SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) Furman coach Bob Richey could sense his No. 25 Paladins felt the load of the school's first-ever ranking and being one of only 10 unbeaten teams left in the country. So he had some advice in the locker room Saturday with his team down four at the half.
"Coach told us pressure is when you are 0-10, not 10-0," Paladins forward Matt Rafferty said.
The Paladins (10-0) charged ahead immediately after halftime and cruised to a 74-60 win over South Carolina Upstate, continuing one of the most remarkable stories of the college basketball season.
