It was a disappointing all around effort for UNCG on Wednesday night. Much like last Sunday's game at James Madison, the Spartans played an abysmal first half. Unfortunately, there was no inspired effort in the second half. UNCG could get no closer than 13  in the second half and the Seahawks cruised to a home victory.

Unfortunately, it was the same problems for UNCG. Cold shooting and bad defense have been the running themes so far this season. UNCW had averaged shooting just 40% form the field and 29% from behind the arc for the season.However, they were over 50% in both categories for this game. This is a problem that will have to get fixed if UNCG is going to get back in the win column.
