WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's basketball squad will open a two-game road swing on Saturday at the No. 12/12 University of Louisville in a BIG EAST Conference matchup at KFC Yum! Center tipping off at 2 p.m. The Hoyas are currently 13-8 overall and 4-4 in BIG EAST Conference play.
In its last outing, Georgetown held on to defeat the University of Cincinnati, 54-52, at McDonough Arena. The Bearcats opened the second half with a 10-0 run, but the Hoyas were able to hold on down the stretch. A pair of Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork) free throws at 3:24 made it 54-50 as defense proved to be the key. Cincinnati cut it to two, but a crucial rebound by senior forward Vanessa Moore (Hackettstown, N.J./Pope John XXIII) in the final minute sealed the 54-52 victory.
Rodgers led all scorers with 17 points, while sophomore forward Brittany Horne (Carmel, N.Y./Carmel) added 15 and both junior forward Andrea White (Lancaster, Va./Lancaster) and senior center Sydney Wilson (Silver Spring, Md./St. John's College Prep) posted 10. Wilson managed a team-best seven rebounds and White had five assists in the contest, while Rodgers tallied five steals. Georgetown outrebounded Cincinnati, 35-32, and forced 17 Bearcat turnovers. The Hoyas shot 36.1 percent for the game. The lead changed eight times with four ties.
Currently leading the way for the Hoyas is Rodgers. The shooting guard is averaging 23.7 ppg and 7.4 rpg as well as posting 77 steals and 79 assists. White is second with 10.8 ppg and 6.0 rpg, while Wilson rounds out the top three with 7.0 ppg as well as 5.2 rpg. Junior guard Samisha Powell (Virginia Beach, Va./Princess Anne) is averaging 6.0 ppg and has 65 assists on the season.
The Cards are 18-4 overall and 6-2 in BIG EAST Conference play most recently defeating the University of South Florida, 78-75. Shoni Schimmel scored a career-high 38 points and Louisville rallied from a nine-point second-half deficit to beat the Bulls on Wednesday night. The junior guard hit a two-point jumper and three 3-pointers as the Cardinals tied the game after trailing 60-51. Another 3 by Schimmel at the 3:05 mark put Louisville ahead to stay, 69-66.
Georgetown is 2-5 all-time against the Cardinals with all seven contests coming in BIG EAST Conference play. On the road, the Hoyas are 1-2 all-time. Last year, Louisville held on for a 64-61 victory at McDonough Arena as Rodgers led the way for Georgetown with 24 points. In the last meeting in Kentucky, Georgetown won 76-52.
Tipoff is scheduled for 2 p.m., at the KFC Yum! Center. Live stats and a webcast will be available through Louisville's athletic website.
