SoCon Basketball 2012-13: Update 1 (Dec. 9-16)
Davidson and Chattanooga Met in an early league encounter

Taking a Look at Southern Conference Basketball To This Point:

With the FCS playoffs and with stories such as Appalachian State's longtime football coach Jerry Moore stepping aside, it's been tough to get a good gauge on what has happened on the SoCon hardwood to this point in the 2012-13 season. 

However, I have been able to catch some of the early action on TV and have had the opportunity to see Davidson play on multiple occasions this season, while also watching most of the Furman-Mercer and Appalachian State-Virginia Tech encounters over the past couple of weeks. 

From what I have seen so far, it's going to take something special to beat Bob McKillop's Wildcats, who are the league's defending champs and might have the best group of players since Davidson's 2007-08 team went all the way to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Basketball Tournament.

Some of the early league games have seen Davidson down Chattanooga, 81-55, in the Scenic City, while Western Carolina claimed a 69-55 win at Furman last week. UNC Greensboro handed The Citadel an 84-54 defeat. 

Over the next few weeks as the lead-up to league play begins in earnest, we will be taking a team-by-team look at the Southern Conference. The plan is to update you on all 12 league members heading into January and February as we get ready for another exciting Southern Conference race in 2012-13.
