The Southern Conference men's basketball tournament has reached the semifinals already, with the top four seeds in the bracket set to tip off Sunday. Top-seeded Davidson is looking to defend its 2012 title.
The 2013 Southern Conference men's basketball tournament is in full swing, with the semifinal portion of the bracket set to take place Sunday.
