Seahawks update with UNCW's Jimmy Bass

READ MORE: Seahawks update with UNCW's Jimmy Bass

WILMINGTON,NC (WWAY) -- Other than the losing record for the UNCW men's basketball team and the squad's recent post-season ban from the NCAA it's been a very good year for Seahawk sports according to UNCW director of athletics Jimmy Bass. " We won four conference championships in the Colonial Athletic Association", Bass said. "That's the most of any other school. James Madison ended up with three. We had five coaches named CAA coach of the year. We had two student athletes named the top scholar athlete in their respective sports."

With three CAA universities leaving the conference soon(Old Dominion, Georgia State and VCU) now is the time to re-stock for expansion purposes. "There's no secret. Word has gotten out the College of Charleston has an invitation on the table. There's speculation among the media about Davidson and Appalachian State and there's been talk about other programs in the north. Stony Brook has an interest."

On a different topic there's apparently no interest from the NBA Charlotte Bobcats to return to Trask Colisum for training camp. The team was here last in the fall of 2010. " Nobody from any professional organization has called UNCW about training facilities. We would certainly not discourage it, but nobody has contacted us."
