The Catamounts are in reset mode after 13-year head coach Larry Hunter stepped down in March. Mark Prosser was hired a few weeks later and brings a solid resume in having coached at four programs before WCU. Mike Amius returns for his senior year – the JUCO transfer from North Platte (Neb.) Community College led the team in scoring last year at 12.7 ppg, and he also reeled in 5.6 rpg. Western Carolina said goodbye to six seniors, and that may open up some looks for incoming freshman Josh Cottrell, a guard who averaged better than 27 ppg in his last two years in high school.
