East Tennessee State Buccaneers 

East Tennessee State managed wins over only Emory & Henry, Elon, Little Rock, Mars Hill, Wofford and VMI in their first 16 games. The Buccaneers have gone a sketchy 3-6 since then with wins over the Citadel, Chattanooga and Wofford. 

Back on Saturday versus Samford, the Buccaneers were down 39-29 by halftime. East Tennessee State was outscored 34-33 in the second half and lost 73-62. Jalen Haynes was the top scorer with 22 points and nine rebounds. 

UNC Greensboro Spartans

Over on the UNC Greensboro side, they managed a 9-7 run over their first 16 games of the season. The Spartans have hit a 7-2 run since then with wins over VMI, Furman, the Citadel, Mercer, VMI again, Mercer again and the Citadel again. 

In the rematch versus the Citadel on Saturday, the Spartans were up 38-29 going into the second half. UNC Greensboro posted a 41-30 run from there and won it 79-59. Keyshaun Langley was the lead team scorer on 19 points. 


I’ll probably stick with UNC Greensboro here. The Spartans are on a nice 7-1 run right now, and they’ve hit 68 or more points in nine of their last 12 outings. UNC Greensboro has also held opponents to just 108 combined points in the last two games. As for East Tennessee State, they’ve hit 67 points or fewer in three of the last four games but they can score pretty well in the right matchups. That said, I don’t think the Buccaneers will keep the pace in this one.
