UNCG scored the first 12 point after halftime to take a 4 point lead on Richmond. The game remained close until a little before the 8 minute mark. However, with the score tied at 55, UNCG was out scored 23-3 to finish the game.

G is continuing to play very hard, and at times, very well under new coach Wes Miller. However, these late game swoons are becoming a a little too common.

On the bright side, this game saw a re-emergence of Alysius Henry and Nick Paulos. The Spartans will need Henry's rebounding and Paulos's shooting going into conference play. Hopefully, their strong play can continue.
