UNC Wilmington Seahawks – March Madness Team Predictions, Odds and Preview 2016

West No. 13 – UNC-Wilmington Seahawks (Overall: 25-7, Conf: 14-4)

Team Strengths:

UNC-Wilmington is led by Chris Flemmings, who averages 16 points per contest with a stellar 62.6-percent clip from two-point range and 37 percent from beyond the arc. Flemmings is one of the best shooters from the mid-majors that’s still flying under the radar, so this guy shouldn’t be left open at all throughout the course of the tournament.


The Seahawks are also terrific at preventing their opponents from connecting from downtown, as they are seventh in the nation in opponent three-pointers made and attempted alike.

Team Weaknesses:

Boy, do the Seahawks love to hack their opponents. They’re literally one of the worst teams in collegiate play when it comes to creating contact, committing nearly 24 fouls per contest.

Furthermore, it’s been a decade since the team made it to the Big Dance. UNC-Wilmington’s inexperience will cost the team dearly against none other than NCAA Tournament stalwarts the Duke Blue Devils on Thursday.

Team Stats:

Category Stat NCAA Rank
Points Per Game 78.1 47
Rebounds Per Game 37.2 101
Blocks Per Game 4.2 77
3-Point Percentage 34.1% 199

Position Name PPG

G Craig Ponder 11.1
G Denzel Ingram 12.6
G Chris Flemmings 16.1
G C.J. Bryce 9.9

Writer’s Prediction:

Coach K’s March Madness magic ends up being the Seahawks’ demise as Duke quickly eliminates the CAA champs from national title contention.
