RE: UNCW vs. UVA 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament
Hey everyone,

I've been lurking around on these boards all season and finally registered a few days ago in time for the tournament. I thought I would share my thoughts on our chances against UVA.

First off, I think we are peaking at the perfect time. Bryce has been consistent all season, Ingram has hit plenty of big shots, Cacok has really come into his own as an elite big in the CAA.

But they key to the Seahawks success starts, as many of you know, with Chris Flemmings. I was extremely worried about his play mid-way through the year -- he often times appeared to be lacking confidence and took a back seat to Bryce, Ingram, and Cacok -- even when these guys weren't really feeling it / we needed a spark.

But there's something about March that makes Chris Flemmings step up. He looked amazing to me in the CAA tournament. He showed confidence I hadn't seen from him since the run to the tournament last year. He hit big shots. He drove to the bucket. He assisted his teammates. It was a thing of beauty.

All week, I was hoping we'd be able to avoid drawing UVA. They've had their struggles this season, but they're a well coached team that straps up on defense and exhibits patience on the offensive end. To me, it seemed like the worst matchup for our UNCW team that is fueled by high energy play, big time shots, dunks, etc.

But upon further review today, I really think we've got a fighters chance. Here's how I see UNCW winning this game:

We must shoot the ball well. Plain and simple, if we're not hitting our shots, there's no beating Virginia. I anticipate Virginia is going to use their "Pack Line" defense. For those who haven't seen it, here's what it looks like:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fGMevxY6tA

As you can see, those guards up top are not getting any looks at all off the dribble. Unfortunately, that's how Ingram gets the majority of his looks -- pulling up in a defender's face. I don't think Virginia is going to give that to him. The Seahawks have a tendency to chuck up threes sometimes until Keatts gets on them about running some motion. UNCW is going to have to (a) move the ball well around the perimeter and (b) be patient and get the best shot. Part c is making those shots, but that's a given when you're an underdog.

As a team, UNCW's biggest weakness is probably the lack of size. UVA gains an advantage from this lack of size, but not in the way most teams would. Virginia likes to be long and physical on defense. Smaller guards have run into problems all season long because they can't penetrate. If they do, there's swarming help defense right there in their face immediately. If UNCW can penetrate and kick, the shots will be there. This is something that isn't easy to replicate until you see it -- most teams struggle with pack line even if they know it's coming.

Defensively, the key for UNCW is going to be keeping UVA's guards from heating up. I've noticed in the games where their offense played poorly, the opposing team did a great job keeping the three point shot out of the equation for them. Once they start knocking down the three, that's when the driving lanes open up and UVA offense becomes extremely efficient. Luckily, UVA doesn't really have a major interior threat on offense -- so our tendency to foul and get bullied down low (esp. when Cacok is out) won't be prominent.

In short, the keys to the game for UNCW are ball movement, knocking down the three ball, being patient, and neutralizing the UVA three ball.

I'm super excited for this game and will continue to study UVA and how I think we should approach them.

Thanks! I've wanted to get in on the discussion for a while now, but haven't gotten around to making an account. Hopefully we'll have a few more games to talk about this year.

I believe we will! This is our year!

Feel free to stick around for baseball and the off season.

Reading the UVA bball forum, seems like they think UNCW is the equivalent of a 16 seed and think they are going to beat UNCW by 20+. I would love for nothing more than UNCW to blowout UVA.

Shoot like ya'll did against W&M in the CAA tourney and UNCW will win.

And in fairness, a line of 8.5 for a slow paced team like UVA is a monster number and is a line that screams to bet UVA. In my eyes there is no way the line should be that high, but Vegas always seems to know.

Exactly. So tread carefully in betting in favor of your Seahawks. Also is it the largest line of any of the 5/12 games, which everyone knows provides "upsets". I like UNCW in this game, but the Vegas line has me really contemplating how this game will go.

I'd take the 8.5 to anyone who wants to give it to me!

Never bet on your own team. Emotion clouds judgement.

I made a killing this year betting the overs on UNCW :). Usually i agree. But i really feel like even if we don't win, we won't lose by much. 8.5 for UVA is prob like 15 for a normal team.

Agree. We could see two different UVA's, and possibly see them both in the same game.

We won the CAAT by playing much better defense in the tournament then we had previously, especially during the 2nd half. We'll have to play 110% UNCW basketball both halves to upset UVA and shock all of our doubters. We can absolutely do it, and I expect them to.

RE: UNCW vs. UVA 2017 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament
The keys to our success all season have been to shoot well and keep Cacok out of foul trouble. If we do both of these things it will be a good game...one we can win. When we don't do these things we typically lose.

I am worried that UVA has faced up tempo teams like Louisville and UNC and was able to slow them down - beat both. I hope we can rattle them with some 3's early in the game!

Go Hawks!!

Good points except neither of those teams shoot the 3 well at all.
