It was a close one, but on Friday the Panthers sidestepped the Green Bay Phoenix for a 63-60 victory.
Speaking of close games: UNCG was close but no cigar on Friday as they fell 93-90 to the Massachusetts Minutemen. Four players on UNCG scored in the double digits: guard Kaleb Hunter (18), guard Dante Treacy (16), forward Mohammed Abdulsalam (14), and guard De’Monte Buckingham (14). De’Monte Buckingham’s performance made up for a slower game against Green Bay on Thursday.
