Why Wofford can cover
Wofford is a potent shooting team, posting an effective field goal percentage of 53.2 percent. The Terriers are converting 53.6 percent of their 2-point shots and 35.2 percent of their 3-pointers so far this season. From there, Wofford leads country in 3-point attempt rate, taking more than 60 percent of its shots from beyond the arc, and the Terriers are capable of a barrage at any moment.
They are also above-average on the offensive glass, grabbing 30.4 percent of their own misses, and senior guard Storm Murphy is a breakout player, averaging 19.8 points, 4.8 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game while shooting 40.6 percent from beyond the arc. Defensively, Wofford isn’t elite, but it does have a path to success against Texas A&M. The Aggies are ranked outside the top 300 nationally in turnover rate, giving the ball away on 26.4 percent of possessions, and that havoc could be crucial for Wofford.
