The Georgetown University women's basketball squad dropped a 75-55 decision to the DePaul University Blue Demons (19-9, 8-6 BIG EAST) Tuesday evening at McGrath-Phillips Arena in Chicago, Ill. The Hoyas battled, but couldn't stop DePaul's hot shooting to fall to 14-13 overall and 5-9 in BIG EAST Conference play.

Butler extended her consecutive double-double streak to eight games following a pair last week. The rookie center tallied 13 points and 14 rebounds at Providence on Wednesday before registering 16 points and 14 boards at Seton Hall on Saturday.

For the week, Butler shot 48.1 percent and added a pair of blocks per contest. Butler maintained her spot atop the BIG EAST rebounding list this season, showing a 13.4 caroms per contest average.

Her seven BIG EAST Freshman of the Week certificates put her in a tie for third with Connecticut's Rebecca Lobo for most all-time. The league record of 10 newcomer awards is held by Connecticut's Maya Moore (2007-08).

Nationally, she ranks fifth in double-doubles and sixth in rebounds per game.

White led the Hoyas in scoring in both games last week, averaging 19 points, 12 rebounds. She ranks second in the BIG EAST behind Butler with nine double-doubles on the season.

Leading the way for the Hoyas is White with 15.7 ppg and 9.1 rpg. Butler is second with 14.9 ppg as well as a BIG EAST-leading 13.4 rpg. Sophomore guard Katie McCormick (Leonardtown, Md./St. Mary's Ryken) rounds out those in double figures with 11.1 ppg, respectively.

 

 

The team is outrebounding opponents by 9.4 rpg and shooting 41.6 percent on the season from the field.

Led by Brittany Hrynko, Megan Rogowski, Chanise Jenkins and Centrese McGee, the Blue Demons blitzed BIG EAST Conference rival Villanova 91-65 at McGrath-Phillips Arena on Sunday. Hrynko led the way with 20 points, seven assists and five rebounds while Rogowski finished with 16 points and five rebounds.

Jenkins contributed eight points, eight rebounds and four assists. McGee added a season-high nine points and added five rebounds off the bench. The Blue Demons' six turnovers were the fewest in a game this season.

For her efforts, Hrynko was named the BIG EAST Player of the Week.

Georgetown is 2-8 all-time against the Blue Demons with a mark of 1-3 at McDonough Arena. Last season, the Hoyas fell 75-55 in Chicago, Ill. White and Sugar Rodgers led the way with 17 points apiece, while White had eight boards and Rodgers added seven rebounds and nine assists.
