Classic ESPN 4 OT clip, in case you missed. Garcia is a magician. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-PshKPmzacI

A lucky day when Ryan Sawvell came to Wofford. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPg_2dQq5b0

That's a great interview with Sawvell. It is a reminder that he had not played for almost two years when last year began. His development has been a large part of the progress of this team. Definitely a fortunate day when he came to Wofford.

As far as Zion is concerned, our best bet is that the coach at wherever he goes will schedule a visit to his home and let him play in the JRIS!

Alumni event before the game at UNCG. I'll be there- any other Terrier fan bloggers? It's an awesome event inside the Coliseum and this is at least the 3rd year they've done this. Always nice to meet up with fellow Terriers and hear from Thom Henson and other folks in the Athletic Department & College.

I'll be there with a fellow alum and a friend. True, nice venue. Hope to see you, T13. UNCG will come at us hard but it would be nice to get'em again.

Congrats to Fletcher on his SoCon POTW honor. Well deserved.

I have to think that Eric Garcia will get some All-Conference, and perhaps All-American, recognition. His Assist/TO ratio, FT shooting, and 3-point shooting are all way up there nationally, as are intangibles such as leadership and courage.

I would hope so. EG is a Terrier's Terrier.

Worst half of basketball all season. Super flat on both ends.

Yes, this might be even worse than that Citadel debacle at home. What happened? Were we just not ready? Were we still tired? UNCG is improved, but they ain't exactly Duke or UNC even though we are making them look like that. I guess in the end it is just part of having a lot of young players...getting nights like this where nothing goes right (particularly on the road).

And why would anyone want to go play at UNCG? They are a commuter school with no fans, much like USC Upstate. Even if you were to win the championship no one would notice or give a rat's behind.

Besides the inability to make FTs, Fgs, 3 pt FGs, play defense, rebound or hustle, we've been pretty good.... :shock:

Didn't we clobber this same team at home? This simply should not be happening. Forget youth, fatigue, etc. There is really no viable excuse for this kind of a result against UNCG. Maybe the guys all have love hangovers from a great Valentine's Day night with the girlfriend...just brainstorming for ideas here.

We were not sharp. UNCG played some very good D, and penetrated effectively. We shot 31% to their 54%. http://woffordterriers.com/news/2017/2/ ... esday.aspx
