Scouting the Tribe
The College travels to Boston on Thursday evening with an overall record of 2-11 and a 0-2 mark in CAA play.  On tuesday night, W&M dropped a hard fought contest to UNCW, 61-52, at Kaplan Arena.  In a game of runs, the College started the second half on a 10-2 blitz and extended its lead to as many as 14, 40-26, with 14:00 left in regulation.  However, UNCW responded with a run of its own as it scored the night's final 11 points en route to the win.  Senior Emily Correal paced the Tribe with 12 points and eight rebounds, while classmate Janine Aldridge also finished the evening with 12 points on four 3-pointers.

Correal leads the W&M attack with 16.7 points per game, which rank fourth in the CAA.  In addition, Correal's 8.5 rebounds per outing stand fifth in the conference.  Aldridge is netting 13.2 points per contest, which rank ninth in the league.  The Massapequa, N.Y., native is one of the CAA's top threats from 3-point range.  Aldridge ranks seventh all-time in CAA history with 261 3-pointers, while her 40 trifectas this season are tops in the conference.

As a team, W&M is scoring 63.9 points per contest, which ranks fifth in the CAA.  Furthermore, the Tribe has tallied 154 steals on the season which are tops in the league.  The Tribe's 84 3-pointers on the season stand second in the conference, while its 15.4 assists per game rank third.       

Scouting the Huskies
Under the direction of seventh-year head coach Daynia La-Force, the Huskies entertain the Tribe with a record of 8-4 and a 1-0 ledger in CAA action.  The Huskies opened conference play with a 69-63 win over George Mason.  Northeastern, who is 6-0 at home this season, opened the second-half against the Patriots on a 34-7 run en route to winning its league opener.  Sophomore A'lece Mark led NU with 17 points, while redshirt senior Kashaia Cannon netted 15 points.

Northeastern's 69.4 points per game rank first in the CAA, while its scoring defense of 56.2 stands in fourth.  The Huskies lead the league in scoring margin (+13.2), while its field goal percentage (.424) and 3-point percentage (.380) rank second.  Senior Deanna Kerkhof leads the Huskies with 15.4 ppg, while Cannon is pouring in 12.5 per outing.  Kerkhof's 3-point percentage (.451) is tops in the CAA, while she ranks seventh in scoring.

News and Notes:
- Thursday night's game will be the 10th meeting between the Tribe and Northeastern, as NU owns a 6-3 series advantage.  Last year, in its only match up of the season, the Huskies prevailed over the Green and Gold, 82-71, in Boston.  In the contest, senior Janine Aldridge netted a career-high 27 points, all of which coming on a W&M single-game record of nine 3-pointers.

- Senior Emily Correal continues to cement her stake in the Tribe record books.  With her recent double-double of 20 points and 12 rebounds at Hofstra, Correal now stands fourth all-time in program history with 21 career double-doubles.  Additionally, with her 1,000 career-point at Radford on Dec. 8, she became the 10th fastest player to reach the milestone in school history (92 games). 

- Sophomore point-guard Anna Kestler earned her first collegiate start at North Carolina A&T and posted career-highs in assists and steals.  Kestler dished out a career-best seven assists, while recording a career-high five steals against the Aggies.
