Daily Dribbles- 2/1/13

--Hard to believe, but we've already reached February. Just one more month until March- the best month of the college basketball year. In 35 days, the SoCon Tournament gets underway. It's all happening.

--King Kresse has a nice wrap up on Wednesday night's Cougars win over Appalachian State.

--Furman is suddenly in pretty good position in the SoCon race. They are a half game up on Georgia Southern, a half game down to Appalachian State and UNCG, and tied with Chattanooga. They are ahead of Wofford and The Citadel. If the Paladins can beat The Citadel at home, suddenly, they would be 4-5 in the SoCon race. Then again, the Bulldogs win over Wofford has them a half game down on the Terriers. If they can win they can get back into the race for a slightly higher seed in the tourney. Furman-The Citadel is one of the more compelling games in the SoCon this Saturday. Who saw that coming?

--Western Carolina at Appalachian State and Samford at Elon are going to be two more compelling Saturday games. Elon is up by 1.5 games on Samford in the SoCon North race right now. Can the Phoenix basically put the North out of reach? Western and Appy need to win to stay in the bye race. Very good weekend slate.
