Spartans Going For Second Consecutive WinThe Spartans opened their season with an impressive 83-50 win over North Carolina A&T.

UNC Greensboro looked good offensively in its first game. The team shot 42.9 percent from the field and 32.4 percent from three-point range.

The Spartans also played well on defense, holding the Aggies to 50 points. They will be facing a more talented team in the Jayhawks and will need another great defensive effort to give themselves a chance to win this game.
Jayhawks Looking For First Win Of The YearThe Jayhawks had a disappointing start to their season, losing their first game to the Duke Blue Devils. They will be trying to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Spartans, which will give them their first win of the year and second consecutive win over the Spartans.
