After splitting two games on the road last weekend, the JU women's basketball team (13-8, 7-4 A-Sun) will conclude its latest road trip against UNF (5-15, 3- 7 A-Sun) on Saturday at 2 p.m. at UNF Arena for the final installment of the SunTrust River City Rumble.

Dolphins tie a program record
In the midst of their best season in program history, JU tied the most wins in a season (13) with a victory over Campbell on Feb. 3.

Dolphins double up again
In the midst of the program's best season, the 2006-07 Dolphins have set a new standard. For the first time in program history (1999- present), JU has won at least 10 games in back-to- back seasons.

Game changer
Sophomore guard Virginia Gregoire possesses the most untapped potential and is beginning to develop into one of the most dynamic players in the A-Sun Conference.
In 21 games, Gregoire is second on the squad with 14.0 points, leads the Dolphins with 41 steals, 39 three pointers and is second with an average of 5.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists per game. In the conference, she ranks fourth in scoring.
Gregoire tallied her first double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds) against Charleston Southern on Nov. 25. She came close to the program's first triple- double (17 points, nine rebounds, eight assists) against Campbell on Jan. 6.
Against Campbell, Gregoire scored a career- high 23 points after shooting 9-of-18 from the field, including a 3-of-6 effort from beyond the arc.

A steady force
Since being named A-Sun "Player of the Week" on Nov. 20, junior forward Ashley Williams has become a target for opposing defenses.
In her first four games, Williams averaged 22.3 points per contest and was shooting 63.8 percent from the floor (37-58).
In her next eight contests, Williams averaged 12.4 points and shot 42 percent from the field (42-100). She finished below 10 points in two consecutive games for the first time in her career.
In her last four games, the Dolphins are doing a better job of getting her more touches and she is getting back into a grove again.
During that span, she is averaging 18.3 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 1.5 blocks while shooting 51 percent from the floor (29-57) and 83 percent from the line (15-18).
Williams also earned her fourth A- Sun "Player of the Week" honors on Jan. 29.

Dolphin Notables JU leads the conference in field-goal percentage (.398), 3-point field goal percentage (.342) and turnover margin (+2.67).
