Definitely a game to forget for UNCG. There is not a ton to say about this game. Trevis Simpson didn't play for the second time in 3 games. Unlike last Wednesday, the Spartans couldn't overcome the loss of their leading scorer. Now UNCG will need Davidson to beat Elon on Thursday night in order to clinch the North Division title.

Should they rest the starters against Elon? I don't think another W will help in the NCAA seeding, but a good rest could help out playing 3 games in 3 days in the socon tourny.

Let's play to win. Another loss going into the conference championship would be tough. This assumes Simpson is healthy.

Play to win. You play to win the game and if we get up early then maybe we can rest Simpson. I say we rest Simpson more than usual as he is the best player in the SoCon. Play him about 25 minutes instead of his usual 35.
