SERIES VS. CAMPBELL

GWU is in need of a win on "Senior Night", March 5th, as the Runnin' Bulldogs will wrap up the regular season with a home contest versus Campbell at 7 p.m. in Paul Porter Arena.  In order for GWU's season to continue beyond Monday night and to earn a spot in next week's Big South Tournament, the Runnin' Bulldogs most post a win over Campbell and hope that UNC Asheville falls to High Point.  Campbell, who is looking to secure a No. 4 seed for the postseason conference tournament, defeated GWU 62-52 back in the two teams' conference opener on December 30th in Buies Creek, N.C.  While Campbell holds a slight 9-8 advantage in the two teams' Division I series, GWU has won seven of the last 11 meetings between the two schools on the hardwood.  Gardner-Webb is 4-2 versus the Fighting Camels at home in Paul Porter Arena with the last home loss to Campbell coming back in 2005-06.  Prior to the game, GWU will recognize their seniors Brianna Dillard and Breynna Winkler.

GWU TO HOLD "SENIOR NIGHT" MONDAY NIGHT, MARCH 5TH

Prior to the 7 p.m. tip-off with Campbell on Monday night, March 5th, the Gardner-Webb women's basketball program will recognize seniors Breynna Winkler and Brianna Dillard on "Senior Night". Make plans now to arrive early to show your appreciation for the two seniors hard work over the last few years at GWU.

IN NEED OF A WIN

GWU is still in the mix for a spot in the 2012 Advance Auto Parts Big South Women's Basketball Championship Tournament come March 9-11 in High Point, N.C.   The Runnin' Bulldogs are in need of a win and a UNC Asheville loss on Monday night to assure them a spot in the postseason conference tournament.

LAST TIME OUT

The Gardner-Webb women's basketball team pushed High Point to the limit for most of the 40 minutes of play, however, the High Point Panthers scored 22 points off of 24 Runnin' Bulldog turnovers to pull away from GWU late and defeat the Runnin' Bulldogs, 66-46, at Paul Porter Arena in Boiling Springs, N.C. on Friday night. While the points in the paint were even for the game at 34 points apiece, the Panthers took advantage of 24 Gardner-Webb turnovers, scoring 22 points off those miscues in the win. GWU sophomore center Catrina Green had 13 points and seven rebounds, while senior guard Brianna Dillard added 10 points and seven rebounds for the game.  Freshman Jessica Heilig hauled down a team-high nine rebounds for GWU in the loss. Back-to-back baskets from GWU's Mayhana Dunovant and Jasmine Dale put the Runnin' Bulldogs within striking distance at 51-46 with 6:03 to go in regulation, yet the Panthers went to Reynolds, who scored six of their next 10 points to help High Point pull away for the 66-46 win. The Runnin' Bulldogs went the final 6:03 without a single point, as High Point outscored GWU 14-0 during that span en route to the 20 point win. Gardner-Webb out-rebounded High Point 46-40 and hauled in 23 offensive rebounds, which led to 13 second chance points. However, the Panthers shot 48.1 percent (25-of-52) overall for the game, while GWU shot only 28.6 percent (20-of-70) overall.
