Let the Previews Begin

Throughout this preseason, I'll be posting many previews of UNCG basketball. Don't be surprised at how low most places have the Spartans listed. Remember that this is indeed a team coming off of a rough season and nobody is paying attention to the number of seniors on the team. That being said, let the previews begin.

Our first of the year is This is a pretty poor one. Written by someone who simply read through UNCG's roster. The proof is that Damian Eargle's name appears as a key returning player.

291. UNC Greensboro


BEST PLAYER: F Ben Stywall

QUICK TAKE: UNC Greensboro is the other school in its market, playing in Wake Forest's shadow. BUZZ: Mike Dement's second four-year stretch as Spartans coach hasn't gone as well as his first. Dement was 55-56 from 1991-95; since his return in 2005-06, UNCG is 52-70. But there is reason for optimism as guard Mikko Koivisto (12.4 ppg) and forwards Stywall (11.7 ppg, 8.4 rpg) and Damian Eargle (9.2 ppg, 5.6 ppg) return.
