Team Preview: UNC-Greensboro

Uncg_logo_medium

Not to be rude at all to UNC-Greensboro, but if Wake Forest loses tonight to the Spartans, we should disband the basketball program. Wake Forest comes into the game with a 5-4 record, with some unsightly losses, but UNC-G would take that in a heartbeat. The Spartans come into the game with an 0-8 record, and has not been closer than a 12 point loss. 

With a new lineup tonight (CJ, Nikita, Ari/Travis, Gary, and Carson), the Deacs should come out with a ton of intensity and hustle. If we can do that then the result will take care of itself.

As you can see, the Spartans have not a single green sector on this board. In terms of adjusted efficiency, they are the 340th team in D1, and are the worst team in America in defensive effective fg%. They tend to play an up-tempo game, and that leads to a bunch of turnovers (they turn it over on approximately 25% of their possessions).

To be fair to UNC-G, they have had a lot of the same problems that we have had. They are a young team, and they have had a very difficult schedule (not a problem that we have had unfortunately).
