ETSU's 16-game winning streak ends at UNCG

ETSU suffered their first conference loss of the season on Monday at UNCG.

Francis Alonso had 20 points and Demetrius Troy scored 17 to help UNC Greensboro beat ETSU 74-56 on Monday night to pull within one game of the Buccaneers in the Southern Conference standings.

Troy was 6-of-8 shooting, hitting all four of his 3-point shots. Marvin Smith added 13 points and James Dickey had eight points, seven rebounds and a program single-game record eight of UNCG's program-best 14 blocks. The Spartans (20-6, 11-2) won their fourth in a row and snapped ETSU's win streak at 16 games.

Alonso hit a 3-pointer as UNCG scored 11 of the first 16 second-half points and Jordy Kuiper's 3-pointer capped a 9-0 run that pushed the Spartans' lead to 53-39 with 11 minutes to play. ETSU (22-5, 13-1) trailed by double figures the rest of the way.

Desonta Bradford led the Bucs with 21 points. ETSU set season lows for field goals (20), field-goal percentage (30.3), assists (four) and total points - their fewest since an 86-51 loss at then-No. 11 Villanova on Nov. 20, 2015.
