SoCon Basketball - Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018






In Tuesdays' games, Furman remained undefeated, while the Terriers fell to #2 Kansas.

Four games are on the schedule for Wednesday, all four are out-of-conference games, two of which are ACC opponents.



Tuesday's games - 

#25 Furman - 98   Elon - 77
ELON, N.C. -- Furman's Alex Hunter scored his 18 points in the second half leading the Paladins in their first game since the program's debut in the AP Top 25, to a 98-77 win over Elon. Matt Rafferty scored 18 points and Clay Mounce added 17 for the Paladins, who cracked the rankings this week thanks to an early-season resume that includes road victories over defending national champion Villanova and Loyola-Chicago, which made the Final Four last season.


Wofford - 47   #2 Kansas - 72
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas' Dedric Lawson scored 20 points to led #2 Kansas over Wofford 72-47 on Tuesday night.  Udoka Azubuike was injured after landing awkwardly on a block attempt midway through the first half, and coach Bill Self said the 7-footer will be out indefinitely. The Jayhawks again started the game sluggish and only led by three at halftime. A second-half push kept their undefeated season alive, as they outscored the Terriers 43-21 after the break going 26-6 in the final 10 minutes of the contest.
