Catamounts Claw Out 68-67 Win Over GSU Eagles

WCU Men’s Basketball stretches winning streak to 4 games including 3-0 in the SoCon!

The WCU Men’s Basketball team outlasted Georgia Southern University, 68-67, in a hostile environment inside Hanner Fieldhouse Saturday afternoon as the Catamounts remain unbeaten in Southern Conference play.

With the game tied for the tenth time, this time at 48 with 8:18 remaining, WCU strung together six straight points following a jumper and layup by Brandon Boggs and two Trey Sumler free throws to take a 54-48 lead a minute later. Georgia Southern trimmed the lead down to three points, 55-52, 30 seconds later, but James Sinclair, who led the Catamounts in scoring with 15 points playing an hour down the road from his hometown of Savannah, drilled his third triple of the game in front of the WCU bench to regain the six-point lead, 58-52, with 5:33 showing on the clock.

"I thought James Sinclair -- playing in front of his family and friends -- played real well for us today. He did not miss a shot there for a while," Hunter said of his junior guard. Sinclair started the game 4-for-4 from the field before finishing 6-of-8 overall and 3-of-3 from 3-point range.
