FACTS & STATS: Site: Greensboro Coliseum (23,000) -- Greensboro, North Carolina. Television: None. Home Record: Davidson 2-4, UNCG 7-3. Away Record: Davidson 4-3, UNCG 2-4. Neutral Record: Davidson 1-4, UNCG 1-2. Conference Record: Davidson 3-1, UNCG 3-1. Series Record: Davidson leads, 22-9.

GAME NOTES: Coming off their first conference loss in more than a calendar year, the Davidson Wildcats look to rebound this evening when they take on the UNC Greensboro Spartans.

Davidson suffered an 87-85 overtime loss on its home floor to Elon two nights ago, which snapped the team's 16-game conference winning streak. The Wildcats have been streaky this season, having strung together three or more wins twice and also three or more losses twice.

UNCG is off to its best league start and sits above .500 in January for the first time since the 2007-08 season. The Spartans are seeking a fourth consecutive victory after beating The Citadel in overtime Thursday night, 69-65.

Davidson has won the last two head-to-head meetings and leads the all-time series with UNCG, 22-9.

The Wildcats appeared well on their way to another victory on Thursday as they led Elon by 14 points with less than five minutes to play in overtime. However, the Phoenix closed regulation with a 16-2 run and forced overtime on a 3-pointer with two seconds remaining. Davidson shot just 4-of-11 from the field in the extra session and failed to get to the free-throw line. The loss spoiled another double-double from De'Mon Brooks, who tied a career-high with 28 points to go along with 10 rebounds. He was joined in double figures by Tom Droney (15), Tyler Kalinoski (13) and Brian Sullivan (12). Brooks, the preseason SoCon Player of the Year, has really picked up his play of late, averaging 23.3 ppg and 9.3 rpg while shooting 64 percent from the floor during conference play.

UNCG is led by junior forward Kyle Cain, who is averaging 15.7 ppg and 9.1 rpg and has scored in double figures in all but two games this season. He piled up 20 points and 16 rebounds in the win over Citadel for his league-best seventh double-double of the season. Sophomore Kayel Locke led all scorers with 21 points in Thursday's victory, and he came up with a big bucket with 3.7 ticks on the clock to force overtime, where the Spartans eventually prevailed. Locke has reached double figures in 11 of his last 12 outings and is second on the team in scoring with 12.7 ppg. Freshman Tevon Saddler is also averaging double figures with 11.9 ppg.

Given the Wildcats' inconsistent play throughout the season's first few months, it is hardly surprising that their SoCon win streak came to a crashing halt. They won't catch a break here playing on the road against a UNCG squad that is on a roll of late.

Sports Network Predicted Outcome: UNC Greensboro 74, Davidson 66
