SEAHAWK SPORTS

SEAHAWKS EXTINGUISH DRAGONS 51-43

Keith Rendleman's desperation bank shot in the lane with just over a minute left to play gave UNCW the lead for good and the Seahawks went on to outslug  Drexel, 51-43, in a defensive-minded Colonial Athletic Association men's basketball game Feb.15 at Trask Coliseum.

 

SEAHAWKS REMAIN RANKED IN POLL

The women's basketball team moved down two spots to 22nd in the most recent Collegeinsider.com Women's Mid-Major Top 25 Poll, released Feb. 15. Ranked for the fifth straight week and the sixth time overall this season, the Seahawks posted a 1-1 mark last week as they completed a three-game road swing with a 72-48 victory over William & Mary and a 68-60 setback at Old Dominion.
