WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's basketball squad will host the Marquette University Golden Eagles on Saturday afternoon at McDonough Arena in a BIG EAST Conference matchup. Tipoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. The Hoyas are currently 14-13 overall and 5-9 in BIG EAST Conference play.
Saturday is also senior day where the three seniors will be recognized in a ceremony prior to the opening tip. Seniors Vanessa Moore (Hackettstown, N.J./Pope John XXIII), Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork) and Sydney Wilson (Silver Spring, Md./St. John's College Prep) have combined for 322 games played with 194 starts. The group earned three-consecutive NCAA Tournament berths and helped put Georgetown on the national stage.
In its last outing, Georgetown dropped a 75-55 decision to the DePaul University Blue Demons Tuesday evening at McGrath-Phillips Arena in Chicago, Ill., to close out the regular season road schedule. The Hoyas battled, but couldn't stop DePaul's hot shooting. Junior forward Andrea White (Lancaster, Va./Lancaster) and Rodgers led the way with 17 points apiece, while White had eight boards and Rodgers added seven rebounds and nine assists. Moore had a big night on the boards with 10 rebounds including seven on the offensive glass. Georgetown was outrebounded, 47-41, and forced 16 DePaul turnovers.
Currently leading the way for the Hoyas is Rodgers. The shooting guard is averaging 22.3 ppg and 7.2 rpg as well as posting 96 steals and 115 assists. White is second with 11.0 ppg and 6.4 rpg, while Wilson rounds out the top three with 6.9 ppg as well as 5.2 rpg.
Led by Katherine Plouffe's 20 points, Marquette (13-14, 5-9 BIG EAST) snapped a three-game losing skid with an 81-70 victory at Providence on Tuesday night. Plouffe recorded her seventh double-double of the season with 20 points and 12 boards. Sophomore Arlesia Morse tallied 19 points, 17 in the second half, while sophomores Lauren Tibbs and Chelsie Butler posted 14 and 11 points, respectively. It was the first time since Jan. 2 that four players notched double digits.
The Hoyas are 1-6 all-time against the Golden Eagles and 0-4 at home. Last season, Georgetown defeated MU, 67-39, in Milwaukee, Wis. Rodgers led the way with 18 points, while Tommacina McBride added 14 and Adria Crawford had 10 boards. GU forced 29 Golden Eagle turnovers and outrebounded the squad, 48-35. In the last meeting at McDonough Arena, the Hoyas fell by a score of 75-73 in overtime.
Saturday's game will tip at 4 p.m., at McDonough Arena. The ceremony honoring the three seniors will happen before the game. Live stats and a webcast featuring Ryan Sakamoto and Georgetown alum Monica McNutt will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
