GW Women's Hoops Begins Preparations for European Tour With First Practice
Colonials Will Play Four Games in England and France During Ten-Day Trip
July 31, 2014
WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's basketball team began preparing for its European tour on Thursday with its first official practice.
The Colonials took part in drills and some strategic work during a two-hour session. The NCAA allows teams 10 practices leading up to foreign tours.
Thursday's session was the first official practice for GW's five freshmen - Brianna Cummings, Mia Farmer, Jada Matthews, Kelli Prange and Camila Tapias - and gave the Colonials a chance to practice together as a team for the first time.
"It went great. Just getting accustomed to the speed of the game and the overall drills that we're doing is a challenge, but I'm up to it," Cummings said. "I can't wait to be in London and France; I'm really excited to play over there."
The Colonials will spend 10 days abroad in England and France from Aug. 13-23 and will play four games against European competition. While overseas, the team will play under international rules, including a different ball, a wider lane and a 24-second shot clock, which they used in practice on Thursday.
"We had great team energy; everyone put their best effort forward," said junior Dalacy Anderson. "We're very excited - we get a new atmosphere, new experiences. I'm definitely ready to play with everybody."
