steals from the Catamounts. Leading the Cougars in points was Latisha Harris with 15.
The Cougars play again today in a home game against Davidson at 2p.m. in the TD Arena.
