- Against Ivy League competition, the College owns a record of 10-9.  Furthermore, W&M currently owns winning ledgers against Penn (3-1), Dartmouth (2-1) and Cornell (1-0).   

- Through nine games of the 2012-13 season, senior Emily Correal has been impressive.  The Venetia, Pa., native opened the season against East Carolina with 24 points and 21 rebounds as she became only the third player in program history to tally 20 points and 20 rebounds in a game.  In her return home to the Pittsburgh area, Correal backed up an impressive debut with 27 points and 10 rebounds in the College's tilt at Pitt.  For her opening week efforts, she was named the Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Week on Nov. 12.  Correal earned the player of the week distinction again on Dec. 10, after she scored 21 points at Navy before pouring in 28 points against Radford.  Additionally, in the contest at Radford, she became the 16th player in school history to reach the 1,000 career-point milestone.  In W&M's last outing at North Carolina A&T, Correal netted a career-high 30 points on 10-of-16 shooting from the floor.
