UNCW vs. UVA 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament
FWIW, our Virginia brethren in the CAA like this matchup. JMU and William and Mary boards see our 3 point shooting as a big threat to their defense.

Chime in on your thoughts and observations.

I thought I had posted an in depth break down of UVA, but it ain't here. My thoughts?

UVA isn't particularly big and only have one player averaging double figures at 12.5 ppg. They have the #1 defense in America, but apparently it is built to stop interior games found on most ACC and P5 squads. Our speed and outside game could give them trouble. And if we can rebound and get out on the break, we could get hot and pressure them to score with us. They also play 10 players at least 9 minutes per game, so they have a deep bench.

CJ Bryce will be key. His ability to break down a defense and hit the short jumper in the lane will be huge. They stop penetration to the basket in the half court, so it will be hard for Flemmings and Talley to get all the way there. Perhaps we can draw some fouls and get the kick out.

Mosely and Ingram will need to get hot outside. If we can drain some 3's, they may not be able to keep up with our ability to score from every position.

UVA is +3.4 in rebounds per game and #2 in turnover margin at
+ 3.31. They are #1 in the ACC in defensive rebounding % at .758, so we will have to hit a high percentage of our shots.

Nobody scores a lot against UVA, so this will be a tough game without a lot of transition points. Something about this matchup I like after reading the Virginia boards though.

I just think we can outscore them at every position.

UNCW 65
UVA 60

Interesting read about their loss to West Virginia. The cumulative effect of the press caused them trouble. In a deliberative offense like UVA, taking time off the shot clock and forcing the pace of the game is key.

RE: UNCW vs. UVA 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament
I agree this is one of the most interesting matchups in the first round. This is very much a coin flip game to me. UVA's defense will give you problems. UNCW's shooting can really bother UVA. Which style wins? In today's faster paced game and with how UVA stumbled down the stretch against those who were faster paced the edge is UNCW. However, I think the key here is no different than beating Bruiser's Drexel squads several years ago. Get on them early and force them to play catch up, which is out of their element. If you start off the game shooting cold, it likely will spell doom. If you come out shoot well and get a lead, UVA will have to pick the pace up which favors you guys. I think this game will a good idea of the winner by the halfway mark in the first half, maybe even by the under 12 timeout. I think whoever wins this game beats Florida or ETSU regardless.

Another important thing for UNCW is to not let UVA back in if we get a lead. If we get that lead we need, stay on the gas. Don't start jacking 3's with 25 seconds left on the shot clock. Wait for the open, good look. Keep the pace high, but be smart.

I'm already beyond excited for this game.

I really like London Perrantes and while I wouldn't expect our press to bother UVA, you have to believe that Keatts is studying film from the Syracuse game last year where UVA folded.

Good luck guys. I hope both UNCW and ETSU wins. I really want to see both teams face each other for a 2nd time for a spot in the sweet 16.

I would love to see that as well, it just bothers me that it would have to be two mids battling it out for a 16 spot. I'd rather watch them both continue to drop majors from the field.

That $hit is intentional. Just like matching Dayton and Wichita, two teams that could make legit runs now have to knock one another out.
