Against the Lady Govs, the Tribe stormed out of the gates, connecting on its first eight shots, as it commanded an early 20-5 advantage. Nearing the end of the first half, Austin Peay cut the deficit to six, 40-34, before junior Kaitlyn Mathieu buried a 3-pointer which increased the Tribe's advantage at intermission, 43-34.  The College opened the second stanza on a 17-8 run as it distanced itself from Austin Peay en route to its second win of the season.

Through five games, senior Emily Correal is averaging 17.2 points and 10.6 rebounds per contest, while classmate Janine Aldridge is pouring in 14.8 points per outing to go along with 14 steals.  Senior Taylor Hilton has dished out a team-high 20 assists and is scoring 10.6 points per game.

Scouting the Roadrunners
Under the direction of 13th-year head coach Rae Rippetoe-Blair UTSA plays host to the Tribe with a record of 4-1.  On Friday night, the Roadrunners defeated Austin Peay, 69-67, as sophomore Kamra King led the UTSA charge with 10 points.  Furthermore, five other Roadrunners scored seven points or more as freshman Niaga Mitchell-Cole led that group with nine points and eight rebounds.

Individually, senior Simone Young is averaging 8.4 points per contest as she headlines a group of eight Roadrunners who are averaging five or more points per game.  Furthermore, 13 UTSA players are averaging 10 or more minutes per contest.  In its victory over Austin Peay, the Roadrunners played 14 players as Young headlined the charge with eight points and eight rebounds.

News and Notes:
- Sunday afternoon's game will be the first ever meeting between W&M and UTSA.  For the College, it will mark the second time in program history that it has faced an opponent from the Western Athletic Conference (WAC).  In 2009, the Tribe defeated Seattle, 69-58, as seniors Janine Aldridge and Emily Correal poured in 15 and six points, respectively, against the Redhawks.  Additionally, UTSA will face a Colonial Athletic Association team for only the second time in school history, as the Roadrunners were defeated by Drexel, 64-37, in a game played in San Diego, Calif., during the 2010 season.

William and Mary women's basketball head coach Debbie Taylor announced the signing of forward Kasey Curtis (Manassas, Va./Paul VI) guard Alexis Hofstaedter (Richboro, Pa./Council Rock), guard Latrice Hunter (Norfolk, Va./Norfolk Christian) and guard Marlena Tremba (Vienna, Va./Paul VI) to National Letters of Intent on November, 18.  Curtis, Hofstaedter, Hunter and Tremba will be eligible to compete for the Tribe in the Fall of 2013.

- The trip to George Washington started a seven-game road trip for the Green and Gold.  After the 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.

- On November 25, the Green and Gold own an all-time record of 2-4.  The College last played on the 25th day of the month during the 1998-99 season as it defeated Elon at Kaplan Arena, 71-54.
