Head coach Jill Dunn
Jill Dunn enters her third season as head coach of the Jacksonville University women's basketball program.
Prior to JU, Dunn spent three years helping Georgia State to three consecutive A-Sun Conference titles from 2001-04. Before joining Georgia State, Dunn was the top assistant coach at Miami University (Ohio), during the 2000-01 season.
Prior to her one-year stint in Miami, Dunn served as the head coach at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, N.C., from 1998-00. In her final season with the program, the Lady Catamounts posted 12 wins which was the most in 15 seasons at WCU.
Before being elevated to the head spot at Western Carolina, she was the top assistant coach during the 1997-98 campaign. Dunn's coaching career began at the University of South Carolina, where she was as an assistant coach from 1994-97.
Dunn's success began as a player at Georgia Southern, where she was a three-year starter from 1989-93. She was named to the Georgia Southern Hall of Fame on Nov. 4.

Williams named A-Sun POW
Proving last season wasn't a fluke, junior forward Ashley Williams set the program record for points in a game by tallying 32 at Charleston Southern on Nov. 13. A preseason all-conference selection, Williams made 14-of-16 shots from the floor (.875) and connected on 4-of-4 shots from the free-throw line. She also led the squad with five steals.
Williams followed that effort with a game- high 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field to go along with seven rebounds on Nov. 17 against South Carolina State.
For her efforts, she was named A-Sun Player of the Week for the third time in her career on Nov. 20.
On Nov. 21 against UCF, Williams racked up a game-high 21 points on 9-of-15 shooting from the floor.

A Sidekick in the Making
Sophomore guard Virginia Gregoire possesses the most untapped potential and is beginning to develop into the perfect compliment to junior forward Ashley Williams.
In three games, Gregoire is second on the squad with 14 points per contest, third with 5.7 rebounds and leads the team with 6.3 assists per game. She is also one the Dolphins' top three-point threats with a 6-for-13 effort (.462) from beyond the arc.

Dolphin Notables
Sophomore guard Regina Omoite is starting to find her range after posting a season-high 13 points, including a 3-for-6 effort from 3-point territory, against UCF.
Freshman forward/center Danielle Gray has proven to be the enforcer inside for the Dolphins. She currently leads the squad with eight rebounds per contest.
