GREENVILLE, S.C. -- UNC Greensboro bolted out to a 41-11 first half lead and never looked back to claim a 85-53 victory over East Tennessee State in quarterfinal action of the Mountain Dew Southern Conference Tournament. The Spartans, now 21-7 on the year, advance to face No. 2 seed Georgia Southern in the semifinals of the tourney at the BI-LO Center on Saturday.
