Last Meeting with Wofford (2/22/2017):
Sharpshooter Fletcher Magee scored 19 of his game-high 24 points in the second half, helping the Wofford Terriers pull away and spoil Senior Night for the VMI Keydets, 81-63, in SoCon basketball action Wednesday night - February 22, 2017 - in Lexington, Va. The game was a tale of two halves, as VMI led by as many as seven in the first half before going into the locker room down one. Magee sparked Wofford's 66.7% second-half shooting - including 8 of 13 from long range - by going 6 for 6 from the floor in the period to lead the visitors to the win.
A VMI win against Wofford would:
Snap an eight-game losing streak against the Terriers.
