JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - After dropping four straight games, the JU women's basketball team will conclude its season-high five- game road trip against Bethune-Cookman (2-5) at M oore Gymnasium on Saturday, Dec. 16 at 2 p.m.

A Familiar Face Returns
After sitting out the final few weeks of the 2005-06 season and the first half of this year due to personal reasons, senior guard Nakina Alford has returned to the Dolphin lineup.
One of the top outside threats for the Dolphins, Alford finished last season ranked third on the squad with 7.9 points per contest. She also led the squad with 39 three-point baskets and a 33.3 percent clip from beyond the arc.

Streaking
JU started the season off on a good note by winning its first four games of the season. The feat was the best start by the Dolphins in program history and marked the first four-game winning streak since 2001.
The Dolphins are also 3-0 at Swisher Gymnasium to start the year, which is also the best start in program history. The longest winning streak at home for JU is six games (2000-01, 2005-06).
JU has lost its last four contests which is the longest losing streak since a six-game slide in 2005-06. The longest losing streak in the Jill Dunn era was eight during her first season with the program (2004-05).

Dolphin Notables
Freshman guard Courtney Jackson tallied a career-high 13 points, including a 3-for-5 effort form beyond the arc at Georiga Southern. Sophomore guard Virginia Gregoire racked up a game-high 16 points, seven rebounds and four steals at Georgia Southern. The Dolphins had four players record double-figure points for the third time this season. JU leads the Atlantic Sun Conference in scoring (68.9 ppg), field-goal percentage (.419), 3-point field goal percentage (.357) and assists (14.8 apg).
