College Sports

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Isaiah Tisdale scored 24 points and top-seeded East Tennessee State defeated upset-minded Wofford 72-58 to win the Southern Conference Tournament on Monday night and earn an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Tray Boyd added 11 points for the Bucs, who become only the fourth team in conference history to win 30 games.

It will be ETSU’s first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since 2017.

Seventh-seeded Wofford (19-16) was looking to become the first SoCon team since Clemson in 1939 to win four games to capture the conference tournament title after beating The Citadel, Furman and Chattanooga to reach the finals.
