High Point Panthers

The Panthers only lost four of their first 24 outings this year. Those defeats came versus Wofford, Queens, Hofstra and Georgia. High Point would lose two of the next three to UNC Asheville and USC Upstate. The next three were wins however, over Radford, Charleston Southern and Winthrop.

In the Winthrop game on Wednesday, the Panthers had a close call. High Point scored 41 points in the first half, 45 in the second and then hit a 14-10 run in overtime for a win 100-96. Abdoulaye Thiam was the leading team scorer on his 25 points, four rebounds and one assist.

Longwood Lancers

Over on the Longwood side, they started out 13-4 before falling to Radford, UNC Asheville, USC Upstate (twice), Gardner-Webb, High Point, Charleston Southern in the next eight. Following wins over Winthrop, Presbyterian and UNC Asheville, the Lancers fell to Radford last weekend.

Matched up against Gardner-Webb on Thursday, the Lancers were drilled 50-28 in the first half. Longwood made a game of it with 41 points from there but ultimately lost 72-69 in the end. Walyn Napper topped the team with his 14 points, five rebounds and four assists.


I’ll probably just stick with High Point. The Panthers got into a bit of trouble in their last outing versus Winthrop but everything worked out. High Point shot a nice 50 percent from the field but also got out-rebounded 38-33 and coughed up 17 turnovers (leading to 26 points). Still, the Panthers have scored great this year. They’ve got 74 or more points in 18 straight outings.

The last time these teams saw each other, High Point scored a 93-76 win on February 1. The Panthers shot a blistering 61.1 percent from the field in that one but also had some turnover trouble with 13 total. High Point is going to need to hit another big total in this one (Longwood has been scoring well themselves lately), but I think the Panthers can pull off the cover.
