WILMINGTON, NC ( UNCW news release ) -- Preseason practice is already under way, but second-year UNCW women's basketball coach Cynthia Cooper-Dyke took time late Thursday afternoon to introduce her team to members of the area news media who cover the Seahawks.
With renovations to Trask Coliseum nearly complete, the players, coaches and staff assembled on the front steps of the arena, where university photographer Jamie Moncrief staged a team photo. The group then proceeded to the Golden Hawk Room for an interview session with print and electronic media.
Coach Cooper-Dyke and her club will appear at Friday's Midnite Madness before resuming practice in preparation for their first exhibition contest on Wednesday, Nov. 2, against Johnson C. Smith at Trask Coliseum.
