The Wofford Terriers travel to Belk Arena to take the hardwood with the Davidson Wildcats.
Wofford has been white hot with nine consecutive victories but it appears their season ending run will likely fall short of winning the SoCon title. The Terriers started off fast and rolled to a 70-50 rout of visiting Furman which has the team in ine for a second place finish. Wofford sank half their shots on the way to a 19 point lead at the break and were never in danger. The defense was just as strong with 39.5% shooting allowed and 15 forced turnovers while the entire nine man rotation scoring with Karl Cochran tossing in a game high 23 points with Spencer Collins and Eric Garcia adding nine points each.

Davidson is in the driver's seat as far as winning the conference crown is concerned with a two game lead with three to play. The Wildcats have generally been impressive with nine straight wins with strong contributions from both ends of the floor. An 83-76 decision over the Citadel on Monday might have locked up the conference title with 48% shooting and ab 11-21 performance from long range over coming the Bulldogs 50% marksmanship. De'Mon Brooks paced the offense with 21 points and six yanks with Brian Sullivan and Tom Droney netting 15 points each followed by 13 point efforts from Tyler Kalinoski and Chris Czerapowicz.
I think these are the two best teams in the SoCon with Davidson the likely regular season champ. They'll win this too but I believe the Terriers are no slouch and put up a fight so give me the points...
