The Yellow Jackets enter McCamish Pavilion for their second of the seven home game stretch. Brian Gregory is hopeful that the Jackets can extend their win streak against the UNC-Wilmington Seahawks to 4-0.
The Yellow Jackets come back to The Pavilion tonight after a big non-conference win against Georgia last Tuesday.
UNC Wilmington enters McCamish tonight winning 3 out of their past 4, with their loss coming late in the game on the road against Marshall. They are 4-0 at home this season, with all four losses coming on the road.
UNC Wilmington is lead by Senior forward Keith Rendleman. Rendleman is 6-8 220lbs and recorded 16 double-doubles last season(career 25 total). He had nine games where he recorded double digit rebounds in the 2011-2012 season. He also lead the Seahawks in blocks last season with 30.
If the Jackets want to continue their success, they will need to find a way to shut the UNCW's big man down. This will be a test for the Jackets tonight on the boards, and Brian Gregory is not taking this game lightly. CBG has said rebounding has been an issue lately, and we hope to see improvements tonight as UNCW will have a strong presence in the paint.
