UNCG downs ETSU for first SoCon title since 2001 - Mar 7, 2018

UNCG won its first Southern Conference title since 2001 with a 62-47 triumph over ETSU Monday night in the U.S. Cellular Center. The Spartans avenged their loss to the Bucs in last year's title game of the Southern Conference Men's Basketball Championship presented by General Shale.
Demetrius Troy (6'0''-G-96) and Jordy Kuiper (6'9''-F-95) led UNCG with 13 points apiece. Jalan McCloud (5'11''-PG-95) paced the Bucs with 15 points and eight rebounds.
ETSU held a slim 28-27 advantage with 18:16 to go on a Mladen Armus (6'10''-F-97) free throw. UNCG scored 10 straight before McCloud made the Bucs' first basket after intermission at the 12:04 mark. He went coast-to-coast after a defensive stop to make it a five-point game, 37-32.
The Spartans methodically put it away from there. The lead stayed in the six- to nine-point range over the next five minutes. McCloud's layup with 6:16 left cut it to six once again, 45-39.
UNCG clamped down on the defensive end, allowing just two field goals the rest of the way. James Dickey (6'10''-F-96)'s layup was followed by a Kuiper jumped to get the lead to double figures, 51-40, at 4:40. It got no closer than nine the rest of the way.
Troy hit the exclamation point with a 3-pointer with 1:37 to go. Marvin Smith (6'6''-F, college: USC Upstate) scored the final point at the free throw line at 1:15.
The Spartans claim the league's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament announced on Sunday, March 11, on TBS at 6 p.m. UNCG is the first outright regular-season champion to follow with a tournament title since Chattanooga in 2016, also defeating ETSU.

UNCG: 27-7
ETSU: 25-9

3 notes to know

3 stats to know

- ETSU shot 30.6 percent from the field 30.4 percent (35-for-115) in the two losses to UNCG this year. UNCG held the Bucs to a season low in FG made (15) and their second-worst efforts in FG percentage (30.6 percent), 3-pointers made (3) and 3-point percentage (18.8).
- There were nine ties and six lead changes, but none in the final 16:22.
