WILMINGTON, North Carolina
- The UNCW women’s basketball team opens the home portion of its 2013-14 schedule on Wednesday as it welcomes future Colonial Athletic Association foe Elon to Trask Coliseum for a 7 p.m. contest.

The Seahawks return home after opening the 2013-14 campaign with a 99-50 setback at No. 6 Notre Dame on Nov. 9. Junior Kelva Atkins scored 16 points and freshman Brie Mobley added 12 for the Seahawks, who were limited to just 30.0 percent (18-of-60) shooting and were out-rebounded 54-24 in the loss to the Fighting Irish.

UNCW enters Wednesday’s home debut with an all-time record of 32-8 in home openers and has won its first regular-season game in Trask Coliseum in each of the last nine seasons. The Seahawks, who last loss a home opener during the 2003-04 campaign, posted a 59-45 victory over North Carolina Central in their 2012-13 home debut last November.

Picked to finish fifth in the Southern Conference preseason coaches’ poll, Elon stands at 1-0 on the season following a 73-68 victory over Winston-Salem State at home on Saturday. The Phoenix shot 43.8 percent (21-of-48) from the floor against the Rams, including an 11-of-22 effort from the field in the second half, while also sinking 26-of-33 attempts (.788) from the free-throw line.

Senior Kelsey Harris, a preseason All-So-Con selection, led the Phoenix with a career-high matching 18 points while junior Sam Coffer chipped 14 points and 14 rebounds to record the double-double. Freshman Lauren Brown joined the duo in double figures, contributing 10 points on the strength of a 4-for-8 performance from the field.

Wednesday’s contest will serve as the seventh meeting between the two programs. The series is tied at 3-all after the Phoenix rallied for a 67-61 victory over the Seahawks last November in Alumni Gym, the fourth straight meeting between the two sides decided by six points or less.

Wednesday’s tilt will serve as the last non-conference matchup between the two teams as Elon will leave the Southern Conference to join the CAA for the start of the 2014-15 season.  

UNCW is back in action Saturday as it wraps up a brief two-game homestand with a 2 p.m. matinee against Northern Kentucky. The game will serve as the first half of a men’s and women’s doubleheader that will see the men host Wingate in its home opener at 7 p.m.
