WASHINGTON - Following a historic performance on Sunday in Atlanta, the George Washington women's basketball team returns to the District for a showdown with crosstown rival Georgetown on Tuesday. Tipoff from the Hoyas' McDonough Arena is set for 8 p.m.
GW (4-2) defeated Jacksonville State, 100-71, in the consolation game of the Georgia State Invitational, becoming the first team in program history to reach 100 points twice in the same season. Graduate student Megan Nipe scored 31 points against the Gamecocks, matching her career-high which she set just two weeks ago in GW's upset of No. 10/11 California. She is the ninth Colonial ever to top 30 points twice in a season and the first since Cathy Joens did it three times in 2004.
Nipe led five Colonials in double figures, as junior Chakecia Miller scored 13 points to go with six assists, five steals and five rebounds, while sophomore Dalacy Anderson tallied a career-high 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting. Freshman Hannah Schaible scored 11 points and had three steals and three assists, and graduate student Danni Jackson recorded 10 points and seven assists, moving her into a tie for 10th place all-time at GW with 380 career helpers.
Nipe is the Atlantic 10's third-leading scorer, averaging 19.3 points per game, while Jackson is averaging 11.3 ppg and ranks seventh in the league with 4.2 assists per contest. Miller gives the Colonials three players scoring in double digits with 10.0 ppg, and freshman Caira Washington is GW's top rebounder with 7.2 rpg to go with 8.7 ppg.
Georgetown (4-2) has won three straight games, including a 92-78 victory over Alaska-Anchorage to take home the Great Alaska Shootout Championship. Andrea White was named the Most Outstanding Player and was joined on the All-Tournament Team by Natalie Butler and Katie McCormick.
Butler, a freshman center who has been named BIG EAST Rookie of the Week twice this season, averages a double-double on the season with 16.3 points and 13.5 rebounds per game. She leads the league in rebounding and blocks (2.0 bpg) and ranks eighth in scoring. White also ranks among conference leaders with 14.0 ppg and 7.2 rpg, and she is second with a .600 shooting percentage.
Tuesday's game is the 23rd all-time meeting between GW and Georgetown, and the Colonials lead the series, 17-15.
GW opens a seven-game homestand on Saturday when it hosts Towson at 2 p.m. The Colonials play at the Charles E. Smith Center for the remainder of 2013, then open Atlantic 10 play at home against George Mason on Jan. 2.
