UNCG @ Green Bay
Current Records: UNCG 3-0; Green Bay 0-2
What to Know
The UNCG Spartans will take on the Green Bay Phoenix at 3 p.m. ET Thursday at McArthur Center. Neither of those teams managed to put together many points in their previous contests, so their meeting could be a low-scoring affair.
UNCG beat the Coppin State Eagles 55-48 on Monday.
Meanwhile, it's never fun to lose, and it's even less fun to lose 72-34, which was the final score in Green Bay's tilt against the Wisconsin Badgers last Friday.
The Spartans are the favorite in this one, with an expected 10-point margin of victory. But bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.
UNCG's win brought them up to 3-0 while Green Bay's defeat pulled them down to 0-2. A couple last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: UNCG have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 31.90%, which places them seventh in college basketball. Less enviably, Green Bay has only been able to knock down 35.90% percent of their shots, which is the sixth lowest field goal percentage in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked against the Phoenix.
