The Catamounts

The record doesn't indicate so, but Western Carolina isn't a bad team. The Catamounts return seven players from a team that lost to Davidson in double overtime in the Southern Conference championship game with a berth in the NCAA tournament at stake. The Illinois guards will have their hands full with Trey Sumler and the post players with big man Tawaski King. "They're going to be tough, they're physical, very blue collar," Groce said. "They're gonna screen you, they're gonna cut hard."
