GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG junior forward Kyle Cain (Chicago, Ill./Arizona State) has been named this week’s Blue Chip Performer sponsored by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. This is the second year that BCBSNC has sponsored the Blue Chip Performer award, which is chosen weekly from all sports in season and runs throughout the 2013-14 UNCG Athletics season.
Cain led the Spartans to just their second victory all-time against a team from the Atlantic Coast Conference with a 55-52 victory over Virginia Tech in Blacksburg Saturday. The victory snapped a 23-game skid for the Spartans against teams from the ACC and was also their first non-conference road victory since the 2009 season against USC Upstate.
Cain posted a double-double in the Spartans’ come-from-behind victory as he scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds against the Hokies. He was 8-of-14 from the field and connected on both free throw attempts to help the Spartans rally from an 11-point second half deficit.
