Women’s Hoops Pre-Game Primer: Hoyas go for second straight win vs. Providence

January 28, 2016

Sports Information

The Georgetown women’s basketball team (10-9, 3-6 Big East) will look to pick up their second-straight road win over a Big East opponent Friday night against the Providence Friars (4-15, 0-9 Big East). Tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m. 

The Hoyas are coming off of a big win against the Villanova Wildcats (13-7, 6-3 Big East). Since starting the season 5-1, the Hoyas have regressed to a record that now sits just above .500 on the year. Before the Villanova matchup, the Hoyas had lost their last four games, all against Big East opponents. Additionally, the Hoyas have lost their last two home games, after starting the season 5-0 at the McDonough Arena.

In their last game against Xavier, freshman guard Dionna White scored 20 points and collected 11 rebounds, registering her first career double-double. White currently leads the Blue and Gray with 14.7 points per game.

The Friars, who have had continued struggles throughout this season, hope to register their first Big East win when they host the Hoyas. In their last game, the Friars were nearly doubled up as they fell to DePaul by a score of 96-50. The Friar’s struggles in conference play have continued this year, as they’ve dropped 19 of their last 20 games against Big East opponents since last January.

Freshman Maddie Jolin has been a bright spot for the Friars. Against DePaul, she was able to put up 12 points and a career-high seven rebounds.

The Hoyas and Friars have already met once before this season, with Georgetown taking the 63-53 win. Sophomore guard Dorothy Adomako had a game-high of 19 points to go along with nine rebounds in the Georgetown victory.
