WILMINGTON, North Carolina - The UNCW women’s basketball team wraps up a three-game homestand Tuesday with a Noon matinee against Appalachian State at Trask Coliseum.

The Seahawks (1-11) will look to end the 2013 calendar year on a high note after falling to visiting Florida Atlantic, 81-64, on Sunday. Junior Kelva Atkins scoured a game-high 18 points to lead a balanced Seahawk attack that saw four players reach double figures, but FAU knocked down 12 3-pointers to cruise to the 17-point victory. Freshman Brie Mobley chipped in 15 points while fellow newcomers Ryan Flowers and Naqaiyyah Teague added 12 and 10, respectively.

Appalachian State (2-8) makes their return to the court for the first time since suffering a 52-38 setback at Ohio State on Dec. 20. Junior Marayh Sydnor serves as the focal point of the Mountaineers lineup, leading the squad in scoring (21.1). Sydnor has shot 45.7 percent from the floor and 86.7 percent from the free-throw line in the early going. Sophomore KeKe Cooper ranks second on the team in scoring (9.6) and is first on the team in rebounding (8.4) while junior Katie Mallow is third in scoring (9.3) and first in assists (2.4).

Tuesday’s contest will serve as the seventh meeting between UNCW and Appalachian State, but just the third matchup since the 1994-95 season. The Mountaineers hold a 5-1 edge in the all-time series and won five straight in the series, including a 79-73 triumph over the Seahawks at Trask Coliseum in the first round of the Postseason WNIT on March 15, 2012.

Tuesday’s contest also marks the fourth of five contests against Tar Heel State competition for the Seahawks this season. UNCW has enjoyed moderate success against in-state opponents in recent years, compiling a 16-16 mark against state foes since the start of the 2007-08 season. The Seahawks are 0-3 this season versus in-state competition, falling to Elon (75-64), Campbell (67-53) and Wake Forest (68-44) thus far in non-conference play. 

UNCW closes out the non-conference portion of its 2013-14 schedule Friday when it rings in the New Year with a Noon contest at state foe Charlotte.
