Women's Hoops hosts Stetson on Thursday at 7 p.m. to kickoff "Think Pink" week

Jan. 24, 2007


After splitting its road contests last week, the JU women's basketball team will return to the friendly confines of Swisher Gymnasium for "Think Pink" week as the Dolphins host Stetson on Thursday at 7 p.m.

Hoops for Hope
The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) has encouraged its membership, all coaching staff and game day support staff to help unify the women's basketball world in a show of support for all coaches who are battling cancer throughout the weekend of January 26-28.
To show its support, the JU athletic staff will wear pink "Hoops for Hope" T-shirts for both contests at Swisher Gymnasium. Fans are encouraged to wear pink to each game to help educate, create awareness and motivate everyone to learn about cancer prevention.
The "Think Pink" campaign is in support of North Carolina State head coach Kay Yow, who will return to the bench on Jan. 28 after taking a leave of absence to battle breast cancer.

Dunn close to first milestone
Head coach Jill Dunn has five years of head coaching experience under her belt (3 - JU , 2 - Western Carolina) and is reaching her first coaching milestone.
With one more win, Dunn will reach 50 career victories. She is also on pace to win the most games in one season, with her highest win total being 12 with the Lady Catamounts in 1999-00. Along those same lines, she is also on pace to set the JU program record for wins in a season (13), which was set by the 2000-01 squad.

The Dolphins are 7-1 at home to start the year, which is also the best start in program history. The most home wins in a season is seven, which was compiled last year when JU went 7-6.
After defeating Kennesaw State on Jan. 18, the Dolphins tallied a season-high five-game winning streak, the second longest in program history. The longest overall winning streak all time is six games (2000-01).
With the Dolphins' win against UNF on Jan. 13, JU recorded two four-game winning streaks in the same season for the first time in program history. JU started the season off on a good note by winning its first four games of the season. The hot start was the best by the Dolphins in program history and marked the first four-game winning streak since 2001.
