The Wofford Terriers won’t be winning another regular season SoCon title but they have been playing well down the stretch with wins in seven of ten. The Terriers are looking to hold on to the 4th spot in the Southern with a bounce back from a 65-61 loss at North Carolina-Greensboro Monday as an eight point halftime lead crumbled under a second half Spartans rally. Wofford never found the shooting touch at 37% with a 6-26 mark on threes killing their chances. UNCG fired away at 49% with a few more field goals making the difference. Fletcher Magee led the Terriers attack with 16 points while Jaylen Allen and CJ Neumann netting ten points apiece with Neumann grabbing eight rebounds.
Furman are 23-9 ATS in their last 27 vs. Southern. The over is 23-9 in Wofford last 32 overall and Wofford are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the Terriers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 vs. Southern. Furman are 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings. I think this will be close and entertaining so I’ll grab the points…
