#1 Furman 4, #4 Samford 0

#2 ETSU 4, #3 Mercer 0

 

Notes:

-Second-seeded ETSU advanced to Sunday's final with a 4-0 win over Mercer.  The Bucs will be making their third straight appearance in the title match.  ETSU fell to Samford (4-1) in 2015 and downed the Bulldogs (4-0) last year.  

-The Bucs are looking for back-to-back tournament titles.  The last team to win multiple tourney crowns in a row was College of Charleston (2009-2013).

-Furman topped Samford in the other semifinal Saturday morning.  The Paladins, who won the league's regular season crown, are looking for their first tournament title since 2008.

-Should Furman win both the regular season championship and the tournament title, they would become the third school in the last five years to win both (College of Charleston, 2013 and Samford, 2015).

-With rain expected in the area, the rain contingency plan calls for the women's title match to be played at 10am at the indoor courts at the Mickel Tennis Center Sunday.
