I stated in my pregame thoughts that UNCG didn't have anything to play for and Elon had a ton to play for in this game. Well, that was quite obvious. Elon scored the first 11 points and really only was threatened by UNCG once from then on.

Now it seems UNCG is completely out of sorts and struggling big time. Not a good sign for a team that had hopes of a conference championship just a couple of weeks ago. However, the Spartans are the outright North Division Champions and a #1 seed in the tournament.

I'll talk more about the tournament in the next few days, but for now let's hope UNCG can put this game (and this past week in general) out of their minds and focus on the up coming task.
