WILMINGTON, North Carolina - The UNCW women’s basketball team plays its final home game of the season on Sunday as it welcomes Towson to Trask Coliseum for a 2 p.m. CAA matinee.

Sunday’s home finale will serve as the program’s senior day, with the team holding a pregame ceremony to honor student-athlete Diana Venezia and manager Steven Rhodes. The team will also hold a special halftime ceremony to honor former standout Gwen Austin, who will become the first player in program history to have her jersey retired.

The Seahawks (3-24; 2-11 CAA) enter Sunday’s home finale looking to halt a losing skid that reached eight games with a 67-53 setback to league newcomer College of Charleston on Thursday. Freshman Brie Mobley poured in 21 points and junior Kelva Atkins added 18 for UNCW, but the Cougars closed the game on a 20-8 run to pull away. Atkins also added a career-high 15 rebounds to post her first career double-double while freshman Ryan Flowers led all players with 16 caroms.

Towson (12-14; 6-7) heads into Sunday’s matchup looking to build off a 75-69 victory over William & Mary on Thursday that halted a three-game losing skid. Do-it-all senior forward Tanshia McTiler continues to serve as the focal point of the Tigers attack as she leads the CAA in scoring (18.7 PPG) and ranks among the top 20 players in the league in rebounds (7.4/9th), assists (2.2/14th) and steals (2.3/2nd). Junior LaTorri Hines-Allen leads the team in rebounding (8.0) and ranks second on the squad in scoring (13.8) while sophomore Dominque Johnson sits third in scoring (10.5) and leads the team in assists (3.8)   

Sunday’s contest marks the 24th meeting between UNCW and Towson. All 23 previous matchups have come since the Tigers joined the CAA prior to the start of the 2001-02 season. UNCW has won seven of the last nine matchups against Towson to build a 14-9 edge in the series. The Seahawks won the first meeting of the season between the two programs, taking a 54-53 decision at the SECU Arena on Jan. 19.

UNCW returns to action Feb. 28 as it heads to Philadelphia for a 7 p.m. contest against Drexel.
