Furman takes out 4 seed Virginia
Furman turns over Virginia with 5 sec left and hits a 3 with 2.4 left to win.

Great win for Furman and the Socon.

Fantastic win! I congratulate them. Now someone else gets a taste of the SoCon!

RE: Furman takes out 4 seed Virginia
Virginia can win it all or make an early exit. More often , an early exit.
I watched it live. It was exciting. I think I heard that Virginia player/coach failed to call a time out.

Congrats to the long-suffering Furman fans. I know we had some discussion about the SoCon not being as deep or as good this year. Nevertheless, our champion won a tournament game, so that’s a bit of redemption for the conference as a whole.

I'm honestly gonna hope Furman goes on a run and wins at least one more game.

They do good enough, bigger schools might come after their coach.

That and if they do well and show that the SoCon has some teeth, this might indirectly help ETSU in our coaching search if handled correctly.

Tony Bennett, who is a class act, certainly had respect for them and the coach going into that game. Yes - the SoCon is a traditional geographic, stable, academically respected, and financially realistic conference. If ETSU fields winning teams people will come and support playing in this league against its schools. Should ETSU try for the SBC in a long range athletics plan? In this rapidly changing college athletics environment- in ten years or so, who knows what college athletics will look like, what the SoCon, the SBC, C-USA, et al will look like.

Only thing I have issues with for the Sunbelt or Conference USA would be that from what I can tell, the biggest impact from moving to one of those conferences would be on the football team. Not sure about Conference USA, but moving up to the Sunbelt might not necessarily have an impact on basketball.

Conference USA isn't necessarily a shot at a multi bid conference to the NCAA, but they are a conference where the runner up might more consistently have a shot at an at-large bid to the NIT. Granted within the last decade, the SoCon did get two at-large bids in 2019 when Furman and UNCG both made it to the NIT.
