Hoops To Play UNCG At The Gboro Coliseum

From the News & Record (thanks to Dash for the tip):

Game times aren't set yet. Heck, game days aren't even a done deal.

But the UNCG men's basketball team will play a healthy non-conference schedule in its first season of home games at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Four ACC opponents — including two ranked in the final AP top 25 poll last season — are among six teams that will play non-conference games at the coliseum against the Spartans. No. 12 Wake Forest, No. 24 Clemson, N.C. State and Maryland will help break in UNCG's new home court. The Spartans also will play host to East Carolina and Princeton and play nine Southern Conference games at the coliseum.

I know a lot of folks are against these sorts of games, but I think this is shrewd scheduling on our part. State gets to play a team it should beat comfortably, in front of what is likely to be a pro-State crowd, and gets RPI credit for a road/semi-road game. That's a good deal.
