All eyes are on Chapel Hill, Greenville, Clemson, Conway, Raleigh, and Athens this weekend. At best, the two states could combine for six teams in the Super Regionals. Furthermore, all 6 of those teams could potentially move on to the College World Series since none would have to play one another in the Super Regional. Let’s see how these regionals turnout first. Enjoy the games.

NC College Basketball Week 5 Review

NC College Basketball Week 5 Review

After a crazy up and down week for many teams in our power rankings. An end to the college semester and a relatively quiet week of games made for limited movement for a lot of our NC teams. Check out the recap of the games that were played this week: NC College Basketball Week 5 Review.

Appalachian State (5-6)

App State came out flat against Akron. The Mountaineers were only down nine at the half but ultimately fell 94-89. The only two players to add production for ASU were Griffin Kinney with 28 points and star guard Ronshad Shabazz with 26. Akron had the advantage on the glass and in the assist column and overall moved the ball better as a whole. Appalachian State just couldn’t make enough plays to get a win on the road.

Campbell (4-5)

After an up and down start, Campbell heads into the week with no games. Star guard Chris Clemons has been limited in action this year only appearing in six games. Hopefully, this “bye” week is able to get him ready to go. With emerging scorers in Burk and Whitfield, the Camels could be a threat with Clemons ready to play. Look for Campbell to come out ready against Citadel in the upcoming week’s first contest.

Davidson (4-3)

The Wildcats did not have a game on the schedule for the week. Coming off an easy win against VMI let’s see if Davidson uses its week of preparation to try and steal a big road win in a test against Virginia next week.

#4 Duke (11-1)

Down goes Duke. On the road in an ACC contest against hot-shooting Boston College, the Devils were upset 84-89. Coach K’s club had a clear advantage inside. However, in the second half, the Devils decided to get into a shooting contest with the Eagles. Bagley had his typical double-double day even though he wasn’t featured in the second half. Gary Trent Jr showed up for Duke netting 25 including 6 three-pointers. In my analysis, the loss falls on Grayson Allen. The senior guard ended up with 14 points on an ugly 5/20 shooting (1/9 3PA). 

Look for Duke to get some of their defensive struggles under control with a 10-day break till their next game.

East Carolina (5-4)

ECU is riding a 3-game win streak into exam week. Ever since the departure of Coach Lebo, the Pirates have been rolling. Up next, in-state rival UNC-Charlotte. It’s time to find out if the Pirates are going to make some noise in the American this year.

Elon (6-4)

The Phoenix got demolished on the road 75-44 against UNC Greensboro. There is no need to get into player stats for this one. Elon had no player contribute anything of significance. As a team, they shot 34% from the field, 14% from 3 and only attempted seven free throws.

High Point (4-5)

High Point blew out local beating stick Toccoa Falls 110-39. No starter accounted for more than 21 points, However, a trio off the bench all had over 14 points each in extended playing time. Credit Cliff Thomas Jr with 16, Jamal Wright with 15 points 9 assists, and Dexter Gooding with 14 points.

Gardner Webb (3-8)

Gardner-Webb had a rough week. You can thank their schedule for that. The calendar handed the Bulldogs a couple of Power 5 beatdowns. One by Auburn (80-55) and the other by Maryland (82-60). David Efianayi was the leading scorer against Auburn scoring 16 points. Gardner Webb shot 35% from the floor and committed 16 turnovers. That spells disaster against any team. The tandem of DJ Laster 21 points and David Efianayi with 18 were the only contributors against Maryland. No one else could muster much offensively. Another poor shooting night 38% paired 16 turnovers was a recipe for disaster against Maryland.

NC A&T (5-4)

Though they came in as big underdogs, the Aggies kept it respectable against Georgetown. However, they eventually fell 83-74 to the Hoyas. A sluggish start was too much for A&T to overcome, they only scored 26 points in the first half. Credit bench man Milik Gantz with 21 points contributing nicely. Femi Olujobi had a productive game, per usual, with 18 points and 8 rebounds. Ultimately, the Aggies needed better three-point shooting (5/18 3PA).

UNC Asheville (6-4)

In their lone game of the week, Asheville thumped Milligan 97-60. All you need to know about the game: Milligan had 17 points at halftime. Asheville had six scorers in double figures with production coming from everywhere. Raekwon Miller had a nice game with 19 points and 10 rebounds off the bench.

North Carolina Central (4-8)

Despite Raasean Davis’ 21 points and eight rebounds, the Eagles couldn’t shoot with George Mason and fell 65-77. In the contest, the Patriots outshot Central 52.7%-38.6%. Aside from Davis, the only other Eagle in double figures was Pablo Rivas with 13 points of the bench.

Later in the week, NC Central traveled cross-country to face Grand Canyon University. The Eagles performed much better as a unit but still lost 64-59. Davis and Rivas paced the Eagles again with 16 and 13 points, respectively. Reginald Gardner Jr. (11 points) and Alston Jones (10 points) played well in supporting roles.

#9 North Carolina (9-1)

The #11 team in the nation made quick work of Western Carolina by defeating the Catamounts 104-61. Double-double machine Luke Maye kept his streak tallying 12 points and 12 rebounds. Freshman guard, Jalek Felton had a good showing off the bench with 15 points and 5 assists in limited action.

Roy Williams’ team now has a nice break between games. Next, Carolina will travel to ranked Tennessee for a bout with the Vols. Let’s see if the young Heels can put together a good week of preparation and beat a solid Vols team on the road.

UNC Charlotte (3-6)

It was another lackluster showing for the 49ers against Chattanooga, 50-64. Harold Price had a nice game with 15 points. Star guard Jon Davis was kept in-check throughout most of the game (5 points on 2/9 shooting). To our best estimation, Davis’ quiet night is the ultimate reason the 49ers couldn’t get a win. The Niners also committed 20 turnovers.

UNC Greensboro (6-3)

Greensboro dominated Elon 75-44 in their only game of the week. Wes Miller’s team had a balanced attack in the win. The Spartans shot 53.4% from the floor compared to a meager 34.7% from Elon. Marvin Smith and Isaiah Miller led the way for UNCG. Both scored 12 points. No other Spartan was in double-figures.

NC State (8-2)

The Wolfpack made easy work at home against UMKC 88-69. NC State had four starters in double-figures. Kevin Keatts’ team received solid efforts from Torin Dorn (22 points), Markell Johnson (17), Braxton Beverly (12), and Allerik Freeman (10). The Pack dominated the game on the glass outrebounding UMKC 52-35. Dorn led the attack on the backboards with 17 rebounds.

UNC Wilmington (2-5)

The Seahawks couldn’t stop LSU and fell 84-97 on the road. Jordan Talley’s 22 points and 7 assists were not enough to help get the win in this one. The Tigers shot a blistering 59% from the field and the C.B. McGrath’s squad had little answers.

Wake Forest (5-4)

Danny Manning and the Deacons earned a comfortable win against Army 109-80. All five Wake Forest starters were in double-figures. Doral Moore led the way with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Wake Forest shot 58% from the field and dominated the glass 43-27.

Western Carolina (3-7)

As could be expected Western was blown out in Chapel Hill against #11 North Carolina 104-61. It was such a dismal display, the only player with any kind of production was Deriece Parks who scored 13 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Simply put, the Tar Heels in the Dean Dome were too much for the Catamounts.

Their second game of the week was postponed due to inclement weather against Southern Wesleyan.

Week 4: NC College Basketball

Image result for bj tyson isaac fleming

Week 4 of the NC College Basketball season has come and gone. Last week’s action started with the always-entertaining Big Ten/ACC Challenge and all the North Carolina teams emerged with a victory. As for the smaller schools, some played overtime thrillers and others played each other. Without a doubt, it made for an interesting week in the power rankings.

Appalachian State (5-5)

Appalachian dominated USF 84-61 early in the week. The Mountaineer tandem of Ronshad Shabazz (21 points) and Justin Forrest (19) led the way. Simply better ball movement by ASU led to the win in this one. South Florida only had 7 assists as a team.

In a surprise upset, the Mountaineers fell to Western Carolina in Cullowhee 72-71. Shabazz (16 points) and Forrest (18 points) played well again, but their effort was not enough to come away with a win. The game was lost at the free throw line, App State shot 5-12 from the charity stripe while Western Carolina went 12-15.

Campbell (4-5)

Campbell started out the week with a nice win on the road over Stetson 85-78. Shane Whitfield and Marcus Burk led the way with 20 points each. While star guard Chris Clemmons has been struggling, the emergence of Burk and Whitfield as being viable scoring options still make the Camels a threat in conference play this season.

Later in the week, the Camels came up a little short on the road against in-state opponent ECU 69-66. Marcus Burk was the only one to show up in this one. Burk scored 21 points and added 7 rebounds. Although they only shot 54% from the line, ECU won the game from the free throw line, taking 31 attempts compared to Campbell’s 10.

Davidson (4-3)

The Wildcats started the week with a tough loss to #13 North Carolina. Bob McKillop’s team played strong with the Heels but eventually dropped the contest 85-75. Going into the game, the key for Davidson was to make three-pointers and a lot of them. By the end of the game, the Wildcats mad 14 trey-balls. pretty good from a distance, However, there was a stretch in the second half around the 12-minute mark where Davidson went cold from the floor. The funk prompted an 11-1 Carolina run that ended any hopes Davidson had for an upset. The trio of Peyton Aldridge (22 points and 7 rebounds), Jon Axel Gudmundsson (19 points, 6 assists), and Kellan Grady (18 points) earned a ton of early-season respect in the loss. 

Later in the week, Davidson made quick work of the VMI Keydets 74-51. The tandem of Jon Axel Gudmundsson (22 points, 7 rebounds) and Peyton Aldridge, who stuffed the stat sheet with 20 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists, was too much to handle for VMI. The game was dominated at the line by the Wildcats who took 21 attempts to VMI’s 8.

#1 Duke (11-0)

This week, the Blue Devils showed they can flip a switch and dominate anyone at any given time. In a tight contest at Assembly Hall during the Big Ten/ACC challenge, the Blue Devils were seemingly tied with Indiana the whole game. That was until about 6 minutes left, then Duke pulled off a 17-4 run to seal the win on the road. The bench did nothing to contribute to the victory. To pick up the slack, the frontcourt duo of Bagley and Carter Jr. went for 41 points and 22 rebounds. Grayson Allen and Trevon Duval chipped in with 21 and 15, respectively.

In their second game of the week. the Blue Devils made easy work of South Dakota. At halftime, Coach K’s squad led 56-30 to pace the way to a 96-80 win. There was production from almost everyone. Star freshman Marvin Bagley had 19 points and 12 rebounds to go with Grayson Allen’s 25.

Duke blew out St Francis 124-67 in their final game of the week. The size of the Blue Devils was clearly the difference in this one. The bigs of Bagley, Carter Jr, and Boldin all had at least 15 points and 9 rebounds apiece. In total, the team outrebounded St Francis 61 to 25 in the game. The Devils also showed the ability to hit some threes, going 15-26 from beyond the arc shooting at a 57% clip.

East Carolina (5-4)

Last Wednesday, ECU head coach of seven years, Jeff Lebo, resigned after a poor 2-4 start to begin the season. Michael Perry assumed the role as interim head coach.

On Thursday, the Pirates hosted UNCW and stunned the Seahawks 93-88 in overtime. B.J. Tyson stuffed the stat sheet all evening. Tyson scored 30 points to go with six boards and two dimes. Isaac Flemming added 21 points of his own and Shawn Williams added a big presence off the bench with 15 points.

In their second game of the week, East Carolina hosted Delaware State. Despite begin down at halftime, the Pirates defeated the Hornets 63-57. Surprisingly, ECU was able to overcome a quiet night from B.J. Tyson. Fortunately for the Pirates, Issac Fleming and Kentrell Barkley both came to play. The two junior guards scored 17 points each and Barkley added 14 rebounds. 

To complete the trifecta in Coach Perry’s first week, the Pirates defeated Campbell 69-66. The trio of Fleming (19 points), Tyson (16 points, 7 rebounds), and Barkley (14 points, 7 rebounds) led the way for the Pirates. 

It looks like the Pirates may have just needed to get a change in coaching to right the ship. Sinc the resignation of Coach Lebo, the Pirates are 3-0. Coach Perry looks to be relying heavily on his three-headed horse of Tyson, Fleming, and Barkley. With a nice break till their next game look for ECU to try to build on this week’s success.

Elon (6-3)

It took overtime, but Elon sent South Florida home with a loss 79-78 in their first game of the week. Dmitri Thompson had his best game of the season. The senior dropped 23 points including the go-ahead basket in the win. Considering the fact star guard Dainan Swoope (7 turnovers) struggled in the contest, this was a quality win for the Phoenix. 

Matt Matheny’s club must have a thing for pulling out overtime wins. This time it took two overtime sessions but the Phoenix were able to claim another victory in a 71-65 thriller against Saint Peters. Tyler Seibring (23 points, 7 rebounds), Brian Dawkins (21 points, 8 rebounds), and Dainan Swoope (17 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists) led the way for the Phoenix. Dmitri Thompson added 10 rebounds in the victory.

High Point (3-5)

High Point throttled (why are you even playing) Johnson & Wales 90-54. Andre Fox led the way with 14 points.

When they actually played a Division 1 team, the Panthers got rolled by the College of Charleston 70-58. Outside of Fox’s 24, High Point didn’t have another player in double figures. Charleston dominated the game at the free throw line, drawing 25 attempts to High Points 9.

Gardner Webb (3-6)

In their only game of the week, the Bulldogs defeated South Carolina Upstate easily 87-66. Liam O’Reilly (19 points) and DJ Laster (18 points) led the way in scoring. Patrick Zeck had a double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds in the win. As Gardner-Webb tries to get back on track they face two tough games in the upcoming week at Auburn and at Maryland.

NC A&T (5-3)

After a hot start, the A&T looked like the team from season’s past against Central Connecticut. The Aggies dropped the contest 72-59 thanks, in part, to a 3 for 22 effort from the three-point line. Furthermore, the Aggies totaled a mere six assists as effective ball movement was at a minimum. Femi Olujobi, the nation’s leading scorer, finished with a pedestrian 14 points. Japhet Kadji had his best game to date with 15 points and 9 rebounds.

Later in the week, A&T dropped another game they should have won. This time, the fell to Presbyterian 70-73 on Davon Bell’s three-pointer with one second remaining in the game. The Aggies played catch-up throughout most the game after letting Presbyterian take a 32-22 lead into halftime. Femi Olujobi scored 17 points and snatched 10 boards. 

After a few tough road losses this week, it’s time to see if the Aggies are for real or if they just a had a few good games early on.

UNC Asheville (5-4)

Behind Amhad Thomas (24 points, 11 rebounds) and Macio Teague (22 points) the Bulldogs took down SC Upstate 82-70 at home. Teague also filled his stat sheet with four rebounds, four assists, and two steals. The Bulldogs shot 56.5% from three-point land and outrebounded the Spartans 36-32.

Later the week, Asheville got blasted by Clemson 83-52 in Littlejohn Coliseum. It was an offensive struggle all around, Asheville’s highest scorer (Thomas) only totaled 10 points. He also grabbed 11 rebounds in the loss. 

Asheville’s final game of the week was another disappointment. This time, the Bulldogs fell to Furman 83-72. Kevin Vannatta scored 18 points followed by Teague (14 points) and Alec Wnuk (12 points, 8 rebounds). 

North Carolina Central (4-6)

In their only real game of the week, NC Central played Southeast Missouri. Though they beat them a week earlier, Central was unable to beat the Redhawks a second time, dropping the contest 86-77. Reginald Gardner Jr. had a nice game with 26 points. Pablo Rivas added 19 points and 12 rebounds off the bench. 

#11 North Carolina (8-1)

Roy Williams’ squad bounced back in a big way against Michigan. The Heels simply dominated the game throughout, pulling off a comfortable win 86-71. After being shut down by Michigan State, Luke Maye responded with 27 points against the Wolverines. Joel Berry led the Tar Heel attack with 17 points and 5 assists. Outside of Moritz Wagner, the Tar Heel defense shut the Wolverines down.

Next up, Carolina took on in-state foe Davidson. Though Aldridge and the Wildcats dealt their best blow, UNC won the game 85-75. The tandem of Berry (27 points) and Maye (24 points, 17 rebounds) was enough to carry the team to a win. Carolina dominated the glass all night, outrebounding the Wildcats 54-23.

In the Heels final game of the week, Tulane was no match. Carolina won 97-73. Luke Maye led the way with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Dominating the glass and getting to the free throw line has been the recipe for the Heels.

UNC Charlotte (3-5)

UNCC couldn’t overcome a first-half deficit against James Madison and ultimately lost to the Dukes 87-82. Hudson Price had another nice game netting 24 points and 8 rebounds. Jon Davis added 16 points and 10 assists of his own. However, a 24-8 to start the game was too much for Charlotte to battle back from. 

Later in the week, the 49ers had no answer for Wake Forst. The Deacons cruised to an 80-57 victory. It was an all-around poor performance from the Niners. Their leading scorer, Jon Davis finished with 14 points but had 8 turnovers as well.

UNC Greensboro (5-3)

Wes Miller’s Spartans lost their first game of the week on a buzzer beater against Presbyterian 74-72. James Dickey had a standout game with 18 points and 13 rebounds in the loss.

Later in the week, Greensboro responded with a gritty road victory against Liberty 76-75 in overtime. Francis Alonso carried the Spartans with 36 points. Road wins have been a rarity for UNCG this season, so it was nice to see the Spartans finally pull off a win away from home.

NC State (7-2)

To start Jimmy V Week, the Pack pulled off a back-and-forth affair against Penn State. Though NC State essentially played a seven-man rotation, it was the bench who propelled the Pack to victory in this one. Omer Yurtseven scored 19 points to go with 11 rebounds while Sam Hunt added 14 points of his own.

Against South Carolina State, the Pack jogged to a 103-71 win. Torin Dorn impressed with 16 points and 10 rebounds. On a serious note, SC State’s Tyvoris Solomon, who collapsed in the first half of the game, had been reported as conscious and aware. Please send prayers to that young man as he recovers from a scary incident.

UNC Wilmington (2-4)

In the Seahawks only game of the week, UNCW lost on the road 93-88 to ECU in overtime. Though four Hawks were in double-figures, including Devontae Cacok’s 35, it wasn’t enough to outduel the Pirates. While Cacok shot 16 for 19 from the floor, the rest of the team shot 19 for 56 (33.9%). The Seahawks have a nice break in between games. Let’s see if Coach McGrath can work some out of the Seahawks woes to get them back on track.

Wake Forest (5-4)

An easy win against Richmond, 82-53, showed the signs the Deacons were starting to put things together. Wake featured a balanced attack with three players (Byrant Crawford, Doral Moore, and Keyshawn Woods) scoring at least 15 points. However, the key to the game was defense. Wake held the Spiders to a measly 35% shooting from the floor and only took 7 free throw shots all evening.

Danny Manning’s team continued their winning ways against Charlotte 80-57. The win extends the Deacons’ win streak to four games. Bryant Crawford had a nice game, tallying 17 points in limited minutes. Off the bench, Keyshawn Woods added 15 of his own. On defense, the Wake Forest defense held the 49ers to a lowly 32% shooting. It appears defense will the mantra for Wake this season if they plan to make a splash in the ACC.

Western Carolina (3-6)

To begin the week, WCU lost a hard-fought battle to College of Charleston 60-69. In the loss, Mike Amius had his best game of the season with 22 points and 7 rebounds. Deriece Parks added 18 points and 8 rebounds of his own. Had the Catamounts been more efficient from three-point land, the game would have been more interesting; however, WCU made only 5 threes on 24 attempts.

Later in the week, to much surprise, Western pulled off a big win against in-state rival Appalachian State. Deriece Parks scored a career-high 20 points while Mike Amius poured in 19 of his own to lead the way offensively. Matt Halvorsen was a solid contributor as well, scoring 14 points including all eight attempts from the free throw line.

NC College Basketball Review: Week 3

NC College Basketball Review: Week 3

Week 3: NC College Basketball

Week 3 of the NC College Basketball season has come and gone. Last week’s action featured a bevy of pre-season tournaments and invitationals to officially kick the college basketball season into full swing. See how our teams in North Carolina performed this week.

Appalachian State (4-4)

In a heartbreaker against James Madison, the Mountaineers lost in double overtime 105-99. Justin Forrest led the way for App State with 36 points off the bench. The big night earned Forrest a promotion into the starting lineup. Later in the week, ASU had a tough matchup against Davidson. Fortunately, RonShad Shabazz showed up and scored 18 points to lead the Mountaineers past the Wildcats 79-62. Forrest added 16 of his own in the victory. The Mountaineers were unable to come out with a win against VCU on the road dropping the contest 85-72. Shabazz led the way again with 19 points. They shot a poor 6-25 from the three-point line, so you can credit the loss to a lack of makes from beyond the arc.

Campbell (3-4)

Campbell lost their first game of the week in overtime to Abilene Christian 85-80. Marcus Burk led the way with 22 points. Next, they played Bowling Green and lost again 78-72. Shane Whitfield had a nice outing leading the way with 28 points. The Camels were finally able to break into the win column this week by defeating SC Upstate. Campbell was hot from three-point land, making 16 three-pointers in the game. Burk was on fire again with 26 points including 8 makes from three.

Davidson (3-2)

Davidson had a rough go at it Saturday against Appalachian State. The Wildcats fell to the Mountaineers 78-62. Peyton Aldridge continued his good season with a nice 17-point and 10-rebound performance, but it wasn’t enough to guide the Cats to victory. One difference maker in the game was the Wildcats inability to get to the free-throw line. On the evening, the Wildcats took four free throws compared to twenty-eight attempted by the Mountaineers. The Wildcats come out with a purpose against UNC Charlotte defeating the 49ers easily 85-70.  Peyton Aldridge continued his scoring ways dropping 25 points with 7 rebounds along the way. Kellan Grady also had a solid game netting 22 points and don’t forget the double-double from Jon Axel Gudmundsson with 12 points and 10 assists as well as 4 steals.

#1 Duke (8-0)

The Blue Devils had an adventurous week in the PK80 tournament and came away with three wins and a trophy. They defeated Portland State 99-81, Texas 85-76 in overtime and capped off the tournament with a win against #7 Florida 87-84. There was a well-balanced attack from the Blue Devils all tournament long. All starters were over 14 points in the game against Portland State. Against Texas, Bagley flexed his muscles by pulling the Devils back into the game and dropping 34 points and 15 rebounds. Continuing his dominance, Bagley again showed who’s who against the Florida frontcourt with 30 points and 15 rebounds.

“Your blood pressure is a lot higher when you don’t have good players than it is when you have good players. We have very talented players,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said after the Florida victory. “I believe in my guys.”

East Carolina (2-4)

ECU lost both of their games this week. First to Rutgers 61-47, then to NC A&T 87-81. Isaac Flemming and Jabari Craig both had 14 points in the dismal offensive night against Rutgers. ECU lost this one from the charity stripe going 4-11 versus 14-23 for the Knights. Against the A&T, Isaac Flemming had a nice game with 23 points. Credit Kentrell Barkley with a double-double in the game as well. However, efficiency at the line would again be the downfall of the Pirates.

“You’re not going to be able to win basketball games when you foul as much as we foul. It’s impossible. Anybody can beat you if you put them on the line 34 times. They’re shooting unguarded and they made them tonight… Give them credit. I thought they were terrific.” – ECU Head Coach Jeff Lebo

Elon (4-3)

Elon defeated Radford in their lone contest this week winning 77-74. Dainan Swoope again led the way with 24 points and 7 rebounds. Brian Dawkins chipped in with 21 of his own to help lead the Phoenix to a win.

“We had a good trace on the ball,” Elon forward Brian Dawkins said. “Everybody was locked in, so the look they did get wasn’t a great one. Glad to execute and come out with the win.”

High Point (2-4)

In their first game of the week, High Point dropped a hard-fought battle with UNC-Charlotte 67-70. Brandon Kamga was the leading scorer for the Panthers pouring in 26 points. Kamga and Andre Fox (10 points, 2-12 FG) were the only two Panthers in double-figures for the game. Later in the week, HPU traveled up to play Pittsburgh where they lost 63-71 despite forcing 22 turnovers. Give the Panthers credit though, they went into an ACC gymnasium and played tight with a team that plays well home. Andre Fox was able to shake his poor shooting performance against Charlotte with a 20 point output against Pitt.

“Just kind of some empty possessions late in the game and give them credit, they made some timely shots,” High Point head coach Scott Cherry said. “Still, right there with a chance to play and win the game… That’s pretty good for our group.”

Gardner Webb (2-6)

The Bulldogs had a rough week dropping all three games. They lost 67-47 to Wright State, to Fairfield 75-64 and in triple overtime to Jacksonville 106-99. Liam O’Reilly led the effort with 16 against Wright State. Then David Efianayi and DJ Laster both had 14 in the loss to Fairfield. The Bulldogs showed a little bite in the 3OT loss to Jacksonville, but essentially lost this one from the line only attempting 18 compared to the 41 Jacksonville attempted. The trio that seems to be doing most of the production for Gardner Webb all had nice games. Efianayi had 27 points, Laster chipped in with 20, and O’Reilly had a double-double sporting a 17-12 line. 

NC A&T (5-1)

In their lone clash of the week, the Aggies defeated ECU 87-81. Aaren Edmead had a surprise game off the bench with 25, along with the continued production of Femi Olujobi. Olujobi added 23 points and snatched 9 rebounds in the victory. 

UNC Asheville (4-2)

Asheville had a good week defeating Monmouth 62-51 and Wofford 85-65. Against Monmouth, Kevin Vannatta had a nice game netting 25 points. Ahmad Thomas was a stat stuffer. The senior guard scored 13 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, had four steals, and dished out five assists in the victory. From three-point land, the Bulldogs connected on 8 of 18 attempts. Against Wofford, MaCio Teague showed out with 19 points and 8 boards. Thomas added 18 points of his own in the win versus the Terriers. 

North Carolina Central (7-4)

The Eagles had an up and down week, they lost to Marshall 92-84 and Illinois 86-73 but pulled out a win against SE Missouri State 77-70. Raasean Davis led the way with 21 points on 10 of 14 shooting against Marshall. Raekwon Harney and Del’vin Dickerson finished with 19 and 17 points, respectively, in the loss. Against Illinois, Davis couldn’t muster much, but Reginald Gardner Jr had a nice game with 18 points. Davis returned to form in the Eagles lone win of the week scoring 20 and grabbing 10 rebounds for a double-double.

#11 North Carolina (5-1)

UNC had a decent week by most standards, but not their own. At they PK80 Tournament, they defeated Portland 102-78 and Arkansas 87-68 but ultimately fell to #4 Michigan State 63-45 in the Championship Game. Luke Maye had 20 in the Portland win and 28 in the Arkansas win to lead the way in both contests. When the Tarheels came up against their first true test on the year in Michigan State, they shot a dismal 24% from the field and only had one scorer in double figures (Theo Pinson with 16). This was not the Heels night. 

“Well, that’s about as bad an exhibition as I’ve ever seen. I did as poor a job coaching and getting my team ready than in any game I’ve ever coached. They were physically, mentally, emotionally more into the game than my club was.” “Today [freshmen] played like freshmen. The sophomores, juniors, and seniors played like freshmen. And the coach coached like he’d never seen a game of basketball before in his life. Other than that it’s not a bad night.” – Roy Williams after the Michigan State loss

UNC Charlotte (3-3)

The 49ers defeated High Point 70-67 in the first contest of the week. Hudson Price led the way with 17 in the victory. Najee Garvin poured in 13 to of his own to aid in the cause.  Charlotte had the misfortune of running into Davidson coming off a loss. They fell 85-70 to the Wildcats. Andrien White had an unexpected 22 points in the loss. You can accredit this loss to the lack of production from Jon Davis shooting a 2-11 from the field only netting 5 points coming in as the leading scorer for Charlotte at 16 a game.

UNC Greensboro (4-2)

The Spartans took a loss to Wake Forest 81-75. no matter how bad the Deacons have looked to date, they are an ACC school. Francis Alonso had another big showing against better competition, dropping 31 in the game to keep it close for the Spartans. The Spartans lose in a stunner on the road by a last-second jumper from Presbyterian falling 74-72. James Dickey had a huge game with 18 points and 13 rebounds. Francis Alonso chipped in with 16 as well as 15 from Demetrius Troy.

NC State (5-2)

NC State had an interesting week at the Battle 4 Atlantis filled with peaks and valleys. They started out roaring to a 90-84 upset over #2 Arizona. Then they fell to Northern Iowa 64-60 and Tennessee 67-58. The win against Arizona looked to be a big upset and tournament resume builder, but then Arizona lost every game in the Battle 4 Atlantis and fell out the top 25. Al Freeman led the way with 24 but Braxton Beverly had a showing with 20 off the bench versus the Wildcats.

Against Northern Iowa, Omer Yurtseven had 17 in the rather bleak showing offensively for the Pack. Same can be said in the game against Tennessee. There was lackluster shooting from everywhere. NC State needed better offensive sets against an efficient defense. None of the losses accumulated this week were terrible losses, but against some quality competition, it’s hard to determine what we can expect from State this year.

UNC Wilmington (2-3)

There were a lot of growing pains for C.B. McGrath’s Seahawks over the week at the Savannah Invitational. First, they got smothered by Loyola-Chicago 102-78. UNCW allowed the Ramblers to shoot a stunning 60% from the floor including 10-18 (55.6%) from behind the three-point line. Jordan Talley was the leading scorer for the Seahawks with 20 points. DeVonte Cacok was in foul trouble most of the evening and only logged 10 points and 6 rebounds in 14 minutes played. On the following day, the Seahawks ran into undefeated Valparaiso. Though the game was tied at the half, the Crusaders were able to pull away in the end. Jordan Talley led the way again with 13 points. Ty Taylor (13 points), DeVonte Cacok (12 points, 10 rebounds), and Marcus Bryan (8 points, 10 rebounds) were all solid contributors. 

Wake Forest (3-4)

The Deacons started the week with an 81-75 win against UNCG. They won the game with efficiency at the free throw line. Credit Keyshawn Woods as the leading scorer with 20 off the bench. Wake was finally able to get a quality win against a previously unbeaten team in Illinois in the Big Ten/ACC challenge 80-73. Bryant Crawford finally showed up and led this team to a win with 20 points and 4 steals to go along with it.

Western Carolina (2-5)

In the first contest of the week, the Catamounts lost 89-65 to UT Arlington. Matt Halvorsen had another decent showing with 16 points but defensively its been a struggle for Western. Later in the week, the Catamounts earned a win against Alabama A&M 82-72. Devin Peterson had a good game scoring 21 points and 7 assists.

Last Week’s Review: 

NC College Basketball Review: Week 2

 

NC College Basketball Review: Week 2

NC College Basketball Review: Week 2

Week 2 is through. As always, we have some great D1 NC College Basketball programs. See how they faired this week.

Appalachian State

Against Iowa State, the Mountaineers put up a valiant effort but ultimately lost 104-98 to the Cyclones. It was another big game for Ronshad Shabazz who led the way with 32 points along with Justin Forrest, who added another 32 off the bench. Later in the week, ASU played Western Michigan and lost 86-67. This was a rather disappointing display based on Appalachian State’s other performances thus far. The only Mountaineer production in this one came from Shabazz. App State was able to get back to their winning ways against UTEP in the opening game of the Puerto Rico Tip-off and beat the Miners 76-72. The Mountaineers had a much more balanced attack in this one with bench player O’Showen Williams leading the way with 19 points.


Campbell

A late rally wasn’t enough for the Fighting Camels to top UNCW in Wilmington. They fell to the Seahawks 88-84. Campbell received a surprising 33 points from Marcus Burk during a rare off night for Chris Clemmons. The star Camel only mustered up 17 points on 5-16 shooting from the field. With a little more efficiency, the Camels could have gotten a win. Campbell may have taken some frustration out in the next game. They rolled to an easy victory against Johnson and Wales 98-53. Marcus Burk had a good game again tallying 31 in this one.


Davidson

Bob McKillop’s squad came up short Tuesday, falling 81-68 to Nevada. The Martin twins formerly of NC State shined for Nevada while Davidson could not get much going offensively in the contest. A dismal 41% shooting was the downfall for the previously unbeaten Wildcats.


Duke

The Blue Devils had no issues with Southern. Duke won easily 78-61. Wendell Carter Jr led Duke with 20 points to go with Marvin Bagley’s 19. Both posted 11 rebounds as well. Duke also rolled to an easy win against Furman 92-63 later in the week. Bagley led the way with 24 points.

“It was just a time in the game when I was hitting, my teammates kept finding me,” Bagley said after the win against Furman. “They kept coming back to me, they believed in me enough to keep going and keep pushing, and I just executed on the plays we were running. It was one of those moments in the game when I was hot.”


East Carolina

Early in the weak, the Pirates fell to Radford 73-66. B.J. Tyson led the way with 16 in the loss. In another disappointing loss, ECU fell to Central Connecticut 79-68.  As has been the theme early this season, the only two contributors were Kentrell Barkley and B.J. Tyson both scored 19 points apiece. Later in the week, Jeff Lebo’s squad got back into the win column by squeaking past Cleveland State 72-69. B.J. Tyson led the way again scoring 25 points for the Pirates.


Elon

Elon came back to beat FIU 95-87 in a high scoring affair. Dainan Swoope led the way with 26 points. Also, count double-doubles from Brian Dawkins and Tyler Seibring. The following night the Phoenix took the court again Concordia. This was an easy win for Elon, 84-62. Elon again featured a balanced attack led by Dainan Swoope who put in 25 points in this one. For the final game of the week, Elon lost a heartbreaker to Milwaukee. After a 46-29 halftime lead, Milwaukee came back with a vengeance, winning with a put-back late to win 72-71. Swoope led the way again with 20 points.


Gardner Webb

DJ Laster scored 21 points with 9 rebounds in a 68-65 loss on the road to UCF. David Efianayi chipped in with 18. The Bulldogs seemed to take some frustration out in their next game against a lesser Warren Wilson squad winning 119-81. There was scoring from everywhere in this one. We’ll give a shoutout to David Efianayi and Liam O’Reilly who both scored 24.


NC A&T

The Aggies rolled past Citadel with a 13/15 FG performance by Femi Olujobi. He finished with 29 points and 9 rebounds. A&T also got a boost from Devonte Boykins double-double (18 points, 11 rebounds) in the 92-73 win. The final game of the week was a massive overtime win against Jacksonville on the road 90-82. The Aggies were again led by Olujobi with 37 and 15. 


UNC Asheville

Asheville put up a good fight against Vanderbilt but ultimately fell 79-76. The Bulldogs had a balanced attack with four starters in double figures. Next, UNCA responded with an overtime win versus Austin Peay 82-79. Macio Teague had a standout game scoring 26 points in the contest.

“I thought our guys showed a little bit of resilience down the stretch. We turned the basketball over a few too many times to put ourselves in that position, but I thought we responded well in a good environment. Austin Peay played well, and we were forced to get some stops down the stretch and fortunately, we came up with some good efforts on the defensive end.” – Head Coach Nick McDevitt


North Carolina Central

The Eagles lost to UT Martin 74-57. In the loss, NCCU got production from Raasean Davis with 16 points. Outside of Davis, the Eagles were nowhere to be found. Later in the week, Central took on Warren Wilson University who was no match 101-76. While everyone scored, Raasean Davis led the Eagles with 19 and 12. Finally, Central had a routine victory against Southern winning 80-67. Davis led the way again with yet another double-double posting 17 and 10.


North Carolina

North Carolina rolled to an easy 12-point win against Bucknell. They got big contributions again from Luke Maye (20 points) and Theo Pinson (19). Next, Carolina made easy work of Stanford 96-72. A big game from senior Joel Berry (29 points) paced the Tar Heels in the victory.

“You go through this, you feel good about being 3-0,” Roy Williams said. “I’ve seen some good things, but the freshmen have got a long way to go. Before the end of the year, they’ll either get better or I won’t have gray hair—because I won’t have any at all.”


UNC Charlotte

Charlotte put up a good effort versus Charleston but fell short 81-72 in the contest. A balanced attack led to a close game but they couldn’t get enough stops to truly make it a good game. The Niners bounced back in the next game defeating Presbyterian 83-74. Jon Davis led the way in this one with 24 points.


UNC Greensboro

The Spartans roll to an easy win versus NC Wesleyan with a balanced attack, Marvin Smith lead the way with 16 points. The Spartans also had no issues demolishing a Ferrum team 95-43. Same story for the Spartans a balanced attack but this time lead by a bench player with 19 from Isaiah Miller. Lastly, the Delaware Blue Hens were no match for the Spartans of Greensboro, the Spartans taking this one 79-66. Francis Alonso had a career day in this one scoring a career-high 32 points. Spartans also made easy work of Longwood. Alonso again was the spark off the bench scoring 16 points.


NC State

The Wolfpack rolled over Presbyterian in an 86-68 affair. They got big production out of Lennard Freeman who scored 23 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. Next up for NC State is the #3 Arizona Wildcats. An early test to see how serious we should take the Kevin Keatts squad this year in a loaded ACC race.

“It gets a little more challenging,” Keatts said. “Certainly we get to play, in my opinion, the No. 1 team in the country on Wednesday, which is Arizona, which is a very good program.” “I’m very pleased with the way we are playing on the defensive end,” Keatts stated later. “Obviously if you are a pressing team you want to be turning teams over.”


UNC Wilmington

C.B McGrath’s Hawks pulled out a tight game at home against Campbell 88-84. UNCW was again led by the tandem of Jordan Talley (18 points, 14 assists) and double-double machine Devontae Cacok (16 points, 17 rebounds).

“I wouldn’t have thought we turned them over 20 times in the game if I didn’t see the box score. Because all I can think about is the lob dunks and the wide-open 3s that occur because Cacok’s like Shaq out there,” Campbell coach Kevin McGeehan said.


Wake Forest

The Demon Deacons have been nothing but disappointing this year. This week, they started with a loss to Drake 77-74.  The only person for Wake Forest that came to play in this one was Doral Moore with a 17 point 17 rebound line. Next, they defeated an inferior Quinnipiac team 72-55. Crawford had 17 points in the game and was the leading scorer. Lastly, Wake lost to Houston 78-73. I can’t quite figure out what’s wrong with Wake Forest this year. On paper, they should have a much better record. Yet to start the year, here they sit 1-4. They need Bryant Crawford to play to his potential and become more efficient to lead this team to some wins.


Western Carolina

Against division-irrelevant Hiwassee, Western had a balanced attack featuring Devin Peterson with 15 points. Later in the week, the Catamounts got a taste of a real opponent, #14 Minnesota. Matt Halvorsen played well with 17 points in the loss, but no one else could muster any production in the game. In the final game of the week, WVU fell short to UMass 85-76. I think Western Carolina may have a few new starters this coming week as Matt Halvorsen lead the way with 18 points along with Desmond Johnson having 17 points, both off the bench.
