Dolphins set for Senior Day on Saturday
Feb. 24, 2006
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - For the four seniors on the Jacksonville University men's basketball team, Saturday's game against Florida Atlantic is their last chance to end "The Streak."
When the game tips off at 3 p.m., Mario Brown, Aubrey Conerly, Matt Kampfe and Antonio Cool will be playing their final game in a JU uniform and their last chance to snap JU's school-record 23-game losing streak.
"I want these guys to go out and play their best and enjoy the game because it's their last game of their college career," said JU head coach Cliff Warren.
Brown has become more of an offensive presence for the Dolphins this season, averaging 8.2 points and leads the team in blocks with 28.
A three-year letterwinner for the Dolphins, Conerly is experiencing the best season of his JU career, setting new career highs in scoring, free throw shooting and assists. In starting every game this season, Conerly is averaging 13.1 points per game and has dished out 157 assists, the fourth highest total in a single-season ever at JU.
Conerly is also ranked in the top five in career free throw percentage and has one last chance to crack the school's top 10 on the all-time career assist list. This season, Conerly has scored in double figures 21 times and has dished out at least five assists 22 times.
A two-year letterwinner for the Dolphins, Cool has lived up to his name, being a cool customer on and off the floor.
The Dolphins leading scorer this season with an average of 15.5 points per game, Cool is among the league leaders in scoring as well as being one of the most deadly 3-point shooters in the A-Sun with 52 3-pointers made this season.
Cool is making a push for the top 10 list in career 3-pointers as well as 3-pointers in a season. He also has racked up more than 700 points in his two seasons at JU.
When you look up the word hustle in the dictionary, Kampfe's picture will be next to it.
One of the hardest working athletes at JU, Kampfe is a three-year letterwinner on both the football and basketball team.
A fan favorite, Kampfe's hard work and determination have paid off as he has started the last five games for JU.
