N.C. Wilmington Seahawks Analysis
The N.C. Wilmington Seahawks are an undefeated team (pending Monday's results) that are performing spectacularly in offensive (4th in the nation in scoring at 101.3 points per game on 55.3% shooting from the field and 50.7% from deep) as well as defensive statistics (70.7 points allowed per game, 45.5% shooting from opponents, 10.0 steals per game and +19 rebounding margin). Despite the current success, Tuesday's game may prove to be much tougher to win as the competition increases.
Seahawks Eye Cover With Accuracy & Mountaineers' Struggles With Defense
The Seahawks have impressive accuracy from the three-point line, which will be beneficial in their matchup against App State. However, the Mountaineers tend to struggle with perimeter defense, making it likely that the Seahawks will have the edge. Offensively, App State has been inefficient and therefore will not be able to keep up with UNCW's firepower; this will push the Seahawks to victory and likely a cover as well.
