Throughout this past weekend’s series against Towson, UNCW was without arguably its two best players. Both Brooks Baldwin and Dillon Lifrieri failed to make an appearance during the three-game slate, leaving the top of the Seahawk order in question. But again, UNCW’s supporting cast stepped up to the plate when they were needed most.

However, for Smith, it was the opportunity he had patiently been waiting for.
