Both Tribe basketball teams are setting their sights on March once again,
with talented seniors, powerful role players and experienced coaching staffs.
These six home games each provide interesting storylines — helping you get
the most from the hardwood. Learn more about each game on the Tribe Athletics website.
Men’s – Jan. 19
Sophomore Yohanny Dalembert is 6’8” of low post power for the Dukes. William & Mary rookie Nathan Knight ’20 will come off the bench to match up with him, but can step out for a solid jumpshot too.
Men’s – Jan. 28
The CAA anointed UNC-Wilmington as preseason favorites, but the Tribe was not far behind in third place. Sharpshooting senior guard Daniel Dixon ’17 is the perfect counterpoint for UNCW’s formidable Chris Flemmings.
Women’s – Jan. 29
Can JMU win four CAA titles in a row? Not if Marlena Tremba ’17 can help it. Her experience and scoring in the backcourt will be tremendous assets against the unanimous CAA Player of the Year, Precious Hall.
Men’s – Feb. 11 (Gold Rush)
Pack the Kap for the Gold Rush game, where Charleston’s preseason all-CAA first-team forward Jarrell Brantley will face off down low against the Tribe’s all-CAA Omar Prewitt ’17 in a battle for paint dominance.
Women’s – Feb. 24
Forward Alex Masaquel ’17 remains a mainstay of the Green and Gold interior attack, after racking up six double-doubles last year. UNCW’s glue is guard Jasmine Steele — Masaquel will have to watch the lanes and keep her from scoring.
Women’s – Feb. 17
The Cougars’ stopping power is anchored by Bre Bolden, who was Defensive Player of the Year last season. Look for Abby Rendle ’18 — who got the Tribe’s first triple-double last year — to bounce back from injury and grab some boards.
