WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's basketball team returns to action on Sunday afternoon when it hosts William & Mary at 2 p.m. at the Charles E. Smith Center in the last home game of November. Following Sunday's game, the Colonials hit the road on Wednesday for a three-game swing that will take them to South Carolina, Blacksburg, Va., and Baltimore to close out the month.
GW (1-1) is coming off a tough 56-52 loss at Rutgers on Wednesday. The Colonials led with less than four minutes remaining, and the game was tied with 1:41 left on the clock. Senior Danni Jackson and graduate student Sara Mostafa led the Colonials with 10 points apiece.
Jackson paces the Colonials with 11.5 ppg this season, while Mostafa is tops with 6.5 rpg. GW has produced a balanced offensive attack in the first two contests, as seven players are averaging at least 7.0 ppg.
William & Mary (1-2) is coming off a 78-44 rout of Division II Virginia Union on Wednesday for its first win of the season. Janine Aldridge led the Tribe with 15 points in the game, and Kyla Kerstetter tallied 14 off the bench.
Emily Correal, a preseason all-conference second team selection, leads the Tribe with 21.3 ppg and 12.3 rpg through three games this season. She is the reigning Colonial Athletic Association Co-Player of the Week after tallying 25.5 ppg and 15.5 ppg in the first two games of the season. She is the team's top returning scorer and rebounder from last season.
William & Mary was picked to finish in a tie for ninth out of 11 teams in the CAA after finishing the 2011-12 campaign with a 10-20 mark. The Tribe returns 11 letterwinners from that squad, including five seniors.
Sunday's game marks the ninth all-time meeting between GW and William & Mary, and the Colonials hold a 7-1 series advantage, including 5-0 at the Smith Center. Last season, GW defeated William & Mary, 74-66, in Williamsburg, Va. Jackson led four Colonials in double figures with 22 points, while Brooke Wilson pulled down a team-high 12 rebounds and dished out seven assists. In addition, Chakecia Miller had 10 points and six steals. Aldridge led the Tribe with 20 points, while Correal posted a double-double of 13 points and 13 boards. Prior to last season's contest, the teams had not met since 1998.
