Scouting the Tribe
William and Mary travels to Northern Virginia on Sunday afternoon with a 5-16 mark overall and a 3-7 ledger in CAA action.  On Thursday night, W&M suffered a 57-52 setback at Georgia State.  The Tribe erased a 16-point second half deficit as it took a 47-45 lead with 5:37 left in regulation but the Panthers scored the next eight points en route to the win.  Senior Emily Correal led the Green and Gold with a game-high 22 points and eight rebounds, while sophomore Kyla Kerstetter chipped in with 12 points.

For the year, Correal ranks fifth in the CAA in scoring (16.0 ppg) and seventh in rebounding (8.0).  The Venetia Pa., native has scored 20 or more points on nine occasions this season, which ranks second in the league.  Classmate Janine Aldridge is netting 13.5 ppg, which is good for ninth in the conference, while her 66 3-pointers made rank first.  The Massapequa, N.Y., native is connecting on 3.30 3-pointers per contest, which rank fourth in the nation.  Furthermore, Aldridge is W&M's all-time leader in 3-pointers made (287) which also ranks tied for sixth in the CAA record books.  

W&M ranks sixth in the league in scoring (62.3), while its 11.0 steals and 15.1 assists per game rank second and third, respectively.  The Green and Gold have connected on 133 3-pointers this season, which stands second in the league only behind Northeastern (170).

Scouting the Patriots
Under the direction of fifth-year head coach Jeri Porter George Mason enters Sunday's contest with an overall record of 6-14 and a CAA ledger of 1-8.  In its last outing, the Patriots dropped a 53-39 decision to Old Dominion at the Patriot Center.  Rahneeka Saunders and Amber Easter led Mason against the Monarchs with 14 and 11 points, respectively.

Saunders leads the Patriot attack with 12 points per contest, which ranks 12th in the CAA.  Furthermore, her 43 steals on the season not only pace Mason but also stand fifth in the league.  The Patriots rank 10th (54.7) in the league in scoring and seventh in scoring defense (62.2), while its free-throw percentage of .747 ranks second.  Mason has shined in its ability to rebound the basketball this season as it ranks third in the CAA in rebounding margin (+2.5) and fourth in rebounding defense (36.2).

- Sunday's matchup at the Patriot Center will be the 71st meeting between W&M and George Mason, as the Patriots own a 49-22 series advantage.  Last season, the squads split the season series, which included a 76-66 Tribe victory at Kaplan Arena.  In the win, the Green and Gold were led by senior Emily Correal's double-double of 19 points and 11 rebounds, while classmates Jaclyn McKenna and Janine Aldridge chipped in with 16 and 15 points, respectively.
