Spartans Pull Away from Pesky Braves

UNCG 71 - UNC Pembroke 58

After a slow start, the Spartans finally started to settle into a game for the first time in 3 games. By the time the second half rolled around, Trevis Simpson and Aloysius Henry helped to put away a very pesky Division II team. Simpson's 22 points led UNCG

Extra Points:
- UNCG out rebounded the Braves by 10. It was the 2nd time in the first 3 games that the Spartans. David Williams seemed to find every offensive rebound in the 2nd half.
- I can see why Taylor Hoffer has been finding himself getting more playing time this season. He was definitely the most physical player on the court.
- It was good to see Kyle Randall step up and make some big shots early in the game. Kyle has been really struggling this season and I hope this game will give him more confidence.
- UNCG shot 81.3% (13-16) from the free throw line.
