Greensboro, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - The 24th-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels continue a three-game road trip, albeit in their backyard, as they take on the UNCG Spartans in a non-conference matchup at the Greensboro Coliseum on Tuesday evening. Roy Williams squad hasnt exactly lived up to the immense hype it came into the season with as it sits a modest 6-3 on the year. The team did its best to contend with the top team in the land in Lexington this past weekend but fell to the No. 1 ranked Kentucky Wildcats at Rupp Arena, 84-70. UNCG comes into this contest at just 4-6 overall, However, that doesnt tell the whole tale. The Spartans have already suffered a six-game losing streak, but have righted the ship perhaps thanks to their current three-game win streak. UNCG was last in action on Saturday and escaped a road test at East Tennessee State, 80-79. Despite these schools being about 50 miles apart, this is just the second all- time meeting between them. Last season represented the first and North Carolina rolled to an 81-50 victory in Chapel Hill. Going into the matchup with Kentucky, UNC had held all of its previous eight opponents to under 40 percent shooting. The Tar Heels were unable to continue the trend, as the Wildcats were on fire to the tune of 56-percent efficiency in the game. To compound the problem, the Heels committed 18 turnovers, resulting in 24 Kentucky points. Brice Johnson led the way in defeat with 15 points. Marcus Paige tallied 14 points and doled out six assists, while Kennedy Meeks added 10 points to the cause. Scoring hasnt been a problem for North Carolina for the most part. The team enters this contest still averaging just over 80 points per game, despite shooting a less than desirable .297 from 3-point range. Paige leads three Tar Heels with double-digit scoring averages, putting up 14.0 ppg. Meeks has been a dominant force in the low post, converting 62.3 percent of the time and averaging a near double-double with 13.3 points and 9.4 rebounds per game. Johnson rounds out the top scoring threats on the roster at 11.7 ppg. J.P. Tokoto and Justin Jackson are just under double-figure scoring at 9.8 and 9.7 ppg, respectively. The Spartans manage a modest 72.0 ppg on the year, but are getting it done at a strong rate, shooting an efficient .452 from the floor. The team does not suffer from a lack of scoring depth, as four of the five starters boast double-digit averages. Tevon Saddler is the best of the bunch and the straw that stirs the drink as both a potent scorer (16.4 ppg) and deft distributor (4.3 apg). R.J. White (12.8 ppg), Nicholas Paulos (12.3 ppg) and Kayel Locke (12.2 ppg) are all jockeying for position behind Saddler in the scoring column. UNCG opened up Southern Conference play in impressive fashion, winning on the road at ETSU and handing the Bucs just their second loss of the season. All five starters finished in double figures for the Spartans and combined for 72 of the teams 80 total points. Saddler had a terrific outing, as the sophomore finished with 24 points, six assists and five rebounds. White posted a double- double with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Locke, Paulos and Clay Byrd matched Whites scoring output, all finishing with 12 points of their own.

Wilson Chandler Jersey . Dane Dobbie and Shawn Evans each had two goals and two assists for the Roughnecks (8-5), who outscored Minnesota 6-2 in the fourth quarter after being tied through 45 minutes. Curtis Dickson scored once and set up three more for Calgary and Dan MacRae, Geoff Snider, Tor Reinholdt, Karsen Leung and Matthew Dinsdale. Joel Embiid Jersey .Y. - Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby captured his second career Art Ross trophy on Sunday after leading the NHL in scoring this season.The Rangers force Game Six and the Wild even the score; notes on Zuccarello, St. Louis, Cooke, Toews and more. RANGERS ROCK PENGUINS Facing elimination, the New York Rangers invaded Pittsburgh, earned a first-period lead and never let the Penguins back into it, winning 5-1 in Game Five, forcing Game Six back in Manhattan. Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello each had three points for the Rangers, while LW Chris Kreider and D Ryan McDonagh each contributed a goal and an assist. Brassard, who was a point-per-game player for the Rangers in a dozen playoff games last year, now has six points (3 G, 3 A) in 12 playoff games this season, while Zuccarello is up to eight points (3 G, 5 A). Zuccarello also had the best possession stats for the Rangers, with 16 shot attempts for and seven against. The Blueshirts had 69.6% of the attempts with Zuccarello on the ice and 48.6% when he was off the ice. This was only Kreiders second game of the playoffs, and he was effective on a line with Derek Stepan and Rick Nash. Both Kreider and Brassard tied for the Rangers team lead with six hits. McDonagh, who only had one assist in 11 playoff games prior to Game Four, had a goal and an assist, with both points coming on the previously beleaguered Rangers power play. After scoring two goals on three attempts with the man advantage, maybe the Rangers are ready to leave that PP slump in the rearview mirror. After getting annihilated by Pittsburghs Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in Game Four, the Rangers (led by McDonagh and Dan Girardi) were much more effective against that duo in Game Five. While Malkin scored a goal, Crosby was on for 13 shot attempts for and 18 against. The inspirational story for the Rangers was veteran RW Martin St. Louis, playing a day after his mother died suddenly. St. Louis didnt have his best game, but the Rangers rallied around him and G Henrik Lundqvist stopped 31 of 32 Pittsburgh shots to keep the series going. The Penguins line of James Neal, Jussi Jokinen and Brandon Sutter didnt fare too well in the possession game. Neal, in particular, was on the ice for 28.6% of the 5-on-5 shot attempts when he was on thee ice, while the Penguins had 54.dddddddddddd0% of the shot attempts with Neal off the ice. In a must-win game, the Rangers played with an urgency that they havent shown in this series and are rewarded with a home date for Game Six. Theyre not out of the woods, by any means, but deserve credit for a big road win. WILD AT HEART The Minnesota Wild dominated play against the Chicago Blackhawks and won Game Four by a 4-2 score, evening the series at two games apiece. Wild defencemen Jared Spurgeon and Ryan Suter each had two points. Spurgeon, who had a goal and an assist, now has five points in the playoffs. Suter is up to seven. Wild LW Matt Cooke returned to the lineup, after serving a seven-game suspension and replaced Matt Moulson, who is out with a lower-body injury. Cooke was an impact player for Minnesota, playing a physical game (a game-high five hits), and chipping in an assist on the first goal of the game. He set the tone. Wild forwards Mikael Granlund, Erik Haula and Jason Pominville were all on for better than 70% of the 5-on-5 shot attempts, while Blackhawks RW Ben Smith had a game to forget, on for zero 5-on-5 shot attempts and 13 against. Smith spent the first half of the game on a line with Jonathan Toews, who was on for seven attempts for and 21 against, his 25% Corsi% was his lowest of the year. Toews faced the Wilds top defence pair, Suter and Jonas Brodin, for most of the night. Blackhawks RW Marian Hossa had two assists and D Brent Seabrook had one; they are tied for Chicagos playoff scoring lead with 10 points. Neither goaltender, Chicagos Corey Crawford or Minnesotas Ilya Bryzgalov, looked sharp, but with the Wild controlling play, they had more opportunities to take advantage against Crawford. In front of a rowdy home crowd, the Wild continued their winning ways, now 5-0 at home in the postseason. If theyre going to pull off the upset, though, they are going to need to win at least one in Chicago.
