Although Wofford 'ran out of time' in NCAA tournament, they made it worthwhile

They get it. With dejected faces and stunned, yet respectful dispositions, the Wofford men’s basketball team made their way past the handshake line, the raucous din of the crowd, the loss.

However, the sting that comes with a loss is something that lingers, even for the greatest of squads.

Likewise, no one could have predicted that, twelve seasons later, a squad in a completely different position could be fixed in a familiar situation.
