Spartan Notes:
- UNCG was obliterated by East Carolina on Saturday evening, 81-53. That is all I will write about that game.
- The Spartans are still averaging an astounding 22 turnovers per game. They are giving up over 92 points per game. That ranks 346th in D1.
-This series has been very competitive over the years. A&T leads the overall series 7-6. The teams haven't met since the 2001-2002 season. UNCG won that game 85-67.
- Korey VanDussen leads UNCG in scoring (12.8), rebounding (4.8) and assists (3.3). Cody Henegar and David Williams are also averaging 4.8 rebounds per contest. Kyle Randall and Drew Parker are both averaging 3 assist per game.
- For the season, UNCG is shooting 43.0% from the field, 36.2% from behind the arc and 67% from the free throw line.

Aggies Notes:
- The Aggies enter tonight's game winners of 2 straight. After an overtime win against UNCW, NC A&T beat Greensboro College 79-58 on Friday. Thomas Coleman led the Aggies with 14 points and 10 rebounds.
- A&T has played a schedule that can rival the difficulty of UNCG's. They have played road games at #5 Ohio State and #10 Florida.
- NC A&T are ranked in the top 200 in Divsion 1 in almost major offensive categories. Their problem falls on the defensive side, where the Aggies boast a top 200 ranking in just one (3 point % defense) category.
- The Aggies were picked to finish 8th in the MEAC during preseason by the conference coaches. Coleman was a preseason 2nd team selection.
- A&T has 9 NCAA tournament appearances on their resume. Their last appearance was in 1995, when they lost as a #16 seed to Wake Forest. The previous year, the Aggies only lost by 15 to eventual national champion Arkansas.
- Coleman leads A&T in points (13.4) and rebounds (10.0) per game. Marc Hill leads the team in assists (4.5).
- For the year, NC A&T is shooting 43.6% from the field, 32.8% from behind the arc and 69.6% from the free throw line.

My Thoughts
It's time to shit, or get off the pot. Simple as that.

Go Spartans !!!
