Furman coach Jeff Jackson attended his first Southern Conference Basketball Tip-off on Wednesday and got a nice "welcome to Greenville" present.

His men's team was picked by the SoCon coaches to finish second in the league's south division behind another team with a new head coach, the College of Charleston under Bobby Cremins.

"I don't think we'll be boring. We'll play at a pretty good pace," Jackson said at the annual gathering of the coaches and the media at the Greenville Hilton.

Jackson, a former Vanderbilt assistant named to replace Larry Davis last April, said he's pleased with his team's work ethic. The men are preparing for an exhibition game Saturday night (7 p.m.) vs. Francis Marion in Timmons Arena, then will open the season at home Nov. 11 vs. Charleston Southern.
