UNCG vs Kennesaw St, Win 72-54

FOULS. If there is one word to sum up this game, it's Fouls. The refs controlled this game worse than a corporate twitter account. There was no rhythm to the game, and refs spent half their time raising their shoulders and saying to coaches, "I had to call it." Those...

UNCG vs Georgetown, Win 65-61

I'll be honest. I wasn't sober enough last night to write a post. No matter where we went, everyone around me knew UNCG had beaten Georgetown. I was loud, I was proud, and yes, I was probably obnoxious ... in a nice way. Defense won this game hands down. Defense...

UNCG vs App State, Win 55-41

Once again, defense won this game. Because it sure wasn't offense. We shot 32.8% for the game, 31% from three-point-land, and 33.3% in freethrows. And in that mix, we had FIVE Spartans commit OH-fers with an amazing 0-15 shooting. Our games are getting uglier and...

UNCG vs Montana St, Loss 67-66

I'm not sure what to say about this game you're not already thinking. We played some great basketball ... and we made some dumb errors. We played some great defense ... and we made some dumb fouls. We made a lot of breakthroughs (Isaiah's swagger rejoined the team,...

UNCG vs Tennessee Tech, Win 64-30

Our Defense has to be in the Top 25 of the nation. We have the ability to smother our opponents so much they need oxygen masks on the sideline. Tennessee Tech only scored 12 points in the first half, and 18 in the second. They never had a chance. Coach Miller said...

A Day In The Life of a European Pro

This year marks my second official season as a professional basketball player. I have signed a contract with Cáceres Basketball, in the LEB Gold league in Spain. Cáceres is a nice, calm but vibrant little city in Western Spain close to the Portuguese border, and I...

UNCG vs Averett, Win 109-51

This game felt a little like your friends holding your little brother down while you give him purple nurples and wedgies. Everyone on the team played great. The only negative I could find that was Isaiah still getting smothered from doing his thing. Teams are onto him...

UNCG at Kansas, Loss 62-74

Disappointing loss. What killed this game was missing freethrows (6-13) and missing OPEN shots (8-31 3pt). Kansas missed their open shots in the first half, but they're the #3 team and they don't get there by missing them the entire game. Their light finally came on...

Jordy Kuiper on Recruiting Bas Leyte

UNCG Alum Jordy Kuiper graduated in 2017, but he still keeps close ties to the Spartan program. After a stint playing in Iceland, he is now playing in Caceres, Spain. Jordy spoke to UNCGHoops.com about how he helped in the recruiting of Freshman big man, Bas Leyte, to...

UNCG vs NC A&T, 83-50 Win

Wow. What a season opener. Granted, A&T wasn't ranked high, so I expected the win ... but we did so much more than win. We played a LOT of guys, and in doing that, the fans got to see a pretty good preview of what to expect this season. Isaiah Miller Zay has...
