Winthrop faces Longwood on Sunday, March 6th, 2022 at Bojangles Coliseum for a college basketball Big South Conference Championship matchup.
Winthrop defeated Gardner-Webb in the semifinal of the conference tournament by the final score of 76-67. Winthrop is back in the Big South Championship after winning the conference last year and earning a 12 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Winthrop has a ton of experience., and although the Eagles are not the #1 seed in the Big South, it will not be surprising to see them as the favorites when the line is released. Winthrop is 23-8 overall this season and 14-2 in conference play. Winthrop's leading scorer is F D.J Burns Jr, who has scored 15.1 points per game for the Eagles. Winthrop has scored 75.8 points per game as a team and has shot the ball at a 49.0% clip from the field. Winthrop has also allowed 70.0 points per game to its opponents as well.
Longwood took down a pesky USC Upstate team in its semifinal matchup to punch its ticket to this championship matchup. Longwood, with a win, will head to the Big Dance for the first time in school history. A loss in this one sends Longwood to the NIT, as nonetheless, this has been an incredible season for a Longwood team that not many had on their radar going into this season. Longwood is 25-6 overall and 15-1 in Big South play. Longwood's leading scorer has been G Justin Hill, who has scored 14.3 points per game and has earned 4.0 assists per game as well. Longwood as a team has scored 76.2 points per game and has shot the ball at a 45.2% clip from the field. Longwood has also allowed 65.1 points per game to its opponents as well.
The line has not yet been released for this one, so be sure to check back soon for updates to the odds. This should be a great game between the top two teams in the conference. Longwood's season has been incredible and it would be great to see the Lancers get to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history, but they have to go through the usual suspects in the Big South and it is not going to be easy. Longwood had to erase a 16-point deficit to beat USC Upstate and needed OT to beat NC A&T. I think the Lancers' luck runs out and Winthrop earns the win here.
