The defending Southern Conference Champion UNCG men’s basketball program released its 2018-19 regular season schedule today featuring road non-conference matchups with two SEC teams ranked in CBSSports.com’s most recent preseason poll in No. 1 Kentucky and No. 19 LSU. The non-conference road schedule will also see the Spartans make in-state commutes to North Carolina A&T, UNCW and Elon. In December, UNCG will close out the non-conference slate against Radford, the defending Big South Champion, at the Greensboro Coliseum.
"We're pleased to have our schedule complete and excited to start our pre-season practices in preparation for the season,” said Head Coach Wes Miller. “Playing our first three games on the road will test us early, but also help prepare us for what we will face as we make road swings in conference play."
The Spartans are coming off a program-record 27 victories last season and are returning First Team All-SoCon selection Francis Alonso, First Team All-SoCon Tournament selection Demetrius Troy, SoCon Defensive Player of the Year James Dickey and SoCon All-Freshman selection Isaiah Miller.
Miller, meanwhile, received a long-term contract extension in March and is just 13 victories away from setting the program record for wins by a coach as he continues to build the Spartans into one of the premier programs in the SoCon. Over the past two years the Spartans have posted an impressive 29-7 record in league play, including a 16-2 record at home.
