Chattanooga (20-10, 12-5 SoCon) has locked up either the No. 2 OR No. 3 seed in next weekend's SoCon Tournament in Asheville with final seeding dependent on its own result Saturday, in addition to UNCG who also sits at 12-5. With a UTC win and UNCG loss, the Mocs will claim the No. 2 seed while any other outcome will land the squad in the No. 3 spot.
 
Western Carolina (21-9, 10-7 SoCon) enters the weekend in a two-way tie with Furman for the No. 4 seed and can slide anywhere from No. 4 to No. 6 dependent on results from itself, Furman and Wofford, who trails by a game at 9-8 but owns the tiebreak over the Catamounts. WCU is led by Vonterius Woolbright, one of top players in mid-major basketball, who leads the SoCon in scoring (21.6 ppg), rebounding (12.0) and minutes per game (34.6).
