A two-year letter winner for the Seahawks, Mobley earned second team All-Colonial Athletic Association honors after ranking eighth in the CAA with a 13.4 scoring average last season.  In leading the Seahawks to a pair of wins over Delaware and Charleston late in the year, Mobley had a week to remember by averaging 33.0 points per game, while shooting 62.8 percent from the field.

She broke the UNCW and Trask Coliseum scoring records by tallying a career-high 46 points to help erase a 12-point deficit to snap a nine-game losing streak against Delaware. Mobley also set a school and conference record by making 19 field goals in 25 attempts.

The decision to part ways with the Florida native comes just ahead of the Seahawks’ 2015-16 slate, with hopes of building off their 14-win 2014-15 season and 10-8 mark in the CAA. Media day for the women’s team is scheduled for Wednesday, October 7.
