WILMINGTON, North Carolina - The UNCW women’s basketball team returns home Thursday to host William & Mary in a 7 p.m. contest at Trask Coliseum.

 

The game is being televised as part of the Colonial Athletic Association’s television package and can be seen on a variety of networks, including Comcast Sportsnet and WECT in the Wilmington market.   

 

The Seahawks (2-16; 1-3 CAA) are back in action after halting a 14-game losing skid with a 54-53 victory at Towson on Jan. 19. Junior Kelva Atkins scored 21 points and freshman Brie Mobley added 15 to guide the Seahawks to the one-point victory in a game that featured a total of seven ties and eight lead changes and saw neither team led by more than six points during the contest.  

 

UNCW had one of its better defensive performances of the season against the Tigers as it limited Towson to just 35.3 percent shooting, including a 7-of-26 effort (.269) from the floor in the second half. The 53 points scored by the Tigers also represented a season-low for a Seahawk opponent this season.

 

William & Mary (3-12; 0-3 CAA) returns to action Thursday for the first time since suffering a 89-49 setback to league co-leader Drexel Jan. 16. Senior Kaitlyn Mathieu (12.2 ppg) backs a balanced Tribe attack that features four players in double figures as freshman Marlena Tremba (11.9 ppg) and juniors Kyla Kerstetter (11.3 ppg) and Jazmen Boone (10.5 ppg) all rank among the top 20 players in the league in scoring.  Defensively, Mathieu sits eighth in the league in rebounds (7.5) while Boone and Kerstetter are tied for first place on the circuit in steals (2.5).   

 

Thursday’s game marks the 61st meeting between UNCW and William & Mary in a series that dates back to the 1981-82 season. The Tribe holds a slim 31-29 edge in the series, but the Seahawks have won eight of the last nine meetings.

 

UNCW has fashioned an 18-9 mark against William & Mary at home during the 32-year rivalry. The Seahawks have won four of the last five meetings against the Tribe at Trask Coliseum, but fell in their most recent home matchup, suffering a 63-61 setback on Jan. 31, 2013.           

 

UNCW completes a two-game homestand Sunday as it entertains preseason favorite James Madison in a 2 p.m. matinee at Trask.
