What to Know

If the oddsmakers' predictions hold true, the near future looks bright for UNCG. They and the VMI Keydets will face off in a Southern battle at 7:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Greensboro Coliseum. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W'.

UNCG unfortunately witnessed the end of their three-game winning streak on Saturday. They took a 86-72 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Bears.

Meanwhile, VMI's recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Saturday after their tenth straight loss. They were completely outmatched by the Catamounts at home and fell 84-51.

The Spartans' loss ended a six-game streak of away wins and brought them to 20-9. As for the Keydets, they have traveled a rocky road recently having lost 15 of their last 16 matchups, which put a noticeable dent in their 4-25 record this season.

Keep an eye on the arc in Wednesday's game: UNCG have been dynamite from deep this season, having drained 39.6% of their threes per game. It's a different story for VMI, though, as they've only made 30.5% of their threes this season. Given UNCG's sizable advantage in that area, the Keydets will need to find a way to close that gap.
