Hampton takes down UNCW in CAA showdown

Hampton University picked up a win over Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) opponent UNC-Wilmington on Sunday.

Hampton gave UNCW their sixth consecutive loss in a 38-34 contest at Hampton University Convocation Center on Sunday afternoon.

Dlayla Chakolis scored 13 points and grabbed six rebounds to lead the way for HU. As a whole, the Lady Pirates were less than impressive on the offensive side of the ball, scoring just 0.58 points per possession on 22% shooting from the field. Their shooting woes were alleviated by a relentless pursuit on the boards. Their 15 offensive rebounds led to nine big second-chance points.

Carrie Gross scored 11 points while Jayde Gamble added another eight to lead the way for UNCW. As a team, the Seahawks struggled to get things going offensively, scoring just 0.51 points per possession on 25% shooting from the field. It was a tough day from three-point range. The team’s shooters combined to go just 0-of-10 from deep.

HU’s win today put an end to its recent struggles. Next the team will face William & Mary, who is coming off a win of its own, on Jan. 20. On the other side, UNCW fell to 3-13 with the loss. The team will look for redemption in its next game against Elon, who is struggling as of late. That game is on Jan. 21.
