Scouting the Tribe
On Wednesday night, the College downed Virginia Union, 78-44, for its first win of the season.  Behind a stout defensive effort that forced 36 turnovers and a school-record tying 21 steals, the Green and Gold utilized a 24-7 first half run to outdistanced itself from VUU. 

Individually, sophomore Kyla Kerstetter posted career-best totals in points (14), steals (8), assists (6) and rebounds (6) against Panthers.  Additionally, her eight steals tied a W&M single-game record.  Senior Janine Aldridge continued her scoring output as the Massapequa, N.Y., native totaled a game-high 15 points on 6-of-13 shooting from the floor.

Scouting George Washington
Under the direction of first-year head coach Jonathan Tsipis, the Colonials enter Sunday's tilt with a record of 1-1. GW opened the season with an 80-47 home victory over the University of Texas at Arlington.  Senior Danni Jackson led the Colonials with 13 points and seven assists against the Mavericks.  On Wednesday, GW dropped a hard-fought contest at Rutgers, 56-52, as Jackson set the tone with 10 points, four steals and three assists.

Jackson paces the Colonials with 11.5 points per game, while senior Megan Nipe is averaging 10 points and six rebounds per outing.  Although the Colonials have been outscored in the first-half this season, 48-47, they have outscored the opposition 85-55 following intermission.

News and Notes:
- Sunday's game will be the 20th meeting between W&M and George Washington as the Tribe owns a 10-9 series edge.  Last season, seniors Emily Correal and Janine Aldridge poured in 20 and 13 points, respectively, but it was GW that came away with a 74-66 win at Kaplan Arena.

- The trip to George Washington will start a seven-game road trip for the Green and Gold.  After its tilt against the Colonials, the Tribe will play a pair of contests in the University of Texas at San Antonio's Thanksgiving Tournament, before traveling to the Naval Academy on Dec. 4.  The trip continues with a contest at Radford on Dec. 8, before a 12-day break for exams.  After semester finals, W&M will play at North Carolina A&T on Dec. 21.  The road stint ends with a trip to Ithaca, N.Y., as the Tribe will face Cornell on Dec. 30.  In all, the seven-game trip will cover five states and 5, 612 miles, which is the equivalent of traveling from Miami, Fla., to Anchorage, Alaska.     

- Fifth-year senior Janine Aldridge is just seven steals shy of becoming the sixth player in W&M history with 200 career thefts. Aldridge tallied a season-high five steals at Pittsburgh and tallied three swipes against Virginia Union.  The Massapequa, N.Y., native is averaging 3.3 steals per game year.

- Senior Janine Aldridge is 23 points shy of scoring 1,000 for her career.  The Massapequa, N.Y., native is the College's all-time leader in 3-pointers made with 230, while her 92 treys last season set a new W&M single-season mark.  In addition, Senior Forward Emily Correal is 86 points away from joining the Tribe's 1,000 point club.  For her career, the Venetia, Pa., native has scored 927 points in 90 appearances for the Tribe. If the duo reaches the 1,000 point milestone, they will become the 15th and 16th players in program history to hit the mark.

- Tribe senior forward Emily Correal was named the Colonial Athletic Association Co-Player of the Week on Monday. In the season opener against East Carolina, the Venetia, Pa., native tied a school record with 21 rebounds, while she poured in a game-high 24 points on 10-of-23 shooting from the floor.  Additionally, she became only the third player in school history for record a 20-point and 20-rebound game. On Sunday at Pitt, the local Pittsburgh area product led the Tribe with 27 points and 10 rebounds. The 27 points tied a career-high, while the double-double was the 19th of her career.
