Colonials of the Week - Women's Basketball's Hannah Schaible and Shannon Cranshaw

Nov. 28, 2016

GW's Floridian duo of Hannah Schaible and Shannon Cranshaw had a very successful homecoming this past weekend when the senior pair led the Colonials to a 2-1 weekend at the Gulf Coast Showcase in Estero, Florida.

Schaible (Orlando, Fla.) and Cranshaw (Ormond Beach, Fla.) each had a standout game over the weekend and contributed in all three contests.

Schaible celebrated her 22nd birthday in style with a career-best performance against FGCU on Saturday. She hit 8-of-12 field goals and four free throws for a career-high 20 points and added seven rebounds as the Colonials trounced FGCU. For the weekend she averaged 10.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists in three games.

Cranshaw hit a trio of second-half three pointers and scored 11 points to help GW try to erase a 20-point deficit against #11/18 Syracuse on Friday night in a narrow three-point defeat to the 2016 NCAA Championship runner-up. She averaged 5.3 points, shot 42 percent from the field and averaged 1.3 assists per game in the three-game tournament.
