The UNC-Greensboro Spartans and the Wofford Terriers meet in college basketball action from the Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium on Saturday.

The UNC-Greensboro Spartans will look to build on their 72-47 win over Western Carolina last time out. Keondre Kennedy leads the Spartans in scoring and rebounding with 13.3 PPG and 7.6 RPG while Keyshaun Langley has 11.9 PPG with 2.6 APG and Mikeal Brown-Jones has 11.2 PPG with 4.8 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for UNCG up to this point in the year. Kobe Langley has a team-high 4 APG as well to lead the Spartans in assists this season. As a team, UNC-Greensboro is averaging 70.4 PPG on 42.8% shooting from the field, 34% from three and 72.7% from the foul line this season.

The Wofford Terriers will try to bounce back from a 73-71 loss to East Tennessee State last time out. B.J. Mack leads the Terriers in scoring with 15.8 PPG along with 5.4 RPG while Jackson Paveletzke has 15.6 PPG with a team-high 3.9 APG to lead Wofford in the assist department as the only other double-digit scorer for Wofford up to this point in the season. Corey Tripp has 9.2 PPG while Messiah Jones has 9.6 PPG up to this point in the year. As a team, Wofford is averaging 76.1 PPG on 47% shooting from the field, 32.6% from three and 75.8% from the foul line this season.

UNC-Greensboro is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games and 4-13 ATS in their last 17 games overall while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 games overall. Wofford is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 home games against a team with a losing road record while the over is 11-5 in their last 16 games overall.

I get the case to be made for UNCG here with such a tight line, but I’m backing Wofford at home here. The Terriers have just played their better basketball at home this season, going 7-1 to this point and I just don’t know if UNCG can do enough to overcome the home court edge for Wofford in this game. If we were getting more points with the Spartans, maybe I could be talked into it, but only laying a bucket? I have to take Wofford here.
