No. 11/12 Colonials Tangle With Spiders on Saturday at Noon
No. 11/12 GW (18-2, 7-0 A-10) at Richmond (10-12, 4-3 A-10)
Feb. 1, 2007
RICHMOND, VA - The nationally-ranked George Washington women's basketball team puts its 11-game winning streak on the line at Atlantic 10 rival Richmond on Saturday at 12:00 pm. The game, which was originally scheduled to tip-off at 7:00 pm, will be broadcast on CSTV.
No. 11/12 GW (18-2, 7-0 A-10) rides the eighth longest winning streak in the nation into the Robins Center, an arena it hasn't lost in since Nov. 1982. The Colonials lead the series 14-2 and are 5-1 all-time at Richmond, 5-0 since the Spiders joined the A-10 in 2001. GW is surrendering just 50.0 points during its last 10 games. The Colonials and Spiders met at the Smith Center just over three weeks ago, with GW coming away with a 57-50 victory in both teams' league opener.
Junior Sarah-Jo Lawrence and sophomore Jessica Adair each averaged 18.0 points in GW's wins at Dayton (70-57) and La Salle (71-47) last weekend. Lawrence scored 16 second-half points against the Flyers, while Adair led all scorers with 18. Lawrence then erupted for 20 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and four steals versus the Explorers on Sunday, with Adair adding an 18-point, 12-rebound double-double, her fourth of the season.
Richmond (10-12, 4-3 A-10) has won four of its last six games since its loss at GW on Jan. 9, but is just 3-7 at the Robins Center this season. Redshirt junior Christina Campion leads the Spiders with a 10.3 ppg average. Danielle Bell split the A-10 Rookie of the Week award on Monday after averaging 16.5 points in wins over La Salle and Fordham last week.
Saturday's contest is the first of two GW games that will air on CSTV. Saturday's game was originally set to tip-off at 7:00 pm, but the start time was moved to 12:00 pm to accomodate CSTV's programming (Dec. 18 Release). The Colonials' Feb. 25 home game versus Temple also will air on the station. CSTV, which is owned by CBS, is available on Comcast, Time Warner, Cox, Charter, Adelphia and Insight cable systems, among others, and is also available on DirecTV (channel 610) and DISH Network (Channel 152).
