The Terriers are now 8-6 while the Spartans sit at 7-7. A couple defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Wofford has allowed their opponents to shoot 45.30% from the floor on average, which is the 51st highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. UNCG's defense has more to brag about, as they they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 39%, which places them 33rd in college basketball. Maybe that strength will give UNCG the oomph they need to beat the odds.
