    CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Noah Dahlman scored 21 points to lead Wofford past Appalachian State 69-56 in the Southern Conference tournament quarterfinals on Saturday.

    The Terriers, who won last year's tournament and entered this year's event on a five-game winning streak, will face Western Carolina in Sunday's first semifinal.

    Brad Loesing and Cameron Rundles added 12 points apiece for Wofford (19-12) and Jamar Diggs had 11.

    Omar Carter gave Appalachian State (16-15) its lone lead of the second half at 38-37 on a jumper with 16:31 remaining, but Wofford countered with a 22-7 run to put the game away.

    Three inside baskets by the driving Diggs enabled the Terriers to go up 47-40 and a layup by Dahlman at the 8:30 mark gave Wofford its first double-digit lead at 55-45.

    Donald Sims led the Mountaineers with 14 points and Carter added 12.

    Wofford led most of the first half, but Appalachian State tied it 32-32 at halftime on a pair of Nathan Healy free throws with 6.9 seconds remaining. The Terriers took their largest first-half lead at the 9:22 mark on Kevin Giltner's 3-pointer that made it 23-16.

    The Terriers made 28 of 58 shots (48.3 percent) and the Mountaineers were 22 of 56 (39.3 percent) from the field. Appalachian State made just 1 of 12 3-pointers.
