GREENSBORO, N.C. – In a game where UNC Greensboro men’s basketball’s defense was stifling, the Spartans allowed the fewest points to an NCAA Division I opponent in program history in a 64-30 victory over Tennessee Tech on Friday night in Fleming Gymnasium. The victory was also UNCG’s second in as many appearances in the Spartan Invitational.
In total, UNCG held the Golden Eagles to 22.4 percent shooting from the field, as Tennessee Tech made just 11-of-49 attempts from the field. From behind the arc, UNCG limited Tennessee Tech to just three made attempts on 22 shots.
UNCG was led in scoring by senior forward James Dickey, as he scored 12 points to go along with eight rebounds, two blocks and two steals. Junior guard Isaiah Miller and sophomore guard Michael Hueitt Jr. also reached double figures, with both chipping in 11 points.
