Wofford took care if its business in the Southern Conference title game Monday night and officially punched its ticket to March Madness. The Terriers will be a dangerous opening round opponent.

That noted, we await the fate of quality mid-majors like UNC-Greensboro and Furman (both from the Southern Conference), as well as Belmont and Lipscomb. At this point, all they can do is wait and hope things break their way.
