I’m backing UNCG here. Mercer’s a solid group that’s picked up their play as of late, but UNCG really needs a win to keep pace and maybe break through in the logjam that is the SoCon top tier right now and I just think that Mercer likely won’t be able to slow down the Spartans, even at home. UNCG has been so good on the road in conference play and I look for them to keep it going here. Give me UNC-Greensboro.
