Preview
    The Jacksonville University women’s basketball team wraps up the A-Sun regular season on Saturday at Northern Kentucky.

    The Dolphins (11-17, 7-10) have won four straight following a 67-55 win at Lipscomb on Thursday night.

    Named the A-Sun Newcomer of the week on Tuesday, Queen Alford lived up to her billing with her third double-double in the last five games. Alford totaled a team high 19 points and had 10 rebounds.

    Junior Jade Cargill also had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds as four Dolphins reached double figures.

    Northern Kentucky (14-12, 11-6) is coming off a 57-44 win over North Florida on Thursday. The Norse competed in the Division II Great Lakes Valley Conference from 1985-2012, and joined the A-Sun this season while reclassifying to Division I.  While undergoing the reclassifying in 2012-13, NKU is not eligible for the A-Sun Tournament
