Women's Hoops Wraps Road Swing at VCU on Wednesday
Colonials visit Rams in search of first conference win of season
TIPPING OFF: The George Washington women's basketball team will wrap a three-game stretch away from home when it visits VCU on Wednesday night in search of its first Atlantic 10 victory of the season. Tip off at the Stuart C. Siegel Center is scheduled for 6 p.m.
LAST TIME OUT: GW opened Atlantic 10 play with a 61-50 loss to Fordham on New Year's Eve in the Bronx.
The Colonials were outscored by only one point across the first, third and fourth quarters. However, a 20-10 scoring disadvantage in the second stanza was the deciding factor. Three players scored in double figures - freshman Chyna Latimer (14 points), senior Brianna Cummings (12) and junior Mei-Lyn Bautista (12).
FINE CHYNA: Freshman Chyna Latimer had a breakout offensive game in Sunday's A-10 opener. The Bel Air, Maryland, native started the game 6-for-6 from the field and finished with a career-high 14 points on 7-of-9 shooting. It marked her second double-figure scoring game of the season after posting 10 points (4-of-7 FG) at Maryland on December 8.
DIFFERENT LEADER: Illustrating GW's variety of offensive options, Latimer's 14 points on Sunday made her the fifth different Colonial to lead the team in scoring in a game this season.
BRI'S STREAK: Cummings has hit her last 28 free throw attempts, dating back to the third quarter against USF on Dec. 2. She enters Wednesday's game ranked second in the A-10 and 14th overall in the nation with an .897 percentage at the charity stripe this season.
HELP MORE THAN HURT: GW has turned in three consecutive games with more assists than turnovers, which continues to help bolster the team's ranking in assist-to-turnover ratio. The Colonials currently sit second in the A-10 and 49th nationally with a 1.12 ratio. Individually, Bautista paces the conference and ranks 27th in the nation (2.71). In total, GW has accumulated more assists than turnovers in 10 games this season.
SERIES HISTORY: GW leads the all-time series against VCU, 8-1, including an 81-67 win at home in last season's A-10 opener on December 1, 2016. The Colonials' record includes a 5-1 advantage since the teams became conference rivals in 2013.
