WILMINGTON, North Carolina - The UNCW women’s basketball team takes to the road for the first time in conference play on Friday as it travels to defending champion Delaware for a 7 p.m. contest at the Bob Carpenter Center.

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

The Seahawks (1-15; 0-2 CAA) fell in their most recent outing, suffering a 64-55 setback to visiting Hofstra on Jan. 12. Freshman Brie Mobley established a new season high with 24 points, but the Pride shot 52.3 percent from the floor to spoil Mobley’s performance and record the nine-point victory. Mobley was the only UNCW player to reach double figures as freshman Johanna McMillan chipped in eight points and three players – junior Kelva Atkins and freshmen Ryan Flowers and Naqaiyyah Teague – finished with six points apiece.

Mobley has gotten off to a torrid start in conference play, knocking down 22-of-35 field goal attempts (.629) on her way to 44 points through the first two CAA contests. The Winter Haven, Fla., product was named CAA Rookie-of-the-Week on Monday, becoming the first UNCW player to earn weekly honors from the league this season.

The Blue Hens (10-4; 2-1 CAA) head into Friday’s matchup looking to erase the taste of a 87-51 setback at league-leading James Madison on Sunday that halted a 44-game conference winning streak for coach Tina Martin’s squad. Senior Kelsey Buchanan has emerged as the go-to player for Delaware since the departure of three-time CAA Player-of-the-Year Elena Delle Donne, averaging a team-best 17.1 points and 8.5 rebounds per contest. Freshman Erika Brown ranks second on the squad in scoring (9.6) while senior Akeema Richards paces the lineup in assists (2.4).

Friday’s contest marks the 26th meeting between Delaware and UNCW. The Blue Hens hold an 18-7 advantage in the all-time series as they have won each of the last six meetings between the two programs. Delaware claimed both meetings last season, posting a 67-39 decision in their only regular season meeting at the Bob Carpenter Center on Jan. 24 before rallying from a five-point halftime deficit for a 51-43 victory in the quarterfinals of the CAA Women’s Basketball Championship on March 15. 

UNCW wraps up its two-game road trip Sunday with a 2 p.m. matinee against Towson at the brand-new SECU Arena.
