Western Carolina Wins by 102 Points


Western Carolina had lost two straight and four of its last five. Those struggles ended abruptly on Tuesday night.

The Catamounts routed Toccoa Falls, 141-39, to become just the fourth Division I team to win a game by more than 100 points. The last DI team to do so was Long Island, which blasted Medgar Evers by 117 in 1997.

Western Carolina, not exactly a DI power, has dominated the small National Christian College Athletic Association school from Georgia, which has lost by at least 58 points in each of its matchups with the Catamounts since 2001.

Western Carolina led by a 72-17 margin at halftime and had all but three of its players score in double figures.

Oh yeah, The Dagger reported that student fans could exchange their ticket stubs for free tacos from a Mexican restaurant near campus if their team scored more than 100 points in a game.

No word on what they get if Western Carolina wins by more than 100.
