What to Know

The Western Carolina Catamounts are staying on the road on Sunday to face off against the East Carolina Pirates at 4 p.m. ET Nov. 14 at Williams Arena at Minges Coliseum. East Carolina will be strutting in after a win while the Catamounts will be stumbling in from a defeat.

The contest between Western Carolina and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons this past Friday was not a total blowout, but with Western Carolina falling 87-75 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. A silver lining for Western Carolina was the play of guard Travion McCray, who had 21 points along with six boards.

Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the game between East Carolina and the Canisius Golden Griffins this past Friday was still a pretty decisive one as the Pirates wrapped it up with an 83-71 victory at home.

Western Carolina is expected to lose this next one by 8.5. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 2-0 against the spread when expected to lose.

Western Carolina's loss took them down to 1-1 while East Carolina's victory pulled them up to 2-0. We'll see if the Catamounts can steal East Carolina's luck or if East Carolina records another win instead.
