WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -– Junior forward Kierra Haney made several key baskets down the stretch to lift UNC Pembroke past UNCW, 64-60, , in a preseason women’s basketball game Monday night at Trask Coliseum.

The contest was the lone tune-up on the schedule for Seahawks and second-year Head Coach Adell Harris, who travel to No. 6 Notre Dame on Friday for the 2013-14 season opener.

Haney led three Braves in double figures with 13 points and added 13 rebounds in 37 minutes. Sophomore guard Chandrica Fuller chipped in 12 points and junior guard Avae Hardy had 10 for UNCP, coached by former Seahawk men’s hoops standout John Haskins.

The Seahawks, who started four freshmen and one junior, were led by newcomer Brie Mobley ‘s monster game of 18 points and 13 boards in her unofficial collegiate debut. Junior playmaker Kelva Atkins and freshman Amber Reeves scored 13 apiece for UNCW.

Both teams struggled offensively early before heating up in the second half and battling close down the wire.

Trailing 39-27 at intermission, UNCW used a 25-6 run early in the final period to grab a 52-50 advantage with just over seven minutes left before Haney put the Braves on her back.

The Tabor City, N.C., product converted three critical buckets in the paint in the final minutes to enable UNCP to win for the first time in first time in eight exhibition tries against the Seahawks. The Braves used a commanding 57-40 advantage on the boards to overcome 19 turnovers in the contest.

Trailing 17-16 midway through the first half, UNCP regrouped and a 3-pointer by Jasmine Huntley sparked the Braves to a 23-10 run gave the Braves a 39-27 advantage at the break.

UNCP scored the first five points of the second half to expand its lead to 17 points before the Seahawks battled back. Atkins scored on a layup to start a string of 14 unanswered points as part of a 25-6 run that lasted nearly nine and a half minutes and put the Seahawks in front, 52-50, with 7:18 on the clock.

The Braves wound up shooting 35.7 percent from the floor in the game, compared to 28.4 percent for the Seahawks.

UNCP kicks off its regular season on Nov. 11 with a 7 p.m. matchup against Winthrop.


WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -– After playing key roles in UNCW’s sweep of its weekend matches, sophomore Meredith Peacock and freshman Nicole Lott were recognized by the Colonial Athletic Association on Monday.

Peacock was honored as Co-Defensive Player-of-the-Week along with William & Mary’s Carolyn Albright while Lott garnered Rookie-of-the-Week accolades for the third time this season.

“Our entire team overall had another outstanding performance this past weekend and everyone played with tremendous effort and enthusiasm,” said UNCW Head Coach Amy Bambenek. “Both Meredith and Nicole played a huge part in our offensive and defensive success.”

Both players were instrumental in leading UNCW to 3-0 victories over Towson and Delaware last weekend at Hanover Hall that moved the Seahawks to 8-1 at home this season.

Peacock averaged 2.17 blocks and 1.50 kills per set as she paced a Seahawks blocking effort that averaged 3.83 blocks per set. The Charlotte, N.C., product opened the weekend by notching seven total blocks (two solo) and five kills against Towson and followed that performance with six block assists and four kills versus Delaware.

Bambenek said, “Meredith has been a constant blocker all season, but I’m sure this will be a very memorable weekend for her because Meredith’s blocking secured match points against both Towson and Delaware.”

Lott, meanwhile, averaged 4.67 kills and 1.83 digs per set and fashioned a .444 hitting percentage to help Seahawks post a hitting percentage above .300 in both of its matches. A native of Westchester, Pa., Lott notched a match-high 16 kills and .406 hitting percentage against Towson before tallying 12 kills on the strength of a .500 attack clip versus Delaware. Lott also chipped in nine digs against the Blue Hens to finish just shy of a double-double.

Bambenek added, “It’s rare for a freshman to attack at such a high efficiency, but Nicole played fearless all weekend and adjusted well to every situation.”

UNCW (16-8; 5-5 CAA) returns to action this week as it closes out the home portion of its 2013 schedule with matches against Northeastern (Nov. 8) and Hofstra (Nov. 10).


WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -– Buoyed by an impressive two-goal outing against nationally-ranked William & Mary, UNCW red-shirt sophomore David Sizemore was named Colonial Athletic Association Co-Player-of-the-Week on Monday by the league office.

For Sizemore, it’s his first career CAA Player-of-the-Week honor and the second for the Seahawks this season. Sophomore striker Colin Bonner earned the distinction in the first week of the season after scoring twice in a season-opening win at Ohio State and earning tournament most valuable honors.

Last week, freshman Sean Melvin was named CAA Rookie-of-the-Week after helping the Seahawks to wins over nationally-ranked UNC Chapel Hill and Delaware.

Sizemore struck in the sixth minute against the Tribe to give UNCW an early 1-0 lead. His shot came from distance and dipped under the crossbar for the opening goal. His second strike was just as impressive as he notched his fourth goal of the season off a free kick from 25 yards out to give UNCW a 2-1 lead.

With the two-goal outing, Sizemore moved into the team-lead with four goals and is tied for second on the squad with eight points.

The Seahawks host rival Northeastern on Wednesday in the regular season finale for both teams. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.


GREEN BAY, WI (AP) – Josh McCown won the battle of the backups after Aaron Rodgers was hurt, getting lots of help from Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte to give the Chicago Bears a 27-20 win over the Green Bay Packers on Monday night.

The victory snapped Green Bay’s six-game winning streak over its NFC North rival. But of far larger concern is the health of Rodgers, who hurt his left, non-throwing shoulder when he was sacked on the game’s first series by Shea McClellin. Rodgers took a few warm-up throws but, after being examined by medical staff, he ran into the Green Bay locker room. He wasn’t seen again until midway through the third quarter.

With Rodgers out, the Bears (5-3) took advantage of the Packers (5-3). Marshall had seven catches for 107 yards and a touchdown, and Forte ran for 125 yards and another score.
