UNCW is one of the worst three point shooting teams in the country. That being said let's take a moment to choose which Seahawk player with at least 20 attempts will inexplicably go 5-9 from three versus UNC.

Tanner Milson 38.7%

Freddie Jackson 26.1%

Addison Spruill 25%

Chris Dixon 16.7%

Actually the even money is probably on Craig Ponder who is 1-15 so far this season.

UNCW is a decent offensive rebounding team with an OR% of 33.0 but allowing opposing teams to pull 36.0% of available offensive boards. UNC's rebounding has been suspect, especially with Joel James out making this an area worth watching. UNCW has four players in the 6-8 or 6-9 range giving them some size to contend with.
