Both of the these teams are playing each other as part of the EA Sports Maui Invitational . Hoyas (1-0) look to keep their early season swag coming off of a big 83-54 win over visiting Mid-Atlantic Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) Savannah State U Tigers (0-1). UNC Greensboro Spartans (0-1) are (0-4) against Big East Conference opponents with three losses comin from the West Virginia Mountaineers and one loss coming from the South Florida U Bulls. The Spartans are coming off a 92-63 loss to Tennessee. This is a good the Hoyas should not take playing the Spartans for granted. You learn something new for every great team you play against - you try to be greater the next time.
This will be the Spartans fifth game versus a Big East opponent."The last two years we've played one of the top non-conference schedules in the country, which has helped to enhance our program's profile. This year is no different," said Spartan Coach Dement. We intend for these games to ultimately help prepare us for success in Southern Conference play."
Junior G Korey Van Dussen (12.0) leads his team in scoring. Junior G Derrell (8 rebs.) leads his team in rebounding. The Hoyas are lead in scoring by senior C Henry Sims (19 pts.), assist leaders are both Sims and Nate Lubick (5 assists). Top two rebounders for the Hoyas are freshman F Otto Port (8) and sophomore F Nate Lubick (7).
Team defense was the key for the Hoyas in their last outing on the homefront. Their "intensity" level was at a very high level. Communication and point communication are major keys on both ends of the court.
