and UNC Asheville have met on the hardwood three times since 1996 with the Wildcats winning all three matchups.

UNC Asheville returns two starters from last year’s club in senior guard Trent Meyer (9.7 ppg, 125 assists, 64 steals) and sophomore forward Will Weeks (9.0 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 59.4 FG%). Weeks was named to the Big South All-Freshman team a year ago.

Also returning is redshirt senior Jaron Lane. He missed last year due to an ankle injury. The 6-4 forward was the sixth man for the Bulldogs during their Big South championship teams in 2011 and 2012. He averaged 11.5 points per game two years ago and scored 16 points in Asheville’s near upset of top-seeded in the 2012 Tournament.

UNC Asheville placed four players in doubles figures en route to an 86-45 exhibition game win over visiting Brevard College Monday night at Kimmel Arena.
