WILMINGTON, North Carolina
- Fresh off its first victory of the season, the UNCW women’s basketball team returns to the road Tuesday as it renews acquaintances with regional rival Campbell in a mid-week matinee at Gore Arena.

Tip-off for the Seahawks and Camels will be at 11:45 a.m. as Campbell will welcome local elementary schools to the 3,095-seat facility to watch the game.

The Seahawks improved to 1-2 on the young season with a 65-62 triumph over visiting Northern Kentucky on Saturday. Junior Kelva Atkins established a new career high with 28 points and freshman Brie Mobley added 13 to spark a Seahawks attack that shot 40.7 ( 22-of-54) percent from the floor and 87.5 percent (14-of-16) at the free-throw line. Freshman Ryan Flowers pulled down a team-high 13 rebounds to pace UNCW to a 44-27 advantage on the glass.

A native of Stem, N.C., Atkins has gotten off to a flying start in her junior campaign as she paces the team in scoring (19.7), rebounds (7.0) and assists (3.7). Mobley has also excelled in Head Coach Adell Harris’ lineup in the early going, reaching double figures in points in each of her first three games to become the first Seahawks rookie to accomplish that feat since Brittany Blackwell did so during her freshman season in 2007-08.

Campbell is off to a 2-1 start to the season with double-digit victories over Erskine (82-56) and Western Carolina (73-60) at home and an eight-point setback on the road to Wake Forest. Junior Kiera Gaines has been a force to be reckoned with thus far as she is averaging nearly a double-double with 16.0 points and 9.7 rebounds to pace the Camels in both categories.  Senior Roslyn Presley has provided scoring depth to veteran coach Wanda Watkins’ squad, averaging 13.7 points per game while sophomore RaeChun Edwards has served as the team’s primary playmaker with a team-high 16 assists.

Tuesday’s game serves as the 47th meeting between UNCW and Campbell and the sixth matchup since the 2000-01 season. The Camels hold a 30-16 edge in the all-time series that dates back to the 1973-74 campaign, but the Seahawks have won three straight, including a 79-73 victory in their last meeting on Dec. 10, 2011 in Wilmington.  

UNCW returns home after its contest against the Camels as it faces Tulane in a 7 p.m. contest Friday at Trask Coliseum.
