UNCG at Chattanooga, Loss 72-74

This is one of those games you wish just one little thing would have gone differently. After blasting out the gate and gaining an 11-pt lead, 13-2, the Spartans fizzled offensively as Chattanooga heated up. Let's just say we had every chance to win this game, but...

UNCG vs Furman, Loss 67-81

Not much to say about this game. I wasn't happy with a lot of the reffing ... but Furman beat us by making shots when we couldn't. They're a good team and we might see them again in the Socon Tourney. I relish it. I find it a little suspect that Furman didn't get...

UNCG at VMI, Win 71-68

With VMI commanding as much as an 11-pt lead during the 2nd half, the Spartans didn't see the lead go their way until the final 2:26 when Isaiah Miller sank 2 lovely freethrows. If you're going to have the lead at any time in the game, the end is the right time. UNCG...

UNCG vs Wofford, Win 83-79 OT

We did not get the 17-point drubbing I predicted. What we got was an exciting close game that aged me ten years. The difference between this game and most of our others is that we shot about 60% the number of threes we normally do. But still only shot 44% from the...

UNCG at Mercer, Win 67-55

This was the game of the UNCG bigs. JD, Big Mo, & Kyrin all exerted their presence inside the paint, from rebounding and superb shooting to shot blocking and frustrating Mercer's bigs and guards. But while UNCG's guards didn't score like normal, they did their job...

UNCG vs Western Carolina, Win 82-62

Unlike the contest in Cullowhee, Western never had a chance in this game. UNCG jumped on them from the opening salvo and never let up. The moment Western made a 6-pt run, UNCG answered with a flurry of defense and offense and extended the lead back. And even though we...

UNCG vs Samford, Win 95-67

UNCG played 11 players over 8 minutes, and no one player was in the game for more than 26 mins. A true team effort that shows just how dangerous this team can be and how many weapons we have. I had predicted a 30-point blowout with a 15-turnover advantage ... I got a...

UNCG vs The Citadel, Win 88-68

  Keyshaun Langley 5-7 FG (2-4 3PT), 5-5 FT, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block, 3 steals, 2 turnovers. Career-high 17 pts for Key. Remember folks, he's still a freshman. Isaiah Miller 6-15 FG (1-2 3PT), 2-6 FT, 3 rebounds, 6 assists, 4 steals, 1 turnover. Zay missed...

UNCG at ETSU, Loss 82-65

UNCG drops a game against a good team with help from some hometown reffing as the Bucs shoot 24 freethrows on the night. The refs called aberration after aberration against UNCG in the first half, awarding Oscar-worthy ETSU flops with fouls that changed the momentum...
