2018-19 Women's Basketball Thread
The Seahawk Ladies are off to a 4-1 start (3-1 vs D-I) after an 89-82 road victory over NC Central last night.

Our only loss so far was a 95-72 drubbing on the road at the hands of a currently undefeated Ohio U. squad back on Nov 11, with our other wins coming against non D-I Belmont Abbey, Presbyterian College, and Grand Canyon.

The combined record of the three D-I teams we beat is 2-10, so we haven't learned a ton about what the team is capable of just yet. Next up is a tough road game against 3-1 VCU on Nov 28.

Rutgers transfer shooting guard Shrita Parker has been lighting up the scoreboard with the Hawks, leading the team in scoring with 20.4 points per game. She's shooting .551 from the field and 12-20 (.600) from the perimeter, while also dishing out 3.8 assists and swiping 2.8 steals per game.

Another transfer, former ODU Monarch GiGi Smith, is also playing quality ball, and at 5-10 has helped allow the Hawks to roll with a lot of 4-guard lineups. She's second on the team in scoring at 15.2 ppg, shooting .438 from the field, and also has 4.6 rebounds per game.

Working her way into the starting lineup, sophomore big Paige Powell is dominating on the glass, averaging 8.6 rebounds per contest while also demonstrating much better offense than she did as a freshman, averaging 8.4 points per game. She's also doing a solid job in rim protection, with 5 blocks in 5 games.

Other key returners from last year, Lacey Suggs (8.4 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 3.0 spg), Timber Tate (7.0 ppg, 3.4 rpg .391 3-pt %), Moriah Crisp (3.2 ppg, 3.0 apg, 2.5 A/TO) and Chinyere Bell (6.8 ppg, 3.3 rpg, .733 FG %) are all making solid contributions, though they're being relied on much less than last season. Tate, especially, has seen her role reduced compared to last season, when she started 28 games and averaged 25.4 minutes per game. She's been moved to a role off the bench in the early going, averaging 17.0 minutes per game.

With the emergence of new additions Smith and Parker, as well as the contributions of JUCO transfer guard Ahyiona Vason (5.0 ppg, 2.2 apg) and another Rutgers transfer guard Ashli Jeune (1.2 ppg, 10.4 mpg) off the bench, the Seahawks have a much deeper roster than last season. The losses of Jenny DeGraaf, Madison Raque and Rebekah Banks certainly have been felt, but this year's team definitely appears to be better than the 2017-18 squad that finished 12-19 and 4-14 in CAA games.

RE: 2018-19 Women's Basketball Thread
Parker is tied for 36th in the nation in scoring. She's also tied for 74th in FG %.

Powell is 7th in the nation in Offensive Rebounds per Game, with 5.6 per contest.

Also, if Bell had enough attempts to be eligible, her .733 FG % would rank 4th in the nation.

RE: 2018-19 Women's Basketball Thread
After an 8-day layoff, the Ladies visit VCU tonight at 6. Much like the Men's team's upcoming slate, this will be another tough non-conference test, and begins a stretch where 3 of our next 4 games are tough games on the road (@ VCU, @ UNC, @ Pittsburgh).

VCU sits at 4-2 on the season, with their average margin of victory an impressive +12.2. The Rams beat W&M on the road by 17, Longwood by 29, Wake Forest by 13 and Weber State by 28, with their losses coming against 5-2 UNC and a 4-1 IUPUI squad.

The Lady Hawks return home on Saturday to start a Women's/Men's doubleheader. They take on non-DI Fayetteville St. at 2 PM before the Men's game with Davidson at 7.

24-20 VCU at the half. Looks like an ugly game.

RE: 2018-19 Women's Basketball Thread
All things considered, not a bad effort up in Richmond in a 58-47 loss. We had an extremely inefficient shooting night (25.4 % from the field, 15.8 % from 3), with only Suggs (5-11, 1-2 from 3) knocking down with any consistency. But despite this, we still kept the game within reason because we drew fouls and hit our free throws. We were 12-14 from the stripe, led by Parker's 7-8.

We also forced 18 VCU turnovers, including 9 team steals, while only giving it away 10 times. And we held the Rams to 3-15 (20 %) shooting from the perimeter.

Lot's of good things to like about this team.

To continue my inability to comprehend, I initially read this as “we had an extremely efficient shooting night...” followed by some of the worst efficiency numbers I’ve ever seen.

I found a brewery within walking distance of the hotel. Had a few already and about to head back for the freebies.

That’s a fair assessment.

The Lady Seahawks face the Lady Tarheels today at 3:30 prior to the Men's 9 PM showdown.

Women's Hoops Preview: North Carolina

WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Before the UNCW women's basketball team takes a break for fall semester exams, the Seahawks will have one final adjudication on the hardwood when they visit Carmichael Arena on Wednesday for a 3:30 p.m. tilt against the Tar Heels.

Wednesday's game can be heard in Wilmington on 95.9 FM The Breeze or online via the Seahawk Digital Network by going to UNCWSports.com/SDN. In addition, live stats will be available at UNCWStats.com.

UNCW carries a 5-2 record into the matinee on Wednesday after earning its fourth win in the last five games with a 72-54 victory over Fayetteville State on Saturday. Redshirt senior guard Shrita Parker netted a game-high 27 points to anchor three Seahawks in double figures as redshirt junior guard GiGi Smith added 14 points to go with a double-double of 12 points and 10 rebounds from sophomore forward Paige Powell.

North Carolina, 5-4 on the season, has dropped three consecutive games after suffering an 85-73 setback against Maine on Sunday afternoon inside Carmichael Arena. The Tar Heels were outscored by a 26-14 margin in the second quarter and were never able to recover as the Black Bears earned their first-ever win over UNC.

Wednesday's Starting Five

Series Business – North Carolina has won both previous meetings against the Seahawks, including an 86-60 verdict in last year's encounter at Carmichael Arena.

This Looks Familiar – The Seahawks spent the first week of practice at Carmichael Arena after Hurricane Florence forced UNCW to close for nearly a month.

Family Reunion – Former UNCW letter winner Bett Shelby is a member of Coach Sylvia Hatchell's staff at North Carolina. Shelby played in 11 games for the Seahawks from 2002-04 before transferring to Greensboro College.

Afternoon Delight – Five of the Seahawks' first seven games this season have been afternoon affairs.

Road Warrior – Redshirt senior guard Shrita Parker has averaged 25.3 points per game in the Seahawks' three road contests this year, including a career-high 36 points against N.C. Central on Nov. 20.

Up Next: The Seahawks take a break for fall semester exams before facing another ACC foe on Tuesday, Dec. 18, with a visit to Pittsburgh.
