UNCG finally had a break though performance on Thursday night at College of Charleston. It was a night when many players stepped up in order to pick up that first SoCon win of the season.

Now the Spartans turn right around and face a team that looks very similar to itself. The Bulldogs sport similar stats (albeit against a lesser schedule) and similar All-SoCon player in Mike Groselle. Groselle has posted 9 straight double-doubles coming into this game. It will take a group effort to contain him.

I hope the Spartans have really found some confidence to build upon for the rest of the season.
