WILMINGTON, North Carolina - The UNCW women’s basketball team heads back on the road Friday as it visits the Empire State for a 7 p.m. contest against Hofstra at the Mack Sports Complex.

The Seahawks (3-17; 2-4 CAA) eye a return to the win column after seeing their two-game winning streak halted in a 77-41 setback to league-leading James Madison Sunday at Trask Coliseum. Junior Kelva Atkins scored 15 points to highlight a Seahawks attack that shot just 28.8 percent from the floor and was limited to a season-low 41 points. Atkins also added six rebounds and four steals while freshman D'Asia Cain nearly joined her in double figures as she chipped in nine points.

Freshman Ryan Flowers finished with six rebounds and four points against the Dukes to cap a solid week that saw her average 13.0 rebounds and 10.5 points per contest. The Hickory, N.C. native, who established season highs with 17 points and 20 rebounds against William & Mary on Jan. 23, was named CAA Rookie-of-the-Week on Monday for her efforts. Flowers is the second UNCW player in the past three weeks to earn the honor, joining fellow newcomer Brie Mobley, who was recognized on Jan. 13.

Hofstra (7-10; 2-4 CAA) will take to the floor on Friday for the first time since posting a 65-55 victory at Northeastern on Jan. 23. Senior Anma Onyeuku, who finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds in the Pride’s 64-55 victory over the Seahawks on Jan. 12 at Trask Coliseum, continues to pace Head Coach Krista Kilburn-Steveskey’s squad in both scoring (12.1) and rebounding (6.9).  Senior guard Annie Payton has remained productive from her reserve role, chipping in 9.9 points to rank second on the team in that category. Freshman Krystal Luciano has emerged as the team’s primary playmaker, averaging a team-high 2.9 assists to go along with 6.2 points per contest.

Friday’s contest marks the 26th meeting between Hofstra and UNCW. All 25 previous contests have come since the Pride joined the CAA for the 2001-02 season. The Pride has won four of the last five matchups, including its nine-point victory on Jan. 12 that saw it shoot 61.1 percent from the floor against the Seahawks in the second half, to take a 13-12 lead in the all-time series. 

UNCW completes its two-game road swing Sunday with a 2 p.m. matinee against Northeastern at the Cabot Center.
