Saturday college basketball brings us to the SoCon where the UNC Greensboro Spartans visit the Chattanooga Mocs.

The surging North Carolina Greensboro Spartans have won seven straight after downing visiting Samford 75-67 as an eight point favorite.

UNC Greensboro took an eight point lead in to the break and traded baskets over the final 20 minutes behind 43.3% shooting and 14 extra shots.

Isaiah Miller made sure there was no upset with 22 points, seven boards and three steals with Kyrin Galloway adding 13 points, four pulls and three steals.

The Spartans saw 12 points and five pulls from Kaleb Hunter followed by Demetrius Troy with eleven points, three yanks and five helpers.

The Chattanooga Mocs squeezed by VMI 71-70 as a 1.5 point road favorite on Thursday which put an end to a four game slide.

Chattanooga led by a four point margin after 20 minutes and overcame a second half VMI comeback behind 12 long balls.

Thomas Smallwood paced a balanced Mocs offense with 16 points and six boards while Kevin Easley, David Jean-Baptiste and Donovann Toatley netted eleven points apiece.

UNCG Spartans are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and UNCG Spartans are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. Southern. 

Chattanooga Mocs are 13-30 ATS in their last 43 games following a ATS loss and Chattanooga Mocs are 8-19-1 ATS in their last 28 home games. 

Over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Chattanooga and over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

Both teams are top four in the SoCon so I’ll back the small road chalk…

Pick:
East Tennessee State +2

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
