Team preview: Western Carolina
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
Last season was a tough one for Western Carolina, which had shown a six-win improvement in 2001-2002, only to fall back into the Southern Conference basement by the end of the year. Head coach Steve Shurina believes this season will take a very different direction.
"This is the year we begin to turn things around," he said. "This is the season we've been waiting for, when things start to happen."
