Lady Hawks defeat N C Central 89-63. It was a more exciting game than the score indicates. Timber Tate hits her first four 3 point attempts. And both teams were playing a physical style of game. Our ladies didn't back down.

Our most impressive win is against ECU/VCU, but 5-3 seems like an improvement over years past. Disappointing loss to Coastal and weren't competitive against Carolina. How do we stack up in conference play?

I don't follow closely either, but it certainly feels like a big improvement(at least on the surface).

I have to agree, like others I've never followed the women's program closely, but having a winning record going into conference play sounds (albeit without a lot of knowledge here) like a better start than usual for sure.

Well, we're 5-0 at home but 0-3 on the road. So of course we need to start winning away from Trask. But that will come.

We definitely look like a team capable of winning CAA games. We have more offensive firepower than I've seen in years. We've got solid distributors who can penetrate and dish (Crisp and Sacco), rangy shooters (Tate, Raque and DeGraaf) and slashers (Suggs especially). And our defensive intensity has been high and occasionally suffocating. Yesterday, we took three charges in one quarter, if I recall correctly.

3 of our next 4 are on the road, including the CAA opener against Elon, so we'll have a better idea where we stand when the calendar moves closer to January.

Tate Named CAA Player-of-the-Week

RICHMOND, Virginia – UNCW sophomore guard Timber Tate has been named Colonial Athletic Association Women's Basketball Player-of-the-Week for the week ending Dec. 3.

Tate, who earns the first Player-of-the-Week honor of her career, led the Seahawks to wins over VCU and N.C. Central by averaging 18.0 points per game. The Thomasville, N.C., product shot a blistering 63.2 percent from the field, including a 10-for-14 effort from three-point range, in the two victories.

In addition, the sharpshooting sophomore eclipsed her career single-game scoring high in both games. After scoring 16 points in the Seahawks' 83-67 win over VCU, Tate erupted for 20 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field, including a 6-for-8 showing from long range, against NCCU.

"Timber had an outstanding week for us and has helped us get off to a great start by playing well on both ends of the floor," Coach Karen Barefoot said. "This is great recognition for Timber and our program and we look forward to what's ahead for our team."

A starter in all eight games, Tate is the Seahawks' fourth-leading scorer with a 9.9 average and has connected on 36.5 percent of her three-point field goal attempts.

UNCW, off to a 5-3 start, returns from its fall semester exam break on Saturday, Dec. 9, to face Pittsburgh at 1 p.m. in a non-conference road contest.

Didn't get a chance to watch/follow this one but despite the 74-55 final against Pitt, there appeared to be some positives. Most notably, 6-0 forward and George Mason transfer Chinyere Bell saw her first action of the season and made the most of it. 15 points, 5 boards, and went 7-10 from the line in 20 minutes of action.

Bell did commit 4 turnovers though, part of the team's 18 total turnovers on the day. We also only had 7 assists as a team, and our low foul count (7 total team fouls) tells me needed to be a little more aggressive on the defensive end. When a team is scoring on the inside like Pitt was (32 of their 74 points were from within the paint), you need to "use your fouls" a bit and make them earn it at the line more often. No one on our squad ended up with more than 2 fouls, so no one on our roster really needed to be protected late in the game.

Next up is another road contest against Wofford on Saturday night. The Terriers are having a very similar season as us, numbers-wise. Both us and Wofford are 3-4 against D-I competition, with our RPI sitting at 248 and Wofford's 247. We also each have wins over a common opponent, NC Central.
