CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- Noah Dahlman scored 18 points, and Cameron Rundles and Jamar Diggs added 17 apiece as Wofford defeated Western Carolina 86-72 on Sunday night in the Southern Conference tournament's first semifinal.

The Terriers (20-12) will look to defend last year's SoCon tournament title on Monday night.

Western Carolina (18-15) scored the first four points of the second half to pull within five, 45-40, but the Terriers answered with a 7-0 run that culminated with a Rundles 3-pointer at the 15:35 mark. The Terriers took their largest lead at 74-57 on a Nathan Parker tip in with 4:33 left.

Wofford shot 54 percent (27 of 50) from the floor and 80 percent from the free-throw line (28 of 35).

Williams led Western Carolina with 25 points on 11-of-22 shooting. Harouna Mutombo added 17 points and Trey Sumler 12.
