UNCG vs ETSU, Loss 57-64

This is one of those games that you wish you had a do-over with. When you're playing one of the best teams in your conference, not scoring in the final 2:30 will lose you the ball game. And that was one of the reasons G lost this game. Another was letting ETSU go on a...

UNCG at Wofford, Loss 92-98 2OT

Down four players to injury (two of them starters), UNCG scrapped and clawed their way into this game multiple times. But eventually, after losing two more starters to fouling out, we just couldn't close the game out in Spartanburg. Isaiah Miller Zay exerted his will...

UNCG vs Mercer, Win 72-63

The New Year saw our first true conference test as Mercer came to town. After building an 18-pt halftime lead, 43-25, G let Mercer claw their way back into the game to get as close as 3 points on two occasions. But UNCG held on as senior Malik Massey and freshman...

UNCG vs William Peace, Win 106-34

UNCG drubbed Division III William Peace in a contest that was never close. I predicted a 40-50 pt blowout ... and it happened. Not much to say about this game other than we exerted our will like the Greensboro College game last year that ended in a 111-33 rout. It was...

UNCG at Vermont, Win 54-53

I knew it was going to be a close game, but the last thing I needed was UNCG on defense for another final shot. This time went our way, though. This game was riddled with intensity. Off the ball, under the rim, end to end. The first half, it felt like every 50/50 play...

UNCG vs NC State, Loss 77-80

Heartbreaking. When you lose to a half-court shot, it's always heartbreaking. But to lose 2 games in a season this way? It's devastating. When Markell Johnson let that ball fly, I knew it was impossible, because it could never happen twice in the same season, right?...

UNCG at Radford, Win 60-58

When you play a road game against a tough opponent, you sometimes do things you don't normally do, because getting the W is more important than following the game plan perfectly. And we eked this game out despite giving Radford every chance to win. We shot a horrid...

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...
