WILMINGTON, NC - The William and Mary women's basketball team turned in a great performance at the line Sunday afternoon, but fell to UNC Wilmington 82-59. This was the ninth game and midpoint of the Colonial Athletic Association season.
The Tribe was led in the game by 16 points apiece from junior Taysha Pye (Bronx, N.Y.) and sophomore Emily Correal (Venetia, Pa.).
