WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's basketball squad will host the University of Pittsburgh Panthers on Saturday afternoon in a BIG EAST Conference matchup at McDonough Arena. The Hoyas are currently 11-8 overall and 2-4 in BIG EAST Conference play.
On Monday, junior forward Andrea White (Lancaster, Va./Lancaster) was named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll. She helped Georgetown go 1-1 with back-to-back double-doubles averaging 16.0 ppg as well as 11.0 rpg with six assists and four blocks shooting 55 percent from the field. The two double-doubles were the first two of her career. It was also White's first weekly award of her career.
Additionally, senior shooting guard Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork) was one of 20 players selected to the Wooden Midseason Top 20 on Tuesday. The Wooden Award is given to the top player in college basketball each season. This is her third time on the Top 20 list.
In its last outing, Georgetown fell in a close one at Rutgers, 55-47. The Hoyas cut the lead to two late in the second, but couldn't find a way losing their shooting touch down the stretch. Rodgers led all scorers with 13 points and pulled down seven boards. Sophomore forward Brittany Horne (Carmel, N.Y./Carmel) added 11 points and four steals.
Both teams had 20 turnovers, but the Hoyas were outrebounded, 45-34, and shot just 25.0 percent for the game.
Currently leading the way for the Hoyas is Rodgers. The shooting guard is averaging 24.0 ppg and 7.7 rpg as well as posting 67 steals and 67 assists. White is second with 10.8 ppg and 6.0 rpg, while senior center Sydney Wilson (Silver Spring, Md./St. John's College Prep) rounds out the top three with 6.8 ppg as well as 5.1 rpg. Junior guard Samisha Powell (Virginia Beach, Va./Princess Anne) is averaging 6.4 ppg and has 58 assists on the season.
The Panthers are 9-9 overall and 0-5 in BIG EAST Conference play most recently falling to No. 2 Notre Dame, 73-47. Pitt looked good early, but with the game tied at 29, Notre Dame scored the final six points before break. The Irish continued the spurt in the second half, scoring 25 of the first 28 points. Brianna Kiesel scored 12 points to lead Pitt (9-9, 0-5), which was without leading scorer Asia Logan.
Georgetown is 22-27 all-time against the Panthers with a mark of 21-26 in BIG EAST Conference play. At home, the Hoyas are 10-11 all-time. GU has won the last three meetings including an 82-54 victory a season ago in Pennsylvania. Rodgers had 28 points in the win. In the last meeting at McDonough, the Hoyas won by a score of 67-57.
Tipoff is scheduled for 4 p.m., at the McDonough Arena. Live stats and webcast featuring Ryan Sakamoto and Monica McNutt will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
