WILMINGTON, North Carolina -The UNCW women’s basketball team renews acquaintances with long-time rival Richmond Saturday in a 2 p.m. matinee at the Robins Center.

The Seahawks (1-7) are back in action for the first time in a week after closing out the Cancun Challenge with a 102-65 setback to Mayan Division champion Iowa on Nov. 30.

Junior Kelva Atkins once again led the UNCW attack, scoring 19 points, dishing out a career-high seven assists and adding five steals in an all-around performance. Atkins was named to the All-Tournament Team at the Cancun Challenge as she paced the Seahawks during the three-game event with 21.0 points, 5.3 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 3.0 steals per game. Freshman Ryan Flowers also had a solid finish to the Cancun Challenge, posting a season-high 12 points while also adding a game-best 12 rebounds against the Hawkeyes to record her first career double-double.

Richmond (3-5) enters Saturday’s matchup looking to rebound from a 76-61 setback at Liberty on Tuesday. Redshirt junior Genevieve Okoro highlights a balanced Spider lineup that features five players averaging seven or more points per contest with a 10.4 points per game scoring clip. Okoro also leads Richmond’s rebounding efforts, pulling down a team-best 64 total rebounds (8.0 RPG), including 27 caroms on the offensive end. Freshman Olivia Healy has had little trouble adjusting to the college game as she leads the team in assists (2.3) and ranks second in both scoring (10.1) and steals (1.9).  

The Seahawks and Spiders are meeting for the 41st time on Saturday. Richmond holds a 30-10 lead in the series that dates back to the early days of the Colonial Athletic Association and has won three of the last four matchups, including a 53-42 triumph last December at Trask Coliseum. UNCW was victorious in its last visit to the Robins Center, posting a 63-54 victory over Richmond in the 2011 Postseason WNIT.

UNCW returns to action Dec. 16 as it faces its third Atlantic Coast Conference opponent of the season with a 7 p.m. contest at Wake Forest.
