It’s Scott Padgett’s sixth full season as as the head coach of the Samford Bulldogs and it is already a forgone conclusion it won’t be the first his team finishes with a winning record in the Southern Conference.
Things started well enough with two consecutive wins but nine straight losses since have Samford parked in eighth place and ranked ninth out of ten teams by Sports-Reference’s Simple Rating System (SRS).
The ‘Dogs’ defense wasn’t any good in the non-conference and it’s been even worse in conference play, where it is allowing opponents to shoot .481 and get loads of offensive rebounds when they happen to miss.
It all suggests physical and mental weakness, unlike Wes Miller’s team, which hosts this particular matchup.
Greensboro wins with toughness. Its defense, like Samford’s, has actually gotten worse in Southern Conference play, at least in terms of the opponent’s shooting percentage. SoCon opponents are shooting .460 against the Spartans, up from down around .400 in the non-conference.
In the first matchup, at Samford, Greensboro struck first but the Bulldogs, to their credit, never went away, finished even in the second half and lost by seven to earn a cover as twelve-point underdogs.
Greensboro’s offense can struggle to put the ball in the basket. It’s only shooting .435 as a team this season.
It does well in the turnover battle, though, where it has forced 172 more turnovers this season than it has committed. Samford, by contrast, has turned it over 393 times, 344th out of 353 Division I teams.
James Dickey, the 6’10” senior forward, had one of the worst games of his career on Wednesday — two points and three rebounds before fouling out in just twelve minutes. UNCG beat the Citadel by twenty anyway.

Free Samford Bulldogs vs. UNC Greensboro Spartans NCAAB Prediction: Greensboro opens this one up.
On the road, UNCG couldn’t break Samford’s spirit. Things may be different at the Coliseum, where the Bulldogs will surely commit a couple more especially sloppy turnovers, which the Spartans will use to fuel their offense.
