What to Know

The UNC-Wilmington Seahawks will face off against the VMI Keydets in a playoff game at Ocean Center at noon ET on Sunday. UNC-Wilmington is the slight favorite, but fans of both teams should be in for an exciting matchup likely to go down to the wire.

It was close but no cigar for the Seahawks as they fell 59-55 to the Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens two weeks ago. One thing holding UNC-Wilmington back was the mediocre play of guard Mike Okauru, who did not have his best game: he finished with ten points on 5-for-10 shooting and turned the ball over four times in his 31 minutes on the court.

Speaking of close games: VMI was close but no cigar three weeks ago as they fell 68-66 to the Wofford Terriers. VMI's loss shouldn't obscure the performances of guard Trey Bonham, who had 17 points along with seven rebounds, and center Jake Stephens, who shot 5-for-11 from beyond the arc and finished with 23 points and five boards.

Having both suffered close losses, these teams will no doubt be fighting for every inch to win this one. Check back to see which squad is able to work their way into the win column.
