Undersized Wofford Ready for Badgers


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Don't expect little ol' Wofford to be overwhelmed.

Sure, the Terriers have the smallest enrollment of any team in the NCAA tournament (1,450 students), have no starters taller than 6-6 and are making their debut on college basketball's biggest stage. But the Southern Conference champions have as much confidence and swagger as any of the big boys.

And when the No. 13 seed Terriers (26-8) take the court against fourth-seeded Wisconsin (23-8) on Friday, they don't anticipate looking like 10-point underdogs just happy to be in the field.

They have won 13 in a row and 19 of their last 20. They beat Georgia and South Carolina early in the season, played Illinois tough and took then-No. 9 Michigan State to the wire.
