UNCG... there is no hyphen The UNC Greensboro SID office asks members of the media to not put a hyphen in our school’s name. While at one time all of the schools in the UNC system included a hyphen in their names (i.e. UNC-Wilmington, UNC-Asheville), that standard changed several years ago to not include a hyphen (i.e. UNC Greensboro, UNC Wilmington, UNC Asheville). On first reference, we prefer that you use UNC Greensboro. On second reference, however, UNCG is perfectly acceptable (not UNC-G as was used in the old days). Thanks for your cooperation.

UNCG’s Summer Tour: The UNCG men’s and women’s basketball teams took time out this past May for a tour of Italy. It was the Spartans’ first overseas excursion since a trip in the summer of 2001 to visit Norway and Sweden for a five-game tour.

On the tour, both the men’s and women’s teams went a perfect 3-0. Their tour began in the village of Lake Como in the northern part of the country near the Italian-Swiss border. While in Lake Como, the Spartans defeated Ignus, an Italian second division squad, 88-69. Kyle Hines led with 28 points, while Mikko Koivisto chipped in with 13 points.

The tour moved on to Venice and, after a day of sightseeing, on to the Sovereign country of San Marino. The Spartans took on KK Roving in Flori, defeating the Croatians, 107-75, behind Hines’ 27 points and 17 points by Kevin Oleksiak. After touring San Marino the next day, the team moved on to Florence for a day of shopping and sightseeing. From there, the team travelled to Rome to tour the Colosseum during the day and face College Italia that night. Ben Stywall led four players in double figures as the Spartans completed their tour a perfect 3-0 with an 84-65 win. Pete Brown also chipped in with 11 points. The team spent their final full day in Rome, taking a tour of the Vatican and hearing the Pope. The teams flew home the following day, concluding their 10-day tour.

Season Preview

Entering the 2007-08 season, the pre-season prognosticators can’t seem to agree on one particular involving UNCG. Are the Spartans the hunter or the hunted? With All-American candidate and reigning Southern Conference Player of the Year Kyle Hines returning as the centerpiece to head coach Mike Dement’s Spartans, many have picked the Spartans to finish on top of the Southern Conference’s North Division. However, the same experts wonder if they have what it takes to make the NCAA Tournament. The Spartans made great strides in 2006-07. A season earlier, UNCG struggled through a 12-19 season when Hines had the numbers to earn SoCon Player of the Year honors as just a sophomore -- but no one would vote for a player who was on the team seeded No. 10 out of 11 in the conference tournament. The Spartans struggled away from Fleming Gym in 200506, going just 1-13 away from home. Beginning the 2006-07 season in the midst of what would wind up as a 14-game road losing skid, the Spartans learned to win in unfriendly territory. The Spartans went 6-9 on the road last year, including a winning mark in Southern Conference play (5-4). Two of those losses came in overtime at Marshall and North Carolina State -- games that the Spartans were one play away from winning. So it would seem that the 2007-08 Spartans are ready to embark on the next step -- becoming a consistent winner at home and on the road and take a crack at the Big Dance when March rolls around. Hines has already reached many milestones and has more that he can achieve this year. Already the school’s career blocks leader -- he did that as just a sophomore -- Hines will likely become the school’s career scoring leader before the end of November. Then, two more big career milestones will be within his sites -- the school’s career rebounding mark and, possibly, a shot at 2,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds.

The All-America candidate from Sicklerville, NJ average 20.9 points and 9.0 rebounds last season -one of five players in the nation to average 20 and 9 last year. He enters the season with the longest streak in the nation of double-digit scoring games with 50 in a row. His 31 career double-doubles are the most among active players and he is in the Top 5 among active players in career points, rebounds and blocks as the season begins. But one the of Spartans stumbling blocks has been the lack of consistent outside shooting to take the pressure off Hines when he is constantly double and triple teamed. (Last year, even Duke double-teamed the 6-6 Hines with a pair of 7-footers.) Some of that inconsistency seemed to clear last season with the emergence of Mikko Koivisto and Kendall Toney. The duo each knocked down 50 threepointers last year. Toney, on easily the biggest stage of his career to date, knocked down eight of them in a January overtime loss at North Carolina State on ESPNU. He finished the season at a conference best 43.5 percent from behind the arc. Koivisto shot the trey at a 37.7 percent clip. The freshman pair grew up quickly last year and will be counted on this year to continue to spread the defense and open things up in the low post. Senior guard Kevin Oleksiak will also be looked to for perimeter support. Last season, the Abington, PA native shot just 28 percent from three-point range. However, he has knocked down more than his share of treys over the last three years. He enters this season 10th all-time at UNCG in career three-point field goals with 98. As a sophomore, he set a school record with nine in a game. Senior Dwayne Johnson returns for his third season as the Spartans’ starting point guard. The 5-9 native of the Queens, NY enters his final college campaign with 299 career assists, sixth all-time at UNCG. He will try to become just the third player in school history to record 100 assists in three consecutive seasons. Dur-

Mikko Koivisto and Kendall Toney each knocked down more than 50 three-pointers in their rookie seasons last year. Toney led the league in three-point field goal percentage and made eight in game at NC State last January.

ing his career, he already has 22 games in which he’s recorded five or more assists. He can also take care of the basketball, witness the fact that he was third in the conference in assist-to-turnover ratio last season. But Johnson has become more than just a distributor over the last two seasons. Last year, he knocked down 21-of-53 three-pointers, some of them at crucial points of a game. Freshmen Daniel Oliver and Landon Clement will also see some time at either guard slot. Both averaged better than 20 points per contest in the senior seasons in high school, Oliver at Florida’s Orlando Christian Prep and Clement at Sanderson HS in Raleigh, NC. Sophomore forward Ben Stywall returns in the frontcourt. Stywall may have been the greatest benefactor of the opposition attention Hines got last season. The 6-5 Charlotte, NC native averaged 5.8 points and 6.5 rebounds per game last season. While Hines field goal percentage went down last year because of the double and triple teams, Stywall’s offensive rebounding numbers climbed near the top of the conference. He enjoyed his best game of the year against Delaware when he had 23 points and 15 rebounds in a win over the Fightin’ Blue Hens. Dement hopes to be able to use Stywall more at his natural position of small forward if sophomore Pete Brown and some of the newcomers progress enough. Brown appeared in all 30 games last year as a reserve, spelling both Hines and Stywall. He played doubledigit minutes in seven of those contests and will be counted on to play more this season. Freshmen DeAngelo Jackson, Sam Mason and Darrius Sellers, as well as junior college transfer Michael Mitchell, will compete for time in Dement’s rotation. Sellers, a 6-7 Smyrna, GA native, arrives at UNCG after a two-year stint at Charis Prep [NC] where he averaged 13 points and 12 rebounds last season. Jackson is a 6-8 athletic forward who moved to North Carolina from Washington state last year. In his only season at Harnett Central Prep, he averaged 12 points and nine rebounds a contest to earn a spot in the North Carolina East-West All-Star game. Mitchell came to UNCG this past summer from Louisburg Junior College as a walk-on. A native of near-by Burlington, NC, the 6-7 Mitchell averaged 14 points and 7.7 rebounds per game last year. Mason, a Broughton HS product from Raleigh, NC, is a big body at 6-10. He averaged 14 points per contest as a senior, topping the 20-point mark six times last year. The Spartans also welcome back walk-on Mike Hardiman. Hardiman joined the team in late November last season as a practice player after trying out for the team in early fall. The “neat” part of Hardiman’s story is that he began the basketball season as a part of “The Ocho” a group of eight students who sat in the front row of UNCG athletic events with their chests painted. The native of Charlotte, NC went on to appear in three games last year with the Spartans, while the remaining members of “The Ocho” painted a manican with his uniform number on it to take his seat. The Spartans will open the season on November 9 with a trip to Georgia Tech. The home portion of the campaign begins November 24 when UNCG hosts USC Upstate in the 200th men’s basketball game played at Fleming Gym. www.uncgspartans.com


The Spartan Coaching Staff

Spartan Coaching Staff

Mike Dement enters the third season in his second tenure as head coach at UNCG, Mike Dement returned to UNCG on April 9, 2005 for his second stint as UNCG’s men’s basketball coach. Dement, 53, is the ninth head coach in school history – and the first to serve two different tenures as head coach of the program. 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 schoolrecord 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. At his introductory press conference on April 9, 2005, UNCG Director of Athletics Nelson Bobb, who was the Director of Athletics at UNCG during Dement’s first tenure, as well, said, “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,” said Bobb. “He has a track record of coaching competitive teams who scrap and battle until the end of the game.” The 2007-08 season is Dement’s 21st as a head coach. In 20 previous seasons, Dement has compiled a mark of 288-276, leading him just 12 wins shy of the magical milestone of 300. 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. In his first season back at UNCG, Dement led a young Spartan squad to a 12-19 mark. With just one senior on the 2005-06 roster, and that being a player who hadn’t seen game action in two years, Dement found that his task was going to be somewhat of a building mission, although not of the same magnitude that had faced 15 years earlier when UNCG was moving to Division I. Still, with two players earning all-conference status in Ricky Hickman and Kyle Hines, and another earning SoCon All-Freshman honors, Dement had shown that the tools for a winner were there. Early in the season, UNCG won on the road at East Carolina and at home against a Gardner-Webb team that had gone right down to the buzzer with North Carolina two weeks earlier. But like many young squads do, the Spartans had their struggles down the stretch and a 7-3 start -- one of the best in school history -- was forgotten with February’s fumbles. Yet still, 10th-seeded UNCG knocked off seventh-seeded Western Carolina in the opening round of the conference tournament and then had three shots at the end of regulation to beat second-seeded Elon, only to fall in overtime in the SoCon quarterfinals. In 2006-07, Dement guided the Spartans to a 16-14 mark, including a second place finish in the Southern Conference’s Northern Division. Hines, only a junior, earned Southern Conference Player of the Year and Associated Press All-America  • 2007-08 UNCG Men’s Basketball Media Guide

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. 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 in the championship game. 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. Dement resides in Greensboro. He is married to Rhonda Rompola, the head women’s basketball coach at SMU. Dement has a son Michael, 24, who played for him while he was coach at SMU, and a daughter Emily, 16.

Honorable Mention status - a pair of firsts in the history of the UNCG program. The Spartans were considered by many to be the most dangerous team in the SoCon Tournament, but were upended in the final seconds by Furman in the quarterfinal round. 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 its 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 20win season in school history, earning Dement District Coach of the Year honors from the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC). When his team

“It is hard to slow Hines down. Even with the double team, he’s impossible to shut down. You can’t really stop him, only hope to contain him.” - Furman coach Jeff Jackson

“Less than 100 players in college basketball history have achieved 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds and I think he really has a shot at it. He got double-teamed by Duke and still scored 17 points. I know I am partial to a Jersey guy, but I can’t understand how he’s been under the radar. He’s a double-double warrior and draws a lot of traffic - allowing his teammates to ‘take the bypass’. I expect his senior year to be over the top. I truly enjoy watching him play.” - Television analyst and former head coach Bucky Waters

G3: Duke 75, UNCG 48

STATE COLLEGE, PA – UNCG went scoreless for 4:30 minutes in the second half and Penn State took advantage with a 9-0 run to take a lead it would not surrender on its way to a 69-56 win at the Bryce Jordan Center. Penn State was led by Jamelle Cornley’s 23 points and 11 rebounds. Ben Luver added 13 points for the Nittany Lions (2-0) UNCG (0-2) got 20 points from junior forward Kyle Hines, his 23rd consecutive game in double figures. It was also his 20th career 20-point game as he shot 10-for-14 from the floor. Bart Tooms chipped in with 12 points, including 5-for-6 shooting from the field. The Spartans were hurt by Penn State’s 14 offensive rebounds, 11 in the second half, which allowed Penn State to stretch its lead late. The Nittany Lions also converted UNCG’s 14 turnovers into 23 points. UNCG had just eight points off of Penn State miscues. “I thought we played well for about 30 minutes,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement. “Then they went off with a flurry of offensive rebounds, especially Cornley and Kyle got his fourth foul – that certainly didn’t help us. That was when they started getting three and four shots.” The teams played a fairly even first half, both shooting 12-of-27 from the floor. Penn State got out to a quick 9-2 lead in the first four minutes of the game as UNCG missed five of its first six from the field. But UNCG slowly climbed back into it. Senior forward Bart Tooms came off the bench to score 10 points in a 15-5 run as UNCG gained its first lead of the night, 17-14, on a Tooms three-pointer with 9:25 to play in the opening half. Penn State pushed the lead back out to five at one point, but the Spartans pull close once again and trailed by just two, 31-29, at the intermission. The Nittany Lions started quickly in the second half, too, going on a 7-2 run to open the half to force UNCG coach Mike Dement to call a timeout. And it worked as UNCG ran off seven of the next eight points, capped off by a Kevin Oleksiak three-pointer, to make it a 39-38 Penn State lead. The Nittany Lions, however, ran off six straight, including a pair of buckets by D.J. Jackson, to open up their biggest lead of the night, 45-38. UNCG, however, used a five-point swing to get back into it. Kyle Hines scored and got fouled. After he missed the free throw, Ben Stywall made a great play to tap the ball out to Dwayne Johnson. He swung it around to Hickman who knocked down a 25-footer to cut it to three. Then, after Hickman took a charge to give UNCG the ball back again, Mikko Koivisto knocked down a three-pointer to tie the game, 49-49. But Kyle Hines picked up his fourth foul, UNCG went scoreless for 4:30, and Penn State ran off the next nine points to take a 58-49 lead with five minutes to play.

DURHAM, NC – Tenth-ranked Duke had four players in double figures to offset a 17-point night by Kyle Hines as the Blue Devils came away with a 75-48 win over the Spartans at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Spartans (0-3) had pulled within 54-40 midway through the second half after struggling in the first 20 minutes. UNCG shot just 6-for-26 in the first half and trailed 45-20 at the break. “I liked the way our defense played in the second half,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement, a former Duke assistant. “They took us out of our sets in the first half. They are tough on Hines because they are just so big in the middle with the two seven-footers (Josh McRoberts and Brian Zoubek). I guarantee you that is the first time Kyle has seen that in two years and that he won’t have to see that when we get into the conference schedule.” Zoubek finished the game with 17 points in a match-up of big men from South Jersey. Hines hails from Sicklerville, NJ, just 15 miles from Zoubek’s hometown of Haddonfield. The two had played against each other in summer leagues and had worked out together during their high school days. Gerald Henderson added 12 points while DeMarcus Nelson and David McClure chipped in 11 points each. Ricky Hickman, a junior from Winston-Salem, NC, added 12 points for the Spartans. Hines’ 17 points extended his string of double-figure scoring games to 24 straight games, three shy of the school record. He also had eight rebounds and three blocks. Duke (3-0), ranked No. 11 in the AP poll and No. 10 in the ESPN / USA Today Coaches’ Poll, scored the first nine points of the game before UNCG settled down following a timeout. UNCG scored eight of the next 13 before a Duke 14-2 run opened up a 27-10 advantage. UNCG, however, came out of the locker room to the tune of a 13-4 run to open the second half, cutting the Duke lead to 49-33. UNCG held Duke without a field goal for nearly five minutes during that run. A Kevin Oleksiak three-pointer cut it to 54-40 with 10:52 to play. “Give UNCG credit for that,” said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. “They held us without a field goal for five minutes during that stretch.” But Duke would hold UNCG to just eight points the rest of the way on 2-for-10 shooting from the field.

G2: Penn State 69, UNCG 56

HUNTINGTON, WV -- Kyle Hines recorded his 22nd career double-double, set a career-high for points and surpassed the 1,000-point mark for his career, but a UNCG late lead didn’t hold up as Marshall topped the Spartans, 82-80, in overtime. Hines, a junior from Sicklerville, NJ finished the day with 38 points, the most by a Spartan since 1986. He also grabbed 12 rebounds and had three blocks and three steals. After UNCG led by nine, 67-58, with 1:32 to play, Marshall rallied. Travis Aikens drove the lane and converted a three-point play with 19 seconds to play to give Marshall a 68-67 lead. UNCG senior Ricky Hickman was fouled with 7.2 seconds to play, but he made just one of two to tie the game. Marshall called time out with 5.5 seconds left and the ball in front of their bench. However, the Herd settled for a long-range three-pointer that was short and the game went to overtime. Marshall’s Travis Aikens took over in the extra session. He scored 10 of Marshall’s first 12 points of the overtime. The Herd scored the first five points of the overtime to take a quick lead, but UNCG’s Mikko Koivisto converted two free throws to cut it back to three. The lead was still three when Hickman picked off a pass, drove to the basket and was fouled with 2:14 left in overtime. He converted one of two, but Marshall bobbled the ball out of bounds on the rebound. Hickman missed a pair of threepointers, but UNCG came away with the ball after both misfires. The third time, they got it to Hines, who took it to hole to tie the game, 78-78. Aikens was then fouled on the other end and made both free throws to give MU a two-point lead. But then Hines was fouled making a move to the basket with 25 seconds left. Notoriously a bad free throw shooter, Hines sunk both free throws to tie the game, 80-80. Humphrey, however, was fouled as he was shooting on the other end with 5.5 seconds left. He hit both and a desperation three-pointer by Hickman was off target. Hines got off to a fast start. Needing just 14 points entering the day to reach the 1,000-point milestone, he scored 11 points in the first five minutes as UNCG jumped out to a 16-12 lead. He surpassed the 1,000-point mark at 9:34 with a putback, to make him the 14th player in school history to surpass the milestone. He wound up scoring 22 of UNCG’s 43 first-half points to give UNCG a seven-point lead at the intermission, 43-36. Marshall’s Chris Ross drove the lane and converted a conventional threepoint play, however with 4:54 to play to cap a 10-3 spurt and pull the Herd back to within a bucket at 60-58. UNCG tried to get to work on the clock from there and was able to extend the lead for a few minutes. Marshall’s Darryl Merthie knocked down a three-pointer from the right wing with 1:16 to play to cut it 67-61. The Spartans failed to convert their next possession and the Herd’s Ross was fouled on a rebound with 53.3 seconds. He converted the front end of a one-and-one and Merthie grabbed the rebound, but he dribbled the ball off of his foot to give the ball back to UNCG. But Hickman had a couple of mental lapses and Marshall got another life. First, he pushed off on the in-bounds to give it back to Marshall. Then, he fouled Markel Humphrey on a three-point shot. Humphrey converted all three free throws to make it 67-65. Against full court pressure, Hickman tried to hit Ben Stywall with a length of the court pass, but threw it too far and it went out-of-bounds to give Marshall the ball with 39.1 seconds left in regulation.

G4: East Carolina 72, UNCG 64

G5: UNCG 79, Gardner-Webb 67

GREENSBORO, NC - East Carolina closed out the game on a 12-4 run, making eight of nine from the line over the final 2:37, to defeat UNC Greensboro, 72-64, in front of a capacity crowd of 1,831 at Fleming Gym on Saturday night. The Pirates (3-1) snapped UNCG’s 10-game home non-conference winning streak and spoiled UNCG’s home opener. The Spartans (0-4) entered Saturday night having won 13 of the last 15 home openers and eight in a row. It was also the first time since February 18, 2003, that UNCG lost at home when leading at the half. UNCG had won 21 in a row during that span. East Carolina, which avenged a loss in Greenville to the Spartans last December, got 19 points each from Darrell Jenkins and Jeremy Ingram. Courtney Captain chipped in 10 points. UNCG, which jumped out quickly by scoring the first 10 points of the game, had four players in double figures. Kyle Hines and Dwayne Johnson had 13 points each and Ricky Hickman and Mikko Koivisto each had 12. Hines extended his double figure scoring streak to 25 straight games, two shy of a school record, and also grabbed nine rebounds. It was, however, his lowest scoring output of the young season, shooting just 5-for-14 from the field. After UNCG used four different players to score the first 10 points of the contest, East Carolina went on a 12-2 run to tie the score, capped off by Darrell Jenkins jumper at 14:06. Neither team opened up a margin of more than four after that as UNCG took a 34-33 lead to the locker room on Kendall Toney’s off-balance three-pointer just before time expired. The Spartans jumped out quickly to start the second half, as well. UNCG used a 13-5 spurt over the first 5:36 of the second half to gain a 47-38 lead. The lead was still eight, 52-44, at the 10:43 mark when UNCG went cold. The Spartans missed their next 10 shots from the floor over a 5:29 span as East Carolina regained the lead, 56-53, on an alley-oop dunk by freshman Josh Fields. UNCG stopped the bleeding momentarily, tying the game at 60-60 on Dwayne Johnson’s steal and lay-up with 2:37 to play. But East Carolina scored 12 of the final 16 points the rest of the way, with Captain scoring five of those from the free throw line. Over the final 10:43, UNCG was just 3-for-21 from the floor after making 5-of-10 to open the half. The Spartans finished the night shooting just 35 percent from the floor. Their free throw shooting also proved costly as UNCG was just 14-24 from the charity stripe. East Carolina wasn’t much better at the line for most of the night, going 9-for-18 at the line before the final 2:37. But the Pirates made them when it counted down the stretch.

BOILING SPRINGS, NC – Junior forward Kyle Hines overcame a slow start to record a double-double with 27 points and 13 rebounds as UNCG picked up its first win of the season, 79-67, over Gardner-Webb at Porter Arena. The win snapped UNCG’s 14-game road losing streak. The Spartans hadn’t won on the road since December 6 of last year at East Carolina. Freshman Mikko Koivisto chipped in with a season-high 16 points, his third double-digit scoring game this season. He knocked down 3-of-5 from three-point range in 25 minutes of action. Ricky Hickman also added 16 points, including 9-of-10 from the foul line. Dwayne Johnson added five points and a season-high nine assists for the Spartans. Ricky McPhee led Gardner-Webb (0-4) with 17 points. Chris Gash added 16 points for the Bulldogs. Despite a tough shooting first half, the Spartans took a lead to the locker room, 36-33, thanks to Koivisto’s three-pointer just before the buzzer. The Spartans (1-4) shot just 31 percent from the floor in the first half, but committed just five turnovers and knocked down five three-pointers to hold a lead at the break. Gardner-Webb, coming off a 53-point loss to North Carolina on Sunday and playing its home opener, hit 5-of-8 to open the game and take a 13-3 lead in the first 4:24 of the contest. UNCG missed 9-of-11 from the field to open game. However, the Spartans battled back, holding the Bulldogs without a field goal for more than five minutes. A three-pointer by Kendall Toney capped a 12-0 run as UNCG took its first lead of the night, 15-14. Gardner-Webb opened its lead back up to six midway through the first half, but UNCG battled back despite the Bulldogs keying on Hines. Hines missed seven of his first eight from the field, yet the Spartans were deadlocked, 31-31, with 2:30 left before halftime. UNCG opened up a five-point lead midway through the second half, its largest of the night to that point. Ricky Hickman connected for his first field goal with 11:54 to play when he knocked down a three-pointer from the top of the key with the shot clock winding down. Hines then followed with an up-and-under move on UNCG’s next possession to give the Spartans a 51-46 lead with just over 11 minutes to play. Gardner-Webb knocked down back-to-back three-pointers on consecutive possessions to promptly erase that lead, the latter by Ricky McPhee. But the Spartans ran off 12 points in a row, sparked by Hines going over the 20-point mark for the 21st time in his career and recording his 23rd career double-double, to give UNCG a 63-52 lead with just under six minutes to play. The Bulldogs cut it back to five with 4:30 to play on three-pointers by McPhee and Gash, causing UNCG to take a timeout. The Spartans settled down again and slowly stretched the lead back to six before Koivisto knocked down a big three-pointer from the left corner with 45 seconds to play to put the final nail in the coffin. After Hines missed seven of eight to open, he made a more typical 7-of-12 from the floor to close out the game. It was just the second time in his career that he shot below 50 percent in consecutive games after going just 5-for-14 in a loss to East Carolina on Saturday night.

GREENSBORO, NC – Ricky Hickman came out of a shooting slump and recorded his 20th career 20-point game, finishing with a game-high 21 points as UNC Greensboro won its Southern Conference opener, 77-54, over Wofford at Fleming Gym. The Spartans (2-4, 1-0), just about everyone’s pre-season pick to win the SoCon’s North Division, didn’t look like a team that had lost four of its first five non-conference games to open the season,. On the other hand, Wofford didn’t look like a team that had beaten Cincinnati on its home floor six days earlier. The Spartans led by as many as 31, that coming midway through the second half, and held Wofford (4-3, 0-1) below 30 percent shooting from the field for much of the night. The Terriers, who came into the game averaging 10 three-pointers per game, made eight on Monday night. The problem seemed to be inside of the arc, however, where Wofford made just 9-of-33. Overall, Wofford, which was playing its fourth straight road game, shot just 29 percent from the field. The Terriers did play much of the night without Drew Gibson, who aggravated a hamstring injury in the opening minutes of the game. Shane Nichols, who averaged 18 points per game in two previous meetings with the Spartans, scored just five on 1-of-9 shooting from the field on Monday night. The Terriers were led by Tyler Whatley and Eric Marshall with 11 points each. Whatley also had eight rebounds. Kyle Hines added 13 points for UNCG, his 27th consecutive game in double figures to tie a school record set by Hickman last year. Kevin Oleksiak added a season-high 16 points, while freshman Ben Stywall grabbed a game-high 11 boards for UNCG, his second straight game with double-digit rebounds. Hickman looked like he maybe found his shooting stroke over the Thanksgiving break. The senior from Winston-Salem, NC shot just 25 percent from the floor in his first five games this season (16-for-64), including less than 20 percent from three-point range (5-of-26). On Monday night, however, Hickman was 7-of-14 from the field, including 3-of-6 from behind the three-point arc. About the only thing UNCG didn’t do well on Monday was shoot free throws. The Spartans continued their ups-and-downs at the charity stripe, shooting just 17-of-30 at the foul line on Monday night. After Wofford scored five of the first seven points of the game, the Spartans settled in. UNCG tied the game at 8-8 and then gradually opened up a five-point lead by midway through the first half. UNCG did it with defense as Wofford missed six of its next eight shots from the field after opening up the early lead. In turn, UNCG held a 19-14 lead with 10 minutes to play in the half. Wofford shooting woes continued from there, however. The Terriers recorded just five field goals in the first 18 minutes of the contest, going nearly eight minutes between baskets at one point. Meanwhile, UNCG, while giving leading scorer Kyle Hines some rest, ran off 13 straight points to open up a 37-19 lead. It was more of the same early in the second half for UNCG. The lead hit 20 to open the half when Hickman came up with a steal and conventional three-point play off of Wofford’s opening possession. After Dwayne Johnson drew a charge on the defensive end, Kevin Oleksiak knocked down a 21-footer above the top of the key and the Spartans had doubled-up the Terriers, 45-22.

GREENSBORO, NC – Stephen Curry had 23 points and Davidson made 5-of-6 at the line in the final 2:10 to pull away for a 66-63 win over UNC Greensboro in Southern Conference action at Fleming Gym. UNCG’s Kyle Hines had game-highs with 30 points and 15 rebounds. Hines made nine of his first 10 from the floor on his way to 22nd game of 20 or more points in his career. It was his 25th career double-double. He also had five blocks. It was Hines second 30-point game of the season already, having scored 38 in the season-opener at Marshall. He became just the fifth player in school history to score 30 or more points in a game twice during the same season, joining Robert Bryant, Bruce Shaw, Marvin Dawson and Courtney Eldridge. It was the 39th 30-point game in the program’s 40-year history. While Hines was shooting 13-for-16 from the floor for the night, the rest of the Spartans struggled from the perimeter. UNCG was just 2-of-12 from three-point range in the second half, and one of those came when Ricky Hickman knocked down a trey at the buzzer for the final three-point margin. Outside of Hines, the rest of the team was 11-for-38 from the field and all of the 63 points came from UNCG’s five starters. UNCG’s Kevin Oleksiak chipped in with 12 points, 10 of those came in the first half. Davidson also got 19 points from forward Boris Meno, who spent a good portion of the second half on the bench in foul trouble. Davidson took a 61-59 lead on thwo free throws by Thomas Sander with just under two minutes to play. UNCG’s Hines was then fouled on a move to the bucket with 1:34 left, but made just one of two at the line. Curry then drove the lane and hit a reverse lay-up to take a 63-60 lead with 1:02 left. Oleksiak missed a three-pointer on UNCG’s next possession, but the Spartans’ Ben Stywall blocked Curry’s drive down the lane with 20 seconds left. Hines was then fouled as he drove the floor with 14.1 seconds left. Exhausted, he missed both and UNCG was forced to foul. William Archamabult promptly knocked down both from the line to put the game out of reach. UNCG’s defense was swarming at the outset as the Wildcats missed 10 of their first 12 from the floor. The Spartans opened up a 12-4 lead in the process over the game’s first seven minutes. In the first nine minutes of the contest, UNCG held a 14-4 advantage in rebounds, including five by UNCG point guard Dwayne Johnson, the smallest guy on the court at 5-9. Davidson slowly pulled back in it, however, knocking down five three-pointers over the final 13 minutes of the first half and grabbing 10 offensive boards in the half. Curry’s step-back three-pointer from the right corner with 3:55 remaining in the half got the Wildcats within a point, 25-24. After a bucket by Hines – his 12th point of the first half – Thomas Sander knocked down a three-pointer from the left wing to tie at 27-27. Davidson the scored seven of the final 10 points of the first half to take a 34-30 lead into the locker room, despite the fact that it was shooting just 38 percent from the floor in the first half and the Spartans were shooting an even 50 percent. Davidson held the lead, although the margin was no more than five, for the first eight minutes of the second half. After four tries at taking the lead, UNCG finally got it back, 44-43, on a bucket by Hines with 11:17 to play. But Davidson ran off five straight, three on a bomb by Curry, to regain the lead, 48-44. UNCG got the lead back again with 4:35 to play when Hickman knocked down a three-pointer in transition from the right corner to make it 56-55. But a pair of Davidson free throws by Jason Richards gave the Wildcats the lead right back just 10 seconds later. UNCG battled back to tie it again on Hines’ 28th and 29th points of the game with a bucket in the paint with 2:02 to play to set the stage for the thrilling ending.

GREENVILLE, SC – Ricky Hickman didn’t start the game against Furman, but he did finish it. Hickman, who came off the bench as a change of scenery, finished with a game-high 29 points as UNC Greensboro picked up a big road win in double-overtime at Furman, 91-86, at Timmons Arena. It was the second time that UNCG had brought Hickman off the bench. He scored 16 points off the bench in UNCG’s win over Gardner-Webb 18 days earlier. Hines finished with 16 points and nine rebounds. Kendall Toney, who started in place of Hickman, had 17 points for UNCG. Eric Webb led Furman with 26 points, while Mousea Diagne added 18 points for the Paladins. Robbie Bostain had a double-double with 15 points and 11 rebounds. Late in the second ovetime with UNCG leading by three, Dwayne Johnson missed two free throws to keep Furman within striking distance. Eric Webb nailed a three-pointer from the top of the key on the ensuing possession to tie the score, 84-84, with 51 seconds to play. But Hickman made consecutive plays to put the Spartans over the top. First, he drove the lane and converted a conventional three-point play with 33.5 seconds left to put UNCG back up by three. Then, he stole the ball at midcourt and drove down for the lay-up and an 89-84 lead with 22 seconds to go. After a basket by Bostain, Hickman knocked down two more free throws with 11 seconds left to put the game away. It was UNCG’s first overtime win since January 2005 and the Spartans first overtime win on the road since December 21, 1999 when it won at Winthrop. It was also the first time in 11 meetings between the two schools that a team won in the other’s home city. Including a conference tournament game in Greenville in 2002, the hometown team had won all 10 previous meetings. Toney, making his first collegiate start, sparked UNCG early with four threepointers in the first 11 minutes of the contest. He scored 12 of his team’s first 18 points to give UNCG an 18-17 advantage with nine minutes left in the first half. Neither team held a lead of more than three points until the closing minutes of the first half. UNCG held Furman scoreless for a span of 4:29. That resulted in an 8-0 UNCG run and a 31-24 lead with less than a minute before half. Furman climbed back in it early in the second half. A tip-in by Stanley Jones tied the score, 37-37, with 15:03 to play. Meanwhile, UNCG went cold, recording just one field goal in a six-minute span. Tony Anderson knocked down a three-pointer with 12:43 to play to give the Paladins the lead again, 43-40, which was on the tail end of a 15-3 run by Furman. After Furman extended the lead to seven at one point, UNCG rallied to pull within one. Toney hit his first field goal of the second half, his fifth three-pointer of the game, with 2:17 to play to pull UNCG within 63-62. But after Furman called timeout, Webb answered with a trey from the left corner with two minutes to play. After Hines hit one of two at the line for UNCG, Jones got loose on a pick-and-roll for a dunk to make the lead four with 1:15 to play, 68-64. After a UNCG timeout, Hickman knocked down a three-pointer from the left wing with 41.4 seconds to play to pull UNCG back to within one, 68-67. Dwayne Johnson fouled Bostain with 19.7 seconds left, but Bostain left the door open when he missed the first of two free throws – the only free throw Furman missed all day. The Spartans called their last timeout to set up the final possession. Mikko Koivisto drove from the top of the key and knocked down a runner from 10 feet away with 5.7 seconds left to set-up overtime. Webb drove the lane and scored with 19.1 seconds left in the first overtime. Jadee Jones fouled Mikko Koivisto with 17.6 to play, but Koivisto missed the first of two free throws, giving UNCG a 77-75 lead after he made the second. Bostain drove the lane and was fouled with 9.5 seconds left and proceeded to make both to tie the game. Hickman drove the lane for a leaner but it would not fall and a second overtime was needed.

2006-07 Season Review

HAMPTON, VA – Hampton University got 22 points from Michael Freeman and 20 points by Rashad West to upend UNC Greensboro, 71-64. Junior guard Kevin Oleksiak and junior forward Kyle Hines led the Spartans (2-5) with 19 points each. For Hines, it was his 28th consecutive game in double figures to set a school record. He also grabbed 10 rebounds for this third doubledouble of the season and 24th of his career, three shy of a school record. The loss snapped UNCG’s two-game winning streak. Hampton’s win snapped a five-game losing streak for the Pirates (2-6) and was their first against UNCG in four meetings. Hampton came out with 2-2-1 three-quarter court pressure to try to take UNCG out of its offensive flow. It worked at the outset as Hampton ran off nine straight points to open the game. Once the Spartans settled down against the scrambling defense, they went on an 8-2 run to get right back into the game. By the 13:30 mark, a steal and lay-up by Oleksiak tied the game, 17-17. Coming off of a season-high 16 points in Monday’s win over Wofford, Oleksiak finished the first half with 11 points. The game remained tight throughout the remainder of the first half with neither team able to open up a lead of more than four points. A put back by Kyle Hines at the buzzer knotted the game up, 32-32, at the intermission. After UNCG scored the first five points of the second half, Hampton went out on a 14-3 run, causing havoc at times with its pressure defense once again. The spurt opened up a 46-40 Pirate lead with 13 minutes to play. Things didn’t get much better for UNCG at the 5:17 mark when Ricky Hickman fouled out and the Pirates stretched the lead to 12 in the process. After making one of two at the foul line, Hampton chased down a tipped rebound, ran the shot clock down and then got a three-pointer from the right corner by Demario Mattox from the right corner to take a 62-50 lead. The Spartans made things interesting in the final minute. With some full court pressure of their own, they forced a few turnovers and got back to within four in the final minute. With 29.2 seconds left and UNCG trailing by five, Kendall Toney fouled Hampton’s Mattox. He knocked down both free throws to get the margin back to seven. Ben Stywall cut it to five with a basket and UNCG fouled again. After Freeman made one of two at the line, UNCG’s Dwayne Johnson drove down to cut it to four. West was then fouled and missed one of two, but the Spartans misfired on their next possession and the threat was ended.

G11: UNCG 74, Delaware 64

GREENSBORO, NC – Ricky Hickman finished with a game-high 28 points and Kyle Hines added his 26th career double-double with 19 points and 14 rebounds to lead UNC Greensboro to a 79-58 win over Saint Peter’s in men’s basketball action Thursday night at Fleming Gym. On his way to his 22nd career 20-point game, Hickman scored 12 of his points in the first 12:10 as UNCG (4-6) used a 24-0 run to break the game wide open. The win was UNCG’s fourth in its last six games. Hickman, a senior from Winston-Salem, NC, also became the 31st player in school history to grab 300 career rebounds, while Hines topped the 600-rebound mark for his career. Hines, who scored in double figures for the 31st straight game to extend his school record, also moved into fourth place on the Southern Conference’s career blocks list at 215. The junior from Sicklerville, NJ is already UNCG’s career record holder. Saint Peter’s (3-7) got 20 points from Kevin Spann and 17 points from Raul Orta. The Peacocks got to within eight in the second half after trailing by as many as 25 in the first half. But UNCG pulled away late for the easy win. “I think sometimes in college basketball, you can get up by a big number of points almost too early because it becomes difficult to sustain,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement. “But we changed some defenses on them in the second half, took them out of their rhythm and eventually stretched the lead back out again.” The Spartans used a 24-0 run midway through that first half to take an 8-7 game and turn it into a 32-7 rout. Hickman had 10 of the 24 in the run, which saw the Peacocks go scoreless for eight minutes. The Peacocks missed 16 of their first 18 shots from the floor to open the game. The Peacocks scored seven of the next 10 points to get the margin under 20, 33-14, after a deep three-pointer by Raul Orta with five minutes to play in the first half. Saint Peter’s then cut it to 14 just before half as Todd Sowell scored the last six points before the intermission, cutting the UNCG lead to 40-26 at the break. That trend continued to open the second half as Saint Peter’s scored the first four points of the second half. Buckets by Spann and Sowell cut the margin to 10, forcing the Spartans to call a timeout just 46 second into the half. After two Dwayne Johnson free throws, Spain knocked down a three-pointer to cut the margin to single-digits for the first time since the 11:45 mark of the first half. Spain cut it to eight on the next possession, connecting on three free throws after Hickman scored on a backdoor lay-up on the other end. But that would be as close as the Peacocks would get as UNCG would eventually stretch the lead back to 21, starting with a 10-3 run to push it back to 54-39. Later, a 10-1 run would run the lead back to 20 after Saint Peter’s got back to within 11. Saint Peter’s would not get within a dozen the rest of the way.

GREENSBORO, NC – Freshman Ben Stywall recorded his first career doubledouble and Kyle Hines had 27 points as UNC Greensboro led wire-to-wire in a 74-64 win over Delaware at Fleming Gymnasium. The Spartans led by as many as 23 before the Blue Hens scrambled back into the game late with full court pressure. Leading by nine with 47.2 second to play, Dwayne Johnson missed the front end of a one-and-one. But Stywall grabbed his 13th rebound of the day for UNCG and the Spartans were able to hold on for their third straight win. Stywall, a native of Charlotte, NC, finished with a career-high 23 points and 15 rebounds. His previous high for points this season was eight. Hines, a junior from Sicklerville, NJ, scored in double figures for the 32nd straight game, extending his school record. He scored 10 points in the first 11 minutes of the game as the Spartans jumped all over the Blue Hens right from the outset. The All-America candidate leads the Southern Conference in scoring and rebounding this season, averaging 21.7 points and 10.1 rebounds per contest. “If you had told me before the game that Ricky (Hickman) would have seven points and we would win, I’d say no way,” said Hines, who went over the 1,200point mark for his career. “We still have our best basketball to play. I like some of the things we are doing, but we haven’t gotten it going yet to where everyone is going at the same time.” Delaware got 21 points from Herb Courtney and 13 points from Zaire Taylor, including three three-pointers. Calvin Cannon also chipped in 12 points. The loss dropped Delaware to 0-9, the worst start for a Delaware team since 1929-30. The Blue Hens are one of two teams in Division I winless this season, joining Iona. “We didn’t finish the game the way we would have liked, obviously,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement. “But we did do some good things to get our selves into that position earlier in the game.” UNCG (5-6) turned up the defense right from the opening tip on Saturday, going out to a 19-2 lead. Delaware missed its first 10 shots from the floor and did not record a field goal until the 10:40 mark, when Sam McMahon knocked down a three-pointer from the left corner. After UNCG extended the lead to 20, the Blue Hens got back into the swing of things. Delaware scored eight straight points with Brian Johnson and Calvin Cannon each scoring four points to pull back to within 28-16. Delaware got no closer in the first half as UNCG took a 37-24 lead to the locker room. But UNCG, which held a 41-27 advantage on the boards, used Hines and Stywall to put together a run to open the second half and push lead back out over 20 again. The Spartans started the half on a 13-4 run with Stywall scoring eight points and Hines scoring five in the run to give the Spartans a 50-28 advantage. Delaware made a late run, holding the Spartans scoreless for more than three minutes. The 11-0 run, sparked by full court pressure, closed the gap to just 65-54 with 2:36 to play. A three-pointer by Darrell Johnson with 1:01 left got the Blue Hens to within nine, 69-60.

STATESBORO, GA – Georgia Southern went 14:37 without a field goal in the second half and UNCG went on a 32-4 run in the span on its way to a 68-47, in men’s basketball action at Hanner Fieldhouse.. As the Spartans switched to their 2-3 match-up zone, the Eagles (6-6, 0-2 SoCon) missed 17consecutive shots from the floor and were just two of six at the line in the drought. The win was UNCG’s fourth win in a row and sixth in the Spartans’ last eight games after an 0-4 start. All-American candidate Kyle Hines tied a school-record with his 27th career double-double, leading the way with 20 points and 13 rebounds. It was Hines 33rd consecutive game scoring in double-digits, extending his school record. In the course of the streak, it was the 16th time that Hines has scored 20 or more points. UNCG freshman Mikko Koivisto scored 13 of his 16 points in the second half, tying his season high for points, to spark UNCG’s comeback. Senior guard Ricky Hickman added 18 points. Georgia Southern, which lost for just the third time at Hanner Fieldhouse in its last 40 home games, was led by Donte Gennie’s 17 points, 13 of those coming in the first half. “This is a good win for us, as it is whenever you win on the road in the conference,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement. “They missed shots and it just snowballed on them. It has happened to us a couple of times this year. You miss a few, then another and another - and you can see the look on their faces. We’ve been there. Those are shots that will fall for those guys – Foreman and Gennie in particular.” The 21-point loss was Georgia Southern’s worst at home since January 31, 1998. It was the Eagles’ worst home loss under coach Jeff Price. In the first 14 minutes of the contest, neither team was able to breakaway as the margin never got to more than five. Using the three-point line, Georgia Southern opened things up in the latter part of the first half by knocking down six of its first nine from behind the line. The Eagles had opened up a five-point lead, 17-12, but a conventional three-point play by Hines tied the scored, 17-17, with 8:26 to play in the half to cap a 5-0 mini-run. But the Eagles answered with an 11-3 spurt of their own, capped off by Dwayne Foreman’s three-pointer from the right wing, to open up a 28-20 lead with 5:35 left in the half. UNCG, which made just 3-of-8 from the foul line in the first half, nibbled at the lead a couple of times before the intermission, but went to the locker room trailing by six, 35-29. UNCG (6-6, 3-1) slowly pecked away in the second half, then shifted into high gear. The Spartans used a monsterous 31-4 run to regain the lead and pull away. The Spartans held Georgia Southern to just one field goal in a span of nearly 16 minutes and more than 14 minutes without a bucket. Koivisto’s threepointer with 12:07 to play gave UNCG its first lead since the opening minutes of the game, 44-43. Koivisto sparked the run as he accounted for eight of UNCG’s first 12 points in the run. The Spartans continued to pull away from there as Georgia Southern couldn’t make a shot from the floor, and struggled from the free throw line as well. By the time the Eagles’ Louis Graham knocked down a three-pointer at the 1:49 mark, the Spartans’ lead had already hit 20. Georgia Southern shot just 4-for-25 from the floor in the pivotal second half.

CULLOWHEE, NC – Junior forward Kyle Hines set the UNC Greensboro career record with his 28th career double-double, but Western Carolina rallied from a 12point second half deficit to defeat the Spartans 57-54 at the Ramsey Center. Kendall Toney led the Spartans with 15 points. Hines, an All-American candidate, had his seventh double-double this season with 13 points and 12 rebounds. It was also his 35th straight game scoring in double figures, extending his school record. The Spartans (6-8, 3-2) were hampered by foul trouble all day long as four players finished with four fouls. Western Carolina (6-9, 3-1) snapped a five-game losing skid. The Catamounts were led by Nick Aldridge’s 15 points and 14 points by Antonio Russell. “We’ve done this a couple of times this year,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement. “We play 32 minutes very well and then don’t finish. We’ve had 10 point leads a couple of times and lost. We’ve got to turn that around.” Behind seven early points by Dwayne Johnson, the Spartans opened up a 14-8 lead midway through the first half. But Johnson, a junior from Queens, NY, was sidelined with 9:31 left in the half with his second personal foul. To compound matters, Hines, the Spartans’ leading scorer and rebounder, picked up two quick fouls shortly thereafter and headed to the bench and the frontcourt alternatives of freshman Pete Brown and junior Matt Akinosho picked up their second fouls shortly after that. In fact, Akinosho was whistled for a third and fourth foul in the closing minutes of the first half and had to go to the bench. That helped the Catamounts stay within striking distance throughout the first half, although UNCG led for the last 15 minutes of the half. Despite all the foul trouble, however, UNCG took a 24-20 lead to the locker room. After Western Carolina scored the first points of the second half, UNCG went out on a 10-0 run, establishing Hines down low quickly. The junior from Sicklerville, NJ scored five of the 10 points in the run as the Spartans took the first double-digit lead of the day, 34-22, with just under 15 minutes to play. But the Catamounts slowly climbed back in it as UNCG recorded just two field goals in an eight-minute span. Western pulled back to within five before a three-pointer by the Catamounts’ Jake Robinson cut the deficit to two, 44-42, with 6:42 to play. Kyle Greathouse then gave Western the lead with a three-pointer off a steal with 5:14 to play, 48-47. Hines extended his streak when he scored with five minutes to play to give the Spartans the lead once again, 49-48, but picked up his fourth foul on the ensuing possession. The lead see-sawed back and forth from that point. Hines gave UNCG a 54-53 lead with 1:43 to play with a move in the low post. On the next possession, Western Carolina’s Antonio Russell was fouled driving to the basket. He converted both free throws to give Western the lead with 1:26 to go. After Stywall missed a three-pointer and Western grabbed the rebound,, Hines blocked a shot with 44 seconds to play in the low post to give the Spartans a chance with a seven second difference on the clock.s. The Spartans had two shots at it, a miss by Hickman and a putback attempt by Hines, but neither would go down and the ball went out of bounds with 8.2 seconds to play. Greathouse hit two free throws with 6.5 seconds left to give Western Carolina a three-point lead. Western had a foul to give on the in-bounds and used it at midcourt. After the ball was inbounded again, Ricky Hickman got a look at a long three-pointer, but it was off the mark and the Spartans had lost their second in a row.

G15: UNCG 72, Elon 68 ELON, NC – Ricky Hickman made two free throws with 1.1 seconds to play to put the game out of reach as UNCG won for just the second time ever at Elon, 72-68. Hickman, who didn’t start the game after a tough shooting day at Western Carolina, finished with 23 points, 18 of those in the second half. The senior from Winston-Salem, NC had come off the bench on four previous occasions this season when he has struggled, averaging 17.0 ppg in those four outings. Kyle Hines had 24 points and nine rebounds to lead UNCG (7-8, 4-2 SoCon). Hines went over 1,300 points for his career in the process and extended his double figure scoring streak to 36 consecutive games. It was the 18th time during his school record streak that he has gone for 20 or more points in a game. UNCG’s only other win in 11 trips to the Koury Center came on November 27, 2001. It was also UNCG’s third conference road win already this season. UNCG has played half of its conference road games and it is only January 8. A five-point possession turned the tide as UNCG took advantage of a technical foul on Elon’s Brett James. James blocked two shots in a sequence, but then made the mistake of screaming about it in the face of Kyle Hines and drawing the technical. Mikko Koivisto sank both free throws and Hickman, who was 0-for-9 from behind the arc in Saturday’s loss to Western Carolina, knocked down a threepointer from the right corner to push the Spartan lead back to eight with 2:18 to play after Elon had nearly rallied all the way back from an 11-point deficit. UNCG had to hold on from there, though, as Levon Jordan had 13 points in the final 51 seconds to nearly single-handedly pull Elon (3-11, 1-3 SoCon) back into it. He finished with a team-high 24 points. As has been the norm when these two teams get together, the game was tight right from the outset. Eight of the last nine meetings entering Monday had been decided by single-digits and this game was no exception. Neither team led by more than four for the first 13 minutes, but UNCG’s offense began to sputter with just one field goal in a six-minute span. The Phoenix went on an 8-2 run during that drought, capped off by Jordan’s 18-footer from the left wing in transition to give Elon a 26-20 lead with 6:13 left in the half and force a UNCG timeout. But Elon had just one field goal during the remainder of the half and UNCG ran off eight straight points. The Spartans used that momentum to take a 31-28 lead into the intermission. After Elon scored the first four points of the second half to regain a brief lead, the Spartans ran off eight of the next 10 points to open up their biggest lead of the night to that point, 39-34, four minutes into the second half. Elon used a 6-0 run to take a 40-39 lead, but the Spartans responded once again. UNCG went on a 17-3 run, stifling the Phoenix on the defensive end primarily with their 2-3 match-up zone. The run created the first double-digit lead of the game for either team, 54-43. Elon fought back to within three, going on a 12-4 run to trim UNCG’s lead to 58-55 with 3:51 to play. The run was capped off by a thunderous dunk by Scott Grable. But UNCG took advantage of the technical foul on James and then had to knock down its free throws and hang on. The Spartans hit 4-of-6 before Jordan knocked down a three-pointer with 20 seconds to go to pull Elon within 68-65. Dwayne Johnson missed his first free throw with 18.4 seconds left, but made the second to make it a four-point game. Jordan then had a three -point attempt go halfway down and come out. Hines grabbed the rebound and was fouled. He made one of two to make it a five-point game, but Jordan nailed a three-pointer falling down to get it back to two. Hickman, however, knocked down two at the line to put the game away and gave the Spartans their fourth win in conference play this season, equaling last year’s total.

2006-07 Season Review

RALEIGH, NC – NC State connected on 12-of-16 from the free throw line in overtime and survived a school-record 16 treys by UNCG in a 95-93 Wolfpack victory. UNCG, which had a four-game winning streak snapped, was led by Kendall Toney’s 28 points. Toney hit eight three-pointers, the most ever by a UNCG freshman and one short of a school record set by Kevin Oleksiak last year. Kyle Hines had 27 points and six rebounds for the Spartans. It was Hines’ third straight game of 20 or more points. Ricky Hickman had a double-double with 21 points and 11 rebounds. He connected on five three-pointers. Freshman forward Mikko Koivisto chipped in 13 points for the Spartans. It was the first time in UNCG’s Division I era (since 1991-92) that three Spartans topped the 20-point mark in the same game. The Wolfpack had four players in double figures, led by Ben McCauley’s 26 points. He also had 10 rebounds and eight assists and scored six of his points in the overtime session. Brandon Costner and Courtney Fells each had 19 points, while Gavin Grant added 18 points for NC State. “It was a great college basketball game,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement. “It came down to a couple of plays at the end and they made more of them than we did. We had a couple of chances at the end of regulation, but we just couldn’t get the shot to fall. We played hard and should be proud of the way we played, but you don’t want to play that well and let one get away.” Hickman gave UNCG a three-point lead with 21 seconds left in regulation, 77-74, but Grant knocked down a three-pointer from the top of the key with nine seconds left to tie it, 77-77. The Spartans had one last chance at the end of regulation, but Hickman’s fallaway 13-footer hit off the back of the rim and the game headed to overtime. In overtime, NC State scored first when McCauley took it down low and drew Hines’ fourth foul. McCauley hit both shots to give the Wolfpack a two-point lead, 79-77. After UNCG miss, McCauley beat the Spartan defense down the floor for an 81-77 lead. Hines was fouled on the next possession and connected on both to cut it to two, but NC State answered on the next possession with another McCauley bucket and Hines was called for his fifth foul a minute later. It was a scene reminiscent of December 5, 2000, when the Spartans gave the Wolfpack all they could handle for 40 minutes before falling 77-76, at the RBC Center. This time, UNCG gave NC State all it could for 45 minutes. The teams came out hot and got up and down the floor in a hurry early in front of an ESPNU audience. Both teams shot better than 50 percent from the floor in the first 10 minutes of the contest with UNCG taking a 23-21 lead on Toney’s fifth three-pointer of the night with 9:45 to play in the half. The Spartans led by as many as six in the first half before NC State rallied. The Wolfpack held UNCG without a field goal for nearly three minutes and ran off seven straight points to take a 35-34 lead with 3:49 left before half. But UNCG regained the lead before heading to the locker room. Coming out of a timeout, Koivisto came off a screen and knocked down a three-pointer from the top of the key to give the Spartans a 42-38 lead. Costner, however, answered with a trey from the left corner just before time expired to trim UNCG’s lead to 42-41 at the break. The Spartans took an eight-point lead to open the second half, going right to Hines from the outset. He scored seven points in the first 2:10 of the second half to give UNCG a 51-43 lead. A steal and a coast-to-coast lay-up by Hines put him over the 20-point for the night, the 17th time during his streak he has scored 20 or more, to give UNCG a double-digit lead for the first time, 55-45. The lead hit 11 before the Wolfpack began slicing into it. As UNCG went nearly six minutes without a field goal, NCSU put together a 10-1 run, the last five points at the free throw line, to cut the Spartan lead to two, 59-57 with just under 11 minutes to play. NC State suffered a setback when Costner picked up his fourth foul with just 9:53 to play. But momentum stayed with the Wolfpack as Courtney Fells knocked down both ends of a one-and-one to give the Wolfpack a 61-60 lead with 8:36 left. When the drought finally broke, UNCG bounced back. The Spartans hit three in a row from the field, capped off by a 15-footer by Mikko Koivisto from the left baseline to give UNCG a 67-63 lead.

G16: Virginia Tech 74, UNCG 51

G17: UNCG 67, Chattanooga 57

GREENSBORO, NC- Kyle Hines led UNC Greensboro with 21 points, but no other Spartan scored more than seven points as Virginia Tech upended UNCG, 74-51, in men’s basketball action at the Greensboro Coliseum on Wednesday night. It was Hines’ 37th straight game of 10 or more points, extending his school record streak. It was the 19th time in the streak that Hines has scored 20 or more points. He entered the game averaging 21.5 ppg, ranking 11th in the nation. He moved into seventh place on UNCG’s career scoring list, raising his total to 1,330 points in just his junior season. However, as good as Hines was, the rest of his team struggled. Hines accounted for half of his team’s 16 field goals. Outside of Hines’ 21 points, the remaining four starters only scored eight points for the Spartans (7-9). Kevin Oleksiak and Bart Tooms each had seven points off the bench for the Spartans. Virginia Tech, meanwhile, was pretty good themselves from the field. The Hokies (12-4) shot 48 percent from the field, although they were above 50 percent most of the night until the benches emptied, and hit 10-of-15 from behind the three-point line. Four Hokies scored in double-figures, led by Zabian Dowdell’s 17 points. Dowdell was 4-of-5 from behind the three-point arc. A.D. Vassallo added 16 points in 24 minutes off the bench, while Coleman Collins and Jamon Gordon each chipped in with 10 points. “We knew coming into the game tonight that we were going to have to make jump shots because of their ability to block shots,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement. “We weren’t able to do that. Had we gotten a few of those shots to go down, particularly early, we might have been ok. “Tooms gave us a lift at the start of the second half (when UNCG cut the lead to seven). But then they got hot and it just got away from us. We started to get tired, having played three games in five days.” The Spartans struggled offensively right from the outset. UNCG missed 10 of its first 12 from the field. In fact, Hines was the majority of the offense in the first half. Hines, a junior from Sicklerville, NJ, made UNCG’s first six field goal on his way to 16 first-half points. UNCG didn’t have a field goal from any other player until the final minute of the first half. Kendall Toney knocked down a three-pointer for UNCG’s first non-Hines field goal. Despite the inbalance, however, UNCG trailed by just 12 at the half, 36-24. Virginia Tech, on the other hand, knocked down 7-of-10 from three-point range in the opening half to account for a good portion of the halftime margin. The Hokies, coming off a win at No. 5 Duke and facing a game at home against top-ranked North Carolina on Saturday, showed no signs of the infamous “trap game” early on. UNCG pulled to within seven, 37-30, on Kyle Hines’ 19th point of the night early in the second half. But the Hokies ran off 11 straight points to open up a 48-30 lead with 16 minutes to play. Virginia Tech extended the lead from there, opening it up to 60-32 over the next five minutes, and wasn’t threatened after that.

G18: UNCG 80, Appalachian State 76

GREENSBORO, NC- UNC Greensboro held Chattanooga to just one field goal in the final 3:37 to secure a 67-57 win in Southern Conference action at Fleming Gym. Freshman Kendall Toney led all scorers with 17 points, including five threepointers. Kyle Hines added 16 points, eight rebounds and four blocks for the Spartans (8-9, 5-2 SoCon). Ricky Hickman chipped in with 12 points and Mikko Koivisto added 11 points. Hines entered the game having shot 75 percent from the floor in five career games against the Mocs. Chattanooga did a good job on the All-American candidate on Saturday, forcing him into a 4-for-10 night from the floor with the double teams that Hines has gotten accustomed to night in and night out. But the Sicklerville, NJ native still managed to score 16 points to extend his streak of scoring 10 or more points to 38 consecutive games. Chattanooga (8-11, 1-6) was led by Marcus Watts’ 11 points, the first time he has led the Mocs in scoring this season. Nicchaeus Doaks and Casey Long each chipped in 10 points apiece. With UNCG holding a 10-point lead and just under four minutes remaining, the Mocs rallied to cut the lead to five. But Dwayne Johnson’s only field goal of the night – a three-pointer from the top of the key – gave UNCG an eight-point lead and set the stage Chattanooga’s need to foul. The Spartans hit 4-of-4 at the line to put the game out of reach. “I think that last six to eight minutes were our best defensive effort this season,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement, whose team broke a four-game losing skid to Chattanooga. “Matt Akinosho gave us a big lift, not just with his blocks down the stretch, but he had a big bucket, too, when one of our guys was falling out of bounds and flipped it back under the basket. “We did the things that don’t show up on a stat sheet tonight. Dwayne Johnson had a block out foul and we made a big deal about it because that is the kind of things we need to do defensively. And we got four guys scoring in double figures. We need that kind of balance, not like we had the other night against Virginia Tech where Kyle was the only one scoring.” Early on, UNCG showed no signs of a hangover from Wednesday’s 23-point loss to Virginia Tech, forcing five turnovers in the first four minutes of the game and jumping out to a 10-0 lead. UNCG went nearly six minutes without a field goal, however, midway through the first half and the Mocs rallied back to take the lead. Keddric Mays’ three-pointer from the left wing closed Chattanooga to within 16-13 just inside of the 10-minute mark. Matt Gwynne followed that up on the Mocs’ next possession with a bucket to get to within a point. Doaks followed that with a three-pointer from the top of the key to give the Mocs an 18-16 lead and cap off a 14-1 run. From there the came became a see-saw battle of runs. Chattanooga didn’t find the basket for the next four minutes and the Spartans ran off the next nine points to regain the lead, 25-18. Kendall Toney accounted for six of the nine points with a pair of treys in the run. Chattanooga battled back to within two at the intermission when Ricky Hood scored the last four points of the half, however, and then scored the first four points of the second half to take a 33-29 lead. But UNCG battled back with a 13-4 run, capped off by a baseline drive and dunk by Ricky Hickman, to take a 42-37 lead. Chattanooga battled back to tie the game at 48-48 before a UNCG 12-2 run that was sparked on the defensive end by Akinosho. A native of Sanford, NC, Akinosho had three blocks in a span of 2:20 to shut the Mocs off on the offensive end as UNCG opened up a 10-point lead with just under four minutes to play. The Mocs did not get closer than five points the rest of the way.

GREENSBORO, NC- Kyle Hines scored 33 points on 14-of-19 shooting from the floor as UNCG took over first place in the Southern Conference’s North Division with an 80-76 win over Appalachian State in front of a sellout crowd at Fleming Gym. Appalachian State shot an unbelievable 64.6 percent, the seventh time in eight games that the Mountaineers had shot 50 percent or better from the floor. UNCG shot well, too, scoring at a 59.2 percent clip. However, UNCG made 7-of-10 at the line in the final two minutes after making just 7-of-18 in the game’s first 38 minutes. The game featured 18 lead changes and seven ties. Neither team held a double digit margin, although Appalachian State had a nine-point lead in the first half. Hines’ 33-point effort was his third 30-point game of the season for. He is the third player in school history and the first since 1988-89, to accomplish that feat. Appalachian State came in with an RPI of 48, making it UNCG’s highest RPI-rated win ever. UNCG’s previous best was when it beat Davidson in the SoCon Tournament semifinals two years ago and the Wildcats’ were No. 68 thanks to the nation’s longest winning streak at the time at 16 games. UNCG also got 16 points from Kendall Toney and 10 points from Ben Stywall. Toney knocked down five three-pointers for the second straight game. Appalachian State was led by Demetrius Scott’s 16 points. D.J. Thompson added 15 points and Donte Minter chipped in with 14. “I don’t think I have ever seen a game where a team shot 65 percent and lost,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement. “I told the guys in the locker room afterwards that at the start of the year, we were finding ways to lose games. Now, it seems like we are starting to find ways to win them. We had to find a way tonight with them shooting like they did.” Appalachian State came out bombing away from deep. In the first four minutes of the Mountaineers hit their first four shots from three-point range, two by Nathan Cranford and two by D.J. Thompson. UNCG countered by going to its big gun in Kyle Hines, picking up three early fouls on the Appalachian State frontcourt and sending Jeremy Clayton to the bench early after two quick ones. Making seven of their first 10 from the field overall, Appalachian State opened up an early 19-10 lead in the first 6:40 of the contest. But the Mountaineers made just 2-of-6 from behind the three-point line after the first four minutes of the game. Still trailing by seven points midway through the first half, UNCG went on a 9-0 run to take its first lead since the opening seconds of the game. Ricky Hickman got it started with a rainbow jumper from the left corner with 11:12 left in the half and when it was done more than four minutes later, UNCG held a 25-23 lead. Appalachian State, however, closed out the half on a 12-4 run to take a 42-38 lead into the break. UNCG opened the second half on a 7-2 run to regain the lead briefly, but the Mountaineers answered with an 8-1 run to open up a six-point advantage, 52-46, with 15 minutes to play. UNCG rallied with the next five points and it became a see-saw affair from there. A timeout by the UNCG bench set-up a play that swung the momentum with 2:39 left. With the shot clock winding down, Dement called a timeout. As he called timeout, Mikko Koivisto released a three-point attempt from the left corner. The ball went in for what would have been a five-point lead. Instead, UNCG was given the timeout. However, coming out of the timeout, Hines scored off an out-of-bounds play to give UNCG a four-point lead, 73-69. UNCG then forced a shot clock violation on the other end and gained possession with 1:58 to play. Koivisto missed a three-pointer 17 seconds later, but chased down his own rebound to give UNCG a fresh shot clock. Appalachian State was then forced to foul. The Spartans then hit 7-of-10 over the final 1:12 to hold off the Mountaineers and gain first place in the SoCon North Division. The Spartans went to 6-2 in league play for the first time since 2001-02.

GREENSBORO, NC – Ricky Hickman and Kyle Hines scored UNCG’s last 40 points and combined for 55 on the night to lead UNC Greensboro to a 69-54 win over Furman at Fleming Gym. Hickman scored 17 straight points in the second half on his way to a seasonhigh 31 as UNCG kept pace atop to SoCon North Division standings with the win. Hickman and Hines recorded 21 of UNCG’s 26 field goals. Hickman recorded his 25th career game of 20 or more points and his third game of 30 or more. Hines recorded his SoCon leading ninth double-double with 24 points and 10 rebounds. It was the 30th double-double of Hines’ career. He also moved into fifth place on the UNCG career scoring list, passing UNCG’s first-ever 1,000 point scorer Bruce Shaw. The duo scored UNCG’s last 40 points, including all 36 in the second half. Kendall Toney’s three-pointer with 3:33 left in the first half was the last points not scored by Hines or Hickman. It was UNCG’s fifth-straight conference win, the longest string during UNCG’s 10-year SoCon tenure. You have to go back to January 1996 for UNCG to have won five-straight conference wins. That came when the Spartans were a member of the Big South and UNCG won nine straight games over two seasons with two coaches – one being current UNCG coach Mike Dement. Furman got 12 points from Gerad Punch and 10 points from Robby Bostain. After their lowest scoring victory in more than 12 years in their last outing a week ago at The Citadel, the Spartans got the offense going early against Furman on Saturday. UNCG jumped out to a 20-4 lead in the first nine minutes of the game. Hines scored six, while Hickman and Oleksiak each scored five. Hines picked up his second foul a couple ticks before the 10-minute mark and the UNCG offense sputtered. The Spartans scored just two field goals over a nine-minute span. The defense continued to keep Furman in check for a while, but then the Paladins cut the lead to 10 at 26-16 after Robby Bostain’s drive down the lane. But Hines came back and UNCG ran off seven of the next nine, including Hines’ 10th and 12th points of the night to extend his streak of games with 10 or more points to 41 straight games. The spurt gave UNCG a 33-18 advantage. Furman cut the lead to single-digits, however, by scoring the final four points of the first half and the first two of the second half. That started a 10-2 run that cut the Spartan lead to seven for the first time since the game’s first six minutes. A jumper by Furman’s Alex Opacic from the right wing cut the Spartan lead to 43-36 with 13:44 to play. But Hickman stole the ball and went coast-to-coast for the conventional three-point lead and a 10-point UNCG lead with 12:39 left. Furman cut the lead to five, but then Hickman took over, much the same way he did late in the game in the first meeting in Greenville. In the first meeting, Hickman had 26 of his 29 after halftime, including 13 in the two overtime periods. On Saturday, when Furman switched to man-to-man, the Paladins had no answer for Hickman driving to the basket. He scored 17 straight points for UNCG, taking the Spartan lead from 48-43 with 8:26 to play to 65-47 with less than four minutes left. He opened the surge with a three-pointer against Furman’s 2-3 zone. But when the Paladins switched to man-to-man, Hickman drove it to the basket time and again, either scoring off the drive or drawing contact to go to the free throw line. Furman remained winless at Fleming Gym, falling to 0-6 all-time.

GREENSBORO, NC – In a game where both teams had more turnovers than field goals, UNCG gutted one out to defeat Georgia Southern, 65-62, at Fleming Gym. The Spartans forced 26 Georgia Southern turnovers to win their sixth-straight conference game and keep pace with Appalachian State atop the North Division of the conference. Coming out of a timeout with 1:01 to play, UNCG ran the shot clock down. With five on the timer and Kyle Hines well-covered, Ricky Hickman drove and drew contact to get to the foul line. He knocked down both shots to give the Spartans a 64-62 lead. Georgia Southern had two shots on its initial possession, but UNCG couldn’t control the loose ball after the second shot and the Eagles got possession in front of their bench with 16.1 seconds left. Donte Gennie tried to drive the right side of the lane off of a ball screen at the top of the key with six seconds left. But Hickman reached in for a deflection and Kevin Oleksiak came up with the loose ball. Hickman was then fouled after Oleksiak flipped the ball back to him. Hickman made the first, but missed the second to leave the door open ever so slightly as Georgia Southern called timeout with 1.2 seconds left. However, the length of the court pass went out of bounds and UNCG was able to run out the remaining clock. Hines led the way for UNCG with a game-high 20 points and eight rebounds. Hickman added 15 points, five rebounds, four steals and four assists, while Oleksiak scored 10 points, all of them in the first half. UNCG didn’t help its cause at the free throw line, although it was there often. The Spartans were 26-of-40 from the foul line for the night, but made three big ones in the final 36 seconds to give UNCG its fifth-straight win overall. Despite UNCG going to the free throw line 26 more times that the Eagles, 40-14, overall fouls were relatively close, 23-18. UNCG made just 17 field goals and committed 18 turnovers, while Georgia Southern had 25 field goals, but turned the ball over 26 times. For much of the night, the teams had to have a feeling of déjà vu as the game had an almost identical feel of the game that was played four weeks earlier in Statesboro. The Spartans got off to a slow start, making just two field goals in the first eight minutes. But 7-of-10 at the free throw line kept the Spartans within striking distance at 14-11. The Eagles, however, got hot and made five shots in a row to spark a 13-4 run and open up a nine-point lead, 32-23, with six minutes to play in the opening half. UNCG ran off eight of the next nine to cut the margin to two late in the half. After a drive down the lane by Oleksiak just beat the buzzer, UNCG trailed by just one at the break, 38-37, despite Georgia Southern shooting 55 percent from the floor in the half. The start of the second half was more of the same as the Eagles continued to shoot the ball well, but turned the ball over. Meanwhile, UNCG looked out of sync offensively, but got to the free throw line and was able to take advantage of some of the turnovers to stay in striking distance. UNCG buckled down midway through the second half, however. UNCG held Georgia Southern to just three points over a nearly eight-minute span, leading to a 13-3 Spartan run. Ben Stywall gave UNCG a 51-50 lead with two free throws. After Gerogia Southern’s 22nd turnover of the night, Gennie was called for an intentional foul when Hickman drove to the basket. Hickman converted both free throws to give the Spartans a three-point lead with 8:26 to play, their first lead since 8-6. The game became a see-saw affair from there. Mikko Koivisto made his first field goal of the night a big one, a three-pointer from the left corner to give UNCG a 62-58 lead with three minutes to play. Graham scored on the other end to cut the margin to two. After a UNCG miss, Salazar scored on a tip-in to tie the game with 1:49 to play. Koivisto missed a three-pointer on the next possession, but chased down his own rebound to give the Spartans a new shot clock and set the stage for the final minute.

2006-07 Season Review

CHARLESTON, SC – UNC Greensboro held The Citadel without a field goal the final 4:38 to grind out its fourth straight conference win, 47-44, at McAlister Field House. Kyle Hines recorded his eighth double-double of the season and the 29th of his career with 18 points and 11 rebounds. It extended his string to 40 consecutive games scoring 10 or more points and gave UNCG a four-game SoCon winning streak, the longest for UNCG since January 2002. Hines became the second player in school history to score 400 points in a season three separate years, joining UNCG’s all-time leading scorer Jay Joseph. Hines is the first to do so in three consecutive years as Joseph’s came in his freshman, junior and senior seasons. The 47 points were the fewest UNCG scored in a win in 12 years dating back to December 19, 1994 - a 47-44 win over Akron. It was the sixth time in 1-1/2 seasons under Mike Dement that the Spartans held the opposition to less than 50 points. There were no style points for Saturday’s win as UNCG battled through a second-half drought of just two field goals over a nearly 13-minute span. But The Citadel wasn’t much more proficient. The Citadel managed just seven field goals in the second half, while UNCG managed just six. But it was just enough for the Spartans to hold onto first place in the SoCon’s North Division. After The Citadel shut down UNCG for a shot clock violation, UNCG’s Kevin Oleksiak got a piece of a three-point attempt to tie the game with 57 seconds to play and Hines grabbed the rebound. The Spartans ran the clock down to 26 seconds before calling timeout, but could not get a shot coming out of the timeout, either. However, UNCG (10-9, 7-2 SoCon) turned to the defense one last time, forcing The Citadel into a desperation shot as time expired, which fell short and UNCG had the big road win. The Spartans have now won in each of their last three trips to McAlister Field House. Demetrius Nelson had 13 points and Donny McLendon added 11 for The Citadel (6-13, 3-5). “It was exactly what we expected,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement. “We expected to come down here and be in a grind-it-out kind of a game and that is exactly what it was. They are better than they were a year ago and we really had to turn it up a notch on the defensive end to get it done today. We responded and are happy to get out of here with a win.” An 8-1 run by The Citadel gave it a 23-18 lead with five minutes to play in the first half, the biggest lead by either team to that point. UNCG missed six of eight from the floor, including a span of more than four minutes without a bucket, as a two-point Spartan lead turned into a five-point Bulldog advantage. But UNCG scored the last nine points to close out the half, despite Kyle Hines, Ricky Hickman and Ben Stawall all sitting on the bench with two fouls. UNCG held the Bulldogs without a field goal for the final 4:52 of the half. The half was capped off by a long three-pointer by Dwayne Johnson and an 18-footer by Kevin Oleksiak as the Spartans took a 27-23 lead into the locker room. Mikko Koivisto began the second half with a three-pointer to give UNCG its largest lead to that point at seven and cap the 12-0 run. The Bulldogs battled back to within one, 36-35, on Joseph Thompson’s bucket in the lane. UNCG went 7:15 between baskets as The Citadel rallied.

2006-07 Season Review

G22: Davidson 75, UNCG 65 DAVIDSON, NC – A 17-2 Wildcat run midway through the second half was the difference as Davidson defeated UNC Greensboro, 75-65, in a clash of Southern Conference division leaders at Belk Arena. UNCG, which began the day tied atop the North Division standings, had its five-game winning streak snapped with the loss. UNCG had also won six straight conference games. UNCG stayed tied atop the division, however, after Appalachian State lost in overtime at Furman. UNCG was led by Kyle Hines and Mikko Koivisto with 18 points each. Koivisto knocked down six three-pointers on the afternoon. Hines also grabbed eight rebounds on the afternoon and tied the UNCG career record for field goals with 596, equaling Jay Joseph’s mark. Davidson, which shot 57.6 percent in the second half from the floor after shooting 40.6 percent in the first half, turned it around in the second 20 minutes, forcing 13 UNCG turnovers and turning it into 16 points. The Wildcats were led by Stephen Curry with 29 points, the fourth straight game he had scored 20 or more points. Curry knocked down seven three-pointers on the afternoon. Boris Meno added 20 points, making his first nine shots from the floor. Meno also grabbed a game-high nine rebounds. Jason Richards also chipped in with points for Davidson. UNCG’s loss to Davidson was its ninth in the last 10 meetings. The Wildcats moved to 70-9 at Belk Arena over the last six seasons. The Spartans haven’t won in Belk since January 27, 2001, losing four in a row over that span. Quite the contrast from a year earlier at Belk Arena when Davidson jumped out to a 10-point lead in the first five minutes and never looked back, UNCG held a six-point lead midway through the first half, 18-12. The Spartans established themselves early on, knocking down shots from the perimeter and inside and drawing a pair of charges on the defensive end of the floor. Although UNCG led for much of the first half, there wasn’t much separation between the teams. The Spartans led by seven on a couple of occasions, but Davidson stayed within striking distance thanks to Curry’s three-point shooting. The freshman from Charlotte, NC knocked down four three-pointers in the first half and finished the half with 16 points. UNCG countered it with 14 points by Hines in the half and took a 37-33 lead into the break. The pace picked up and the teams came out hot to open the second half, combining to make seven of their first eight shots in the first 2:20. Meno hit his seventh consecutive shot from the floor for the Wildcats, driving down the lane to tie the score, 44-44, with 16:09 to play. A minute later Jason Richards scored on a give-and-go down the lane to give Davidson its first lead since 6-5. After Mikko Koivisto’s three-pointer with 12:48 left gave UNCG a 49-48 lead, Davidson ran off seven straight points, all by Jason Richards, to take its largest lead to that point, 55-49. From there, Davidson took over, stretching the lead to 12, 63-51, with 9:20 to play. Hines picked up his fourth foul on a charge with 8:07 to play and UNCG’s hopes of a comeback got decisively dimmer. The Spartans never got the margin to single-digits after that.

G23: Wofford 80, UNCG 75 (OT)

G24: College of Charleston 81, UNCG 59

SPARTANBURG, SC – Kyle Hines scored a game-high 30 points, but for the second straight year UNCG suffered a heartbreaking loss at the hands of Drew Gibson as the Terriers upended the Spartans, 80-75. Gibson scored six of Wofford’s 13 points in overtime, including a big three-pointer with 1:27 left in the extra session to give the Terriers a lead they would not surrender. Gibson, who scored eight points in the second overtime period to beat UNCG the season before at Johnson Arena, finished the night with 13 points and assists. Hines, who broke Jay Joseph’s UNCG career mark for field goals early in the first half, topped the 20-point mark for the 31st time in 83 career games. He also became the first player in school history to record four 30-point games in a single-season. Ben Stywall recorded a double-double, his second of the season, with 18 points and 12 rebounds. Mikko Koivisto chipped in with points, his second straight game in double figures.It was the second straight game that UNCG shot better than 50 percent from the floor and lost. UNCG scored the first five points of overtime, a power move by Hines and a trey by Koivisto, to take a 72-67 lead. A conventional three-point play on a putback by Wofford’s Tyler Whatley cut the lead to 72-70 with 2:38 left in the extra session. Stywall missed the front end of a one-and-one for UNCG before Gibson was fouled on the other end for Wofford. Gibson, who missed a pair at the line earlier in the overtime, knocked down both this time to tie the game with 2:06 to play. Shane Nichols fouled Ricky Hickman on UNCG’s next possession. Hickman made one-of-two to give UNCG a one-point lead. Gibson, reminiscent of how he carried Wofford to a double-overtime win over UNCG in Spartanburg last year, knocked down a three-pointer on the other end to give Wofford a 75-73 lead. UNCG turned it over on its next possession and then fouled Nichols with 47.1 seconds left. Nichols missed his first to leave the door open, but made his second. Koivisto missed a three-pointer from the top of the key and UNCG had to foul again. This time, Whatley stepped to the line and knocked down a pair to make it a five-point game. UNCG jumped out to an early 10-5 lead by hitting five of its first six shots, but found itself in trouble shortly after that. Wofford went on a 15-2 run to take a 20-12 lead with 12 minutes left in the first half. Nichols had two three-pointers to spark the run. UNCG did not surrender another field goal for five minutes to get back into it. The Spartans scored seven straight to get back to within one and the teams started to go back-and-forth from there. Neither team led by more than three for the remainder of the half as the Terriers had no answer for UNCG’s Hines but Wofford kept responding with three-point bombs. Hines had 17 points in the first half on 8-of-10 shooting to spark UNCG’s 67 percent first-half field goal shooting. Wofford, in the meantime, was 8-of-17 from three-point range in the first half, including 5-for-6 by Nichols, to stay within a point at the break, 41-40. Both teams made halftime adjustments and the tempo slowed in the second half. As UNCG was held to just one field goal over a six-minute span, Corey Godzinsky’s three-pointer from the right corner gave Wofford its first lead since late in the first half. While it was just the second three-pointer of the second half for the Terriers, it gave them a 56-55 advantage. Wofford’s Gibson drove the lane and converted a conventional three-point play with three minutes to go to give Wofford a 65-60 lead, its largest since midway through the first first half. The Spartans failed to score on their next two possessions, but turned to the half-court trap with 1:45 left and it paid dividends. Koivisto stole the ball and drove to the basket to cut it to 65-62. After a UNCG timeout, the Terriers got the ball into the frontcourt, but then threw it away against the pressure with 25 left. Stywall promptly knocked down a three-pointer from the right wing with 1:10 to play to tie the game. Wofford slowed things down and got a lay-up by Whatley with 32 second to play, but UNCG went back to Stywall and he scored on a fadeaway with 20.9 to play.

GREENSBORO, NC – Dontaye Draper scored 28 points, including eight three-pointers, as College of Charleston pulled away with a big second half to beat UNC Greensboro, 81-59, at Fleming Gym. Draper’s eight three-pointers tied a school-record and were one shy of an arena record set a season earlier by UNCG’s Kevin Oleksiak. He was a perfect 6-for-6 behind the arc in the second half to account for of his 20 points in the second half. As a team, the Cougars shot 66.7 percent from the field (20-for-30) in the second half. Ricky Hickman led the Spartans with 19 points. Kyle Hines chipped in 11 points, his 45th consecutive game in double figures. But the Cougars did a relatively good job of neutralizing Hines on the afternoon, as the junior from Sicklerville, NJ was 5-for-11 from the field on the afternoon. It was Hines’ lowest point during his current 45-game streak of or more points and just the fourth time during the streak he has been held to or fewer. The streak dates back to December 16, 2005. Lost in it all was Hines’ 1500th career point, making him the fifth player in school history to surpass the milestone. The 22-point loss was UNCG’s worst at Fleming Gym since February 17, 2004. The Spartans, after grabbing 15 offensive rebounds and 21 total boards in the first half, had just eight total rebounds in the second half. On the day, the Cougars held a 38-29 advantage on the glass, 21-8 in the second half. Both teams struggled to get on track early on. In the game’s first nine minutes, UNCG missed 14 of its first 18 from the field, while the Cougars turned the ball over six times. UNCG had just one field goal in a more than six-minute span as College of Charleston opened up a four-point advantage, 15-11. UNCG ran off seven straight, including a dominant sequence on the offensive glass with five shots – the first three by Hines, a fourth by Kendall Toney and then a fifth and final tip-in by Hines – to give the Spartans an 18-15 lead with 7:20 to play in the half. The Cougars went on a 9-2 run to get the lead back, 24-20, with 4:45 left in the half. However, David Lawrence’s tip-in that capped the run would be the Cougars’ last field goal of the first hald as the teams settled back into their sluggishness from there. It wasn’t until Dwayne Johnson knocked down a 24-footer from the right wing with 1.5 seconds left in the half that UNCG regained the lead, taking a 28-25 lead to the half. As sloppy as the first half was, the Cougars were rolling in the second half. College of Charleston made eight of its first nine from behind the three-point arc as a squad, with Draper leading the way. The Cougars put up 56 points in the second half – the most UNCG has given up this season by a wide margin. UNCG’s worst half this season had been the first half at Duke back on November 16 when it allowed 45. UNCG suffered a big blow at the 17:31 mark when Hines was called for his third foul on a charge. That was in the midst of a 12-2 run by the Cougars to open the second half to take their largest lead of the afternoon to that point at seven. The Cougars hit their first four three-pointers of the second half, three of them by Draper, as the lead grew to 43-34 with 15:45 to play. UNCG cut the lead to four a couple of times, but College of Charleston had an answer each time. The lead hit 10, 62-52, on a Draper drive down the lane with a little less than seven minutes to play. That began a 14-4 run that put the game out of reach for UNCG and sent the Spartans to their third straight loss.

G27: UNCG 73, UNC Wilmington 66

GREENSBORO, NC – UNC Greensboro scored 20 of the first 27 points of the second half to pull away from Western Carolina in the second half for a 79-68 win at Fleming Gym. After leading by 18 midway through the second half, UNCG managed just one field goal over a six-minute span. But UNCG managed to make its free throws for the second-straight game. The Spartans were 32-for-43 at the stripe to secure the win. Ricky Hickman led the way for UNCG with 19 points. He became UNCG’s all-time leader in free throws with 397, breaking the mark of 395 set by Courtney Eldridge. Western Carolina got a double-double from freshman Nick Aldridge with 28 points and 11 rebounds. Playing without their leading scorer Kyle Hines, who was serving a mandatory one-game suspension for his ejection from Monday’s game against Elon, the Spartans had to find themselves early on. Playing the final 15 minutes of Monday night’s game without Hines was one thing. Playing 40 minutes without arguably the top player in the Southern Conference was going to be a little different. But UNCG had as many field goal attempts as free throw attempts (43) and held Western Carolina to 37.7 percent shooting from the floor to earn the win and wrap up one of the coveted byes in the upcoming Southern Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament. UNCG also got 13 points each from junior Kevin Oleksiak and freshman Mikko Koivisto and 10 points from freshman Ben Stywall. Oleksiak, a native of Abington, PA, was in double figures for the fourth time in the last six games. It was Koivisto’s 11th game of or more points this season. After falling behind 7-2 to open the game, UNCG found a rhythm as it scored 10 straight points, capped off by a Ben Stywall dunk. The Spartans opened the lead up to nine a couple of times, including a 32-23 lead midway through the first half. The pace slowed somewhat from there as the teams combined for just five points in the next three minutes, but UNCG held its first double-digit lead of the game at 35-25. The Catamounts scored nine of the next to pull to within three, 37-34, capped off by Arnold Gore’s three-pointer with 4:11 to play in the first half. In fact, UNCG went nearly nine minutes between baskets, but Kendall Toney’s three-pointer with 36 left before intermission helped secure a 44-41 Spartan lead at the break. An 10-2 run to open the second half, including a pair of treys by Hickman, gave UNCG its largest to that point, 54-43, with 17 minutes to play. UNCG opened the lead up to as much as 18 before Western Carolina made a move to get back in it. A 14-4 run by the Catamounts cut the margin back to single-digits, 72-64, with 4:30 to play. The Catamounts had two chances to cut it to six, but could not capitalize from the foul line. With 2:49 to play, Aldridge missed a pair of free throws. The Spartans missed on their next possession, but Gore missed the front end of a one-and-one and UNCG went back to work on the clock. This time, Hickman dribbled around enough to get open for the driving lay-up to give UNCG a 10-point advantage and put away the victory.

GREENSBORO, NC – Ricky Hickman had a game-high 23 points, including the 1,500th of his career, as UNCG defeated UNC Wilmington, 73-66, in a BracketBusters series match-up at Fleming Gym. Hickman, a senior from Winston-Salem, NC, celebrated Senior Night by recording the 71st double-figure scoring game of his career. For the third consecutive game, Hickman, who had a roller coaster season shooting the basketball, got it done from the foul line. He was 11-for-14 from the line against UNCW, making him 37-for-46 at the charity stripe in the last three contests. Kyle Hines barely kept his streak of consecutive games with 10 or more points alive, and a good number of the 1,286 fans knew it when he dunked with just seconds left to extend it to 47 games. Hines scored 11 points, the first time in the streak that he has had to go down to the wire to extend it. Mikko Koivisto also chipped in with 11 points, including three three-pointers. Koivisto had a couple of big baskets in the second half when UNCW was cutting into UNCG’s lead. It was the fifth time in the last six games that the native of Vantaa, Finland has scored in double figures. Jeff Horowitz led UNCW with points in just minutes of action off the bench, including 4-of-5 from three-point range. Vladimir Kuljanin chipped in points and Todd Henley added points for the Seahawks. Montez Downey also had 10 points. Dement started his five graduating players for Senior Night, the first time in recent memory that two walk-ons were in the starting line-up. The combination of Greg Vlazny, Donald Moore, Bart Tooms, Matt Akinosho and Ricky Hickman started the game and held their own through the first substitutions. With the subs coming at the first media timeout at the 13:52 mark, UNCG held a 12-6 lead. From there, UNCG extended the lead to 20-8 after a Pete Brown thunder dunk, causing the Seahawks to call their second timeout with 9:58 still left in the opening half. And in that 12-point lead was the fact that Kyle Hines hadn’t scored yet. The Spartans led by as many as 17 in the first half but settled for a 41-31 lead at the break thanks to a 8-1 UNCW run over the final 2:31 of the half. The Spartans managed just one field goal in the first five minutes of the second half as the Seahawks closed to within six, 44-38. Consecutive field goals by Kendall Toney, one a three-pointer from the top of the key and the other a pull-up 14-footer, gave the Spartans an 11-point lead once again. UNCW responded, though, with back-to-back three-pointers by Jeff Horowitz to cut it back to five with 13:07 to play. The Spartans flirted with a double-digit lead a couple times after that, but couldn’t maintain it. Horowitz banked a three-pointer from the top of the key to close the Seahawks back to within five. After a Spartan miss, Downey hit a pull-up jumper in the lane to cut it to 59-56 with 7:09 to play. The lead was still three with three minutes to play when Hickman hit a jumper from the right side to give UNCG a 65-60 lead. Vladimir Kuljanian hit one of two from the line in UNCW’s next possession to get back to within four. After Hickman was called for a travel on a move to the basket, UNCW called a timeout in its halfcourt set with 1:59 to play. But the Seahawks had to settle for a three-point miss by Hundley as the shot clock expired. UNCG went to work on the clock, but lost the ball with 1:10 to play and UNCW called timeout when it grabbed the loose ball in the pile. Darryl Felder drove the lane, but had his shot blocked by Hines and Hendley fell down with the rebound for a traveling violation. UNCW had to foul and Hickman stepped to the line, hitting them both for his 1500 and 1501st career points and putting the game away. The only thing that was left in doubt was Hines streak, which began on December 19, 2005. That question was answered when Oleksiak grabbed took a quick in-bounds and found his big man streaking to the bucket for a dunk.

2006-07 Season Review

G26: UNCG 79, Western Carolina 68

GREENSBORO, NC – After losing its star player to an ejection, UNC Greensboro went on a 28-8 run to turn away backyard rival Elon, 86-73, to snap a three-game losing streak in Southern Conference men’s basketball action at Fleming Gym. Kyle Hines, who in his career had just one previous technical foul – way back in his freshman season - lost his cool with an official and drew three technical fouls and an ejection in the process with just over 15 minutes to play. After six Elon free throws by Chris Chalko, however, the Spartans ran off 28 of the next 36 points to give UNCG a 74-58 lead with 4:46 to play. “I want to go on the record and apologize for my behavior,” said a shaken Hines in the postgame press conference. “There is no excuse for what I did. I got frustrated and let my emotions get the best of me. I am embarrassed. I want to apologize to the fans, my teammates, the people at Elon, the officials, our entire University. There was no excuse for my behavior.” UNCG was led by Ricky Hickman’s 22 points, of which came at the foul line. Hickman was 15-of-at the foul line, tying the UNCG record for free throws made in a game and one short of the school record for free throws attempted in a contest. He was one of four players in double figures for UNCG. Mikko Koivisto added 13 points and Kevin Oleksiak chipped in 12 points. Hines also had points in 17 minutes of action, extending his streak to 46 consecutive games with 10 or more points. “I am really proud of the way my team responded after everything happened,” said UNCG coach Mike Dement. “Obviously, all of us in this room know Kyle Hines and that is not the way he typically behaves. However, our players as a group pulled together and played outstanding basketball after everything that happened.” Elon was led by LeVonn Jordan’s 22 points. Chalko finished with 18 points, including four three-pointers. Coming off of a 22-point loss at home on Saturday, one might think the Spartans would come out with a passion on Monday. That was the case early on against Elon. The Spartans ran off the first nine points of the game and held Elon to one field goal attempt in the first three minutes. It wasn’t until Spartan killer Chalko came off the bench during an Elon timeout and drilled a three-pointer at 16:54 that Elon got on the scoreboard. But that was the spark that the Phoenix need as they scored 13 of the next 18 points to pull within one, capped off by another three-pointer by Chalko. Elon pulled ahead briefly at 17-15, but UNCG went on a 12-4 run to re-open its nine-point advantage. Hines scored six of the 12, his first six points of the night, as UNCG opened up a 33-24 lead with a little over five minutes left in the first half. The lead got as large as 12 before the Spartans headed into intermission with a 43-35 lead. Elon’s Scott Grable scored the first five points of the second half, however, to pull the Phoenix to within three and force UNCG to call a quick timeout to get things back in order. But Brett James pulled Elon to within a point to cap off the quick 7-0 burst that made it 43-42. Things got crazy with 15:17 to play in the second half, though. Hines thought he was fouled on a jumper from the right baseline and let the official know it, drawing a technical foul. As he went by the official reporting the technical foul, Hines drew a second technical and then a third as he went out the door to the locker room. Chalko knocked down all six free throws to give Elon a 50-46 lead. But UNCG wasn’t about to fold without its star player. The Spartans went on a 28-8 run, using five three-pointers in the surge toopen up a 16-point lead. The Spartans hit 9-of-10 from the foul line in the final two minutes to put the game away.

2006-07 Season Review

G28: Appalachian State 80, UNCG 66

G29: UNCG 68, Chattanooga 61

G30: Furman 73, UNCG 71 (SoCon Tourney)

BOONE, NC – Hampered by 26 turnovers, UNCG lost at Appalachian State, 80-66, in Southern Conference action at the Holmes Center. D.J. Thompson celebrated his Senior Night by leading the Mountaineers with 32 points, one shy of his career-high. It was his eighth 20-point game of the season and the 29th of his career. He knocked down 12-of-23 from the floor, including 6-of-14 from three-point range. Junior forward Kyle Hines had 18 points and 10 rebounds, his 48th consecutive game in double figures to extend his school record streak. He passed Scott Hartzell for third on the career scoring list and now has 1,540 points. It was also his 10th double-double this season, one shy of his own single-season record set last year, and the 31st of his career. He also recorded six blocks. Freshman Mikko Koivisto recorded his sixth game of or more points in the last seven outings with 16 points. Appalchian State scored the first seven points of the second half to open up its largest lead of the night, 41-32. The lead grew to 14 with 15:26 to play, 52-38, on seven straight points by Thompson. Shortly thereafter, UNCG went past the 20-turnover mark for the night. The Spartans got to within eight at 60-52, but Appalachian State went on a 15-2 run to blow the game wide open. Neither team really got on track early on and it resulted in a couple of mini-runs. The Spartans had six turnovers in the game’s first six minutes, while Appalachian State, the best shooting team in the SoCon at 48.4 percent from the floor, missed 14 of their first 19 to open the contest. The Mountaineers scored the game’s first six points to force Dement to call a quick timeout to settle his troops. UNCG responded to the early timeout with the next six points. Appalachian State scored five straight, before UNCG scored nine in a row to take its first lead of the game, 15-11. But the teams started to get into a back-and-forth contest from there. Neither team led by four the remainder of the half. Thompson’s off-balance shot from 12 feet just before the buzzer gave the Mountaineers a 34-32 lead at the break.

CHATTANOOGA, TN – A 19-2 run by UNC Greensboro to open the second half lifted the Spartans over Chattanooga, 68-61, at McKenzie Arena in the regular season finale for both teams. The win was UNCG’s first over the Mocs on their home floor since February 12, 2000 and gave the Spartans a 12-6 mark in conference play, their highest league win total since 1994-95. The win also snapped a three-game road losing streak and assured UNCG of a winning season. Kyle Hines led a balanced UNCG attack with 18 points, his 49t h consecutive game scoring in double figures. Mikko Koivisto chipped in with 11 points, his seventh time in double figures in the last eight games. Ricky Hickman also added points. UNCG shot 10-for-17 from the floor in the second half, including 7-of-13 from three-point range. Five different Spartans had a three-pointer in the game and all had multiple treys for the game. Chattanooga was led by Casey Long’s 11 points and Ricky Hood’s 10 points. The game was a grinder at the start. Both teams got after it defensively right from the outset and the scoreboard showed it. Six minutes into the game, UNCG held a slim 7-6 advantage. But consecutive three-pointers by Kendall Toney and Ricky Hickman gave UNCG a seven-point lead. UNCG held onto the lead for most of the first half, although it never got to be more than seven. Chattanooga regained the lead, however, with 34.6 seconds remaining in the first half when Marcus Watts converted a conventional three-point lead to give the Mocs a 28-26 lead. But Kendall Toney’s three-pointer with 2.7 seconds left gave UNCG a 29-28 lead at the intermission. But the Spartans went on a 19-2 run over the first 7:45 of the second half to open up their first double-digit lead of the night, 48-30. Chattanooga went 6:21 between field goals as UNCG blew the game wide-open. The Mocs made a late run with three-pointers. Ricky Hood’s three-pointer with 1:52 to play cut the deficit to 12 at 64-52. The Mocs would cut it to seven in the closing seconds as UNCG did not record a field goal over the final 3:06. But it was not enough to complete a comeback.

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – UNC Greensboro went 5:36 between baskets and Furman went on a 20-4 run in the process to defeat UNC Greensboro, 73-71, in the quarterfinal round of the 2007 Southern Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament. The Spartans nearly pulled off a miracle comeback. Trailing by 12 with 4:36 to play, UNCG rallied to within two and had the ball with 2.2 seconds left But the lengthof-the-court pass was batted around and time expired without a shot. Furman, which had lost the last three meetings to UNCG, including two in the regular season this year, knocked down 7-for-10 from the line in the final 56 seconds. It was two misses with just five seconds left, however, that gave UNCG one last chance. Kyle Hines led UNCG (16-14) with 33 points and nine rebounds, the most points ever scored by a Spartan in a Southern Conference Tournament game. He moved into second place on the school’s career scoring list, passing James Maye. Ricky Hickman added 20 points in his final game in a Spartan uniform. He finished his career fourth on the school’s career scoring list with 1,544 points after recording his seventh straight game in double figures and his 28th career 20-point game. The Spartans were hampered by a tough shooting night from the perimeter. UNCG made just 4-of-22 from behind the three-point arc and no one made multiple treys. “It is hard to slow Hines down,” said Furman coach Jeff Jackson. “Even with the double team, he’s impossible to shut down. You can’t really stop him, only hope to contain him.” Furman got 18 points from Robby Bostain and 16 from Moussa Diagne. Diagne also had nine rebounds, including five on the offensive glass. Several times down the stretch, it was Diagne who kept Furman going with putback buckets. The Paladins scored the first seven points of the contest on their way to a quick 9-1 lead. UNCG struggled to get on track at the outset, missing nine of its first 12 from the field. A three-pointer by Robbie Bostain from the right corner gave Furman a 22-10 lead with 11:44 remaining before half. The Spartans, however, responded with a 16-2 run – 10 of them from Hines – that was partially sparked by UNCG switching to a half-court trap. The run led to UNCG’s first lead of the game, 26-24. In fact, Hines and Hickman scored 28 of UNCG’s first 30 points – that after having scored the last 40 points in UNCG’s win over Furman in their last meeting January 27, including all 36 in the second half. Hines finished the first half with 20 points, the second time this season that he has scored 20 in the opening half, as UNCG took a 32-30 lead into the intermission. But Hines didn’t score another field goal for 12 minutes and the game stayed tight well into the second half. UNCG went nearly six minutes between baskets and Furman turned a four-point deficit into a four-point lead. Moussa Diagne’s three-pointer from the left corner gave Furman a 48-44 lead with 9:29 to play. That lead extended to 58-48 lead, Furman’s first double-digit advantage of the day with 5:29 to play. Hickman pulled the Spartans back in it with a pair of three-point plays. A threepoint field goal and an old-fashioned three-point play cut an 11-point Furman lead to five with 2:52 to play, 62-57. UNCG pulled to within three with two free throws by Hines, but consecutive putbacks by Furman’s Diagne gave the Paladins a seven-point advantage with 1:15 to play. Dwayne Johnson knocked down a trey to cut it back to four with 56 seconds to play. Gerad Punch two at the line to push the margin back to six, but Hines got that back with a lay-up with 37 seconds left. Bostain made one of two at the line with 33 seconds to go, but Kendall Toney knocked down a 21-footer from the top of the arc to make it 69-67 with 25 seconds left. After Punch knocked down two more at the line, Hines got it back to two again with 12 seconds left. Tony Anderson then knocked down a pair, but Hickman drove to the basket with six seconds left to offset it and make it a two-point game again. Eric Webb, however, missed two from the line and left the door open ever so slightly. But Ben Stywall’s long pass was batted about by Hines and Furman’s Stanley Jones and time expired before Hines could gain control.

The Southern Conference

The Southern Conference

The Southern Conference, which began its 87th season of intercollegiate competition in 2007, is a national leader 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 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. The Southern Conference has also excelled as the premier Football Championship Subdivision conference. Southern Conference member Appalachian State has won the last two Football Championship Subdivision titles. 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. 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 conference institutions. The Southern Conference office is located in the historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. 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 and offices as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents.

25th Anniversary of Women’s Championships

The Southern Conference will celebrate 25 years of women’s championships in 2007-08. A year-long celebration of women’s sports will highlight student-athletes, coaches and teams. Commissioner Ken Germann spearheaded the Southern Conference’s expansion to include women’s athletics. The Germann Cup, named in honor of the former commissioner, annually recognizes the top women’s athletics programs in the conference. From its humble beginnings, women’s athletics have become an integral part of the Southern Conference and its success. The league crowns champions in nine women’s sports including cross country, soccer, volleyball, indoor track & field, basketball, tennis, golf, outdoor track & field and softball.

Membership History

The Southern Conference was formed on February 25, 1921 at a meeting in Atlanta, Ga. as 14 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, LSU, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane and Vanderbilt - joined the fold. A year later, the University of the South joined the ranks. VMI became a member in 1925 and Duke was added 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 from 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 came about in 1953 when Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest 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 local rivals. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that spans four Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. On July 1, 2008, Samford will officially join the league, brining membership of the conference to 12.

Leadership

John Iamarino was officially named commissioner of the conference on January 2, 2006. Previously, Iamarino served as commissioner of the Northeast Conference. In nine years with the New Jersey-based league, Iamarino promoted the conference through an ambitious agenda which improved competition, upgraded compliance-related matters and increased the marketing and brand awareness of the conference and its member institutions. 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. In 1987, he was succeeded by Dave Hart who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, N.C. to Asheville, N.C. 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. Danny Morrison headed the conference from 20012005 and orchestrated the league’s move from Asheville, N.C. to historic Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. Under Morrison’s leadership, the conference increased its marketing and promotional efforts.

Championship 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. The Southern Conference began sponsoring women’s sports during the 1983-84 season. That year, league championships were held in volleyball, basketball and tennis. 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 & field, tennis, golf and softball.

Basketball

Men’s basketball was the first sport in which the conference produced a championship. The league tournament is the nation’s oldest, with the inaugural championship held in Atlanta in 1922. Not only was the Southern Conference Tournament the first of its kind, the league also helped change the face of college basketball. In 1980, the league began a seasonlong experiment with a 22-foot three-point field goal with the approval of the NCAA Rules Committee. Ronnie Carr of Western Carolina made the first three-point field goal in college basketball history in a game against Middle Tennessee State on Nov. 29, 1980. Another college basketball tradition that originated in the SoCon is the traditional cutting of the nets by the winning team. According to USA Today, the practice of net cutting originated in 1947 with North Carolina State head coach Everett Case. As a first-year head coach, Case led the Wolfpack to the SoCon Tournament title. To commemorate the event, Case celebrated by claiming the nets as a souvenir of the win. Basketball coaching legend Red Auerbach gives credit to former George Washington coach Bill Reinhart, who coached in the SoCon for nearly 30 years, as one of the originators of the modern fast-break. West Virginia’s 10 tournament championships are still the most in league history. The Mountaineers were led by the incomparable Jerry West from 1958 through ’60. West, a two-time All-America selection, spurred West Virginia to the Final Four in 1959. The Mountaineers lost in the championship game that season to California, 71-70, but West earned Final Four Most Valuable Player honors. West was a three-time Southern Conference tournament MVP, a twotime league regular season MVP, and was twice named the conference’s Athlete of the Year. He went on to a spectacular career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1979. He was a 14time NBA All-Star while with the Lakers. It is West’s silhouette that comprises the NBA’s globally recognized logo. Frank Selvy set the NCAA record for points in a game while at Furman. As a Paladin senior on Feb. 13, 1954, Selvy scored 100 points in a game against Newberry, a record that still stands. Selvy was the Southern Conference Most Valuable Player in 1953 and 1954 and the league’s Athlete of the Year in 1954. He went on to a 10-year career in the NBA. Rod Hundley was another West Virginia star during the 1950s. “Hot Rod” made a name for himself as one of the most spectacular players to tour the league during his era. Hundley averaged 24.5 points per game in his three seasons as a Mountaineer and was an all-conference and all-tournament performer in each of those three years. He was the Southern Conference Most Valuable Player and Athlete-of-the-Year as a senior in 1957. He was the first player selected in the 1957 NBA draft and enjoyed a sixyear career in that league. East Tennessee State’s Keith “Mister” Jennings made his mark on the college basketball world in the early 1990s. Despite standing less than six feet tall, Jennings was a twotime all-conference choice and the league’s Player of the Year and Athlete of the Year in 1991. Jennings played with the Golden State Warriors of the NBA. More recently, Western Carolina’s Kevin Martin was a first round pick of the Sacramento Kings in 2004. Martin was second in the nation in scoring as a junior at 24.9

In baseball, Wake Forest advanced to the championship game of the NCAA College World Series in 1949. Demon Deacon second baseman Charles Teague was named the CWS Most Valuable Player. The Citadel made history in 1990 by becoming the first military school to make an appearance at the College World Series. The Bulldogs were joined that season at the CWS by current conference member Georgia Southern. One of the Southern Conference’s more famous baseball alums is Duke’s Dick Groat. The Blue Devil shortstop, who was also a basketball standout, was the conference’s Athlete of the Year in 1951 and 1952. He went on to a 14year career in the major leagues. In 1960, he was named

Coaches and Administrators

The Southern Conference has also been a breeding ground for some of college athletics’ most recognized coaches and administrators. Legendary basketball coaches Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Everett Case of North Carolina State both worked the sidelines in the Southern Conference. Rupp

guided the Wildcats to a 30-5 mark during the 1931 and 1932 seasons. Yet, for all his coaching accomplishments, Rupp never led Kentucky to a Southern Conference tournament championship. Case mentored the Wolfpack to six consecutive Southern Conference Tournament championships from 1947 through 1952. Lefty Driesell coached Davidson to three Southern Conference Tournament championships in 1966, 1968 and 1969. Driesell also won the league’s Coach of the Year award four straight times from 1963 through 1966. Former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins earned league Coach of the Year honors three times in the late ’70s and early ’80s while at Appalachian State and is in his first season as head coach at the College of Charleston. Terry Holland saw his basketball coaching career take off at Davidson when he returned to his alma mater in 1970. Holland was honored as the Southern Conference Coach of the Year for three consecutive seasons from 1970-72 and led the Wildcats to the conference tournament title and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 1970. J. Dallas Shirley, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, spent 21 years as the assistant to the commissioner and supervisor of officials in the Southern Conference. He also served as president of the International Association Basketball Officials and the United States Olympic Basketball Committee. Even the legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant got his coaching start in the Southern Conference as he guided the Maryland Terrapins in 1945. A legendary Southern Conference football coach is the late Frank Howard of Clemson, who guided the Tigers as a league member from 1940-52. The incomparable Howard won 69 Southern Conference games which still ranks tied for fourth on the league’s alltime coaching victories list. The Southern Conference has been represented on the sidelines at five Super Bowls in recent years. Bobby Ross, who piloted the San Diego Chargers to the 1996 Super Bowl, was the head coach at The Citadel from 1973-77. Former Buffalo Bills head coach Marv Levy directed William & Mary from 1964-68. He was succeeded at William & Mary by Lou Holtz. William & Mary competed in the Southern Conference from 1936-77.

the National League MVP after he led the league in batting with a .325 average for the World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. Among Southern Conference alums to grace Major League Baseball fields have been Atlee Hammaker (East Tennessee State), Jeff Montgomery (Marshall) and Mike Ramsey (Appalachian State). Other SoCon players to go on to a career in the major leagues include Angels third baseman Dallas McPherson (The Citadel), pitchers Britt Reames (The Citadel) and Ryan Glynn (VMI) who both pitched with Oakland in 2005 and Furman’s Tom Mastny, a pitcher with the Cleveland Indians (2007). Arnold Palmer, perhaps the most famous golfer to have ever lived, competed under the Southern Conference banner as a collegian at Wake Forest. He took medalist honors at the Southern Conference Tournament in 1948 and 1949 and was the tournament’s runner-up in 1950. Palmer was the medalist at the NCAA Golf Championships in 1949 and 1950. He went on to become one of the most accomplished golfers to play on the professional tour. Palmer won 60 tournaments while competing on the PGA Tour and has added 10 more victories as a member of the Senior PGA Tour. He has also won eight major championships - four Masters, two British Opens, one U.S. Open and one U.S. Amateur. Women’s sports are relatively young in the league’s history. In 2007-08, the Southern Conference will be celebrating its 25th Anniversary of women’s championship. Furman golfer Dottie Pepper was named the Southern Conference Women’s Athlete of the Decade in conjunction with that event. Appalachian State’s Mary Jayne Harrelson won the NCAA Outdoor title at 1500 meters in 1999 and 2001. Furman’s Brandi Jackson won the NCAA Women’s Golf East Regional in the spring of 2003.

points per game before leaving a year early for the NBA. Besides West Virginia’s team in 1959, the Southern Conference has been represented in the Final Four on two other occasions. North Carolina advanced to the NCAA championship game in 1943 before falling 43-40 to Oklahoma State. North Carolina State finished third in the tournament in 1950. Women’s basketball competition began in the Southern Conference in 1983-84 with seven teams. In the sport’s history, seven schools have won the league’s tournament at least once with Chattanooga winning 10 and Appalachian State owning six titles. UNC Greensboro won the 1998 tournament as head coach Lynne Agee became the first coach to take a team to the NCAA Tournament in all three Divisions - I, II and III. In 2001, Chattanooga head coach Wes Moore became the first coach in NCAA history to take three different teams to the NCAA Tournament in all three Divisions. Since 1984, seven different teams have claimed at least a share of the regular season crown. Chattanooga has the most overall titles with 12, six of them shared. Chattanooga owns the most outright championships with seven. Only three players have won the conference Player of the Year award twice: East Tennessee State’s DeShawne Blocker in 1992-93 and 1994-95; Furman’s Jackie Smith, 1997-98 and 1998-99; and Chattanooga’s Damita Bullock, who won the award in 2000 and 2001.

Seven-foot center Jason Collins scored 20 of his game-high 25 points in the first half to held Stanford to an 8960 win over UNCG in the First round of the NCAA West Regional. 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 half. 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.”

In 2005, UNCG ranked #2 nationally by “The Princeton Review” among best bargain public universities. For the last eight years, UNCG has been ranked in The Princeton Review’s “Best Colleges” guide. UNCG, with a campus currently covering 210 acres, was founded in 1892, making this the 115th year of its existence. In the Fall of 2005, UNCG had a record enrollment of 16,060, including more than 12,000 undergraduates. Just five years earlier, the total enrollment at UNCG was less than 13,000. The average SAT score for enrolled freshman in 2007 was 1039, and 53 percent of the freshman class had a high school GPA of 3.5 or better. In 2006, UNCG launched the Lloyd International Honors College.

UNCG is located just two hours from the Appalachian Mountains or three hours from the Carolina beaches. The Piedmont Triad is home to more than a million people, including 240,955 in Greensboro.

With a record number of 16,386 students enrolled for Fall 2007, 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 by The Carnegie Foundation as a Research University with High Research Activity. The University was established in 1891 and became coeducational in 1963. The 210-acre campus is located one mile from the center of Greensboro, a city of 240,995. The Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point Metropolitan Statistical Area, commonly known as “The Triad” has a population of approximately 1.5 million.

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 more than any other individual, the University owes its foundation to him. In the past century the University’s mission has evolved, 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 was 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 beginning with 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 Phi Beta Kappa was installed. On February 17, 1956 Epsilon Chapter of North Carolina was installed as an extension of the UNC-Chapel Hill chapter. In 2006, the chapter was voted the Best in the Nation among public universities by the national society. UNCG is one of only six higher education institutions in the state with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. 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 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 163 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. www.uncgspartans.com

It marked the sixth-straight UNCG appeared in the guide, and its highestever 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 (Princeton Review and Consumer’s Digest). 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-state tuition and room and board rates for UNCG are just over $10,000 per year, while out-ofstate 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 2007-08 UNCG Men’s Basketball Media Guide • 91

In addition, 53 percent of the incoming freshman class had a high school GPA of 3.5 or higher (on a 4.0 scale). The University also enrolled 1,368 new transfer students. From those students first enrolled in the fall of 2005, 76 percent returned in the fall of 2006. Among the more than 16,300 students at UNCG, 31 percent of the student body lives in on-campus housing. 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 63 master’s degrees and 23 doctoral degrees offered. Among the more than 1,000 members of the faculty, nearly three-fourths are full-time. Nearly 80 percent of the faculty hold doctorates or other terminal degrees.

At the end of each of the last three academic years, more than 40% of UNCG student-athletes held a grade-pointaverage of 3.0 or better. A record 54 percent of UNCG’s studentathletes made the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll (3.0 GPA in a semester) in the Spring 2007 semester. This past September, UNCG was listed in Princeton Review’s “Best 366 Colleges,” a distinctioned achieved by only 15 percent of the nation’s fouryear colleges. Approximately 120,000 students were surveyed nationwide, rating their individual schools in a variety of categories. In August 2005, The Princeton Review

UNCG’s brand new $16.9 million Moore Hall for Humanities and Research Administration, which opened last year, sits on Spring Garden St. in the heart of campus. which offers informal, intramural and club sports, as well as an extensive outdoor adventure program. The more than 80 buildings on the campus reflect the 115year history of the University. There are many new features, including a new, $26 million music building which opened in August 1999, and a total renovation of the Elliott University Center, which was completed in 2003. UNCG received approximately $166 million from the state for construction and renovation, based on voter approval of the North Carolina Higher Education Bonds. The $17.6 million Maud Gatewood Studio Arts Building and the $16.9 million Moore Humanities and Research Administration Building are the centerpieces of the project, along with the $40 million Science Building, which was opened in 2003. In addition, the 400-student Spring Garden Apartments residence hall was put into use during the 2006-07 academic year. Other recent renovation projects include the Gove Student Health Center, Aycock Auditorium and Petty, Brown and McNutt buildings, as well as a connector between Jackson Library and Elliott University Center. The many construction projects on campus show the growth of the university, while at the same time attempting to preserve many of the structures that have made the institution what it is today. In the Fall of 2004, the University launched the Students First Campaign, which has a fundraising goal of $100 million. The Students First Campaign will set aside $52 million for scholarships to make UNCG a first-choice school for top high school students from North Carolina and elsewhere. Remaining funds will also be used for endowments that will create new professorships, expand university facilities and public services. UNCG expects to meet its goal by the year 2009. The Second Century Campaign for UNCG, which concluded Dec. 31, 1998, raised $55.4 million over a five-year span to create 77 new scholarship and fellowship funds, as well as funds for research, programs and acquisitions. 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).

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro is one of the fastest growing universities around. With a record 16,300 students enrolled, including approximately 11,500 full-time undergraduates, the university has positioned itself for continued growth and success as the 21st century evolves. Despite record numbers of students, the student/faculty ratio is still just 17:1. Today’s UNCG includes:

A special characteristic of the IHC is its emphasis on international and global perspectives. In today’s world, international and global perspectives are a necessary part of a complete university education. At IHC, these perspectives are not isolated in a single course or two. Instead, students can find those perspectives throughout the College’s programs – in most of its courses, in its honors residence hall, and in a variety of extra- and co-curricular activities. For honors students who study abroad at one of UNCG’s partner universities, a travel fund is available. Finally, the IHC operates on the principle that while courses are important, its students’ education is too important to be limited to the classroom. It offers its students a variety of special activities both at UNCG and abroad – an honor residence hall, special advising, student symposia, guest lectures and performances, informal coffees, internships and enhanced study abroad experiences. www.uncgspartans.com

University 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 maintained 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 instituted 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 again exceeded 16,000 last year, 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 the Lloyd International Honors College, 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 $100 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. 94 • 2007-08 UNCG Men’s Basketball Media Guide

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. This academic year, Bobb will serve on four Southern Conference committees, serving on the Committee on Committees, Constitution and By-Laws, Audit Committee and the Men’s Soccer Sport Committee, of which he is the chair. On campus, Bobb is a member of the Chancellor’s Executive Staff and has been part of many governing bodies both inside and outside of athletics during his tenure. He is one of the original members of the Greensboro Sports Commission, having served in the body since 1989. He has also been a member of the Greensboro Sports Council since 1983. He has presented twice each to the NCAA Convention and the NACDA Convention. UNCG student-athletes have received numerous awards. In 1984, he established the Chancellor’s Scholar-Athlete Award to honor the student-athlete(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. 2007-08 UNCG Men’s Basketball Media Guide • 95

UNCG Administration

In his 25th 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 fulltime 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. Earlier this summer, he was named to NACDA’s NCAA Division I-AAA Executive Committee as an at-large member. When he arrived in July 1983, there were eight teams competing on the Division III level. 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. During his tenure, he has watched over the construction or renovation of all of the Spartans’ athletic venues. He began that process by serving on the committee that built Fleming Gymnasium and the HHP Building in 1989. He then moved onto the transformation of Campus Field in 1991 into what is today UNCG Soccer Stadium – one of the premier venues in all of college soccer. In 1999, he oversaw the construction of the UNCG Baseball Stadium and the renovation and lighting of the UNCG Tennis Courts. Most recently, he added to the list the transformation of UNCG’s softball facility to become a top-of-the-line stadium venue, and the reconfiguration of seating in Fleming Gym, which added chairback seating on both sides and additional stands under one of the baskets. 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 three academic years, more than 40 percent of UNCG’s student-athletes earned a 3.0 GPA or better. Last spring, 52 percent of student-athletes earned at least a 3.0 GPA in the semester, equalling the record set the previous spring. As of June 2007, nearly half (46 percent) of UNCG’s 225 student-athletes held cumulative GPAs of 3.0 or better. 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. Bobb was also a member of the Olympic Torch run committee in Greensboro for the 1996 Games. During his tenure, UNCG teams have won 36 conference tournament titles, 27 as an NCAA Division I member. They have also won 65 conference regular season titles, 39 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. From 1995-2000, he served on the Certification Team for four such events. Most recently, Bobb served on the

UNCG Athletic History

The overnight success of the UNCG athletics program has been some 60 years in the making. This year marks the 40-year anniversary of the official formation of UNCG’s Intercollegiate Athletics Department. The success story however, began while UNCG was still the Women’s College of the University of North Carolina and intercollegiate competition for women was still in its infancy.

1940s

Men’s soccer player Eddie Radwanski, the first two-time All-American in the program’s history, was the first pick in the Major Indoor Soccer League draft in 1985. Under Michael Parker’s direction, the men’s soccer team became the first in NCAA history to win three consecutive national championships, in 1985, 1986 and 1987.

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.

In February of 1987, the University announced the elevation of the athletic program from Division III to Division I, an unprecedented move in NCAA history.

1950s

The women’s basketball team finished third in the nation after entering the NCAA Tournament unranked in 1988.

Women’s College hosted the 10th national golf tournament in 1954 at 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 Division II era began in 1988-89 and women’s soccer was added to the program. The team was ranked No. 13 nationally before ever playing a game. The men’s soccer team was runner-up in the 1989 Division II national tournament and Jason Haupt led all divisions in scoring.

1990s

The men’s and women’s soccer team were ranked No. 1 nationally in Division II at the same time in 1990.

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 athletics 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).

T h e

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.
