News Items from UNC Greensboro

NC State comes to town Sunday, to take on the Spartans.

With many of the students away, it’s a great opportunity for faculty and staff to cheer even louder for the team, as they take on the ACC opponent.

NC State is currently 7-2, with big wins last week over Wisconsin and Wake Forest. UNCG is 8-2, with big road wins recently at Georgetown and Radford. The game will be broadcast locally on My48.

The SoCon will present its SoCon Faculty and Staff awards to two members of the UNCG community, at the game. And – yes – the baby derby will be at halftime.

Want to gear up for the game? The day before (Saturday), Coaches Wes Miller and Trina Patterson as well as Chancellor Franklin D. Gilliam Jr. will be at the UNCG Pop Up Shop, with a live remote broadcast by Chris & Chris on Rock 92 FM. They’ll be on hand starting at 11:30 a.m. (Please note this updated time.) Listen in or, better yet, stop by and pick up some UNCG gear and spirit wear for the games ahead.

All merchandise at the Pop Up Shop will be 25 percent off, and if you show your UNCG app you will get an extra 5% off.

And get an early start to the weekend by cheering on UNCG Women’s team at NC A&T this Thursday. Tip-off will be at 5:30 p.m. The Spartans are 6-3, and senior guard Nadine Soliman just set a new program record for three-pointers made.
