UNCW Press Release

WILMINGTON, North Carolina – UNCW freshman guard Brie Mobley has been named the Colonial Athletic Association's Rookie-of-the-Week, it was announced on Monday.

It marks the second time this season that Mobley has received the honor as she was also recognized on Jan. 12.

Mobley closed the regular season with a season-high 29 points in the Seahawks' 85-77 setback at College of Charleston on March 5. The Winter Haven, Fla., product was 10-fo-18 from the floor and 9-of-10 at the free-throw line against the Cougars as she helped UNCW establish a new season-high in points.

Mobley's outburst matched Gwen Austin for the fifth highest single-game point total by a freshman in school history and also represented most points scored in a game by a UNCW rookie since Sissy Morse finished with 30 against Duke on Feb. 23, 1985.

UNCW returns to action Thursday as it opens the 2014 CAA Women's Basketball Championship with a 2 p.m. first-round contest against William & Mary at The Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, Md.
