The Wofford Terriers (16-12, CONF 8-7) and Furman Paladins (22-6, CONF 12-3) face off in a Southern Conference showdown at Timmons Arena. The Terriers knocked off the Paladins by 14 points earlier in the season.

The Paladins look like they can make the NCAA tournament, and a win in this game would be a big statement. Coming into this game Furman has won seven of the last eight games, with the one loss coming in their last game against ETSU. Furman scored only 66 points in the last game and that led to a loss.

The Paladins are the better team but Wofford is an experienced team and they are going to rise to the occasion here.The Terriers might not do enough to win the game, but they will cover the spread.
