Instant Analysis

Furman head coach Bob Richey has publicly given the player acquisition philosophy of “can’t shoot, won’t recruit.” That’s crucial in this matchup with the Virginia pack line defense, which forces opponents to beat it over the top. Furman ranks 13th nationally in 3-point attempt rate, fully willing to launch from downtown.
