Wofford To Be Host To Central Michigan Friday In C.I.T.

Wofford will debut in the Tournament Friday against Central Michigan in a 7pm game, the school announced Tuesday afternoon.

The announcement followed a 24-hour period of confusion.

Terriers officials initially expected a trip to Lynchburg, VA and a game with Big South Conference runner-up Liberty after Liberty's win over North Carolina A&T Monday.  That plan did not materialize.  As of Tuesday evening, the C.I.T. website had yet to update the bracket to reflect the CMU/Wofford game or, for that matter, Liberty's next opponent.

It will be the first meeting between the Terriers and Central Michigan. The Chippewas defeated IPFW, 94-89, in an opening round game on the road Monday night to improve to 20-14, their second 20-win campaign under head coach Keno Davis. 

Central Michigan is led by 6-6 forward Cecil Williams, who leads them with 15.1 points per game.  Guard Shawn Roundtree averages 15 points per game and two others also score in double figures. Roundtree had 14 points and nine assists in Monday night's win.

The Chippewas finished fifth in the six-team Mid-American Conference West Division. They fell in the quarterfinal round of the MAC Tournament to eventual champ Buffalo, 89-74, but have won four of their past five.
