WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's basketball team will host the No. 10/11 University of California- Berkeley Golden Bears (1-2) Sunday afternoon at McDonough Arena at 3 p.m. The game is Georgetown's first of the season to be broadcast live on FOX Sports 1.

A second-half comeback wasn't enough as the Blue & Gray fell to the South Dakota State Jackrabbits, 86-80, Friday evening in Brookings, S.D. After trailing by as much as 15 at one point in the contest, the Hoyas cut the lead to just two with six minutes to go in the game and kept it a one-two possession contest down to the end, but ran out of time.

Hoyas Fall to No. 11/11 Cal in Championship of Cal Classic by Doubletree
The Georgetown University women's basketball squad fell, 72-56, to the No. 11/11 University of California Golden Bears (6-0) in the championship game of the Cal Classic presented by Doubletree on Saturday at Haas Pavilion in Berkeley, Calif. Georgetown battled its second ranked opponent of the season, but couldn't hold on to fall to 4-2 overall.

Freshman center Natalie Butler (Fairfax Station, Va./Lake Braddock) led the way for the Hoyas with her second double-double in as many collegiate games scoring 20 points with 13 blocks. She was an impressive 8-of-10 from the field and 4-of-6 at the line. Sophomore guard Katie McCormick (Leonardtown, Md./St. Mary's Ryken) added 18 points fueled by a trio of 3-pointers and freshman forward Shayla Cooper (Norcross, Ga./Norcross) tallied her first-career double-double with 15 points and 10 boards.

The Blue & Gray shot 45.8 percent from the field, but allowed the Jackrabbits to shoot 50.0 percent. Georgetown held a 42-31 advantage on the boards and tallied four blocks in the contest.

Butler is leading the squad in points and rebounds averaging a double-double with 16.5 ppg and 13.0 rpg. Cooper is second with 16.0 ppg and 8.5 rpg, while McCormick has 14.5 ppg on the year. Georgetown has four players averaging double figures, senior guard Samisha Powell (Virginia Beach, Va./Princess Anne) has tallied 10.5 ppg as well as a team-best nine assists.

 

 

Reshanda Gray scored a career-high 24 points and Brittany Boyd had a double-double with 17 points and 11 rebounds, but George Washington was able to escape with a 75-72 win over No. 10/11 California Friday night at the Charles E. Smith Center. California, playing without regular post players Gennifer Brandon and Justine Hartman, also had a 12-point outing from Afure Jemerigbe, but George Washington's Megan Nipe scored a career-high 31 points to lead the Colonials to the victory.

Georgetown is 0-1 against Cal with the last meeting coming a season ago in the championship of the Cal Classic. The Hoyas fell, 72-56, despite trailing by just five at half. Sugar Rodgers had 20 points and six boards in the contest, while forward Andrea White (Lancaster, Va./Lancaster) added 15 points and Powell managed seven assists.

Tipoff on Sunday at McDonough Arena is at 3 p.m. The game will be televised live on FOX Sports 1 with Tiffany Green and LaChina Robinson calling the action. Additionally, fans can listen to Ryan Sakamoto and Georgetown-alum Monica McNutt on Hoyavision or follow the live stats at www.GUHoyas.com.
