get complete details of UNF women will play two in Ireland
from here, checkout more details.
Jacksonville and North Florida entered their early season “money games” when the Dolphins played at Duke and the Ospreys went to Washington state for the first time in school history to take on Gonzaga and Washington.
They came home with a combined 0-3, but UNF almost pulled off the upset against the Pac-12 Huskies.
The JU women also had the opportunity to cause an upset, heading to the historic Allen Field House to take on Kansas. They fought hard in loss, but like the UNF men against Washington, it could bode well for the rest of the season.
This week’s schedule is relatively light, with schools entering final exams. However, the UNF women will make the longest road trip any team in the area will have all season.
Men: Ospreys almost annoyed huskies
Player of the week: Jacksonville junior forward Mike Marsh had 34 points and 13 rebounds in two games, a 71-44 loss to Duke and an 85-34 victory over Johnson University. He shot 16 of 22 from the floor, including 7 of 8 in a 15-point game against Duke.
Game of the week: North Florida, in the second game of their first road trip to Washington state, cut the University of Washington’s lead to two points with 1:16 left, but the Huskies scored the last six points to win 75-67. There were nine lead changes and nine draws. Jarius Hicklen scored 19 points to lead four players in double figures.
Statistical line of the week: JU shooting guard Gyasi Powell had 13 points on 5-for-8 shooting and added six rebounds and four assists in the Dolphins’ victory over Johnson.
Scoring UNF (0-2): Senior Carter Hendricksen became the eighth Osprey player to reach 200 career 3-pointers when he made his second 3-pointer of the night in a 104-63 loss to Gonzaga. Hendricksen had 16 points and eight rebounds.
Observing JU (1-1): The Dolphins have won 16 straight at home but have a long way to go to threaten the program record. JU won 35 straight home games in the 1969 and 1970 seasons. When the Dolphins beat Johnson, they tied Murray State and Winthrop for the 11th-longest streak in the nation. Both teams won their 17 straight home games on Saturday.
Taking note of Edward Waters (0-1): The Tigers were beaten 100-61 at North Carolina A&T, but they may have found a big man in 6-foot-7 Jackson State transfer Larry Kuimi. He had 16 points, nine rebounds and two blocks.
Noting Trinity Baptist (1-4): The Eagles won their first game by beating Welch (Tenn.) 65-55. Jacquez Anderson led 12 players scoring with 12 points and added six rebounds. But on Saturday, Trinity shot just 20 percent in a 53-32 loss to Georgia Southern.
Pointing to Flagler (2-2): The Saints’ 110-90 victory over Anderson College on Saturday was the most points since beating Puerto Rico-Mayaguez 111-88 on Nov. 28, 2011. Jaylen Lemons had 28 points and five assists and Malik Bryant added 25 points and seven rebounds.

Game of the week: The Dolphins cut a 13-point lead to six in the fourth quarter, but the Jayhawks withstood the surprise offer. Shynia Jackson led JU with 15 points and added four rebounds, Seraphine Bastin had 14 points, 12 rebounds and five assists and Deshari Graham added 13 points.
Statistical line of the week: Trinity Baptist’s Katia Bogun had 22 points and 10 rebounds, shooting 10-for-13 from the floor in the Eagles’ 91-58 victory over Wesleyan (Ga.).
Scoring UNF (1-0): The Ospreys’ game against Charleston Southern last Thursday was postponed due to the arrival of Hurricane Nicole. After a game in Wisconsin on Sunday, the UNF travels to Dublin, Ireland to play Rider on November 18 and Marist on the 19.
Observing JU (1-1): The Dolphins’ loss to Kansas was their third against teams currently in the Big 12 and they have been competitive in all three. JU lost to Kansas State 53-43 in 2008 and to Texas Tech 62-48 in 2013.
Taking note of Edward Waters (0-1): The Tigers fell 72-56 at Bethune-Cookman, being outscored 21-11 in the third quarter after trailing 31-25 at halftime. Junior point guard Tatum Hayes, transferred from Bethune, led EWU with 20 points and five 3-pointers.
Noting Trinity Baptist (2-2): Behind Bogun and Lake Butler’s Caroline Smith (15 rebounds), the Eagles outrebounded Wesleyan 49-13.
Watching Flagler (0-1): The Saints had a brutal preseason, losing exhibitions to Florida State (119-27) and Stetson (79-52). They kept it competitive in their opening game on Saturday, losing to Anderson University 63-55. Sharale McCormick had 19 points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals.
