Wofford secured a spot in the championship game by downing East Tennessee State 81-72 in Sunday's semifinals. The Terriers (28-4) led 37-30 at halftime and did not relent after the break. Wofford shot 32-of-54 from the field, 10-of-18 on 3-point tries plus 7-of-18 at the free throw line.

College Basketball Betting Trends
The Spartans are 4-0-1 ATS in their last five neutral site games. UNC Greensboro is 3-1-1 ATS in its last five Southern Conference games.
The Terriers are 4-0 ATS in their last four neutral site games. Wofford is 10-1 ATS in its last 11 games overall.
The Terriers have been on a mission all season and I can't see it stopping here. They have also throttled UNC Greensboro twice this season, 72-43 on the road and 80-50 at home. While the Spartans have fared well against almost every other opponent, they are probably not going to flip a switch to that extent and figure out how to beat Wofford tonight. Go with the favorites to win handily.
