A-10 Release

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - Seeking its fourth Atlantic 10 title in five years, George Washington women's basketball will play nine games against squads that advanced to postseason play last season as part of its 16-game 2018-19 conference schedule, the league office announced Wednesday.

The Colonials are set for home-and-home matchups with Dayton (NCAA at-large), Duquesne (WNIT) and George Mason (WNIT) during their third season under head coach Jennifer Rizzotti.

GW will also host Saint Joseph's (WNIT) next season at Charles E. Smith Center in a rematch of last March's A-10 Tournament final, as well as getting visits from Fordham (WNIT), Davidson, St. Bonaventure and VCU. Its road-only contests are at Saint Louis (WNIT), La Salle, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Richmond.

The complete A-10 schedule with dates and times, plus GW's non-conference slate, will be announced at a later date.

The Colonials are set to return three starters and a pair of key reserves from last year's squad that surged down the stretch to capture their seventh A-10 Tournament title and third NCAA berth in four years. They also add a promising cast of newcomers that includes four first-year student-athletes and two transfers.
