WILMINGTON, North Carolina - The UNCW women’s basketball team heads back on the road Thursday as it travels to league-leading James Madison for a 7 p.m. contest at the JMU Convocation Center.

The Seahawks (3-21; 2-8) saw their losing skid reach five games with a 57-43 setback to visiting Drexel on Sunday. Senior playmaker Kelva Atkins and freshman forward Ryan Flowers had 14 points each for the Seahawks, who shot just 33.3 percent (17-of-51) from the floor for the contest. Atkins also had nine rebounds, six assists and four steals in an all-around effort while Flowers snared eight rebounds.

Holding a three-game lead atop the CAA standings, James Madison (19-4; 9-0 CAA) heads into Thursday’s matchup winners of nine straight after an 82-40 dismantling of visiting Towson on Sunday. Senior Kirby Burkholder, the CAA’s preseason Player-of-the-Year, continues power the Dukes attack as she is averaging 18.1 points and 8.5 rebounds to pace a JMU lineup that leads the league in both scoring (75.2) and rebounding (44.2). Sophomore Precious Hall (13.7) and junior Toia Giggetts (13.1) have provided scoring depth for Head Coach Kenny Brooks roster while redshirt Jazmon Gwathmey paces highlights the team’s defensive efforts with a circuit-best 43 rejections (2.0).  

Sunday’s contest marks the 62nd meeting between UNCW and James Madison in a series that dates back to the 1984-85 season and early days of the Colonial Athletic Association.  The Dukes hold a 52-9 advantage in the all-time series and have won six straight against the Seahawks, including a 77-41 victory at Trask Coliseum on Jan. 26.  

UNCW’s 61 previous contests against James Madison represent the third highest number of contests against an opponent in program history. In fact, the Dukes are just one of four programs (George Mason (64) William & Mary (61), and East Carolina (54)) that the Seahawks have played on more than 50 occasions during their 41-year history.

UNCW wraps up a two-game road swing Sunday with a 2 p.m. matinee at William & Mary.
