JU’S LAST OUTING: SWEEPING RIVER CITY RUMBLE
In her first start of the 2013-14 season, Jade Cargill registered her third double-double on 24 points and 14 rebounds in the Dolphins 66-51 victory over North Florida last Saturday. The Dolphins had not swept the series since the 2008-09 season.
CAREER STAT UPDATE
PROTECTING THE ROCK
Not only have players been scoring more in Atlantic Sun games but as a team they are more cognizant of protecting the ball. After starting the season averaging around 21 turnovers a game, the Fins have recorded 15 or less in six of their 10 conference contests.
Despite holding the second best scoring offense in the conference, the Lady Bisons are still in search of their first A-Sun and home win of the season. Redshirt-sophomore guard Danay Fothergill directs the squad with 19.2 points per game while redshirt-sophomore forward Ashley Southern is recording 15.1 PPG to go alongside 11.9 RPG.
Jacksonville continues its road swing when they pay Northern Kentucky a visit on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 8 p.m.
