Catawba claimed the South Atlantic Conference regular-season title and finished the season with a 20-10 mark. Anderson wrapped up the regular season ranked six in the region and notched a record-setting 23-6 campaign heading into the NCAA Tournament, winning nine of its last 10 games and 10 of its last 12.
