WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's basketball team will travel to New Haven, Conn., for a matchup against the Yale University Bulldogs Tuesday evening at 7 p.m. Additionally, the Hoyas had a pair of weekly award winners after a 1-1 week for the Blue & Gray.
On Monday, freshman center Natalie Butler (Fairfax Station, Va./Lake Braddock) was named the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week for the third time this season. Butler averaged 14.5 points and 8.5 rebounds in a 1-1 week for the Hoyas. She posted 17 points and eight boards in a 78-57 win over George Washington and followed that with 12 points and nine rebounds in a 77-68 loss to No. 10/11 Penn State. Butler is currently first in the BIG EAST in rebounding (12.3).
Sophomore guard Katie McCormick (Leonardtown, Md./St. Mary's Ryken) earned a spot on the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll after another big week. She averaged 16.0 points and 5.0 rebounds and led the Hoyas against No. 10/11 Penn State with 17 points, all in the second half. McCormick made eight 3-pointers in the two contests. It marks her first career honor.
On Sunday, the Blue & Gray fell to No. 10/11 Penn State, 77-68, at McDonough Arena. After looking at a 19-point deficit, the Hoyas came back to cut it to five with two minutes remaining, but couldn't find the answer to drop to 5-3 on the season. McCormick led way with 17 points and Butler added 12, while freshman forward Faith Woodard (Brandon, Fla./Freedom) added 10. Butler posted nine boards and senior forward Andrea White (Lancaster, Va./Lancaster) managed five assists as well as seven steals.
Butler is leading the squad in points and rebounds averaging a double-double with 15.0 ppg and 12.3 rpg. White is second with 13.3 ppg and 8.0 rpg and McCormick is averaging 13.1 ppg and is a perfect 11-of-11 at the line.
Yale (4-5) fell to Army, 68-56, on Saturday. After holding an early lead, 12-11, the Bulldogs were stymied by the Black Knights over an 11-minute span in the first haf as the visitors built a 34-19 lead to pick up the win. Yale shot a season-best 11-of-14 (.786) from the foul line, while Janna Graf and Sarah Halejian each scored 13 points.
Halejian leads the team in scoring (14.2 ppg), assists (3.4 apg) and steals (2.3 spg). Meredith Boardman is the leading rebounder for Yale at 7.8 per game.
Georgetown is 4-1 all-time against the Bulldogs with a 1-1 record away from McDonough Arena. The first four meetings were in consecutive seasons between 1980-82. Last year, Georgetown won, 90-67, at home on Dec. 28, 2012. Sugar Rodgers led the Hoyas with a season-high 38 points, one shy of her career best, while also contributing six boards, five assists and five steals. White added 16 points and seven rebounds.
Tipoff on Tuesday is scheduled for 7 p.m. Live stats and a webcast will be available at the Bulldogs' athletic website.
