The Wofford Terriers made a name for themselves last season after defeating the University of North Carolina (ranked #5) 79-75 in Chapel Hill, NC on 12/20/2017. The Tarheels were a 25.5 point favorite but could not stop the Terriers who were led by now senior Fletcher Magee who had 27 points and 0 turnovers in the upset. Wofford is currently 7-0 in conference (Southern) play and 15-4 overall with all losses to tournament-bound teams (Kansas, Mississippi St, Oklahoma, UNC). The Terriers are looking to make their 5th appearance in the NCAA Tournament after having last made it as a #12 seed in 2015. This team is led by seniors Fletcher Magee (G) and Cameron Jackson (F). Magee is 3rd in the nation in 3 point attempts (195) while shooting .369% from behind the arc. Jackson is averaging 15 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists per game. The Terriers utilize the bench often and have 9 players who average 12+ minutes per game.

*Player to Watch: Ryan Larson (G) is a freshman from St. Paul, MN who led his high school team (Cretin-Derham Hall) to it’s first title in 25 years. He is quick, has excellent court vision and is 2nd on his team in assists (44) despite averaging only 15 minutes/game. Larson is prone to turnovers (28) but makes up for it with steals (16).
