Women’s Hoops Seeks Bounce-Back Performance at Marquette

January 9, 2016


Sports Information

In the midst of a two-game road trip, the Georgetown women’s basketball team (9-6, 2-3 Big East) will travel to Milwaukee on Sunday,  January 10, to take on the Marquette Golden Eagles (5-10, 0-4 Big East).

On Friday, the Hoyas fell to the DePaul Blue Demons (12-5, 4-0) by a score of 75-53. DePaul, who is ranked No. 24 in both national polls, used an 11-0 run in the third quarter to pull away from the Hoyas.

The Blue and Gray will also be looking for sophomore guard Dorothy Adomako and freshman guard Dionna White to bounce back after uncharacteristically low scoring totals against DePaul. Adomako and White both finished the game with 8 points each.

Marquette will be searching for their first conference win of the season against Georgetown. The Golden Eagles are led by freshman guard Allazia Blockton, who is averaging 21.0 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists in four conference games.

The Hoyas have yet to lose at McDonough Arena this season, but despite being 5-0 at home, they have gone 2-6 on the road. Head coach Natasha Adair stressed how important home court is in Big East play.

 

Obviously, when you’re playing conference, everyone’s trying to protect home court when you’re on the road,” said Adair.

Coach Adair also talked about Georgetown’s road play this season.

 

We were just hoping we could steal a couple on the road,” said the second-year head coach. “But, you know, it is a long season, and we’ll go back and we’ll look at the film, and we’ll tweak some things and adjust.”

Georgetown hopes to end their road woes tomorrow afternoon in Milwaukee at McGuire Center. Tip-off is at noon.
