The Furman Paladins (23-6, CONF 13-3) and UNC Greensboro Spartans (23-6, CONF 13-3) face off in a Southern Conference showdown at Greensboro Coliseum. Furman and UNC Greensboro are tied for second place in the conference, so this is a big time for both squads. The Spartans knocked off the Paladins 86-73 earlier this season. 

Furman comes into this game hot having won eight of the last nine games, but over the last three games they have failed to cover the spread.

Furman is led by guard Jordan Lyons who is averaging 16.8 points while shooting 43.7 percent from the field. Against Western Carolina earlier in the season, Lyons put up 33 points. 

North Carolina Greensboro comes into this game having won six games in a row and nine of the last ten games. 

The offense is good for the Spartans at home but the real strength has been the defense that is giving up 59.3 points and letting opponents shoot only 40.4 percent from the field. If the Spartans do end up making the NCAA tournament. the defense could win them a game or two. 

UNC Greensboro is led by Isaiah Miller who is averaging 18.2 points while shooting 43 percent from the field. In the last game against VMI, Miller put up 23 points in 33 minutes. 

Furman is 15-6 against the spread in the last 21 road games. The over is 7-1 in Furman’s last eight games played on Wednesday. The home team is 10-4 against the spread in the last 14 meetings between Furman and North Carolina Greensboro. 

UNC Greensboro is the better team, and they are going to have no locking down on the defensive side in this game. This has been a series that has been dominated by the home team, and it will happen again. Back UNC Greensboro to win this game and cover the spread.
