While it hasn’t been talked about as much as, say, the Colonial or the Missouri Valley in this context, the Southern Conference is a mid-major conference that has of late been hit hard by conference realignment. That will continue with Davidson heading to the Atlantic 10 after this season and Elon becoming the second team in as many years to leave for the CAA.

Davidson finished its tenure in the SoCon with a great year, going 15-1 in conference play before losing to Western Carolina in overtime in the semifinals of the conference tournament. It was the third straight season where the Wildcats had the best mark in conference play, and they went on to the NIT, losing to Missouri in the first round.

RICHMOND, Va. – Wednesday night’s semifinal games in the Holiday on the Hardwood Classic are in the books. New Hampshire won the first game 68-66 over Cornell, and will take on host VCU in the title game after the Rams beat Wofford 75-66.

A few thoughts from Wednesday’s games:

  • Cornell isn’t far away. The Big Red lost for the sixth time by five or fewer points, which means they’ve been right there. Cornell doesn’t have the star power of a year ago, but they do have veterans who have won like Chris Wroblewski (14 points, six assists), Errick Peck (game-high 19 points) and Adam Wire (team’s leading rebounder).

When it comes to overall depth, the Big 12 this season may have been one of the strongest leagues in a long time. The conference sent seven of its 10 teams to the NCAA Tournament, the first time in 21 years and just the fifth time ever that a league sent 70% or more of its teams to the tourney.
