SoCon Basketball Update (1-9-17)



Sunday's results.....
There was only one game on Sunday, it was the make-up from Saturday's inclement weather in Birmingham, AL.



Wofford at Samford
Walker's Tip-In At The Buzzer Lifts 'Dogs Past Wofford
With approximately four seconds remaining in overtime Sunday and the score deadlocked at 89-89, Samford's Christen Cunningham pulled up for a jumper in the lane and fired the possible game-winning shot. Cunningham's attempt rimmed out, but sophomore center Wyatt Walker grabbed the rebound with just under two seconds left and tipped it in for the decisive basket en route to the Bulldogs' thrilling 91-89 victory over the Wofford Terriers. Walker's game-winning basket helped Samford (12-5, 3-1 Southern Conference) defeat Wofford (6-11, 1-3 SoCon) at home in the Pete Hanna Center for just the second time in school history. The victory also snapped a six-game losing streak to the Terriers.
