WILMINGTON, North Carolina - The UNCW women’s basketball team returns home Thursday as it welcomes conference newcomer College of Charleston to Trask Coliseum for a 7 p.m. contest.

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

The Seahawks (3-23; 2-10 CAA) return to action following a 97-44 setback at William & Mary on Sunday. Freshman guard Amber Reeves scored a career-high 14 points and junior point guard Kelva Atkins contributed 12 markers, but the Tribe shot a torrid 61.1 percent from the floor and forced UNCW into a season-high 29 turnovers to earn a split of the season series. Freshman Ryan Flowers grabbed 11 rebounds to lead all players in that category.

Currently a half-game in front of Hofstra for fourth place in the league standings, College of Charleston (13-12; 6-6 CAA) looks to make a late-season push following an 87-74 victory over the Pride Sunday at TD Arena. Senior tandem Alyssa Frye (14.3 PPG) and Afreyea Tolbert (14.1 PPG) have led the Cougars attack this season as the duo ranks sixth and seventh, respectively, in the league in scoring. Tolbert also factors heavily into the team’s rebounding efforts, ranking second in the league in caroms (8.9 RPG). Fellow senior Jillian Brown paces Head Coach Natasha Adair’s lineup with a league-leading 5.3 assists per game.

Thursday’s game marks the 13th overall meeting between UNCW and the College of Charleston and the first as Colonial Athletic Association foes. UNCW holds a 7-5 lead in the all-time series and has won five straight versus the Cougars, including a 66-47 victory in their last meeting on Nov. 19, 2007.

UNCW closes out the home portion of its schedule Sunday when it takes on Towson in a 2 p.m. matinee. The team will honor senior student-athlete Diana Venezia and student manager Steven Rhodes for their contributions prior to the game. Former standout Gwen Austin will also be recognized during Sunday’s contest as she her No. 23 jersey will be retired during a halftime ceremony.
