2005-06 UNCG Men’s Basketball Media Guide • 5


If you are looking for a focal point to preview the UNC Greensboro men’s basketball season, you would have no shortage of viewpoints. You could start with what returns. You could start with Kyle Hines. Last year, the 6-6 native of Sicklerville, NJ took the Southern Conference by storm not just by breaking the UNCG blocked shots single-season record, not just breaking the Southern Conference freshman blocked shots record, but by recording the most blocked shots by any player in Southern Conference history. He was good enough to earn Southern Conference Freshman of the Year and, as just a freshman, a spot on the coaches’ 10-member all-conference squad. You could start with Ricky Hickman, who had an outstanding sophomore season with a 14.5 points per game scoring average, and team highs with 79 steals on the defensive end and 41 three pointers on the offensive end. You could start with what is new. Seven players will make their Division I basketball debut this season for the Spartans. An eighth, fifth-year senior Devon Boddie, hasn’t played in two years since he sat out one year after his transfer from East Carolina and a second with an injury last year. You could start with what returns, yet is still new... head coach Mike Dement. Dement was named UNCG’s new men’s

Ricky Hickman 6 • 2005-06 UNCG Men’s Basketball Media Guide

basketball coach on April 9, 2005, just eight days after Fran McCaffrey left to become the coach at Siena. Dement is the ninth head coach in the program’s history... and the first to come back for a second tenure. Dement became the coach of the Spartans for the first time when the program made its move to Division I in 1991. He spent four seasons patrolling the sidelines of Fleming Gymnasium, the architect of UNCG’s first winner. Dement’s 55-56 record during the four seasons of his first UNCG tenure is deceiving. The Spartans were a team without a conference for the first two seasons, playing mostly road games and trying to build a NCAA Division I program from one that had been mediocre at NCAA Divisions II and III. But by the end of the second season, Dement’s troops were starting to show signs of success. They won seven of their last 12 and began to turn the corner. In year three, Dement’s team went 15-12 and was seventh in the nation in rebounding margin. The following year, UNCG set a school record for wins by going 23-6. UNCG won the 1994-95 Big South regular-season title, but got clipped on a last second shot in the conference title game to miss out on an NCAA trip. A year later, Dement’s guys went onto the NCAA Tournament without him, after he left to become the head coach at Southern Methodist. Now, however, Dement has returned to UNCG with one thing in mind – taking his team to the NCAA Tournament. Hines and Hickman will be a key to just how soon that happens. Hickman, a 6-3 junior from Kernersville, NC, had a great start and great finish to the season last year. He began with double-figure scoring in 10 of the first 11 games and closed out the season the same way, scoring 10 or more in 10 of the last 11. He was able to have that success in multiple ways, as well. Hickman knocked down a team-high 41 three-pointers, which showed his ability to knock down an outside shot. He also led the team in trips to the free throw line (187), which showed his ability to drive to the basket. According to Stats, Inc., his scoring average growth of nine points per game from his freshman to sophomore year was one of the Top 20 scoring improvements in the country last year. Hickman also got it done in other

Proof of that comes in staggering numbers. He scored 408 points last year, ways. He led the team with 87 assists. He also had a five shy of Jay Joseph’s UNCG team-high 79 steals, showing how he could contribute freshman scoring record. He nearly set a UNCG on the defensive end of the floor as well as the offen- single-season record for field goals with 175. He shot 62.1% from the floor for the year, which led the SoCon and ranked No. 7 in the nation. He scored in double figures in 11 of his first 13 games last year – with only Duke and Wisconsin being able to hold him to singledigit scoring. He can rebound a little bit, too. Hines tied a Division I era school record with 19 rebounds against Elon. He set a Fleming Gym record with 18 rebounds against Georgia Southern. Hines had 11 doubledoubles during the season, the most in the SoCon. His 259 rebounds shattered the UNCG freshman record (152) and nearly broke the UNCG single-season overall record. But all great players need a supporting cast and UNCG will look to several people to play that role. Duane Johnson, a sophomore from Queens, NY, will look to become a fulltime starter this season after making 18 starts as a freshman. Johnson, a 5-9 product of Cardozo HS, was second on the team in assists last year with 66, including tying a school-record with 12 in a game against Bridgewater. Johnson appeared in 28 games last year and also recorded 21 Kyle Hines steals. In those 28 games, the point guard played 20 or more minutes in 15 of those

Players Returning/Lost

contests. Kevin Oleksiak, a sophomore from Abington, PA, will look to crack the starting line-up this season, as well. Oleksiak, a 6-4 swingman, was UNCG’s first or second off the bench last year and appeared as such in all 30 games. He averaged 4.5 points and 1.4 rebounds per contest and shot 86% from the free throw line for the season, best on the squad. Oleksiak also gained valuable experience during his freshman season, playing double-digit minutes in 19 of 30 games. Brian Beckford also returns after a solid freshman campaign. The 6-6 forward from Queens, NY averaged 1.6 points and 2.1 rebounds per game in his rookie season. He appeared in 23 games off the bench, playing double-digit minutes in 11 of them. Dustin Everette showed some of his ability in his freshman year. The 6-8 native of neighboring Trinity, NC, appeared in 25 games off the bench and gave the Spartans solid play. He played double-digit minutes in 10 of those games and was a factor on the offensive glass with 22 of his 34 boards coming on that end of the floor. Devin Boddie makes a return to action this season. The fifth-year senior out of Durham, NC last saw game action in 2002-03 as a member of the team at East Carolina. He transferred at the end of that season to UNCG and had to sit out 2003-04 per NCAA transfer regulations. However, his Spartan debut was delayed by an injury suffered in pre-season conditioning workouts last fall and he never got back to the floor. The 6-2 product of Jordan HS will look to return to the form that earned him all-state honors in high school, averaging 25 points per game. Donald Moore returns for his junior season and looks to play an increased role. Moore is a Greensboro product, having played his high school ball at Page HS. He has appeared in 12 games as a reserve the last two seasons. The rookie contingent contains a mix of players. Bart Tooms is a 6-11 forward from Amsterdam, Holland who comes to UNCG after two seasons at Genessee Junior College in New York. Matt Akinosho is an athletic 6-7 forward from Sanford, NC who transferred to UNCG in the summer of 2004 after his freshman season at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian College. He comes to UNCG with three years of eligibilty after spending his rookie season in NCAA Division II and sitting out last year per NCAA transfer regulations. The freshman class is made up of 6-1 guard Derrick Bernard, 6-9 forward David McClenny, 6-0 guard Marc Campbell and 6-5 forward Everson Simmons. Bernard averaged 15.1 ppg at Dillard HS in Ft. Lauderdale, FL last season, while Simmons scored 1,977 career points, the most in school history at South Johnston HS in North Carolina. McClenny and Campbell played together at Ravenscroft HS in Raleigh, NC, where they were both NCSIAA All-State selections. Campbell scored 1,628 points in his career and dished out 628 assists, while McClenny was rated one of the top frontcourt players in the Carolinas last year by HoopScoop and Preps Plus. 2005-06 UNCG Men’s Basketball Media Guide • 7


Mike Dement returned to UNCG on April 9, 2005 for his second stint as UNCG’s men’s basketball coach. Dement is the ninth head coach in school history – and the first to serve two different tenures as head coach of the program. He turned 51 less than a week after being introduced as UNCG’s new coach, replacing Fran McCaffery, who resigned to become the head coach at Siena College. Clearly not a stranger to the UNCG program, Dement served as the architect of the program in its move to Division I. The Louisburg, NC native was the Spartans’ head coach from 1991-95, leading them from a team with no conference affiliation to the top of the Big South Conference regular season standings in just four seasons. In his last two seasons at UNCG, Dement’s teams went 38-18, including a school-record 23 wins in 1994-95. That year, his team won the Big South Conference’s regular season title and was the runner up in the conference tournament. The team received votes in the Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ polls for the first time in school history during that record-setting season. “Mike Dement’s hiring links our past with the present and is a very strong statement and commitment to the future,” said UNCG Director of Athletics Nelson Bobb, who was the Director of Athletics

at UNCG during Dement’s first tenure, as well. “Mike was the architect chosen to build our first Division I team. He returns to continue that development. “He knows North Carolina well,” said Bobb. “He has a track record of coaching competitive teams who scrap and battle until the end of the game. He inherits a young group of players who are anxious to build on their recent successes in the Southern Conference.” In his 18 seasons as a head coach, Dement has compiled a mark of 260-243. He served five seasons at Cornell from 1986-91 where he led the Big Red to the Ivy League crown and the NCAA Tournament in 1988. Prior to that, he served as an assistant coach at East Carolina (1985-86), Cornell (1983-85) and Duke (1982-83). His first experience as a college assistant came under Mike Krzyzewski. Dement was a high school head coach at Vance Academy and Kerr Lake School before joining Krzyzewski’s staff, logging a 109-26 mark in five seasons. As a college coach, Dement’s teams have won 52% of their

www.uncgspartans.com


games and have had a .500 record or better in 12 of 18 seasons. In March 1995, Dement left UNC Greensboro to become the head coach at Southern Methodist University. In nine seasons at SMU, Dement recorded a 138-120 mark on the court. His win total is fourth all-time at SMU and is just two wins shy of second. During his tenure, he was able to attract Texas recruits to SMU. In 11 seasons before Dement arrived at SMU, the Mustangs had only 11 Texas natives on their roster. In Dement’s nine seasons, the number jumped to 17, including 15 that were ranked as Top 45 recruits. Off the court, Dement’s teams had the second-best graduation rates in Division I in his last two seasons at SMU, trailing only Stanford. From the 1996-97 season through 2002-03, Dement’s squads were .500 or better in seven straight seasons – a first in SMU men’s basketball history. In 1996-97, he was named Western Athletic Conference Coach of the Year by the Dallas Morning News and freshman Stephen Woods was named WAC Rookie of the Year. The following year, his team won their first 10 games, a school record for best start, and received votes in the Associated Press Top 25. In recording an 18-10 mark, the Mustangs also garnered their second-straight WAC Rookie of the Year when Jeryl Sasser received the honor. Sasser would eventually become the program’s first NBA first-round draft pick in 15 years during the summer of 2001. After having one of the youngest teams in the nation in 1998-99, SMU went to the NIT in 1999-2000. The Mustangs were 21-9, only the eighth 20-win season in school history, earning Dement District Coach of the Year honors from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). When his teams won 18 games the following season, the 39 wins in two years were the most since 1987-88. In 2002-03, SMU went 17-13 as Quinton Ross was named WAC Player of the Year and Bryan Hopkins, a high school All-American that Dement brought to SMU, garnered WAC Rookie of the Year honors. It was also the fifth time in seven years that the Mustangs received votes in the AP Top 25.

What others say about Dement’s return to UNCG... NELSON BOBB, UNCG DIRECTOR ATHLETICS: ““Mike Dement’s hiring links our past with the present and is a very strong statement and commitment to the future. Mike was the architect chosen to build our first Division I team. He returns to continue that development. “He knows North Carolina well. He has a track record of coaching competitive teams who scrap and battle until the end of the game. He inherits a young group of players who are anxious to build on their recent successes in the Southern Conference.” FRED BARAKAT - ASSOCIATE COMMISSIONER, ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE: “I have tremendous respect for Mike as a person, a human being and as a basketball coach. He is terrific guy. He is well organized and well prepared. He is an X and O guy, he is an outstanding coach. He is a terrific recruiter. He has the whole package. He is a great choice for UNCG.” MIKE KRZYZEWSKI - HEAD COACH, DUKE UNIVERSITY: “When you hit a home run, it is a great thing. But when you hit a grand slam, it is the best. Hiring Mike Dement at UNCG is a grand slam. It is great for everyone involved – for the school, for Mike, and for the community. I could not be happier for Mike and for UNCG. They are both lucky to join forces again.” SKIP PROSSER - HEAD COACH, WAKE FOREST: “Mike Dement is an outstanding coach and a great tactician. His SMU teams were always well prepared and difficult to play against. He will do an outstanding job at UNCG. It’s a home run for the athletic department.” JAY BILAS - ESPN ANALYST AND DUKE UNIVERSITY ALUMNUS: “I’ve known Mike for over 20 years, having played at Duke while he was there as an assistant coach. I think the world of Mike as both a coach and a player. He has been in the game for a long time and has always accredited himself well. He understands the game and understands the players. He is a winner.” SCOTT HARTZELL - FORMER PLAYER UNDER DEMENT, CLASS OF ‘96 (THIRD ALL-TIME IN SCORING AT UNCG): “I would like to commend Nelson Bobb on making what I think is the perfect hire at this point for UNCG’s program. I know Coach Dement is hungry and extremely excited about this opportunity. He has always spoken highly about his time here and the opportunity it afforded him. I know this decision has already galvanized the fan base from the beginning of the Division I movement, and, more importantly, will serve as a bridge between the teams of the past and the successful ones of the future. “My relationship with Coach Dement from player/coach to friend today is one I will always treasure. I am excited to have him back in Greensboro. As with any change, there will be some apprehension from the players, but I promise them if they come to work every day, they will be successful and will leave UNCG with the same positive feelings I still have today.” DICK VITALE - ESPN ANALYST: “Mike brings a wealth of basketball knowledge. He is a winner and will develop a team that the entire basketball community will be proud of. He has great background being a head coach at SMU and as a former assistant under the great Mike Krzyzewski. He is a perfect hire for UNC Greensboro.” SKEET WOOLARD – FORMER UNCG PLAYER UNDER DEMENT, CLASS OF ‘97: “I was pleased to hear that Coach Dement is returning to UNCG. Without his leadership, the basketball program wouldn’t be where it is today. He was instrumental in establishing a winning attitude to a brand new Division I program. I’ve always considered it a privilege to have played from him and wish him much success in the future.”

Mike Dement returned to UNCG to re-take the reigns of the men’s basketball program on April 9, 2005. Dement previously served as the school’s men’s basketball coach from 1991-95, ushering in UNCG’s Division I era. www.uncgspartans.com

In his first UNCG tenure, the Spartans improved each season. After winning just seven games as a Division I independent in 1991-92, UNCG won 10 games the following season while still playing without a conference. In Dement’s third season, UNCG’s first as a member of the Big South, the Spartans were 11-7 in their first conference season and finished in fifth place, just two games out of second. In 1994-95, the first season that UNCG was eligible to participate in the Big South Tournament, UNCG went 14-2 in the league, winning the conference regular season title. The Spartans, however, were upset by second-seeded Charleston Southern on a basket at the buzzer. The following

season, Dement went on to SMU, but his same core group of players, led by his former top assistant coach Randy Peele, won the Big South regular season and tournament titles and went to the NCAA Tournament. Dement attended Louisburg College and East Carolina as an undergrad. At Louisburg College, Dement helped his team to a second-place finish in Region X. He earned an Associate of Arts degree from Louisburg in 1974 and a Bachelor of Science degree in Health and Physical Education from East Carolina in 1976.

Anthony Jones enters his fourth season on the coaching staff at UNC Greensboro and his first season as an associate head coach. Jones, 46, came to UNCG before the 2002-03 season with a wealth of coaching experience. This season will be his 25th in coaching, including 24 on the collegiate level as an assistant and head coach. Before joining the UNCG staff under then-head coach Fran McCaffery, Jones was most recently the head coach at Division II Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania. He held that position for seven seasons (1995-2002). This past summer, Jones was promoted to associate head coach when he decided to stay at UNCG and serve on Mike Dement’s staff. When Jones assumed his position at Slippery Rock, the basketball program was being placed on NCAA probation, leaving Jones with the task of rebuilding the program. Five seasons later, in 1999-2000, Jones led Slippery Rock to the championship game of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference playoffs. The 1999-2000 season also marked The Rock’s first trip to the PSAC playoffs in 10 seasons and just its sixth title-game berth since 1944-45. Jones led Slippery Rock to a 17-12 record in 1999-2000, their first winning season in nearly a decade (1990-91). The 17 wins represented a 10-game improvement over the previous year and a 15-game leap from Jones’ first season at Slippery Rock. He was named the 1999-2000 PSAC Western Division “Coach of the Year” by his peers. Prior to taking the head coaching position at Slippery Rock, Jones served 13 seasons as a Division I assistant coach. He spent six seasons as an assistant coach at Western Michigan (1989-95). He also worked seven seasons at his alma mater, Illinois State (1981-83, 1984-89), and one year at national power Westinghouse High School (1983-84) in his hometown of Chicago, IL. Jones helped Illinois State to NCAA Tournament appearances in 1983 and 1985 and an NIT berth in 1987. He also helped Western Michigan to a 21-9 record and an NIT berth in 1992. As a player, Jones was a four-year letterman at Illinois State. He concluded his collegiate career as team captain and team MVP in 1981. He played on two Redbird squads that competed in the NIT. Jones earned his bachelor’s degree in Corrections from Illinois State in 1981 and a master’s degree in Criminal Justice Science from Illinois State in 1983. Jones and his wife Nikki have six children: Anthony, Jr, Adonis, William, Jarett, Joseph and Alliyah.

During his 19 seasons as an assistant and a head coach in Boise, earning three NCAA Tournament bids and three NIT berths. His teams were always known for great defense, ranking in the Top 15 nationally in scoring defense four consecutive seasons while he was an assistant and ranking in the Top 25 in that category twice during his seven seasons as head coach. His teams faced Mike Dement’s SMU squads several times when both were members of the Western Athletic Conference. “Rod is an experienced coach who will bring a lot to our young team,” said UNCG head coach Mike Dement when he hired Jensen. “His teams at Boise State were among the toughest I faced in the WAC. He has an excellent reputation on the defensive end of the floor and we hope to take advantage of his knowledge.” While at Virginia, Jensen helped the Cavaliers to a pair of NIT bids as an assistant to Pete Gillen. During Jensen’s time as a head coach at Boise State, he compiled a 109-93 mark, including a 21-8 mark in 1998-99 and the Big West Conference’s East Division title.

Brooks Lee is in his first season as an assistant men’s basketball coach at UNC Greensboro. The son of retired Campbell University head coach Billy Lee, Brooks Lee spent last season at East Carolina as the Director of Basketball Operations after serving on Mike Young’s staff at Wofford as an assistant coach during the 2002-03 campaign. “I have known Brooks for a long time,” said UNCG head coach Mike Dement upon hiring Lee. “Obviously, I first met Brooks through his father, who has been a colleague for a number of years. I have followed Brooks’ career closely and he has always worked hard at everything he does. He is the product of a coach and, therefore, knows what it takes to maintain a successful program.” Lee graduated from Campbell, where he played for his father, in 2002 with a degree in sport management and completed work on his Master’s degree in exercise science. He averaged 9.7 points and 4.3 assists while starting all 26 games for the Camels as a senior. He was named to the Atlantic Sun AllAcademic team. Lee placed second in the A-Sun with his team-best 87.9 freethrow percentage, which was also the second-best single-season percentage in Campbell history. At one point, he made 24 consecutive attempts at the charity stripe. In just two seasons at Campbell, after transferring from High Point, Lee placed sixth on the Camels’ career list for assists with 254. He was also second in career average (4.8), while placing seventh all-time in three-point field-goal percentage (39.3). In the 2001-02 campaign, Lee topped the Atlantic Sun in assists at 5.2 per contest. He started all 53 games over his final two seasons in Buies Creek. In high school, Lee set school records for points, 3point field goals and freethrow percentage. He was all-conference and played in the North Carolina East-West All-Star Game.

Game 1 • UNCG 98, Montreat 67 (Nov. 19)

Game 2 • UNCG 79, Coastal Car. 73 (Nov. 23)

Game 3 • (#10/9) Duke 98, UNCG 44 (Nov. 27)

GREENSBORO, NC – Kyle Hines made his collegiate debut with 21 points and 11 rebounds, one of three Spartans to record a double-double, as UNC Greensboro used a second-half surge to blow out Montreat, 98-67, at Fleming Gymnasium. Hines made 10 of 15 field goal attempts from the floor in his first official game as a Spartan. He also added three blocked shots. In UNCG’s exhibition game nine days earlier, the 6-6 product of Timber Creek HS had 19 points and 15 rebounds. Hines was joined on the double-double parade by Ronnie Burrell’s 18 points and 11 rebounds in just 26 minutes of action and Josh Gross’ 15 points and 11 rebounds in only 23 minutes of play. Gross had most of his double-double in the first half with 10 points and 10 rebounds before intermission. Ricky Hickman also added 15 points and three steals in 22 minutes of work. Montreat hung in early by hitting five of its first six from three-point range to lead 19-16 with 11:29 left in the first half. However, out of a timeout, UNCG switched out of its zone to a man-to-man pressure defense and went on a 9-0 run to take a lead it would never relinquish. UNCG stretched the lead to 10 at the intermission, 44-34, before taking control in the second half. The lead was still 10 at 58-48 on a lay-up by Montreat’s Tim Lewis. However, the Spartans scored the next eight points, capped off by a dunk by Josh Gross to take a 66-48 lead. The spread hit 28 with 3:06 to play when UNCG went on an 18-5 run, six of those coming in the paint where UNCG held a 52-24 advantage for the night. UNCG shot 51.4 percent from the field as a team, compared to Montreat’s 41.3 percent. The Cavaliers were led by Thomas Nicholson’s 19 points off of the bench. Tim Lewis had 17 points and nine rebounds for Montreat. Montreat, however, made just 5-of-16 from behind the arc after its quick start.

GREENSBORO, NC – UNC Greensboro had all five starters score in double figures, led by Ricky Hickman’s career-high 22 points, as the Spartans held off a late Coastal Carolina surge for a 79-73 non-conference win at Fleming Gymnasium. Hickman, a guard from Winston-Salem, NC, scored 13 of his 22 points in the second half, including 8 of 12 from the line in final 17 minutes. He also had four assists and four steals on the night. Hickman was joined in double figures by Josh Gross (15 points), Ronnie Burrell (16), Kyle Hines (10) and Ray Bristow (10). Hines, a native of Sickerville, NJ, recorded his second double-double in as many career collegiate games with 11 rebounds to go with his 10 points. He also tied a school-record with seven blocked shots. UNCG jumped out quickly, taking advantage of Coastal Carolina’s 10 turnovers in the first nine minutes. Fifteen of UNCG’s first 23 points came off of turnovers as the Spartans jumped out to a 25-9 advantage. Coastal Carolina got back in it with an 8-0 run, but Bristow countered with a three-pointer to keep UNCG’s lead in double-digits. In the second half, Coastal Carolina used a 15-5 run midway through the second half to cut the UNCG lead to four at 58-54. However, the Spartans ran off 11-straight points, seven of those points by Hickman, to regain control at 69-54 with 4:15 to play. Coastal Carolina would only close the deficit back to single-digits in the closing seconds as UNCG went to 2-0 for the first time since November 1993 and only the sixth time in school history. The 1993-94 season was the only other time it happened since the program was elevated to NCAA Division I status. Pele Paelay led Coastal Carolina with 22 points and 11 rebounds. Coastal’s Alvin Green, still hampered by a thumb injury he suffered in the pre-season, played only seven minutes and scored just two points.

DURHAM, NC – Shelden Williams scored 15 of his 16 points in the first half to lead six Blue Devils in double-figures as Duke rolled past UNC Greensboro, 98-44, in non-conference action at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Spartans dug themselves a hole in the first half, committing 14 turnovers. UNCG trailed 9-6 four minutes into the game before the Blue Devils ran off 12 straight points to open up a 21-6 lead. The Spartans would get no closer to Duke, which was ranked No. 9 in the Associated Press Top 25 and No. 10 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ Top 25. Freshman forward Kyle Hines led UNCG with nine points and seven rebounds. Hines, a native of Sicklerville, NJ, also had two blocks and three steals. Of UNCG’s 44 points, 30 came in the paint. The Spartans’ turnover woes were compounded by sporadic shooting. UNCG shot just 29.5 percent from the field (18-for-61) and 8-for-16 from the free throw line. UNCG failed to make a three-point attempt (0-for-5) for the first time in its Division I era (376 games since 1991-92) and overall for the first time since February 5, 1990, a span of 408 games. Meanwhile, Duke connected on 52.9 percent of its shots from the field, including 15 three-pointers. The Blue Devils hit nine three-pointers in the first half when they opened up a 60-21 cushion at the intermission. It was the Blue Devils’ 99th win in their last 104 games at home.

Game 4 • UNCG 92, Bridgewater 55 (Nov. 30) Game 5 • UNCG 79, Southern Miss 78 (Dec. 3) Game 6 • (#23/RV) Iowa 83, UNCG 58 (Dec. 4) GREENSBORO, NC – Guard Ricky Hickman scored 21 of his 23 points in the first half and freshman guard Dwayne Johnson celebrated his first start by tying a school-record with 12 assists as UNC Greensboro blasted Bridgewater College (VA), 92-55. The 37-point margin was the largest in UNCG’s 14-year Division I era. UNCG also set a school-record with 29 assists in the game. The Spartans converted 23 Eagle turnovers into 38 points. UNCG jumped out to a 15-2 lead and ran away with it from there. Hickman, coming off of a dismal 1-for-10 from the field night at Duke, could not be stopped in the first 12 minutes. Hickman was 7-for-8 from the field, including 5-for-6 from three-point range, in the first 12 minutes to account for his first 19 points as UNCG jumped out to a 42-11 lead. Johnson, a native of Queens, NY, tied the school-record that had been achieved on three other occasions, but was the first freshman to record 12 assists in a game. The Spartans, who led by as many as 41, also had freshman Kevin Oleksiak add 14 points off the bench to compliment Ronnie Burrell’s 11 points and Kyle Hines’ third double-double in four games. Hines, a native of Sicklerville, NJ, had 14 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks on the night, shooting 6-for-8 from the floor. Bridgewater (3-1), an NCAA Division III school out of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC), had Ricky Easterling, Harry Moore and Jared Chalk each tally eight points to lead the way.

IOWA CITY, IA – Ricky Hickman hit a free throw to break a 78-78 tie with 1.5 seconds to play as UNC Greensboro knocked off Southern Mississippi, 79-78, in the first round of the Gazette Hawkeye Challenge. Hickman was fouled by Michael Ford on a three-point attempt from the right wing. Hickman missed the first attempt, but broke the tie on the second foul shot. After a Southern Miss timeout, Hickman intentionally missed the third shot and the Golden Eagles could not get off a desperation shot before time expired. Hickman led the Spartans with a career-high 29 points, 15 of which came in the first half. Ronnie Burrell added a season-high 27 points and 10 rebounds for UNCG, his ninth 20-point game of his career and the ninth double-double of his career. Burrell scored 20 of his points in the second half. Burrell and Hickman combined to score UNCG’s last 23 points over the final 11:41. Josh Gross’ free throw with 11:41 to play was the last points for the Spartans not scored by Burrell or Hickman. UNCG took advantage of a Southern Miss drought and went on a 13-1 run midway through the first half to rally from a nine-point deficit and take its first lead of the night. Ricky Hickman’s driving lay-up with 9:17 left in the half gave the Spartans their first lead at 22-21. After a Kevin Oleksiak steal, Josh Gross tipped in a Ray Bristow miss to give UNCG a 24-21 advantage and cap off the run. Menawhile, the Golden Eagles, who began the game by hitting seven of its first eight shots from the field, did not have a field goal for 7:28 as the Spartans rallied. The Golden Eagles knocked down a pair of three-point field goals to open the second half and open its lead back up to eight, 44-36. But UNCG was not ready to fold, running off seven in a row to pull back within a point. The Spartans regained the lead on a bizarre play. Hickman stole a pass in the frontcourt and raced the length of the floor. As Hickman drove to the basket, Southern Miss’ Rashaad Caruth bearhugged Hickman for an intentional foul. However, Hickman made the shot, was awarded two foul shots and UNCG retained possession under its own basket. The end result, after Hickman made both free throws and Burrell hit a shot in the lane, was a six-point play that gave UNCG a four-point lead, 51-47. UNCG opened up its biggest-lead of the game with 8:34 to play, 66-59. Southern Miss coach Larry Eustachy, making his first trip back to the state of Iowa since leaving Iowa State, was hit with a technical foul. Burrell drained both free throws and UNCG scored on the ensuing possession to take a seven-point lead. After the teams traded buckets, Southern Miss ran off five straight points to close to within two, 68-66. The game went back-and-forth from there. Burrell gave UNCG a 74-71 lead with a leaner in the lane, but the Golden Eagles’ Solomon Brown countered with a three-pointer to tie the game with 2:20 to play. Southern Miss took the lead on a controversial goaltending call, 76-74, when Hickman blocked a shot from behind on a fast break. Hickman tied the game with two free-throws at the 1:21 mark. After a Golden Eagle miss, UNCG called timeout with 43.2 seconds to play. Burrell hit a hook shot from the right side to give the Spartans a two-point lead with 38 seconds to play. Johnson countered with a lay-up to tie the game with 20 seconds left, setting the stage for Hickman’s free throws.

IOWA CITY, IA – Adam Haluska and Pierre Pierce each scored 17 points to lead four Iowa players in double figures as the Hawkeyes defeated UNC Greensboro, 83-58, in the championship game of the Gazette Hawkeye Challenge. UNC Greensboro was led by Kyle Hines’ 14 points and 10 rebounds, his fourth double-double in six games this season. He also blocked three shots to raise his Southern Conference-leading total to 25. Josh Gross chipped in with 13 points and Ricky Hickman added 11 points. It was Hickman’s fifth double-digit scoring game in six outings. Neither team did a good job of taking care of the basketball early on. In the first half, the teams combined for 24 turnovers, 11 by UNCG. The Spartans, however, compounded matters by shooting just 25 percent from the field in the first half (10-for-40), while Iowa shot 54 percent (15-for-28). Ronnie Burrell and Hickman, which combined to score UNCG’s last 23 points in the win over Southern Mississippi, were held to a combined five points on 2-for-14 shooting from the field in the first 20 minutes. Burrell finished the night with nine points and a game-high 13 rebounds. The Hawkeyes, ranked No. 23 in the Associated Press Top 25 and the top team in the also receiving votes category in the ESPN/USA Today Top 25 poll, opened up their first double-digit lead of the night with just over 10 minutes left in the first half, 25-14, on a three-pointer by Carlton Reed. A three-pointer by freshman Kevin Oleksiak in the right corner and a transition lay-up by Ray Bristow pulled UNCG back within six less than a minute later. However, UNCG scored just one field goal in the next four minutes as Iowa opened its lead back up to 12. UNCG got the margin back to single-digits briefly, but an 8-0 spurt to close out the half by the Hawkeyes gave them a 41-25 lead at the intermission. A pair of Josh Gross dunks spurred an 8-1 UNCG run to open the second half. But a three-pointer by Horner and a transition lay-up got the Hawkeyes back up by double-figures at 47-33. The Spartans (4-2) made a couple of runs after that, but could not get the margin less than 10. Iowa (6-1) blew the game open late and led by as many as 29 in the second half. The Spartans’ other loss was at Top 10-ranked Duke a week earlier. The Spartans were in search of their first in-season tournament title since 1988-89.

GREENSBORO, NC – Kyle Hines, the nation’s second-leading shot blocker, had 15 points, 12 rebounds and seven more blocks to lead six UNC Greensboro players in double-figures as the Spartans blasted Guilford College, 96-65. Hines, who came into the game averaging 4.2 blocks per contest, recorded six of his seven swats in the first half as UNC Greensboro jumped out to a big lead. The Spartans forced nine Quaker turnovers in the first nine minutes and converted them into 16 points as UNCG took a 28-10 lead. The Spartans led by as many as 24 in the first half and held a 52-29 advantage at the intermission. Guilford made a run to open the second half, coming out of the locker room in a 1-2-2 full court press. The Spartans struggled against it in the early stages of the second half as Guilford went on a 10-4 run and got back to within 17 points, 56-39, with 14:55 to play. Genaro Lawhorn scored Guilford’s first six points of the second half to spark the run. However, UNCG regained control by running off 11 straight points. All five starters scored in the run as the Spartans took a 67-39 lead with 12 minutes to play. The lead only grew from that point on. Hickman, UNCG’s leading scorer at 17.2 ppg coming into the game, led all scorers with 19 points. Josh Gross and Ray Bristow each added 15 points, while Burrell had 16 points and nine rebounds. Kevin Oleksiak came off the bench to add 11 points for UNCG. Kerry Atkinson led Guilford with 15 points to pace four double-figure scorers. Lawhorn finished with 10 points. Hines tied his own school-record with his seven blocks. He also added five steals, one shy of a school record, and shot 6-for-7 from the floor against Guilford. For the game, UNCG converted 29 Guilford turnovers into 41 points, a season-high for UNCG this season. UNCG also had 50 points in the paint, the third time this season UNCG has topped the 50-point mark. The Spartans entered the game scoring 54% of their points inside the lane.

LYNCHBURG, VA – Ronnie Burrell, Ricky Hickman and Kyle Hines combined for 62 of UNC Greensboro’s 74 points as the Spartans won for the sixth time in eight games this season, defeating Liberty University, 74-69. Burrell finished with 25 points, his tenth career 20-point game. Hickman added 21 points, making UNCG a perfect 6-0 this season when he scores 15 or more points. Hines, who began the week ranked second in the nation in blocked shots, finished the night with 16 points, eight rebounds and six blocked shots. He has scored in double-figures in seven of eight games this season and has recorded five or more blocked shots in five out of eight. Liberty, playing just its second home game of the season and one of only four it will have in its first 15 games this season, did not find the friendly confines of the Vines Center very cordial in the early going. The Spartans scored the first 12 points of the game, while Liberty struggled to get anything going offensively. Against a three-quarter court press from UNCG, the Flames turned the ball over four times in their first five possessions and went the first 4:45 without a basket. The Spartans maintained that double-digit lead throughout a good portion of the first half as Liberty had no answer for Ronnie Burrell and Ricky Hickman. Burrell hit six of his first eight shots from the floor and scored 13 points in the first 13 minutes. Hickman added 12 first-half points as UNCG took a 37-28 lead into the locker room. The Flames, the defending Big South Conference champions, opened the second half with an 14-4 run to take their first lead of the game, 42-41, with just under 15 minutes to play. But UNCG responded with seven straight points on a soft jumper by Burrell, a three-pointer by Hickman, and a putback by Kyle Hines to regain a lead it would not surrender. UNCG got the lead back to double-figures, but Liberty made things interesting with just over a minute left. UNCG held a 12-point lead, 71-59, but Liberty cut that in half with a pair of three-pointers five seconds apart. David Dees knocked down a three-pointer and Larry Blair stole the inbounds pass and knocked down another three-pointer to make it a 71-65 lead. UNCG had a chance to put the game away at the foul line in the final minute, but missed four out of six from the line. Liberty, however, could not take advantage, getting no closer than four points in the final seconds.. Dwon Clifton made his first appearance of the season for UNCG, returning from a leg injury. He played seven minutes off of the bench, but did not take a shot. Leo Lightbourne led Liberty with 13 points and eight rebounds. The win was UNCG’s third in nine trips to the Vines Center. The Spartans and the Flames were conference rivals when UNCG was a member of the Big South in the early 1990’s.

GREENSBORO, NC – Forward Ronnie Burrell scored 22 points and hauled in 10 rebounds to lead UNC Greensboro to an 84-62 win over William & Mary and give UNCG its best start in 10 years. The Spartans’ 7-2 start is the best since Mike Dement’s 1994-95 club opened the season 7-2 on its way to the Big South Regular Season Championship. It was also UNCG’s seventh-straight win at Fleming Gymnasium. Burrell’s 22 points marked his second straight 20-point game and, coupled with his 10 rebounds, was his 10th career double-double. He also went over the 750-point mark for his career in continuing his attempt to become the 13th Spartan to record 1,000 career points. Sophomore guard Ricky Hickman added 20 points, his fifth 20-point game of the season, along with five assists, three blocked shots and five steals. The win made UNCG 7-0 when Hickman scores 15 or more points. UNCG freshman Kyle Hines also had another spectacular night. Hines finished with 16 points, nine rebounds and six blocks. Over the three games in five days span, Hines had 19 blocked shots while averaging 15.7 points and 9.7 rebounds per game and shooting 62% from the floor. Against William & Mary, UNCG had a team total of 13 blocked shots, a school record. It marked the second-straight game that UNCG blocked 10 or more shots. When UNCG got it going, the Spartans were impressive. UNCG went the first 4:15 without a field goal as the Tribe opened with an 8-2 lead. However, UNCG responded with 16 straight points as a part of a 20-1 run that gave them a 13-point lead, 22-9. William & Mary got to within six points late in the first half, 36-30, before the a three-pointer by Ricky Hickman and a lay-up by Kyle Hines gave UNCG a nine-point lead going into intermission. But, on the way to the locker room, Tribe coach Tony Shaver got hit with a technical foul. When UNCG came out of the locker room, Burrell hit two free throws that began a 10-0 run to open the second half. Burrell had eight of those 10 points as UNCG took control for good. William & Mary got no closer than 13 points the rest of the way. The Spartans dominated in the paint again. UNCG outscored the Tribe, 56-16, in the paint, which contributed to UNCG shooting 51.6 percent from the field. William & Mary was led by Laimis Kisielius’ 15 points, including three threepointers. Cofield, the 2004 Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Year, was held scoreless, going 0-for-3 from the field, and grabbed just two rebounds before fouling out in 25 minutes of action.

MADISON, WI – Mike Wilkinson sparked a key second half run and finished with 20 points as Wisconsin turned away UNC Greensboro, 85-53, at the Kohl Center. Alando Tucker led Wisconsin with 21 points and 15 rebounds. He scored 17 of his 21 in the second half when Wisconsin outscored UNCG, 56-31. Ricky Hickman led UNCG with 14 points, his seventh straight double-figure scoring effort. Ronnie Burrell added 12 points. With the win, Wisconsin extended its homecourt winning streak to 34 consecutive games, the longest current streak in the nation and a new schoolrecord, eclipsing a record that stood since 1915. The Spartans trailed by seven at the intermission, but were fortunate in some ways to only be down by that. The first half was much of a see-saw until the closing minutes, thanks in part to horrendous foul shooting by the Badgers. Wisconsin shot just 6-for-19 from the free throw line, including a 1-for-13 start, in the first half. The Badgers had a 29-13 advantage on the glass, including 16 offensive rebounds, but converted those offensive rebounds into just nine secondchance points. The Spartans, however, played most of the first half without Kyle Hines, the nation’s leading shot blocker who picked up two early fouls in eight minutes of action, and part of the half without Burrell, who picked up his second foul with 4:22 left before intermission. Hines wound up fouling out, scoring four points in just 16 minutes of action. It was only the second time this season that the freshman from Sicklerville, NJ had not scored in double-figures. With UNCG leading 22-21 at the 3:40 mark, Wisconsin scored the final eight points of the first half to take a 29-22 lead into halftime. Wisconsin, which has won 42 out of 46 under coach Bo Ryan when holding opponents under 62 points, opened up the second half with a 7-2 run, five of the points coming from Wilkerson, to take its first double-digit lead of the night, 36-24. The lead expanded to 17 before the Spartans made a run of their own, scoring six straight to close to within 12, 43-32. But Wisconsin took control from there, breaking out on a 16-3 spurt to go up by 24. For the game, the Badgers held a 50-23 margin on the glass.

GREENSBORO, NC – Senior forward Ronnie Burrell scored 19 points, including a pair of three-pointers in an early second half run, as UNC Greensboro defeated Wofford, 61-44, in Southern Conference men’s basketball at Fleming Gymnasium. Burrell, who entered the game with just four career three-pointers – two in each of the last two seasons, knocked down a trey to open the second half and added another just over two minutes later to cap a 16-4 run that began late in the first half and ended with UNCG holding a 39-26 lead. Wofford battled back with an 11-2 run to close the gap to 41-37. A jumper by Howard Wilkerson capped the run at the 11:09 mark. Wilkerson, a pre-season All-SoCon selection, finished the game with a team-high 12 points. However, UNCG responded with a run that put the game away. The Terriers were held to just seven points over the final 11 minutes, including a 12-0 run capped off by Ray Bristow’s three-pointer from the right wing as the shot clock expired. Bristow’s shot broke the Terriers’ backs with 2:17 to play, giving UNCG a commanding 17-point lead. Bristow, a junior from Winston-Salem, NC, finished the game with 12 points. Kyle Hines, a freshman from Sicklerville, NJ recorded his sixth double-double of the season with 15 points and 11 rebounds. He also blocked three shots, extending his season total to 51 and making him the fastest Spartan to 50 blocked shots in a season. He entered the game ranked third in the nation in blocked shots at 4.5 per contest. Burrell’s 19 points put him over the 800-point mark for his career and was his 10th double-digit scoring effort of the season. Neither team got off to a great start from the field. Wofford missed 11 of its first 12 from the field, while UNCG failed on eight of its first 11 shots from the floor. The Spartans broke an 11-11 tie with six straight points midway through the first half, a margin that held fairly firm until UNCG’s big run early in the second half. UNCG won its SoCon opener for the second straight season. The Spartans held a 16-9 advantage in points off turnovers, despite committing 18 turnovers to Wofford’s 14. UNCG is 8-0 this season when scoring more points off turnovers than the opposition.

MINNEAPOLIS – A season-high 26 turnovers by UNC Greensboro, coupled by hot shooting by Minnesota led to a wire-to-wire 94-59 Gopher win in nonconference men’s basketball action at Williams Arena. Vincent Grier, who entered the night second in the Big Ten in scoring at 17.6 ppg, led Minnesota with 25 points in 24 minutes of action. The Gophers, who shot 58.6 percent (34-58) from the field for the game, won their sixth-straight in raising their record to 8-3 on the season. Ronnie Burrell led UNCG with 18 points, his ninth double-digit scoring performance of the season and fifth in a row. Kyle Hines added 10 points, four rebounds and three blocks, also his ninth double-figure scoring game of the season. Ricky Hickman also chipped in 15 points, his eighth-straight double-digit scoring game and 10th in 11 games. UNCG got off to a rough start against the host Gophers. The Spartans committed 10 turnovers in the first seven minutes as Minnesota opened the game with a 20-4 run. UNCG regained its composure to score the next six points and cut the lead to 10, but that was as close as the Spartans would get. Minnesota took control after that, running off nine straight points and eventually opening the lead up to 23, 41-18. For the first half, the Spartans shot 56.5 percent from the floor (13-23), but they committed 15 turnovers in the first 20 minutes and Minnesota shot 68 percent from the floor (21-31) to have UNCG trailing, 51-27, at the intermission. The loss marked the second-straight for UNCG and the third of the season to a Big Ten team. It was also the first time in eight games that UNCG had lost when Hickman scored 15 or more points.

Game 15 • UNCG 66, W. Carolina 54 (Jan. 15)

BOONE, NC — Kyle Hines scored a career-high 23 points to lead UNC Greensboro to an 84-79 win over Appalachian State. Hines connected on his first eight shots from the field and finished the afternoon 11-for-13. It was the second 20-point game of the season for the freshman from Sickerlville, NJ. Ray Bristow added a season-high 20 points for UNCG. UNCG, off to its best overall start in 10 years, moved to 9-4 overall. It is the first time since 1999-2000 that UNCG started the SoCon season with two wins. The Spartans won for the fourth time in their last five trips to Boone and snapped Appalachian State’s six-game home winning streak. The Mountaineers started out quickly, scoring the game’s first eight points. UNCG battled back from the early deficit to tie the game, 22-22, after Dustin Everette’s conventional three-point play. Appalachian State opened up a three-point lead before UNCG stormed back and took its first lead of the game, 30-28, on Josh Gross’ putback with 5:33 left in the first half. The teams see-sawed back and forth from there with UNCG taking a 40-37 lead into the locker room behind Hines’ 12 first-half points and Bristow’s 10. Hines shot 6-for-6 from the floor in the first half. The Spartans held that lead despite the fact that Ronnie Burrell was held scoreless and took just one shot from the field and Ricky Hickman, who entered the game right behind Burrell at 16.6 ppg, was just 1-for-5 from the field and scored just two points in the first half. Burrell didn’t score until the 10:26 mark of the second half and finished with just eight points, but did have a career-high five assists to go with 10 rebounds. UNCG took control early in the second half. With 15:29 to play, Josh Gross knocked down a three-pointer from the top of the key to give UNCG a 50-43 advantage. After Chris McFarland scored on a jumper for Appalachian State, Hickman converted a four-point playwhen he knocked down a three-pointer from the left corner and was fouled. After a UNCG stop on the other end, Gross putback Hines’ first miss of the afternoon to give the Spartans their first double-digit lead of the game. After an ASU timeout, Hines converted a conventional three-point play to give UNCG its biggest lead of the day at 59-45. The Mountaineers, however, made a oneman run when Nathan Cranford knocked down a pair of three-pointers from the right corner, the second of which he converted into a four-point play after he was fouled, to pull within seven. UNCG maintained its seven-point for most of the next eight minutes, but Appalachian State made a run with three minutes to play. Demetrius Scott drained a three-pointer with 1:58 to play, capping a 6-0 run to cut the UNCG lead to three, 7572. After a UNCG timeout, Bristow was called for an offensive foul trying to break the Mountaineers’ full-court pressure. However, the Mountaineers couldn’t convert as Derek Thomas was called for an offensive foul trying to put back a Mountaineer miss. After that, the Spartans knocked down 9-of-10 from the line in the final 1:50 to clinch the victory.

GREENVILLE, SC -- Furman University used a red-hot shooting first half and then held on through a couple of late runs on to defeat UNC Greensboro, 82-65. Ray Bristow led UNCG with 18 points, including four three-pointers. Ronnie Burrell added 15 points and Ricky Hickman chipped in with 14 points and five steals. With the loss, UNCG fell to 9-5, 2-1 in Southern Conference play. The Spartans were trying to open conference play 3-0 for the first time since moving to the SoCon. Furman raised its record to 9-6, 2-1 in SoCon action. Much like UNCG’s game at Appalachian State two days earlier, the Spartans started out slowly at Furman. UNCG made just two field goals in the first seven minutes and falling behind early, 15-5. Furman came into the game as the nation’s leader in three-point field goals with 152, having made 10 or more three-pointers in seven of 14 games and shooting a SoCon best 44.2 percent from behind the arc. After establishing an inside game with Moussa Diagne (12 first-half points) in the early going, the Paladins knocked down 5-of-8 from behind the three-point line over the final 12:54 of the first half and stretched their lead to 41-21 at halftime. The Paladins got every bounce in the first 20 minutes, outrebounding UNCG, 23-8, in the first half and shooting 56 percent to the Spartans’ 35 percent. The Spartans started to make a run midway through the second half. UNCG ran off six straight points to gain some momentum and cut the deficit to 18. Forcing turnovers with their full-court pressure, the Spartans cut the Furman lead to 65-51 with just over five minutes to play to make things interesting. But UNCG could get no closer than 14 points as Furman remained unbeaten at home this season (6-0) and ran its homecourt winning streak to eight consecutive games. Tony Carter and Robby Bostain led Furman with 18 and 17 points, respectively, to lead four Paladins in double-figures. Diagne also added 16 points and eight rebounds. The Paladins wound up 9-for-19 from three-point range and shot 50 percent (30-for-60) from the field overall on the evening. The home team has won all eight regular-season meetings in the series.

GREENSBORO, NC – Kyle Hines recorded his conference-leading seventh double-double of the season with 20 points and 12 rebounds as UNC Greensboro won its ninth consecutive game at Fleming Gymnasium, 66-54, over Western Carolina in Southern Conference men’s basketball action. UNCG, which became 7-0 on the season when holding opponents under 70 points and won its 13th straight when doing so dating back to December 2004, jumped all over the Catamounts early. Western Carolina made its first shot of the game, a layup by Corey Muirhead at 19:27, and then proceeded to miss its next 16 shots from the field. The Catamounts also committed six turnovers during a 10:02 scoreless span. It wasn’t until the 9:25 mark when David Berghoefer made a lay-up that Western Carolina scored again. Before that, UNCG had scored 15 unanswered points. Western Carolina closed to within seven with an 8-2 run, but UNCG scored 11 of the final 16 points of the half to take a 13-point lead into the locker room. UNCG took control midway through the second half and opened its largest lead of the game. Leading 36-24, the Spartans went on a 13-5 run, capped off by Josh Gross’ three-pointer, to give UNCG a 49-29 advantage. The Catamounts went on a run late to make things interesting. Trailing by 18 with 3:08 to go, Western scored nine of the next 12 points to close to within 12 with 1:09 to play. But UNCG made 4-of-6 at the line in the final minute and Hines added a dunk to put an exclamation point on the victory. Along with Hines’ third 20-point game of the season, Burrell added 11 points and Ray Bristow, who moved back into the starting line-up for the first time since November, chipped in 14 points and three steals. Hines, the No. 2 shot blocker in the nation, had four blocked shots to give him 60 blocked shots on the season. Hines, a native of Sickerville, NJ and product of Timber Creek HS, became only the second Spartan in UNCG’s Division I era to block 60 shots in a season. Western Carolina had two players with double-doubles. David Berghoefer led the Catamounts 17 points and 12 rebounds. Corey Muirhead chipped in with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Rans Brempong, the Southern Conference career blocked shot leader, tied a school-record with seven blocks.

GREENSBORO, NC – Kevin Oleksiak knocked down one of two free throws with 2.2 seconds remaining in overtime and East Tennessee State’s Tim Smith missed a desperation shot at the buzzer as UNC Greensboro knocked off the defending Southern Conference champion Buccaneers, 79-76, at Fleming Gymnasium The win gave UNCG a share of first place in the SoCon’s North Division. It was also UNCG’s 10th straight win at Fleming Gymnasium. UNCG also matched its win-total from a year earlier with the victory. Ronnie Burrell led the Spartans with 18 points and 11 rebounds, one of four Spartans to score in double-figures. Ricky Hickman added 17 points and five steals. Tim Smith finished with 22 points to lead ETSU. Despite shooting just 1-for-5 from the field in the first half and turning the ball over four times, Smith rebounded to score 20 points in the second half and the extra session. Dillion Sneed had a double-double for the Bucs with 18 points and 12 rebounds. In the first half, the Spartans found themselves down by double-digits at home for the first time all season. The Bucs used a 16-2 run to take a 21-11 lead with 7:52 left in the first half. Ben Rhoda had seven of his 17 points in the run. The lead reached 12 when Smith’s lay-up at the 2:55 mark made it a 29-17 game. But UNCG scored eight of the final 12 points of the first half to cut the margin to eight going into the locker room. However, in the second half, UNCG came out much more aggressive. After Dillion Sneed opened the second half with a jumper in the lane to give ETSU a 10-point advantage, UNCG went on an 8-2 run to close to within four. For a while, it looked like UNCG wouldn’t get over the hump. On three separate possessions, the Spartans trailed by four and missed open three-pointers. Ricky Hickman got a steal and a lay-up to cut it a two, 45-43, with 13:40 to play. Again, the Bucs stretched the lead out to nine, going on a 9-2 run to take a 5445 lead. This time, however, UNCG had enough in its tank to get over the hump. The Spartans scored the next 10 points, eight of them by Hickman, to take a 55-54 lead. The teams went back-and-forth for the remainder of regulation. There were six lead changes and four ties in the final eight minutes before overtime. UNCG had a chance to win it at end of regulation. Smith knocked down two free throws with 22 seconds left to tie the score. After a UNCG timeout, Burrell missed a 15-footer with four seconds to play. Josh Gross had a tip at the rebound as time expired, but the shot wouldn’t go down and the teams went to overtime. ETSU never led in the extra-session, but the margin was never more than one possession. Gross broke a 74-74 tie with a three-pointer from the left corner with 2:02 to play. After a pair of free throws by Ben Rhoda cut the margin to one with 1:06 to play, Burrell missed a three-pointer from the top of the key with 36 seconds left. However, Hickman ran down the rebound to give UNCG the ball without a shotclock, forcing ETSU to foul. Oleksiak, a 90 percent free throw shooter coming into the game, hit 1-of-2 free throws to with 26 seconds left to the Spartans a 78-76 lead. ETSU missed two shots on its ensuing possession, the second of which was blocked by Kyle Hines but rebounded by Rhoda. However, Rhoda passed to Travis Strong, who was called for traveling when he lost his balance in a crowd. After three timeouts, two called to set up the in-bounds and a third to avoid a five-second violation, the Spartans got the ball in to Oleksiak. He appeared to be trapped by three ETSU defenders. Despite falling down while trying to dribble through the trap, Oleksiak managed to keep his dribble and get fouled. He then sank 1-of-2 at the line and the Spartans held their collective breath as Smith’s desperation heave from half-court hit wildly off the backboard.

CHARLESTON, SC – UNC Greensboro rallied twice from double-digit deficits – once in each half – and knocked down 9-of-10 free throws in the final 1:35 to defeat The Citadel, 78-68, and hand the Bulldogs their first home loss of the season. It is the first time UNCG has started Southern Conference play 5-1 since joining the league prior to the 1997-98 season. It was also UNCG’s seventh win in the last eight meetings against The Citadel. The Spartans had all five starters score in double-figures, led by Kyle Hines’ 15 points before he fouled out with 4:36 to play. Josh Gross was key down the stretch after Hines fouled out, finishing with 13 points. Ronnie Burrell had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, while Ricky Hickman and Ray Bristow chipped in with 13 and 10 points, respectively. The Citadel was led by Donny McClendon’s 21 points, including five threepointers. Warren McClendon added 17 points for the Bulldogs. The loss snapped The Citadel’s eight-game home winning streak. For the game, UNCG shot 49 percent from the field (29-49) against the SoCon leader in field goal defense. The Citadel was holding opponents to just 38.9 percent shooting entering the contest and was also second in the SoCon in scoring defense at 64.3 ppg. The Bulldogs got off to a fast start, forcing eight UNCG turnovers in the first seven minutes, to jump out to a 13-4 lead. The Citadel, which entered the game next-to-last in the SoCon three-point field goal percentage, extended its lead to 22-9 with three threepointers. The Spartans slowly climbed back in it and took the lead, holding the Bulldogs to just one field goal over 8:33 to take a 29-26 lead. However, Donny McLendon picked up a loose ball and knocked down a 25-footer at the buzzer to tie the score at intermission. In UNCG’s 14-4 run to close out the half, Kyle Hines scored six of his 10 first half points. The Citadel came out and scored the first five points of the second half to retake the lead. The lead was stretched back out to 10 with 12:10 to play thanks to a 7-2 Bulldog run. A second-half scuffle, however, got the Spartans fired up. After a dunk by the Bulldogs Warren McClendon, McClendon stared down Hines, who had fouled him on the play. Players from both sides began pushing and shoving, resulting in a doubletechnical. After McClendon made his free throw, however, UNCG went on an 10-0 run to close back to tie the game, 53-53, with just under 10 minutes to play. The teams battled back and forth over the next eight minutes with neither team leading by more than four points. Josh Gross gave UNCG a two-point lead with 1:47 to play and then grabbed a loose ball on the ensuing possession and got fouled. He knocked down both foul shots to give UNCG its biggest lead of the game to that point, 71-67, and beginning UNCG’s clutch free throw string. UNCG won its 14th straight when holding the opposition under 70 points dating back to December 2003.

CHARLESTON, SC – Stanley Jackson scored a career-high 26 points and Bernard Jackson added 19 points to lead College of Charleston to a 79-67 win over UNC Greensboro at Kresse Arena. Ronnie Burrell led UNCG with 23 points and 10 rebounds, his fifth-straight double-digit scoring effort and 11th in the last 12 games. It was also the 12th 20point game and the 13th double-double of his career, including six double-doubles on the season, for Burrell. Kyle Hines also added 13 points for UNCG. The loss kept UNCG winless all-time at Kresse Arena. UNCG fell to 0-7 all-time at Kresse. College of Charleston improved to 47-4 all-time against SoCon opponents at Kresse with the win. For the fifth straight road game, the Spartans sputtered out of the gate. College of Charleston jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the game’s first two minutes, causing McCaffery to call an early timeout. College of Charleston went cold and the Spartans settled down after the timeout. UNCG rallied to take the lead with a 25-8 run. The Spartans tied the game, 13-13, on a jumper by Burrell and took their first lead of the night at the 11:32 mark on a conventional three-point play by Dustin Everette. The UNCG lead reached double-digits when Burrell converted a conventional three-point play of his own to make it 28-16 with seven minutes left in the first half. But the Cougars got back in it with a 14-3 run to close within a point, 31-30, jumpstarted by back-to-back dunks by Stanley Jackson. The teams battled back and forth over the final two minutes of the first half before Bernard Jackson’s two free throws with 17.4 seconds left gave College of Charleston the lead again, 36-35, a slim advantage it took into the locker room. The teams picked up right where they left off at the start the second half, see-sawing back and forth. Neither team could open up a lead of more than three points until Robert Swain’s three-pointer from the right corner gave College of Charleston a six-point advantage, 52-46, with 11:03 to play. The Spartans got to within three points a couple of times, but the Cougars opened up a 10-point lead on Stanley Jackson’s tip-in with 5:51 to play, 63-53. The Spartans battled back one more time. UNCG got back to within 67-61 on Ray Bristow’s three-pointer from the left wing with 4:10 to play. Hines followed with two free throws with 3:35 to play to cut it to four. But that was as close as they would get as College of Charleston made 8-of-9 at the foul line in the final two minutes to put the game away.

Game 19 • UNCG 62, Chattanooga 57 (Jan. 29)

Game 20 • Elon 54, UNCG 50 (Jan. 31)

Game 21 • Davidson 78, UNCG 69 (Feb. 5)

GREENSBORO,NC – Ricky Hickman, who had missed all eight of his shots in the game - six from the field and a pair of free throw attempts, knocked down three free throws in the final 6.8 seconds to play to cap an improbable comeback and lift UNC Greensboro to a 62-57 come-from-behind victory over Chattanooga. The win marked the third time in four games that UNCG rallied from a double-digit deficit in the second half to pull out a victory. It was UNCG’s 11th win in a row at Fleming Gymnasium, establishing a new school record for consecutive homecourt wins. It was also UNCG’s 15th consecutive win when holding the opposition under 70 points dating back to December 2003. Kyle Hines led UNCG with 24 points and 14 rebounds for his SoCon leading eighth double-double of the season. It was also his fourth 20-point game of the season. Ray Bristow added 20 points, 15 of those coming in the second half. He knocked down five three-pointers in the game, four of those in the final 18:15. In addition to his double-double, Hines broke the UNCG single-season record for blocks. He blocked his 68th shot of the season six minutes into the game to equal the school mark. Hines broke the record later seven minutes later when he blocked a lay-up attempt from behind. UNCG started out slowly thanks in-part to Chattanooga’s pressure defense. The Spartans turned the ball over five times in the first five minutes, falling behind, 9-4, and it didn’t get better for the remainder of the half. Entering the game, UNCG averaged 17.4 turnovers per game. The Spartans committed 17 turnovers in the first half, which Chattanooga converted into 21 points. As a result, the Spartans had their lowest scoring first half of the season and found themselves down, 38-19, at the half. Employing full court pressure of their own, UNCG scored the first seven points of the second half to get back to with 12. The Mocs went on a 9-4 run to take the lead back to 17, but UNCG responded by scoring the next eight points to get the deficit back to single-digits, 47-38, with just under eight minutes to play. After Chattanooga briefly got the lead back to double-digits, UNCG ran off nine straight points. A three-pointer by Ray Bristow from the left corner and a lay-up by Hines cut it to 55-49 with 4:30 to play. Bristow then knocked down another three-pointer, this one from the left wing, to cut it to 55-52 with 3:03 to play. After a Mocs turnover, Hines was fouled going to the basket and hit one of two at the line. Chattanooga missed three shots on its next possession before UNCG finally grabbed a rebound. Then Bristow knocked down his fourth three-pointer of the second half with 1:06 to play to give UNCG its first lead of the night, 56-55. Ronnie Burrell followed that with a steal and a dunk to give UNCG a three-point lead with 47.7 seconds left. Chattanooga’s Matt Malone followed with a tip in with 33 seconds left, the Mocs’ first field goal since the 6:06 mark, to make it 58-57. The Mocs fouled Bristow two seconds later, who knocked down 1-of-2 to make it a two-point game. Chattanooga missed three shots on its next possession before a tie-up gave the Mocs the ball on the alternating possession with 12.9 seconds left. After a timeout, Hickman stole a pass and was fouled with 6.8 seconds left. Hickman, who had not scored all night, missed his first and made the second to give UNCG a three-point advantage. Hickman stole the ball again and knocked down two more from the line with 0.8 seconds left to cap the furious rally.

ELON, NC – Kyle Hines tied a school-record with 19 rebounds to go along with 14 points and six blocked shots, but it wasn’t enough to thwart Elon’s upset bid in defeating UNC Greensboro, 54-50. The win snapped a 14-game losing streak for the Phoenix (3-19, 1-8). Elon, whose last win came against Division III Greensboro College, had not beaten a Division I opponent since the opening game of the season back on November 17. With the loss, UNC Greensboro missed on a chance to take sole possession of first place in the Southern Conference’s North Division. The Spartans also lost for the eighth time in nine visits to Alumni Gymnasium. The game was tight throughout, as neither team held more than a four-point advantage until the final seconds. Despite recording just one field goal in the final six minutes of the first half, Elon held a 26-25 lead at the intermission. The Spartans opened the second half with a 10-5 run, capped by Josh Gross’ dunk, to take its biggest lead of the night, 35-31. But the Phoenix scored eight of the next 10 points to regain a 39-37 advantage with just under nine minutes to play. After Ronnie Burrell’s lay-up tied the score, 39-39, Ryan Jones hit one of two free throws to give Elon the lead for good, 40-39. The Spartans had several chances to tie or take the lead in the final five minutes, but Elon stretched the lead to five, 48-43, with 1:08 to play when Brian Waters made 1-of-2 at the line. UNCG got back to within a bucket, 50-48, with 27 seconds left when Ricky Hickman banked a three-pointer in from the top of the key. Hickman finished with 11 points and nine rebounds. However, Elon’s Chris Chalko knocked down a pair of foul shots four seconds later and UNCG failed to convert on its next possession and was again forced to foul. Elon’s Ryan Jones missed both free throws this time and Hickman drove the lane and cut the lead to two again with a lay-up, 52-50, with nine seconds left. After a UNCG timeout, the Spartans fouled again. This time, however, Scottie Rice knocked down both free throws to clinch the win. Hines, a native of Sicklerville, NJ who had 24 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks in Saturday’s win over Chattanooga, tied the UNCG record set by Eric Cuthrell on December 7, 1994 against Appalachian State. Hines broke Cuthrell’s single-season blocked shot record earlier in the season.

GREENSBORO, NC – Kenny Grant established new career-highs with 21 points and eight rebounds and Brendan Winters scored 22 points, including five three-pointers, as Davidson won its 10th game in a row and snapped UNC Greensboro’s 11-game homecourt winning streak, 78-69. Davidson, which entered the day with the seventh-longest winning streak in the nation, remained perfect in the Southern Conference with an 11-0 conference mark to go with a 15-7 overall record. UNC Greensboro, which lost for the third time in the last four games, fell to 13-8 overall and 6-4 in conference play. The Spartans remained tied atop the Southern Conference’s North Division standings with Chattanooga, which lost at home to Elon on Saturday afternoon. Davidson remained atop the SoCon’s South Division. UNC Greensboro was led by Josh Gross’ career-high 18 points. He was one of five Spartans in double-figures. Ronnie Burrell added his seventh double-double of the season and the 14th of his career with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Ricky Hickman added 14 points and Kevin Oleksiak and Ray Bristow chipped in with 11 and 10 points, respectively. Davidson jumped out to a quick 8-0 lead before UNC Greensboro settled down. The Spartans, sparked by a tremendous block by Burrell from behind, went on a 13-2 run after the block to open up a 17-12 lead midway through the first half. However, UNCG committed 17 first half turnovers, which proved costly as Davidson took a 31-28 lead into halftime. The Wildcats stretched the lead to 10 points with 14:07 to play on a threepointer by Jason Richards. UNCG got the margin back to five less than a minute later on a pair of shots by Ray Bristow, the second a three-pointer that got the crowd of 1,339 back into it. But Davidson countered with an 11-3 run, with Winters accounting for five of those points, to take its largest lead to that point, 59-46. After that, UNCG would not get closer than seven (68-61). UNCG’s 11-game winning streak at home had established a new school record and was its first setback this season. The Spartans last prior loss at Fleming Gymnasium was on February 17, 2004 against Appalachian State, 82-60. Davidson held Kyle Hines in-check most of the night. Hines was held to six points and six rebounds and did not record a blocked shot for the first time all season. Hines entered the game with 79 blocked shots on the year, already a UNCG single-season record and ranking second in the nation.

GREENSBORO, NC – Kyle Hines grabbed a Fleming Gymnasium record 18 rebounds to go with 16 points and six blocked shots, but it wasn’t enough as Georgia Southern handed the Spartans their second straight home loss, 85-79. The Eagles were led by Donte Gennie’s 20 points. Jean Francois added 19 points for the Eagles, while Elton Nesbit added 17 points, including 6-for-6 from the line in the final 1:36. Hines, a native of Sicklerville, NJ, broke the record of 15 rebounds accomplished three times before by UNCG players. The Southern Conference’s leading rebounder recorded his 10th double-double of the season, also tops in the SoCon. After being held without a block for the first time all season in UNCG’s loss to Davidson on Saturday night, Hines took 16 seconds to record his first swat on Monday. He finished the night with six rejections to raise his UNCG single-season record total to 85, eight shy of the Southern Conference’s freshman record. UNCG also got 19 points and five assists from Ricky Hickman, 14 points and eight rebounds from Ronnie Burrell and 14 points from Ray Bristow. UNCG, which has been tied or trailing at halftime in each of the last seven games, found itself down by 10, 41-31, with 1:24 left in the first half. However, the Spartans scored the last six points of the half to pull within 41-37 at intermission. The margin stayed close for the first few minutes of the second half before the Eagles went on an 11-4 run to open the lead back up to 10, 60-50. A pair of buckets by Gennie and a three-pointer by Terry Williams keyed the run. Williams finished the night with nine points and nine assists. The Spartans rallied, using an 11-4 run of their own to get back to within three, 64-61, with 9:24 to play. Bristow started the run with a three-pointer and later capped it off with a lay-up on a fast break. Nearly five minutes later, UNCG took its first lead since early in the first half. Burrell hit a jumper in the lane with 4:58 to play to give the Spartans a 71-70 advantage. But the lead would be short-lived as Georgia Southern went on a 9-2 run to take a 79-73 lead with 1:36 to play. From there, the Eagles knocked down all eight free throw attempts to put the game away. For the night, Georgia Southern was 19-of-20 from the free throw line. UNC Greensboro also broke a team record on Tuesday night. With 12 blocked shots in the game, UNCG now has 138 blocks as a team this season, eclipsing the old record of 137 set in 1993-94. It was also the fourth time this year that the Spartans have blocked 10 or more shots in a game.

JOHNSON CITY, TN – James Anthony set a school-record with eight three-pointers on his way to 30 points as East Tennessee State defeated UNC Greensboro, 105-78. The win snapped East Tennessee State’s seven-game losing skid. The loss for UNCG’s was its fourth in a row and prevented them from gaining a share of first place in the Southern Conference’s North Division. Ronnie Burrell led UNCG with 33 points, his first career 30-point performance. It tied for the third-highest scoring performance by a UNCG player in the university’s Division I era. It was his fifth 20-point game of the season and the 13th of his career. It left him five points shy of 1,000 for his career. Along with Anthony’s outside shooting, Tim Smith, who shot just 2-for-17 from the field in a 22-point loss to Appalachian State on Wednesday night, was on fire. He knocked down eight-of-10 shots in the first half and finished with 25 points and eight assists on the afternoon For the game, East Tennessee State knocked down 15-of-25 three-point field goal attempts. The 15 three-pointers tied an ETSU record. The Bucs jumped out to a quick 13-3 lead in the game’s opening minutes. Ricky Hickman’s three-pointer at 16:40 was UNCG’s first field goal and began a 12-6 run to pull UNCG back to within four, 19-15. But UNCG’s first half turnover struggles continued again. Over the previous seven games, UNCG had averaged 12 turnovers in the first half and just six in the second half. Against the Bucs, UNCG had 10 in the first 12 minutes and ETSU took advantage, using a 14-2 run to extend its lead to 33-17. It didn’t get much better from there as a red-hot shooting East Tennessee State team knocked down nine of its first 12 from three-point range and led by as many 37 in the first half. The Bucs wound up shooting 68.4 percent (26-for-38) from the field in the half and took a 64-29 lead into the locker room behind 19 points each from Smith and Anthony. Coming out of the locker room, UNCG showed it wasn’t about to pack it in. The Spartans extended their defense the full-length of the court and scored the first 10 points of the second half to cut the margin to 25 with 17 minutes to play. But although UNCG would make several runs in the second half, it got no closer. UNCG, which beat the Bucs in Greensboro in overtime, 79-76, three weeks earlier, lost its fifth straight game at Memorial Center. In those five games, ETSU has averaged 92 points and has not scored less than 84 points.

CHATTANOOGA, TN – Charles Anderson scored 15 points and was a perfect 7-for-7 from the field to lead five Chattanooga players in double-figures as the Mocs defeated UNC Greensboro, 82-68. The loss was the fifth-straight for the Spartans, who missed on a chance to climb back into the North Division title race and fell to 13-11 overall and 6-7 in Southern Conference play. Chattanooga remained atop the North Division with an 8-5 mark in conference action and a 15-9 record overall. The Mocs, who entered the game next-to-last in the SoCon in three-point field goal percentage at 28.2 percent, made 6-of-10 from three-point range in the first half and 8-for-17 for the game. Junior Ray Bristow led the Spartans with 19 points, one shy of a career-high. Ronnie Burrell added 12 points, including the 1000th of his career. Burrell became the 13th player in UNCG history to record 1,000 career points and the ninth to do so in UNCG’s Division I era. He reached the milestone at the 15:26 mark of the second half on a conventional three-pointer play. In 101 career games, Burrell now has 1,015 career points. He is only the fourth player in the university’s Division I era to record 1,000 career points and 500 career rebounds. The Mocs used a 13-5 run to open up the first double-digit lead of the night, 22-12, with 11:35 left in the first half. Compounding matters, Burrell picked up his second foul with 10:26 left in the first half. The Spartans cut the deficit to six, 30-24, before Chattanooga scored the next seven points to trigger a 13-3 run, capped off with a three-pointer by Pugh, to give the Mocs a 43-27 advantage. For the half, the Mocs shot 59.2 percent from the floor, including a perfect 6-for-6 by Charles Anderson to account for his halftime-high 12 points, to take a 48-33 lead into intermission. Midway through the second half, the Spartans made a run. Trailing by 15 with just under 11 minutes to play, Brian Beckford converted a conventional threepoint play to cut the deficit to 59-47. UNCG cut it to nine two minutes later, the first time the margin had been in single-digits since midway through the first half. Ricky Hickman knocked down a three-pointer from the top of the key to make it a 61-52 game. The teams traded a couple of baskets before UNCG started to cut back into it. Two Ray Bristow free throws with 7:07 to play made it an eight-point game, 64-56. After an offensive foul by the Mocs, Bristow hit a runner in the lane to cut the margin to six. But that is as close as UNCG would get as the Mocs made all 10 shots from the line in the final 1:23. In the second half, the Mocs hit 20-of-26 from the foul line as UNCG held Chattanooga to just 6-for-19 from the field. Chattanooga, the No. 2 team in the nation in rebound margin, held a 39-28 advantage on the glass.

GREENSBORO, NC -- UNC Greensboro shot 62% from the floor and had four players score in double-figures as the Spartans kept their hopes alive for a possible first round bye in the conference tournament with a 92-73 win over Appalachian State in Southern Conference men’s basketball action in front of a standing-room only crowd of 2,202 at Fleming Gymnasium. The Spartans recorded their best field goal percentage since November 19, 2002, hitting on 10 of their first 14 field goal attempts and not looking back. Junior guard Ricky Hickman led all scorers with 24 points to pace UNCG. Freshman forward Kyle Hines had 21 points on 9-of-10 shooting from the floor and added eight rebounds. Ray Bristow and Ronnie Burrell each added 19 points for the Spartans, who snapped a five-game losing streak. Clint Deas, a senior from Garner, NC who entered the game averaging 3.5 ppg this season, had a career-high 22 points and 11 rebounds for Appalachian State (15-10, 8-6). Prior to Saturday, Deas’ career-high was 14 points, which came earlier this month against The Citadel. The Mountaineers also had four players scoring in double-figures as D.J. Thompson added 13 points, Herbert Jones had 12 points and Noah Brown added 11 points. The game was played at a fevered-pace all night long. Despite UNCG’s hot shooting early in the game, the Spartans found themselves trailing, 30-26, with 6:25 left in the first half after Demetrius Scott knocked down a three-pointer. However, a block by Hines, the leading shot-blocker in the SoCon and No. 3 in the nation, on a dunk attempt by Deas shifted the Spartans into another gear. UNCG went on an 11-0 run over the next three minutes to take a lead that it would not surrender. A lay-up by Burrell started the run before Josh Gross scored five straight with a pair of free throws and a three-pointer off a feed by Bristow. Gross stole the ball on Appalachian State’s next possession, setting-up Hickman for a breakaway layp-up and a five-point lead. Burrell closed the run with a jumper at 3:07 to give UNCG a 37-30 lead. The teams opened the second-half in a see-saw battle. With the Mountaineers trailing by four with 12:49 to play, UNCG went on a 15-3 run to put the game out of reach. Bristow sparked the run with a three-pointer from the left corner and Hickman had six of the 15 points during the run as UNCG opened up a 68-52 lead. Appalachian State closed to within 10 with 1:50 to play, 81-71, on a threepointer by Nathan Cranford. But UNCG knocked down 11-of-12 from the free throw line, including 10 in a row to end the game, during the final 92 seconds. UNCG moved to a perfect 11-0 when leading at the half on the season and held its first halftime lead in nine games dating back to January 15.

CULLOWHEE, NC – UNC Greensboro went on an 18-5 run to close out the game and rally from a 10-point deficit to defeat Western Carolina, 79-76. With UNCG’s win, its third in a row, coupled with Appalachian State’s 58-55 loss at Elon, the Spartans earned the No. 2 seed in the Southern Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament. UNCG and Appalachian State finished with identical 9-7 SoCon records, but UNCG won both regular season meetings to gain the tie-breaker advantage. It marked the second time in five years that UNCG earned on the four precious first-round byes into the SoCon Tournament. The win was UNCG’s second in 12 trips to Cullowhee. UNCG was led by Kyle Hines’ 20 points and 12 rebounds. He recorded his sixth 20-point game and SoCon leading 11th double-double. Hines also broke the SoCon freshman record for blocks. Less than two minutes into the contest, Hines recorded his 94th blocked shot of the season, surpassing the record previously held by Western Carolina’s Rans Brempong, who was ironically celebrating senior night at WCU. UNCG also got 19 points from Ricky Hickman, including six points in one possession that turned the game around late, 15 points from Ronnie Burrell and 12 points from Josh Gross. Western Carolina was led by Negus McKenna’s game-high 21 points. David Berghoefer added 16 points and Brempong and Trey Hopkins each added 13 points. Berghoefer also grabbed 14 rebounds. For the third straight game, the Spartans got off to a fast start. Dwayne Johnson knocked down UNCG’s third three-pointer of the night to cap a 13-2 run that spanned the first three minutes of the game. Western Carolina got back in it midway through the first half. The Catamounts went on 12-2 run to close to within a point, 18-17, with 9:45 left before halftime. But Burrell scored six of UNCG’s next eight points to open the lead back up to six. The Catamounts rallied to take its first lead of the night just before half, albeit a brief one. McKenna’s basket with 33 seconds left in the first half gave Western Carolina a 38-37 lead. However, a dunk by Gross with six seconds left gave UNCG a one-point lead going into the locker room. The second half became a see-saw affair as the lead changed hands seven times over the first nine minutes. Western Carolina took its largest lead to that point when Hopkins knocked down a three-pointer to give the Catamounts a 57-53 lead with 10:36 to play. The Catamounts then went on a run to open up a 10-point lead. With the score tied 57-57, Western Carolina went on a 12-2 run, getting five points from McKenna and four from Berghoefer, to take a 69-59 lead. But UNCG rallied to take a lead with less than two minutes to play, thanks in big-part to a six-point possession by Ricky Hickman. Hickman scored and was fouled intentionally with 2:30 to play. He hit one of his two free throws, then knocked down a three-pointer from the right side with 2:04 remaining to tie the game, 74-74. Burrell followed with a jumper in the lane with 1:14 left to give UNCG the lead it would not surrender. Hines put the game away with a pair of free throws with 17 seconds to play.

GREENSBORO, NC -- Ray Bristow hit his first five shots from the field and scored 16 first-half points to jump start UNC Greensboro to a lead that it did not surrender, defeating Elon, 69-60. Elon was led by Colin Wyatt’s game-high 25 points. Wyatt, a transfer from George Mason, nearly doubled his previous career-high which he set on Saturday with 13 points against The Citadel. Wyatt hit 11-of-16 from the field and added seven rebounds. However, the rest of the Elon squad shot just 12-for-41 from the field, 29.3 percent, on the night. Along with Bristow’s 16 points, UNCG also got 14 points from senior Josh Gross in his final home game. Ricky Hickman also had 14 points and Kyle Hines chipped in 12 points and eight rebounds. For the second consecutive game, UNC Greensboro used a hot-shooting first half to jump out to an early lead. Led by Bristow’s outburst, UNCG hit its first five and eight of its first nine from the field. Bristow scored eight point on his first three shots in the midst of a 12-4 UNCG run to open the game. The Spartans (1511, 8-7 SoCon) led by as many as nine in the first half, but the Phoenix 9-4 over the final six minutes to close to within 37-33 at the intermission. Elon had gotten the deficit to three with 18:06 to play when UNCG went on a 12-3 run over the next four minutes. Gross accounted for five of the 12 points in the run to give UNCG its first double-digit lead of the night, 54-42. The Phoenix rallied to score the next eight points and get back to within four with Wyatt and Steve Harvin each scoring four points in the spurt. However, after a Spartan timeout, UNCG rattled off nine in a row. The run, capped off by a three-pointer and a lay-up by Ricky Hickman, gave UNCG a 63-50 lead with 6:44 to play. Elon never got closer than six points after that. The win gave UNCG its fourth 15-win season in the six seasons under Fran McCaffery. Prior to McCaffery’s tenure at UNCG, the Spartans won 15 games just seven times in 32 seasons.

CHATTANOOGA, TN – UNC Greensboro rallied from a 12-point deficit and withstood a last second desperation shot by Georgia Southern and eliminated the Eagles, 73-71, in the quarterfinal round of the Southern Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament at McKenzie Arena. Ricky Hickman led UNCG with 22 points, his ninth straight game scoring in double-figures. Hickman, the SoCon leader in steals, added three more to his conference leading total 75. His 22 points are the most by a Spartan in a Southern Conference Tournament game. Ronnie Burrell added 14 points and eight rebounds, including what wound up being the game-winning basket with 34 seconds to play. Ray Bristow chipped in 13 points and five assists and Kyle Hines, the 2005 SoCon Freshman of the Year, added 10 points and eight rebounds, leaving him 27 points shy of the UNCG freshman scoring record. Georgia Southern won the only regular season meeting between the two teams, 85-79, in Greensboro for one of two home losses the Spartans suffered this season. UNCG trailed 54-46 with 15:44 to play when it turned up the defense. Georgia Southern made just 5-of-25 from the field the rest of the way after shooting better than 50 percent for the first 24 minutes of the game. The Eagles did not record a field goal in the final 3:36. With the score tied at 71-71, Ronnie Burrell hit a leaner in the lane to give UNCG its first lead of the afternoon, 73-71, with 34 seconds to play. After Elton Nesbitt missed a jumper and Donte Fennie’s follow would not go down, Burrell was fouled on the rebound with five seconds left. Burrell missed the front end of the one-and-one, leaving Georgia Southern one last chance. However, Nesbitt initially stumbled out of the rebound crowd and had to settle for a 35-footer, which bounced off the rim as time expired. After fast starts in each of their last three games, UNCG got out of the gate slowly on Thursday. The Eagles, the third-seed from the South Division, opened the game with a 13-4 run in the first four minutes. The Spartans, the second-seed from the North Division, closed the gap a couple of times in the first half. Georgia Southern, however, ran off five straight points to start and 9-2 run and take its first double-digit lead of the day. The spurt gave the Eagles a 34-22 advantage. Shooting 50 percent from the floor in the first half, compared to UNCG’s 31 percent, Georgia Southern took a 38-30 lead into the intermission. The Spartans were able to stay close by going to the free throw line 19 times in the first half, converting 14 of those attempts, and did so despite having Ronnie Burrell, Josh Gross and Kyle Hines all on the bench with two fouls to close out the half. But with 12:33, to go Josh Gross knocked down a three-pointer from the top of the key to pull UNCG within a bucket for the first time since the opening minute of the game. Bristow followed a little more than a minute later with a jumper in the lane to tie the game, 57-57. Georgia Southern regained the lead with five straight points, but UNCG kept within striking distance. With 2:26 left, Burrell stepped to the line and knocked down both ends of a one-and-one to make it 71-69. After a Georgia Southern miss, Kyle Hines hit a runner in the lane to tie at 71-71 to set the stage for Burrell’s game-winner.

CHATTANOOGA, TN – Josh Gross scored a career-high 22 points, his first 20point effort in 110 career games, as UNC Greensboro knocked off Davidson, 73-68, in the semifinal round of the 2005 Kyocera Southern Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament at McKenzie Arena, snapping Davidson’s 16-game winning streak. Along with snapping the third-longest winning streak in the nation currently, the Spartans also snapped a seven-game losing streak against Davidson (21-8). UNCG’s last win against the Wildcats came in the 2001 Southern Conference Semifinals. UNCG went onto win the Southern Conference title that season, advancing to the NCAA Tournament. Davidson, the top seed out of the South Division, won the lone regular season meeting, 78-69, in Greensboro. The loss was one of two for UNCG, the second-seed out of the North Division, at home all season long. Ronnie Burrell added 14 points, including a pair of free throws with 12 seconds to play to put the game away. Kyle Hines, the 2005 Southern Conference Freshman of the Year, added 10 points, six rebounds and three blocks. He now has 101 blocks this season, equaling the Southern Conference single-season record for blocks held by Western Carolina’s Rans Brempong. Both teams seemed to come out tight, struggling on the offensive end at the outset. But when things settled down, UNCG got red-hot and jumped out to a 12-point lead at the midpoint of the first half. Gross’ eight points off the bench in the early going got UNCG out to a 21-9 lead. The Spartans shot 5-for-10 from three-point range for the first half and wound up with a five-point lead at the intermission, 31-26. In addition to knocking down three-pointers, the Spartans shutdown 2005 SoCon Player of the Year Brendan Winters for the first 20 minutes. Winters was held to just two points, those coming on a pair of free throws, in the first half. But Davidson, who will certainly be in contention for an NIT bid, came out of the locker room and scored 10 of the first 12 points of the second half to retake the lead, 36-33, with Winters scoring eight of those. Eventually, the Wildcats stretched the lead to eight, 48-40, as UNCG made just three of its first 10 shots from the field to open the half. The Spartans battled back. Sparked by a Josh Gross three-pointer, UNCG scored the next six points to get back to within two, 48-46, with 10:05 to play. UNCG regained the lead with 7:46 to play when Kyle Hines drove the baseline, scored and was fouled. He converted the conventional three-point play to cap a 9-2 Spartan run and give his team a 55-53 lead. The game became a see-saw affair from there. Over the final eight minutes, the lead changed hands seven times. Winters, who finished with a team-high 19 points, tied the game 66-66 with a reverse lay-up around and outstretched Kyle Hines. But Gross responded with his fourth three-pointer of the game, knocking it down from the right corner to give UNCG a three-point lead with 1:31 to play. That was a lead UNCG would not relinquish. After Logan Kosmalski hit two free throws for Davidson, Ricky Hickman knocked down a jumper with 27 seconds left. Kosmalski missed a three-pointer and Davidson was forced to foul. Burrell knocked down a pair and UNCG was on its way to the finals.

CHATTANOOGA, TN – Josh Gross scored 15 of his 19 points in the final 7:15 to nearly single-handedly pull UNCG to a title, but the Spartans came up short, falling to Chattanooga, 66-62, in the championship game of the Southern Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament at McKenzie Arena. Gross was unstoppable in the closing minutes, reviving UNCG’s hopes after trailing by as many as 14 in the second half. The Mocs (20-10) clung on for dear life, finally putting the game away when Casey Long stole a pass by Ricky Hickman with five seconds to play, eerily similar to a Hickman steal in the closing seconds of UNCG’s win over Chattanooga in Greensboro during the regular season. If either team was nervous about playing in a championship game on ESPN, neither team showed it at the outset. Both teams came flying out of the gates with a monster dunk by Chattanooga’s Casey Long and an impressive block by Kyle Hines, stuffing a Mocs dunk attempt to break the SoCon record with his 102nd blocked shot. The Mocs erased an early 7-6 lead for UNCG by scoring six straight points. A three-pointer by Mindaugus Katelynas with 8:30 to go in the half gave Chattanooga its biggest lead to that point, 20-13. Katelynas was named the Southern Conference Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. He finished with 12 points on Saturday night after an 18-point, 21-rebound effort in the Mocs semifinal win over Appalachian State. Things slowed down from there as neither team scored in nearly three minutes. Chattanooga managed just one field goal in a five-minute span and UNCG converted just two free throws. The Spartans went 6:31 without a field goal. A three-pointer by Alphonso Pugh with 3:30 to play before halftime gave the Mocs their first double-digit lead of the night, 25-15. The Mocs held on from there for a 27-19 lead at the intermission. The Spartans couldn’t seem to put a dent in the margin early in the second half. A three-pointer by Casey Long gave Chattanooga a 45-33 advantage with 13:44 to play. UNCG (18-12), which was trying for its first SoCon title since 2001 when it beat Chattanooga at the buzzer, started to show signs of life with a 6-0 run. After a dunk by Hines, Hickman hit one of two free throws and then converted a conventional three-point play to cap a 6-0 run that cut margin in half with 11:20 to play. Chattanooga responded to score eight straight and held UNCG scoreless for more than four minutes to regain its double-digit lead, 53-39. But then Gross, a senior from Columbia, MD exploded. He scored UNCG’s next 11 to pull the Spartans to within seven, 57-50, with five minutes to play. After the Mocs couldn’t get the ball in-bounds against full court pressure, Ronnie Burrell knocked down a pair of free throws to get the lead to five, 61-56, with 2:10 to play. Chattanooga failed to get a good shot as the shot-clock ran out on its next possession, Gross knocked down another three-pointer to cut it to two, 61-59, with 1:29 left. Neither team scored on its next possession and UNCG was forced to foul with 32 seconds left. Casey Long hit one of two to make a three-point game. Gross was fouled six seconds later while cutting to the ball. He knocked down the first, but back-rimmed the second. UNCG fouled again, and the Mocs made one-of-two again, still leaving the door open. Burrell then scored on a tip-in, but was called for a foul in the process. Katelynas hit both free throws to keep the margin at three, setting the stage for the thrilling closing seconds. After the steal, Long hit one of two to seal the win for the Mocs, which won their eighth-ever SoCon title.

The Southern Conference, which enters its 85th season of intercollegiate competition in 2005, has become known as one of the nation’s leaders in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and defining the league’s role in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference has excelled as the premier Division I-AA football conference since earning that classification in 1981. The Conference currently consists of 11 members in four states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Throughout its history, the Southern Conference has been an innovator in college athletics. The Southern Conference was the first “super conference” with its charter membership including the likes of Alabama, Auburn, and North Carolina. The SoCon, as it has come to be known by headline writers throughout the country, is the league that gave birth to the three-point shot in college basketball and was the college home of such sporting greats as Arnold Palmer, Jerry West and Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. League athletes have been recognized countless times on Verizon/CoSIDA Academic All-America and district teams. A total of 19 Rhodes-Scholarship winners have been selected from the conference. The Southern Conference office is located in the Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, SC. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, the Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the SoCon a first class meeting area as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. MEMBERSHIP HISTORY The Southern Conference was formed on February 25, 1921 at a meeting in Atlanta, Ga. Fourteen institutions from the 30-member Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) reorganized as the Southern Conference. Those charter members included Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. Athletic competition began in the fall of 1921. In 1922, six more schools - Florida, Louisiana State, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane and Vanderbilt - joined the fold. A year later, the University of the South joined the ranks. Virginia Military Institute became a member in 1925 and Duke University came into the fold in 1929. Since then, conference membership has experienced a series of membership changes with 42 institutions having been affiliated with the league. The league has undergone two major transitions during its history.

The first occurred in December 1932 when the Southeastern Conference was formed out of the 23-school Southern Conference. The league’s 13 members west and south of the Appalachian Mountains reorganized to help reduce the extensive travel demands that were present in the league at the time. In 1936, the Southern Conference invited The Citadel, William & Mary, Davidson, Furman, Richmond and Wake Forest to join the membership. The second major shift happened in 1953 when Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest officially withdrew from the league to form the Atlantic Coast Conference. This change was brought about due to the desire of many of those schools to schedule a greater number of regular season basketball games against their local rivals. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that spans four Southeastern states. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. The most recent addition, Elon University, joined the Southern Conference on July 1, 2003. The Phoenix replaced Virginia Military Institute which left the conference on June 30, 2003. East Tennessee State, which joined the SoCon in 1978, left the conference following the conclusion of the 2004-05 academic year. LEADERSHIP Entering the 2005 football campaign, Geoff Cabe serves as the Southern Conference’s interim commissioner. A member of the conference staff since 1988, Cabe has been involved in every facet of the SoCon’s operation. Since 2002, he has been senior associate commissioner where his duties have included serving as the executive producer for all of the SoCon’s championship events and coordinator of all external relationships for the conference. Cabe previously headed up the league’s media relations department (1991-95) and its championships area (1995-99) and has been both an assistant commissioner and associate commissioner. Cabe, now in his second term as the interim commissioner, replaced Danny Morrison who served as commissioner from November 13, 2001 until June 15, 2005. Morrison recently became the director of athletics at Texas Christian University. The Southern Conference named its first commissioner in December 1950. Duke head football coach Wallace Wade made the transition from Blue Devil football coach to athletics administration as the first person at the helm of the conference. Lloyd Jordan replaced Wade as the commissioner in 1960 and served a 14-year term until Ken Germann became the league head in 1974. Germann was the commissioner for 13 years and orchestrated the league’s expansion to include women’s athletics. He was succeeded by Dave Hart in 1987 who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, NC to Asheville, NC. Wright Waters succeeded Hart upon his retirement in 1991. Under Waters’ leadership, the Southern Conference expanded

to 12 members, added three women’s sports and posted record revenue from the basketball Tournament. Waters, who is currently the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference, was followed by Alfred B. White in 1998. White, a veteran member of the NCAA office, introduced the current SoCon logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. He became the president of the Asheville franchise of the National Basketball Development League in 2001. CHAMPIONSHIPS HISTORY The first Southern Conference Championship was the league basketball tournament held in Atlanta in 1922. The North Carolina Tar Heels won the tournament to become the first recognized league champion in any sport. The Southern Conference Tournament remains the oldest of its kind in college basketball. In May of 1923, the league held its first outdoor track and field championship in Montgomery, Ala. Mississippi A&M (now Mississippi State) captured six individual titles on its way to winning the team championship. Two other sports - cross country and tennis - held their first championships during the 1920s. North Carolina won the initial cross country team championship in 1926 in Athens, Ga. Tennis crowned its first singles and doubles champions in New Orleans, La. in 1928. Donald Cram of Vanderbilt was the league’s first singles champion, while Leonard Chamberlin and Maurie Bayon of Tulane won the doubles title. The 1930s saw four more sports - wrestling, indoor track and field, swimming and golf - celebrate their first conference championships. VMI played host to and won the first league wrestling team championship in 1930. Washington & Lee won the first indoor track team championship, which also took place in 1930 and was held at Chapel Hill, N.C. The University of Virginia hosted and won the first league swimming championship in 1933, while Duke captured the first conference golf team title at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. later that same year. Baseball was introduced as a Southern Conference sport in 1947 as Clemson captured the league championship that year. Rifle held its first conference championship in 1956, while soccer was the most recently added men’s sport in 1967. The Southern Conference began sponsoring women’s sports during the 1983-84 season. That year, volleyball, basketball and tennis championships were held in the league. Cross country joined the mix in 1985 and the league began holding indoor and outdoor track championships in 1988. Most recently, the conference instituted golf and softball championships in the spring of 1994 and added soccer in the fall of 1994. The Southern Conference currently declares champions in 10 men’s sports - football, soccer, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, baseball, tennis and golf - and nine women’s sports - soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis, golf and softball. FOOTBALL The Southern Conference has the most prolific history among Division I-AA football conferences. The league boasts the best winning percentage in the history of the I-AA Playoffs (.617). League players have garnered over 200 All-America selections and numerous national player- or coach-of-the-year awards. The conference has had at least one team in the Top 10 of the final I-AA poll for 21 consecutive years with at least two teams finishing in the Top 20 in every season since 1982. The conference has placed multiple representatives in the I-AA Playoffs in 19 of 23 seasons, with 13 Championship Game appearances and five national titles. Georgia Southern won back-to-back national championships including a 27-25 win over Montana in the 2000 title game and a 59-24 win over Youngstown State in 1999. Furman advanced to the championship title game in 2001 before falling to Montana. The SoCon has had at least one team reach the semifinals in six of the last seven years and in 11 of the last 13 seasons.

Seven-foot center Jason Collins scored 20 of his game-high 25-points in the first half to held Stanford to an 89-60 win over UNCG in the First round of the NCAA West Regional on March 15, 2001, in San Diego, CA. UNCG, which finished 19-12, was led by David Schuck’s 16 points, Ronnie Taylor’s 15, Courtney Eldridge’s 13 and Jay Joseph’s 12. Joseph’s dozen were all on three-pointers in the opening period. The Cardinal finished the first half on an 11-2 run to break the game open and lead 48-27 at intermission. Collins his six of nine shots from the floor and hit all seven free-throw attempts in the first 20 minutes of play. Stanford, the top seed in the Regional, improved to 29-2 on the season. “I am impressed with the fight in my team,” said head coach Fran McCaffery, who finished his second year as UNCG coach. “I am proud of them and proud of what we’ve done this season. It’s an honor to be here. We hoped we could have played a little bit better, but we kept playing until the end.” “Greensboro played hard,” said Stanford coach Mike Montgomery. “We got the ball where we wanted it on a lot of occasions and they had to foul us, so we were at the foul line and of course that takes away your continuity. They came out bound and determined to compete with us, and they did.” www.uncgspartans.com

With a record number or more than 16,000 students enrolled for Fall 2005, a dedicated faculty and staff numbering more than 2,000, and exciting new developments underway, UNCG is rapidly taking its place as one of the finest institutions of higher learning in the country. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is classified as a Doctoral/ Research-Intensive University. The University was established in 1891 and became coeducational in 1963. The 200-acre campus is located one mile from the center of Greensboro, a city of 227,793. The Greensboro/WinstonSalem/High Point Metropolitan Statistical Area has a population of approximately 1,089,155, with the population of Guilford County representing approximately 390,000.

University History

The University has a rich history. It was chartered Feb. 18, 1891, as the State Normal and Industrial School (later College), the first state-supported school for the higher education of women in North Carolina. The institution came into being as a direct result of a crusade made by Charles Duncan McIver on behalf of the education of women. Other pioneers in public school education — notably, Charles B. Aycock, Edwin A. Alderman, and James Y. Joyner — came to Dr. McIver’s assistance; but to him, more than to any other individual, the University owes its foundation. In the past century the University has evolved in its mission, as suggested with its sequence of names. It was known first as the State Normal and Industrial School, and after 1896 as the State Normal and Industrial College until 1919. During the period 1919-1931 it was known as the North Carolina College for Women, and became the Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina from 1932 to 1963. It is warmly remembered as “the WC” by its many alumnae of the period. During the years 1932-1963 the University was one of the three branches of the Consolidated University of North Carolina. The other branches included The University of North Carolina (at Chapel Hill) and the North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (at Raleigh). In 1962, the Board of Trustees recommended that the Greensboro campus become coeducational at all levels of instruction in the fall of 1964. Subsequently, by act of the General Assembly in the Spring of 1963, the name of the institution was changed to the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. In December of 1934, during the years of the Consolidated University, the Woman’s College Section of the Alpha of North Carolina Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa was installed. (Alpha Chapter is the one at Chapel Hill.) On February 17, 1956 Epsilon Chapter of North Carolina was installed at this campus. In October of 1971 the North Carolina General Assembly adopted legislation which combined all 16 of the state-supported institutions of higher education into a single University of North Carolina. The UNC system is governed by a board of governors and administered by a president. Each constituent institution has a separate board of trustees and is administered by a chancellor. The crusader for founding the institution, Charles Duncan McIver, served the institution as its first chief executive officer with the title of President. By act of the Board of Trustees in 1945, the title was changed to Chancellor. Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan became UNCG’s first woman chancellor in January 1995, succeeding Dr. Debra W. Stewart, Dean of the Graduate School at North Carolina State University who was named Interim Chancellor in the summer of 1994. During its first seven decades, the institution’s mission was to prepare women, primarily undergraduates, for the most effective living of that day. Today that goal — effective living — remains the same, but its scope has been greatly expanded. As UNCG, it now offers men and women 80 • 2005-06 UNCG Men’s Basketball Media Guide

over 150 graduate and undergraduate programs and provides opportunities to apply classroom learning to real life situations through internships and practica. It also offers students the chance to tailor-make their own programs of study based on individual needs and goals. Although contemporary in its educational program, UNCG is also realistic. In its effort to prepare graduates for effective living, it has built into its program the flexibility needed to meet the rapidly changing needs of society. UNCG, therefore, will remain a university in transition, not satisfied with yesterday or today, but always looking toward tomorrow.

Today’s UNCG

Today’s UNCG consists of:

• The College of Arts and Sciences, which is made up of the departments of Anthropology, Art, Biology, Broadcasting and Cinema, Chemistry, Classical Studies, Communication, English, Geography, German and Russian, History, Mathematical Sciences, Philosophy, Physics and Astronomy, Political Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, Romance Languages, Sociology, and Theatre.

In-state tuition and room and board rates for UNCG are just over $9,000 per year, while out-of-state rates are just over $20,000 per year. Campus life is enriched by a “small college” atmosphere and many extracurricular and coeducational activities. There are more than 130 student organizations, an active Student Government, fraternities and sororities, and a Campus Recreation program which offers informal, intramural and club sports, as well as an extensive outdoor adventure program. The 76 buildings on the campus reflect the 110-year history of the University. Also, there are new features, including a new, $26 million music building which opened in August 1999, and renovations to the Elliott University Center, which were recently completed. A new baseball stadium opened in February 1999. UNCG will receive approximately $159 million from the state for construction and renovation, based on voter approval of the Higher Education Bonds last November 7. A $46 million science building is the centerpiece of the new projects. Groundbreaking took place in spring of 2001. The Second Century Campaign for UNCG concluded Dec. 31, 1998, after five years and raised $55.4 million to create 77 new scholarship and fellowship funds, as well as funds for research, programs and acquisitions. In the Fall of 2004, the University announced that its newest campaign, entitled the Students First Campaign. is almost one-quarter of the way to its goal of $78 million. The Students First Campaign will set aside $52 million for scholarships to make UNCG the school of choice for top high school students in the North Carolina and elsewhere. Remaining funds will also be used for endowments to attract top professors, expansion of university facilities and expansion of public services. UNCG hopes to meet its goal by the year 2009. UNCG is a member of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges (NASULGC) and the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AASCU). In athletics, UNCG began NCAA Division I competition in 1991 and is a member of the Southern Conference.

In addition, beginning in 2006, UNCG’s honors program will become the Honors College. Of the record 15,437 students enrolled last year, 70% were female. In the fall of 2004, UNCG enrolled a record 2,158 freshman. The University also enrolled 1,257 transfer students, its most ever. In the fall of 2004, 67% of freshman applicants were accepted and 25% enrolled to make up a class of 2,158. The average SAT score for the freshman class enrolling in 2003 was 1041. Undergraduates have more than 100 areas of study from which to choose a major leading to one of six undergraduate degrees. In addition, there are 59 master’s degrees and 18 doctoral degrees offered. In the spring of 2004, UNCG awarded 1,884 bachelor’s and 729 master’s degrees. Also, 67 doctoral degrees were awarded in English, psychology, education, nutrition, human development and family studies, exercise & sport science, and music. UNCG has long had a reputation for academic excellence and is one of only six higher education institutions in the state with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. Athletes at UNCG are not an exception to the rule. At the end of each of the last two academic years, more than 40% of UNCG student-athletes held a grade-point-average of 3.0 or better. Nearly one-third of UNCG’s 268 student-athletes made the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll (3.0 GPA in a semester) in both semester during the 2004-05 academic year. In October 2004, “Cosmo GIRL”, a magazine geared towards young women, rated UNCG one of the Top 50 institutions in America. For its study, the magazine focused on specific factors important to female students: small class size, prominent female faculty, strong women’s athletic programs, a career center that facilitates internship opportunities, leadership options among clubs and activities and an active alumni network. The finalists were selected from 2,685 colleges and universities. In August 2004, The Princeton Review rated UNCG the second-best bargain in its “The Best 357 Colleges” guide. It marked the sixth-straight UNCG appeared in the guide, and its highest-ever rating. UNCG was also ranked in the Top 50 public universities by Consumer’s Digest, making it the only institution to appear in both rankings. www.uncgspartans.com

In the Fall of 2004, the University unveiled a new look to the Spartan.

The UNCG Plan In spring 1998, the University community adopted The UNCG Plan, a comprehensive document developed by the University Planning Council that articulates the vision of the University and identifies five key strategic directions which will shape its future: • UNCG will provide exemplary learning environments. • UNCG will expand its research and infuse the excitement of scholarship into its teaching and learning. • UNCG will build a strong sense of community as a student-centered university. • UNCG will expand its outreach in the Piedmont Triad, the state of North Carolina, and beyond. • UNCG will increase its enrollment by actively recruiting and retaining students with the academic preparedness and potential to succeed in a rigorous academic environment.

The Rock Not all colleges and universities can boast a message board with a circumference of 25’ and a width that exceeds 10’. UNCG houses a campus marker that is a visual representation of University history, tradition, and legacy. Known simply as “The Rock” — not to be confused with the nationally recognized wrestler/actor — the boulder-sized message board was brought to UNCG’s campus in 1973 by members of Alpha Phi Omega. Initially located where the fountain is today, it currently rests between the Dining Hall and Jackson Library, where it has resided since 1987. Rather than force students and the community to solely rely upon cluttered bulletin boards, The Rock is an alternate campus informant. Students also know the unwritten rule that the painted messages on The Rock can be removed after 24 hours. Thus, within a week’s time, seven messages could be posted on The Rock. This also speaks to the many activities and events that the University supports. Easy access and its central location are other reasons The Rock is well known on campus. Plus, The Rock’s changing colors and special messages help attract the attention of students and visitors to the University. Those who encounter The Rock for the first time are undoubtedly taken aback by its grandiose appearance and are forced to wonder about its significance. The Rock, with its large exterior and eye-catching graphics, is an important part of UNCG’s history and legacy and is a solid representation of the University’s unyielding belief in and dedication to tradition and uniqueness.

UNCG Chancellor Dr. Patricia Sullivan Dr. Patricia A. Sullivan, who has served as UNCG’s Chancellor since January 1, 1995, is the institution’s ninth chief executive and the first woman to serve in the position. Her leadership has sustained UNCG’s record of excellence and prepared a solid foundation for the future. UNCG was founded as State Normal and Industrial School, a college for women in 1891. The institution became coeducational in 1963. Today, UNCG offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate programs. Sullivan led the University through a strategic planning process that produced the UNCG Plan. Created for five-year increments, the Plan provides a framework for enhancing UNCG’s position as a diverse, student-centered research university, linking the Triad and North Carolina to the world through learning, discovery, and service. Under Dr. Sullivan’s leadership, enrollment at UNCG exceeded 15,000 in fall 2005, while academic standards for admission have increased. The campus continues to lead the UNC system in minority enrollment, underscoring UNCG’s commitment to diversity. New undergraduate programs for freshman include Communication Across the Curriculum and the living-learning communities. Distinctive graduate programs include genetic counseling and management information systems, along with new Ph.D. programs in the areas of nursing, public health, economics, geography, history, information technology and special education. Funding to support research and community projects has continued to grow, along with giving by the University’s friends and supporters. UNCG’s new Students First Campaign is under way, with a goal of raising $78.2 million through 2009. The earlier Second Century Campaign for UNCG, which ended in December 1998, raised $55.4 million, far exceeding the original goal of $42.8 million.

As UNCG’s most ardent advocate, Dr. Sullivan has made a public case for more state appropriations, which have brought additional funding for facilities. These efforts have resulted in a number of capital improvements at UNCG. Currently under construction are the Studio Art Center and a Hall for Humanities and Research Administration, both funded by the North Carolina Higher Education Bonds, and a new 400-bed residence hall - all expected to be completed for use in the 2006-07 year. Structures already completed include a $46 million Science Building, a $26 million School of Music building, a $5 million baseball stadium and student recreation area, and a major renovation for the Elliott University Center, UNCG’s student union. A native of Staten Island, NY, Dr. Sullivan is a graduate of St. John’s University, and earned her master’s and Ph.D. degrees in biology from New York University. She came to UNCG from Texas Woman’s University, where she was vice president for academic affairs for seven years. She also was interim president there for a year. From 1981-87, she was dean of the college at Salem College in Winston-Salem. She is married to Dr. Charles Sullivan, an electrical and computer software engineer. Dr. Sullivan received the honorary Doctor of Pedagogy degree from St. John’s University in 1999. Her other awards and honors include: selection as one of 10 recipients of the 2003 Women in Business Awards and as one of “10 People to Watch in 2004,” annual honors by The Business Journal; and being named the 2003 inductee for the Business Leaders Hall of Fame of the Central North Carolina Junior Achievement chapter. Her academic honors include memberships in Beta Beta Beta biology honor society, Sigma Xi, and Phi Kappa Phi. She also was an NYU Honors Scholar. 2005-06 UNCG Men’s Basketball Media Guide • 83


Director of Athletics Nelson Bobb Now in his 23rd year as Director of Intercollegiate Athletics at UNCG, Nelson E. Bobb has developed a nationally recognized program that has continually succeeded in competition as well as in the classroom. Bobb, the first full-time athletic director at the University, is the primary architect of a program that now features 16 NCAA Division I teams, eight for men and eight for women. When he arrived in July 1983, there were eight Division III teams. The University authorized the shift to Division I in February 1987 and he guided the program through the unprecedented change in competitive status in only five years. UNCG is one of only a dozen institutions to ever compete in all three divisions. However, no other institution has made the complete shift of all teams from Division III to Division I in that time frame. In addition, with the reconstruction of UNCG’s softball venue this past year, he has overseen a complete overhaul of every UNCG athletic facility. During his tenure, he has watched over the construction or renovation of all of the Spartans’ athletic venues, beginning with serving on the committee that built Fleming Gymnasium and the HHP Building in 1989, moving onto the transformation of Campus Field into what is today UNCG Soccer Stadium in 1991, the construction of the UNCG Baseball Stadium in 1999, the renovation and lighting of the UNCG Tennis Courts in 1999, and current projects that include the transformation of UNCG’s softball facility to become a top-of-the-line stadium venue this coming fall and the reconfiguration of seating in Fleming Gym, which began this past summer. Under Bobb’s guidance, Spartan student-athletes have consistently graduated at a rate equal to or higher than the general student population at UNCG. Each of the last two academic years, more than 40 percent of UNCG’s student-athletes earned Dean’s List. In addition, during Bobb’s 22-year tenure, UNCG student-athletes have graduated at a higher rate than the University graduation rate every year. Other recent program accomplishments include completing the NCAA certification process for Division I institutions twice and successfully transitioning the department’s teams into Southern Conference membership. Under Bobb’s leadership, UNCG hosted the final two rounds of the 1997 and 1998 NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship, and was home to Olympic athletes from several countries for training prior to the Olympic Games in Atlanta in 1996. During his tenure, UNCG teams have won 33 conference tournament titles, 24 as an NCAA Division I member. They have also won 62 conference regular season titles, 36 of those since moving to NCAA Division I. UNCG earned the Commissioner’s Cup for overall excellence in the Big South for three consecutive years. While Bobb was athletic director in the 1980’s, the men’s soccer team won four Division III national championships and the women’s basketball team made five consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances with a third-place finish in 1988. During his tenure at UNCG, Bobb has also served in various NCAA

appointments, including serving on one of the first NCAA Certification teams. Most recently, Bobb served on the Division I Men’s Soccer National Committee and had a two-year term as the chair of the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Soccer Rules Committee. UNCG student-athletes have received numerous awards. In 1984, he established the Chancellor’s Scholar-Athlete Award to honor the studentathlete(s) posting the highest grade-point average annually. Bobb, a native of Gahanna, OH, oversees a staff of more than 50 full and part-time employees with administrative divisions of administration and business, student welfare, facilities and operations and integrated public affairs within the department. Before coming to UNCG, Bobb served as an assistant athletic director at Cornell University for five years. He also served as an assistant football coach at Cornell for nine seasons. A 1970 graduate of Kent State (OH) with a bachelor’s degree in education, Bobb also holds a master’s degree in secondary education from Kent. As an undergraduate, he was a three-year letterwinner on the football team as an offensive guard and earned All-Academic recognition from the Mid-American Conference as a junior. He was an all-conference choice his senior year.

The overnight success of the UNCG athletics program has been some 60 years in the making. Spartan teams are big achievers in their 15th year in Division I competition. The success story however, began while UNCG was still the Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina and intercollegiate competition for women was still in its infancy.

1940s

Nancy Porter may have been the first student-athlete in the modern sense of the word at UNCG. The Ohio native competed in national women’s golf tournaments as early as 1948.

1950s

Women’s College hosted the 10th national golf tournament in 1954 at the Starmount Country Club. The College fielded regionally competitive teams that had their beginnings in club sports, play days and other recreational events.

1960s

UNCG launched women’s basketball in 1963 under coach Ellen Griffin. Other early teams were tennis, golf and field hockey. LPGA Hall of Famer Carol Mann was a student at UNCG. She left school early to turn professional. The University became co-educational in 1963. Men’s athletics were added in 1967-68 and the intercollegiate program for men and women received formal recognition from the University. During the fall of 1967, the nickname Spartans was adopted, giving the athletic teams a “fierce mascot, while still preserving the heritage of the WC’s Minerva mark.” Men’s teams joined the Dixie Conference in 1968. Bowling was one of the early men’s teams.

1970s

The women’s basketball team finished fourth in the National Collegiate Tournament in 1971. The team was one of the first to compete with the five-player rule. The women’s golf team won the University’s first team national championship in 1973, coached by Nancy Porter and featuring future pro Donna Horton White. UNCG was a leader in forming the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW).

1980s

The men’s basketball team, coached by Larry Hargett, won the Dixie Conference Championship and competed in the NCAA Division III Tournament in 1980. Ryan Fox won the 1981 individual national title in Division III men’s golf. In the spring of 1981, the University streamlined its program from 12 to eight teams, all competing at the NCAA Division III level. The 1981-82 academic year was the first in which the NCAA sponsored women’s championships. The men’s soccer team was ranked in the national Top-20 for the first time in September of 1981. It did not leave the poll for another 10 years. Coached by Lynne Agee, in her first season, the women’s basketball team finished runner-up in the inaugural Division III championship in 1982. It was the first of seven straight NCAA trips for the team. With Mike Berticelli at the helm, UNCG captured its first men’s national championship in soccer in 1982 and then repeated in 1983. The women’s tennis team, under Agee’s direction, was the national runner-up in 1983. Nelson E. Bobb was hired as the first full-time athletic director in 1983. The women’s volleyball team posted a 34-3 record and reached the NCAA quarterfinals in 1984.

On January 31, 2004, UNCG defeated UNC Chapel Hill for the first time in the sport of Wrestling. After the match ended in a 20-20 tie, UNCG won the match on a tie-breaker, marking the first time the Spartans had defeated the Tar Heels in seven tries. It was UNCG’s first win over an ACC school in five years. Kevin Artis’ 24-9 win in the final bout of the match tied the overall score and provided the only technical fall of the match, giving UNCG the edge in the tie-breaker.

On February 23, 2004, Jay Joseph became UNCG’s all-time leading scorer, eclipsing the mark held by his former teammate James Maye set one year earlier. Joseph finished his career with 1,646 points. He also finished first all-time at UNCG in games played, field goals made and field goal attempts. In March 2004, Darren Burns was named the SoCon Freshman Wrestler of the Year, UNCG’s first wrestling Freshman of the Year since joining the SoCon.

2004-05 Season

On September 25, 2004, as part of the fifth induction class into the UNCG Athletics Hall of Fame, Lynne Agee became the first active head coach to be enshrined in the UNCG Hall. Agee was inducted along with the 1982 men’s soccer team, the 1973 women’s golf team and deceased administrator David Knight.

minutes into the contest was the lone tally as UNCG defeated rival-UNC Chapel Hill, 1-0, in front of a crowd of 2,608 at the UNCG Soccer Stadium. The crowd was the largest at UNCG Soccer Stadium since 1999. The win gave UNCG its fourth win of the season over an ACC-member squad. On October 17, 2004, UNCG received its first No. 1 national ranking since moving to Division I. The men’s soccer team received its first Division I top ranking and became a consensus No. 1 a day later when all four major soccer polls – College Soccer News, Soccer America, Soccer Times and the NSCAA Coaches’ Poll – all listed the Spartans atop the national rankings. UNCG remained a consensus No. 1 for two more weeks and a top-ranked team for a fourth week before seeing its 18-match unbeaten streak snapped. The Spartans would evevntually earn the SoCon’s first-ever at-large bid to the NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament, garnering a No. 8 seed. UNCG advanced to the third round of the tournament, before suffering a heartbreaking 1-0 overtime loss to UC Santa Barbara, the eventual national runner-up. On October 31, 2004, UNCG wrapped up its fourth Southern Conference women’s soccer regular season crown in an eight-year span with a convincing 7-0 win over The Citadel in Charleston. Rakel Logadottir would finish the season as UNCG’s all-time leader in career assists. On November 3, 2004, UNCG’s Amy Carnell and Karla Davis swept the 2004 SoCon Women’s Soccer Player and Freshman of the Year honors. A week later, Randi Patterson and Matt Smith were named the 2004 SoCon Men’s Soccer Player and Freshman of the Year, respectively. It marked the first time one school had swept all four awards. Patterson went on to earn several All-American honors.

James Goodman

In December 2004, men’s soccer coach Michael Parker was named the NSCAA South Region Coach of the Year. Parker had earlier been named the Southern Conference Coach of the Year. Freshmen Kyle Hines and Kristen Boone swept the SoCon’s Men’s and Women’s Basketball Freshman of fthe Year honors in February. Hines set school and SoCon records for blocks in a season with 106, while Boone recorded 121 steals to set a new school record. Her total was the fourth-highest single-season total recorded by a freshman in NCAA history. Joe Kemmerer, Daren Burns and Joe Lowe all qualified for the NCAA Wrestling Championships in March. Burns had the best showing of the three, advancing to the quarterfinals of the 197-lb. class. He wound up in the fourth round of the wrestlebacks and finished the season with a 30-6 mark. Two months later, Burns was the surprise of the Pan American Wrestling Championships, finishing third for Team USA at the international competition held in Guatemala City, Guatemala. In May, Charles Jones became the first Spartan to qualify for the NCAA Track and Field Championships. After winning the SoCon Championship in the triple jump to qualify for NCAA Regional competition, Jones outlasted a two-hour thunderstorm delay and recorded a jump of 15.35 meters to break a tie for fifth-place and earn automatic qualification into the National Championship meet in Sacramento. Earlier in the meet, Jones had leaped a school-record 15.50 meters. Jones eventually finished the national championship meet in 23rd place. In June, Chris Mason was drafted in the second round of the Major League Baseball Draft, being selected by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.

At the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, it is the athletic department’s goal to see that UNCG student-athletes graduate with a degree in their chosen field. The demands of integrating athletic competition, academic success and personal growth are challenging. The Academic Enhancement Program (AEP) bridges the gap between education, athletics and other university programs. The primary goal of the AEP is to help studentathletes make satisfactory progress toward graduation while providing the education and services they need to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle amid the demands of an NCAA Division I institution. AEP focuses on the whole individual – academic, athletic, and emotional – in the years during and after college. AEP firmly believes that there is a direct relationship between quality of effort (both academic and athletic) and performance. AEP considers the results achieved in the classroom to be a direct reflection on UNCG’s athletic program. Through AEP, students explore university programs, options and opportunities, although UNCG studentathletes are expected to take responsibility for their own actions and decisions. They are expected to represent themselves, their team, ICA and UNCG in a manner that consistently promotes honesty, fairness, trust, respect and responsibility. Services provided by the AEP staff include: • Facilitate positive freshman experience through participation in SOAR (Spartan Orientation, Advising and Registration) & UNS (University Studies - required of all freshmen student-athletes); • Provide academic support helping student-athletes utilize campus support systems; • Monitor academic progress of student-athletes through 5 & 10 week reports; • Provide a monitored structured study area where student-athletes can work; • Facilitate student-athlete’s exploration of academic interests, majors, & career options to allow him/her to graduate with a meaningful degree; • Work with student-athletes to help them understand degree audit sheets, degree evaluations and the impact those have on working toward graduation. Student-Athlete responsibilities include: • Complete Virtual Advising before SOAR; • Be familiar with different programs, majors and options available; • Choose a major that blends student’s own interests and strengths;

“The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics (ICA) is actively engaged in the University community and is committed to the development of a competitive Division I program that is nationally recognized as a leader in the welfare of our student-athletes and professional staff. Mirroring the University, ICA is a community of students and professionals of diverse backgrounds embracing an informed appreciation of different views and cultures, as well as their own. Their quality of experiences will encompass the social, aesthetic and ethical development of all individuals represented in the program regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, veteran status, political orientation or sexual orientation. “A founding guideline of Division I athletics at UNCG states that the student-athlete is first and foremost a student. ICA makes every effort to provide an environment for learning where the student-athlete’s responsibilities are integral to their educational success inside and outside the formal classroom. The University provides numerous academic support programs aimed at assisting a student’s academic growth. ICA seeks to further assist student-athletes by enhancing current academic programs and providing educational initiatives supplemental to those offered by the University. These initiatives are designed to stimulate intellectual, social, cultural, gender and personal development of the studentathlete. The goals of these programs are to promote the graduation of student-athletes at a rate equal to or greater than the overall undergraduate student population. A special emphasis is placed on maintaining comparable graduation rates for student-athletes in every demographic group.”

- Excerpt from UNCG’s ICA Department Philosophy • Explore academic options with academic advisor in his/her major; • Monitor their own academic progress with instructors and advisors; • Participate in structured study during the fall semester of their freshman year.

Academic Excellence AEP works to support the academic progress of student-athletes toward intellectual development and graduation. At UNCG, the Student Academic Services, Learning Assistance Center, Counseling and Testing Center, Speaking Center and Writing Center help AEP provide information in the following areas: • Structured study; • Academic agendas; • Goal setting; • Time management; • Study skills; • Tutoring; • Study groups; • Progress reports (for all student-athletes in all courses twice per semester);

Academic Development AEP encourages student-athletes to develop and pursue career goals and life goals. The School of Education’s Counseling and Educational Development Department, Business and Career Services’ representatives provide student-athletes with a variety of experiences, including: • CED 210: Career and Life Planning; • Field experiences; • Career Day. AEP’s staff includes a director, an assistant academic coordinator, graduate interns, daytime and Sunday night structured study monitors and tutors. The staff includes professionals who provide various services such as academic advising, career counseling, individual and small group tutoring, classroom instruction and other 94 • 2005-06 UNCG Men’s Basketball Media Guide

support services.

Academic Advising Freshmen and sophomores without a declared major will be advised through the College of Arts and Sciences. All other student-athletes follow the normal procedures for university academic advising concerning schedules, possible class choices, degree requirements, etc. AEP staff monitor academic progress, advise and counsel student-athletes and serve as a liaison between ICA and the academic community. Progress letters are sent to faculty requesting input such as grades, attendance, etc. Students are assigned tutors in any problem areas.

Office of Academic Compliance UNCG’s newest addition to its academic services, the Academic Compliance Office is charged with monitoring and evaluating issues related to the continuing eligibility of the student-athletes and completing NCAA Academic Progress Rate (APR) reporting forms regarding continuing eligibility and retention. Academic Compliance also works closely with student-athletes who are identified as needing extra attention while adjusting academically and socially. The goal of the Academic Compliance Office is to serve as a bridge for UNCG’s student-athletes and assist in connecting them with the appropriate campus-based support service dependent upon their specific needs. The main goal of this office is to assist student-athletes in their pursuit of a degree and ensure compliance with University and NCAA guidelines. The Academic Compliance office relies on a combination of professionals and offices across campus to be successful in delivering quality guidance and assistance to our student-athletes in a timely fashion. The staff provides a wide array of services and programs that are geared towards developing the fundamental skills needed to be successful in college both as a student and an athlete. As a whole, the University community must strive to reach the ultimate goal of “being recognized in Division I as a national leader in the welfare of the student-athlete.” www.uncgspartans.com
