WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's basketball team continues its seven game homestand on Saturday when it hosts Morgan State at 2 p.m. at the Charles E. Smith Center.
GW (5-4) is coming off a 56-50 win over Loyola on Monday. Freshman Caira Washington posted her second double-double in three games with 15 points and 13 rebounds, continuing the impressive start to her rookie campaign in which she is averaging 9.9 points and a team-high 8.1 rebounds.
Graduate student Megan Nipe is the Atlantic 10's fourth-leading scorer, averaging 18.1 points per game. She has scored in double figures in eight out of nine games this season with 20 or more points four times. Grad student Danni Jackson, who dished out eight assists against the Greyhounds on Monday ranks seventh in the A-10 with 4.4 assists per game and is five shy of becoming the seventh Colonial ever with 400 in her career.
The Colonials and Lady Bears meet for the fourth year in a row and the eighth time in the series. GW took last season's matchup, 75-40, in Baltimore. The Colonials built a 30-point halftime lead, limiting Morgan State to just 14 points in the opening frame. Nipe led GW with 14 points, and Jackson had 11 points, seven assists and four steals. Graduate student Brooke Wilson is averaging 14.0 points and 9.5 rebounds in two career games against the Lady Bears, while Jackson has posted 8.7 points and 5.3 assists in three contests.
Morgan State (1-6) has lost four straight following a 63-53 defeat at Brown on Sunday in the consolation game of the Brown Classic. Tracey Carrington paced the Lady Bears with 17 points, and Dinah Jones pulled down a game-high 10 rebounds. Carrington leads Morgan State and ranks fourth in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference with 19.4 points per game.
The Lady Bears are averaging 61.4 points per game this season but have been outscored by 14.7 ppg, as their opponents have tallied 76.1 ppg on 45.3 percent shooting.
