Cullowhee, N.C. -
Despite inclement weather, both the Western Carolina men's and women's basketball teams will be in action on Saturday, as will the Catamounts' men's and women's indoor track & field squad. However, due to inclement weather projected this evening, WCU's tennis team will not make its scheduled trip to Raleigh for the Cats' 2005 season opener.

Also on Saturday, Western Carolina will welcome back its former men's basketball players and coaches for the annual Alumni Weekend. An alumni game is scheduled for 5:00 pm with a reception to follow in the Ramsey Center.
