It’ll be the Furman Paladins and Chattanooga Mocs in the SoCon conference tournament final, with a bid in the 2022 NCAA Tournament on the line. Here’s a look at how both teams stack up against each other, and how fans can catch Monday’s final.
Chattanooga: 26-7 (14-4 SoCon), 69 NET, 69 Ken Pom
Silvio De Sousa is likely the most known name across college basketball on Chattanooga, but the Mocs’ best player is Malachi Smith. He’s been an all-around star for this team and should continue to be a prominent factor in this conference tournament title game.
Furman: 21-11 (12-6 SoCon), 80 NET, 72 Ken Pom
The Paladins have a great trio to lean on as well, with Mike Bothwell, Jalen Slawson and Alex Hunter. Furman had to overcome a halftime deficit in the semifinal to make it to this point, so this team does have some very recent experience overcoming setbacks. Despite having a better record, Chattanooga was actually the underdog to Furman when it came to winning this tournament.
