Samford vs. UNCG (MBB) - 02/07/2019

ESPN has crunched their numbers... and has concluded that UNCG has an 85.2% chance of winning. The only reason I can see this is because of UNCG's record, 20-3 (9-1), vs Samford's, 14-10(4-7). While I understand this, looking at other statistics illustrates another story.

These stats show that the Dogs, if focused, can pullout a W. Dogs on average make more field goals, rebounds, points per game, etc. Any thoughts?

The records are pretty compelling, and the fact that they beat us at the PHC by outscoring us by 20 points in the 2nd half is pretty indicative that UNCG should be the big favorite. Hoping for the upset of course.

SU Dog - great points that I have not thought about. We saw a completely different team on Saturday against WCU, than against ETSU. I heard Coach say that a good bit of starters were out with the flu in weeks prior, causing missed practices, etc.

Anyways, hoping for a SU win - and a team that finishes strong. Thanks for the welcome greeting - and GO DOGS!
