    GREENVILLE, South Carolina — Lee Skinner scored 17 points and Wofford held off Furman 62-60 in the final minutes on Saturday to claim the Southern Conference regular season championship.

    Wofford (25-6, 16-2) has a first-round bye and plays its first tournament game in the quarterfinals on March 7th.

    Spencer Collins made a layup and Karl Cochran hit a 3 for a 53-45 Wofford lead with 1:29 remaining. The Paladins rallied within two with 22 seconds left, but an intentional foul call sent C.J. Neumann to the line on back-to-back possessions and he converted three of four.

    John Davis III and Devin Sibley made Furman's final 15 points, including Davis' 3 at the buzzer for the final margin. Davis scored a career-high 20 points for the Paladins (8-21, 5-13) and Sibley added 15.

    Skinner had 10 first-half points and finished 9 of 10 from the line.
