CULLOWHEE, N.C. - Western Carolina head basketball coaches Larry Hunter and Kellie Harper will be the featured guest speakers at the Catamount Coaches' Luncheon Wednesday beginning at 11:45 am at the hospitality room, located in the Ramsey Center on the WCU campus.
Each week's luncheon will feature a buffet-style lunch beginning at 11:45 am and will last until approximately 1:00 pm. Head coaches from WCU's athletic programs will be the keynote speakers at each event offering insight into their seasons and "X's and O's" from their respective sport, as well as answering questions from those in attendance.
Harper and Hunter will go over the past week's games and give fans an in-depth look at the previous games and a preview of upcoming games.
Western Carolina women's basketball is coming off a two big wins. The Lady Catamounts downed rival UNC Asheville last Wednesday 89-74 and then traveled to Middle Tennessee and defeated the Blue Raiders 77-71 Sunday. The women will host Wake Forest Saturday with a tip off time set for 4:03 p.m.
The Western Carolina men's team host North Carolina Central on Wednesday at 7:03 p.m. The Catamounts suffered two heart-breaking losses in conference play - falling to Elon and then losing by two points, 86-84, at home to College of Charleston last Saturday.
There is an open invitation to everyone in the surrounding communities, but an RSVP is requested by the Friday prior to the next event to allow proper preparations to be made. The cost of the luncheon is $7.00 per person.
