WILMINGTON, North Carolina – The UNCW women’s basketball team opens Colonial Athletic Association play Thursday as it welcomes Northeastern to Trask Coliseum for a 7 p.m. contest.

Live stats and streaming video are available for the contest and can be accessed by clicking the respective links at the top of the page.

The Seahawks (1-13) begin their 29th season in the CAA Thursday looking to halt a losing skid that reached 11 games with a 78-57 setback at Charlotte on Jan. 3.

Freshman D’Asia Cain poured in a career-high 15 points for the Seahawks, who shot 41.2 percent from the floor but were unable to slow down a balanced 49ers attack that saw four players reach double figures. Cain was the only UNCW player to score in double digits as freshman Amber Reeves pitched in nine points while fellow newcomers Brie Mobley and Naqaiyyah Teague added eight points each. Junior Kelva Atkins was held to a season-low seven points as she had her streak of consecutive games in double figures halted at 19.

Like UNCW, Northeastern (6-7) also enters Thursday’s contest attempting to halt a losing skid that reached three games with a 75-66 loss to visiting Albany on Jan. 4.

Senior forward Jewel Tunstull, a Preseason First-Team All-CAA selection, continues to be the premier double-double threat in the CAA as she is averaging 15.2 points and a league-best 9.8 rebounds per outing. Tunstull posted her league-leading seventh double-double of the season with 23 points and 13 rebounds in the Huskies setback to the Great Danes.

Junior A’lece Mark, who leads the team in scoring (18.2), has reached double figures in all eight games played this season. Mark missed five games in December before rejoining the lineup against Albany, pouring in 18 points in her return.

Thursday’s contest marks the 14th meeting between Northeastern and UNCW. The Seahawks hold a 7-6 lead in the all-time series and have won five of the last six meetings, including a 68-64 road triumph at Solomon Court in their most recent meeting last March.

UNCW returns to action Sunday as they entertain Hofstra in a 1 p.m. CAA matinee at Trask Coliseum.
