CLINTON, S.C. (AP) - Harouna Mutombo led four Catamounts in double-figure scoring with 20 points as Western Carolina downed Presbyterian 80-73 on Thursday night.

The Catamounts (2-1) put together a 13-point lead twice inside the game's final five minutes, but Presbyterian hung around until the end.

The Blue Hose (2-2) trimmed the margin to five points on two separate occasions in the closing moments, but the Catamounts converted all eight free throw attempts to secure the victory.

It was the eighth straight win in the all-time series, which Western Carolina now leads 12-1.

Tawaski King finished a perfect 8-for-8 from the floor with a career-best 16 points. Keaton Cole drained three 3-pointers as a part of his 12 points, matching his season-high with three steals to pace the Catamounts.

Presbyterian's leading scorer, Al'Lonzo Coleman, finished with 18 points.
