Notes
UNC Greensboro: Redshirt junior power forward Kyle Cain played his first two years at Arizona State under former NCSU coach Herb Sendek. He averaged 7.5 points and 5.5 rebounds his sophomore year at ASU, but has increased his numbers to 16.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game, and is shooting 52.8 percent from the field. The 6-7, 210-pound Cain has scored at least 20 points in five games, including season-highs with 23 points and 14 rebounds in a 92-62 win over Greensboro College Nov. 20. He has five double-doubles, with the most recent an 18-point, 10-rebound effort in Saturday's 55-52 win at Virginia Tech … Two players from Baltimore have become building blocks for the future. Freshman guard Tevon Saddler is averaging 12.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game. He had 34 points and went 14 of 19 from the free throw line in an 85-84 loss against East Carolina Nov. 12 in the second game of his college career. The 6-4, 207-pounder has scored in double figures in all but four games. He missed the Virginia Tech win with an undisclosed injury … The 6-5, 240-pound Kayel Locke is a skilled wide-body in the post with good mid-range ability. He averages 11.6 points and 4.8 rebounds per game, had a season-high 25 points against Claflin on Dec. 11, and posted 21 points and nine boards against High Point on Nov. 8. Locke scored 15 points against the Hokies, and has reached double figures in seven straight games … The 6-7, 185-pound Paulos hit six three-pointers en route to 22 points, plus seven rebounds in an 87-66 loss at Presbyterian on Dec. 3. He also went 7 of 11 from beyond the arc en route to 21 points in a 78-65 win over James Madison on Dec. 18. The Utah native is averaging 10.2 points and 3.4 rebounds per game, and he is shooting 36.3 percent from three-point land … Three different players are capable of playing point guard - senior Drew Parker, sophomore Jordan Potts and freshman Diante Baldwin - but Parker has started every game. The 6-1, 178-pound Parker averages 1.7 points and 2.7 assists per game. Potts gives more of a scoring punch in averaging 7.0 points and 2.3 assists per game, while shooting a blistering 55.9 percent from three-point land (19 of 34) … Freshman small forward Tyrone Outlaw Jr. of Roxboro (N.C.) Person High is averaging 6.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 18.0 minutes per game off the bench for the Spartans. He could start if Saddler isn't ready to play.
