The Wofford Terriers visit the Furman Paladins in SoCon college basketball on Saturday.

The Wofford Terriers remained perfect in the SoCon with an 80-60 rout of second place UNC Greensboro as a six point home favorite.

Wofford has been the best team in the Southern by a large margin with a 15-0 conference record behind a monster offense and defense.

Fletcher Magee starred for the Terriers with a contest high 26 points while Nathan Hoover tossed in another 13 points.

Wofford saw 12 points, four pulls and four helpers from Cameron Jackson followed by Storm Murphy and Ryan Larson with nine points each.

The Furman Paladins remained one of the hottest teams in the SoCon following a 96-62 rout of visiting VMI as an 18.5 point favorite.

Furman has racked up six straight victories to land in third in the conference standings with three games left in the regular season.

Noah Gurley topped the Paladins scoring spree with 19 points with Mike Bothwell and Clay Mounce netting 13 points each with Mounce grabbing five boards.

Tre Clark and Matt Rafferty gave Furman 12 points each with Rafferty adding ten rebounds and seven helpers while Alex Hunter and Jordan Lyons combined for 17 points.

Wofford Terriers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and Wofford Terriers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

Furman Paladins are 34-16-1 ATS in their last 51 games following a straight up win and Furman Paladins are 45-22-1 ATS in their last 68 games overall.

Home team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings and over is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings in Furman.

Both teams can score a ton of points and I don’t see that being a problem here but I'll go for the upset...

Pick:
Furman +1.5

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
