UNCG at Western, Win 72-58

UNCG at Western, Win 72-58

First off, Western students are horrible. They are uncouth, classless, & unimaginative in their insult hurling. Not a lot of English majors in the crowd. The building security is lax at best because several times we had to ask "the little girl" who "secured" the...

UNCG at Samford, Win 70-63

UNCG at Samford, Win 70-63

This game was at times brilliant and at other times painful. The first few minutes saw Samford break out to a 7-2 lead in an ugly game, but we made strides to close the game. At the 12:55 mark Samford took the lead for the final time,12-10. Then we opened our can of...

UNCG vs Chattanooga, Win 72-52

UNCG blew a 9-point halftime lead to let Chattanooga tie the game at 42-42. Chat took a 1-point lead at 46-45, but that was the last time they'd see an advantage as UNCG routed them for the final 10 minutes en route to a 20-point victory. Angelo Allegri Gelo has...

UNCG at The Citadel, Win 79-69

UNCG at The Citadel, Win 79-69

In a game of spurts, UNCG countered The Citadel's sharpshooting (47%) by forcing 32 turnovers, including the one shown above where after a bogus foul call on Isaiah Miller near the beginning of the second half, Zay immediately took the ball on a lazy pass and laid it...

UNCG at Furman, Win 86-73

UNCG at Furman, Win 86-73

I missed the ETSU game because we were cruising in the Bahamas (a G cheerleader was on the same boat!). So I still haven't seen the game to see everything that happened. What little I read made me very wary of how the team would react this game. And they came out...

UNCG vs ETSU, Loss 57-64

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

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

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 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...
