Wofford College used a stifling defense to overcome a long second-half scoring drought to beat Appalachian State University 56-51 on Monday night for the Southern Conference Title and its first NCAA tournament berth. Wofford College is one of the smallest schools playing Division I basketball, with fewer than 1500 students (half of whom are men), and it’s known primarily for its rigorous academic standards.
While relatively few sports fans know very much about Wofford, looking back over this season, the Terriers should have been much more on everyone’s mind. Wofford was one possession away from winning at the University of Pittsburgh in the season opener (they lost by only 3 points), defeated both the University of Georgia and the University of South Carolina from the SEC, and went 15-3 during the regular season in a respected league.
Currently, Wofford is 26-8, winning its 13th straight game and 19 of its last 20 games. So there was a very large crowd of very happy supporters at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte (NC) last night, and Wofford’s tournament victory led to a giddy dancing and singing celebration on the floor.
With the win, the Terriers have earned the conference’s automatic bid to the 2010 NCAA Tournament. The 2010 men’s basketball selection show will be held Sunday, March 14 at 6:00 p.m. and will be televised on CBS.

After its decisive 77-58 win over Western Carolina University on Sunday night, the Wofford College basketball team has advanced to the Southern Conference Tournament Championship game for the first time in school history.

Wofford will play Appalachian State University in the Championship Finals, which will be televised nationally on ESPN2 and be played at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte at 9:00 pm on Monday night. The winner of that game will earn the conference’s automatic bid to the 2010 NCAA Tournament.
