This is has been a great year in UNCG basketball with a record breaking 25 wins. Tonight’s 79-74 loss to ETSU was heartbreaking.
UNCG swept ETSU during season play and there is no love lost between these two teams. Technical fouls and scuffles during the handshakes have been part of their meetings on the court this year.
The Spartans had the energy in the first half of this game and it disappeared at halftime and never returned. Like so many games, however, this one was lost on the free throw line. Those points are crucial and can swing a game as close as this.
Nonetheless, it was a great year to watch the Spartans! In sports, like in life, you gotta shake it off and look forward to the next challenge. And UNCG’s next challenge is a good one…NIT here comes the G!
