On Saturday afternoon, the UNC Wilmington Seahawks will take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
The UNC Wilmington Seahawks saw their 2 game win streak end on Tuesday after they lost 69 - 63 to the Campbell Camels. Campbell sprinted out in front of UNC Wilmington and the Seahawks had to play catch up for the early part of the game. The Seahawks eventually battled back and at the half, it was a 35 - 35 game. The 2nd half featured more back and forth by the two teams with the Camels finally wresting control in the waning minutes to seal the win. The Seahawks were paced by the Dylan Sherwood and his 12 points as UNC Wilmington shot just 41% overall and 26% from beyond the arc. The Seahawks will need a better all around effort if they want to have a shot at knocking off the Golden Gophers.
The Minnesota Golden Gophers got their 7th straight victory back on Monday after they beat the Furman Paladins 86 -76. Minnesota opened the game on an 11 -4 run but Furman didn't let the Gophers get to far ahead of them until the midway point of the 1st half. That's when Minnesota briefly pulled away before Furman closed the gap to make it a 40 - 33 Minnesota lead at the half. The Paladins stayed as close as they could in the 2nd half but they just couldn't get over the hump against the Gophers. Joey King paced Minnesota with 19 points as the Gophers shot 52% overall. The close game might have been a wakeup call for Minnesota and it's highly unlikely that they will let a game get that close again.
