JU Women’s Basketball: New Year, No Loses

The Dolphins keep their win streak alive.

The Dolphins Women’s Basketball team defeated the Stetson Hatters 69-49 on Saturday, Jan. 30 at the Swisher Gymnasium to open the new year undefeated, winning all games in the month of January. Stetson kept the game close with the Dolphins up until the fourth quarter with a score of 46-41.

Due to a strong display of defensive play and a much needed increase of rebounding led by Junior Sherranda Reddick, the Dolphins pulled away in the fourth, outscoring Stetson 28-8 to finish the game.

“We made adjustments in the second quarter and the girls did the rest,” said Head Coach Yolett McPhee-McCuin.

The victory positions the team at 14-7 overall and undefeated (6-0) within the Atlantic Sun Conference. JU’s next opponent are the champions of last season, Florida Gulf Coast.
