If you thought Wofford wasn’t legit, well, you were wrong. The Terriers, seeded No. 7 in the Midwest Region, beat No. 10 Seton Hall, 84-68, on Thursday thanks to 13 three-pointers.

Wofford (30-4), which has won 21 straight games, has not lost since Dec. 19.

“It’s crazy thinking about that,” Wofford guard Nathan Hoover said on Ferrall on the Bench. “We haven’t lost since the New Year. The feeling of winning, we’re not getting cocky or anything, but it feels great. Our confidence level is through the roof.”

Hoover hit four threes and scored 18 points against Seton Hall, while running mate Fletcher McGee broke the Division I record for three-pointers. He shot 7-of-12 from deep and now has 509 treys for his career.

Wofford will need that hot shooting against No. 2 Kentucky (28-6) in the Round of 32 on Saturday.

“We know that they’re going to come out giving it to us big time,” Hoover said. “They’re going to be trying to go at us with everything they have. It’s going to be a very good game, but we’re not going to back down from anything no matter who we play.”

Wofford played North Carolina, Kansas, and Oklahoma, among other Power Five schools, during the regular season.

“We’ve played in a bunch of big games this year,” Hoover said, “so we’ve gotten that feeling of playing a top-10 team in the country. We’re going to come out, we’re not going to change anything. We’ve got to look at them and scout them, but we’re not going to change how we play no matter who our opponent is.”
