Nov. 18, 2000

Box Score

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Sophomore post player Kat Sungy (Arvada, Colo.) had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, but it was not enough as the Jacksonville University women's basketball team dropped its regular season opener to the Davidson College Wildcats, 62-46, Saturday evening in Swisher Gymnasium.

Sophomore forward Kami Hatcher (Westminster, Colo.) had nine points and seven rebounds and senior forward Angela Walker (Orlando, Fla.) had eight points and seven boards, but it was not enough to overcome poor shooting and poor ball handling as a team.

The Dolphins shot just 30.9 percent from the field and committed 30 turnovers in the loss, dropping to 0-1 on the young season. Davidson, meanwhile, jumped out to a 1-0 record in the Wildcats opened their season Saturday night as well.

JU trailed by just seven at halftime, 31-24, but it was all Davidson after the half. The Wildcats opened the second half with a 17-6 run to swell the lead to 17. JU cut the lead to 12 at the 8:15 mark on a jumper by Walker, but that is as close as the Dolphins could get. The Wildcat guard tandem of Janna Magette and Ashley Hallsted combined for 34 points and five assists en route to the win. Magette led the way with 19 points and four assists, and Kim Taylor paced the Wildcats with 10 rebounds.

The Dolphins return to action on Wednesday, Nov. 23 when they take on in-state rival Bethune-Cookman College at 7 p.m. in Swisher Gymnasium.
