Dolphins Fall To Lady Camels In TAAC Play

December 4, 1999

Jacksonville, Fla. - Jacksonville University (0-5, 0-2) dropped their second straight Trans America Athletic Conference women's basketball game by the score of 67-58 to Campbell (4-1, 1-0) in Swisher Gymnasium Saturday evening. The loss was the Dolphins fifth straight to open their inaugural season. Meanwhile, the preseason TAAC favorite Lady Camels bounced back from their only loss of the year earlier this week to ECU.

Leading the way for the Dolphins was junior Pam Evans with 13 points on 5-10 shooting from the floor. Classmates Angela Walker and Shannon Wynn added 12 points apiece for JU. Walker also recorded a career-high six steals for the Dolphins. After sitting out Jacksonville's first four games while recovering from off-season knee surgery, Wynn made a much anticipated debut for the Dolphins, hitting 2-4 from the floor, including 1-2 from beyond the arc, 7-9 from the free throw line, and pulling down a team-high six rebounds in 22 minutes of play. Freshman Kami Hatcher added a career-high nine points and four rebounds in 18 minutes of play for JU, while classmate Kat Sungy chipped in with seven points in her second start of the season.

Jill Cress paced the Lady Camels off the bench with 15 points, while preseason All-TAAC selection April Cromartie added 11 points and a team-high six rebounds before fouling out. Ten different Campbell players recorded points in the game, Carrie Emory and Sara Moore chipping in with eight points apiece.

The Dolphins will take a short break from games over the next week while the players complete fall exams. JU will return to action in Swisher Gymnasium on Wednesday, December 15th at 7:00 PM versus South Florida.
