Battling the majority of the crowd, the country and the small school coming off its first-ever NCAA Tournament win, the second-seeded Wildcats destroyed the dreams of seventh-seeded Wofford, and escaped a riveting back-and-forth fight with a 62-56 win in Saturday's Midwest Region second-round matchup at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena. They're on TV all the time. "I think the 3-point (shooting) overshadows exactly how good of a system team they are". They got inside guys that are effective too.
Seton Hall is far less flashy, and they'll likely look to slow the game down, rather than going toe-to-toe with Wofford. "But we're welcoming the challenge".
He hit another four throughout the rest of the second half, giving him 158 for the year to pull into a tie for the second-most in a single season, four behind the record set by Stephen Curry during his sophomore year at Davidson from 2007-08, according to Sports Illustrated.
"We haven't had a lot of close games". I thought he did a fabulous job on Herro. "It just took a terrible performance by me and we lost". Next possession, next best action.
"Really, really neat. Really neat", Wofford coach Mike Young said. You're not trying to lift their spirits.
"First of all, we selected a damn good team", White said. "That's a big deal". "I go over often to watch film". I was just focused on doing whatever I could to help us continue to stretch our lead and win down the stretch. We know that's what it's going to be (Saturday).
Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard said Wofford is a legitimate NCAA team with plenty of talent. A lot of teams have done that to me before, and we've found ways to get around it.
The Wofford Terriers showed just how explosive they can be, as they ran away with that game against Seton Hall in about a three minute stretch where the outside shot wouldn't miss. Hoover picked up the slack though, with 11 first-half points.
"I'm still kind of in shock", Magee said. I'm proud of how hard everyone played and how much they were into it. "I wish them best of luck in their journey". "They just chased, and they knew they couldn't let up in this game or they were going to score baskets because it's how they play".
