WASHINGTON - George Washington begins its 38th season of women's basketball and its first under head coach Jonathan Tsipis on Friday evening when UT Arlington visits the Charles E. Smith Center at 7:00 p.m.
Friday marks the second-ever meeting between GW and UT Arlington following the Colonials' 63-41 season-opening win over the Mavericks in Texas. Sara Mostafa finished with a game-high 21 points and eight rebounds, while Tara Booker posted 13 points and seven boards.
GW is 21-16 all-time in season openers, including 14-2 when beginning the season at the Smith Center, and the Colonials are 5-1 in their last six season openers.
Four Colonials scored in double figures in GW's 69-39 exhibition win over Division II Wingate on Sunday. Booker, a graduate student, scored a game-high 12 points, classmate Brooke Wilson recorded 10 points and a game-best 10 rebounds and senior Danni Jackson tallied 10 points and nine assists.
Booker and Jackson were both named to the Atlantic 10 Preseason All-Conference Third Team after tying for the team lead with 12.0 points per game a year ago. They headline a group of eight returning players which includes three fifth-year seniors and three traditional seniors.
UT Arlington is coming off a 7-21 campaign in 2011-12, its final in the Southland Conference. The Mavericks began competition in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) at the start of the 2012-13 academic year. UTA was predicted to finish 10th out of 10 teams in the WAC in both the Preseason Coaches Poll and the Media Poll. The Mavericks return 11 letterwinners, including top returning scorer Sabreena DeNure, who averaged 6.6 points per game last season.
