Scouting the Tribe
Playing arguably its best basketball of the season, the Tribe travels to Wilmington, N.C., riding a two-game winning streak after defeating conference foes Towson (59-50) and Old Dominion (73-69) last week.  In Sunday's victory over the Monarchs, senior Janine Aldridge led the Green and Gold with 26 points on a career-high 11 made field goals.  The Massapequa, N.Y., native was a prefect 6-of-6 from the floor in the second half.  Meanwhile, junior Kaitlyn Mathieu posted her third career double-double against ODU, which consisted of 19 points and 10 rebounds.  The Green and Gold will square off against the Seahawks for the second time this season with an overall record of 4-14 and a CAA ledger of 2-5.

Senior Emily Correal's 15.4 ppg and 8.0 rebounds per outing rank sixth and seventh, respectively, in the CAA.  The Venetia, Pa., native has netted 20 or more points on eight occasions this season which included a career-high 30 points in the contest at North Carolina A&T.  Classmate Janine Aldridge ranks eighth in the league in scoring (14.2), while her 58 3-pointers are tops in the conference.  Furthermore, Aldridge's 3.4 treys per game not only lead the CAA but also rank fourth in the nationally.

W&M's 62.8 points per game rank sixth in the CAA, while its 11.5 steals per contest rank 38nd nationally and first in the league.  Furthermore, of the Tribe's 412 made field goals this season, 270 have been accounted for with assists, giving the Green and Gold an average of 15.0 per outing, which ranks third in the CAA.  From 3-point range, the Tribe has netted 114 treys on the season, which is second most in the league, only behind Northeastern (152).  

Scouting UNCW
The Seahawks enter Thursday night's tilt with a record of 2-15 and a 1-5 mark in CAA action.  UNCW is currently on a four-game skid, which included a 55-53 setback at Towson on Sunday.  In the contest against the Tigers, Karneshia Garrett and Dana Brown led UNCW with 14 points apiece.

Jessica Freeman leads the Seahawks in scoring at 10.4 ppg, while her 2.2 steals per outing rank sixth in the CAA.  Garrett is netting 9.1 points per outing as her team-leading 10.5 rebounds per contest lead the CAA and rank 27th nationally.  Kelva Atkins is tallying 9.8 points per game, while her 45 assists on the year lead UNCW.  Offensively, UNCW is scoring 50.9 points per outing, which ranks 11th in the CAA.  Furthermore, the Seahawks are allowing 63.6 points per contest, which stands ninth in the league.

News and Notes:
- Thursday night's contest will be the 60th meeting between W&M and UNCW as the Tribe owns a 30-29 series advantage.  Additionally, the match up will be the second meeting between the two schools this season.  On Jan. 8, the Green and Gold fell at home to the Seahawks, 61-52.  Seniors Janine Aldridge and Emily Correal led W&M in the contest with 12 points each.

- For the second time in as many tries, the William and Mary women's basketball team defeated Old Dominion, 73-69, on Sunday afternoon at Kaplan Arena.  Last season, the Tribe used a second half run to down ODU, and on Sunday, the Green and Gold stymied the Monarch's with a late defensive stop in the waning seconds of the contest. 

- In the Green and Gold's 59-50 victory over Towson, W&M never trailed in the second half as senior Janine Aldridge paced the Tribe with 15 points and four steals, while sophomore Anna Kestler poured in a career-high 11 points.  

- Senior Janine Aldridge, who is the College's all-time leader in 3-pointers made with 279, is in range to become W&M's all-time leader in steals.  The Massapequa, N.Y., native is just 26 thefts shy of passing Jen Sobota '03 for the all-time mark (257).  In the College's outing at Northeastern, Aldridge set a career-high with seven steals against the Huskies.  This season, Aldridge is averaging 2.8 steals per game, which stands second in the CAA.  Aldridge and Sobota are the only players in W&M history to tally 1,000 points, 200 3-pointers and 200 steals.

- The William and Mary women's basketball team will host its annual Breast Cancer Awareness game "Hoops for a Cure" on Friday, Feb. 15, against Northeastern at 8 p.m.  Admission to the contest will be free of charge for fans who wear pink.  Promotional t-shirts will go on sale prior to Feb. 15 and can be purchased at upcoming men's basketball home games or by calling the W&M Women's Basketball Office at 757-221-3140.  T-shirts will be sold for the price of $10 for students and $15 for adults.  This year's "Hoops for a Cure" game against the Huskies will be televised on Comcast Sports Network Mid-Atlantic and the Comcast Sports Network New England.

- Senior Emily Correal has made 105 starts for the Green and Gold over the course of her career, which ranks fourth in school history.  Jen Sobota currently owns the school record with 113 starts.  Additionally, Correal is only four blocks shy of becoming only the fourth player in school history to post 100 career blocks.

- Her 105 starts rank fourth all-time in the Tribe record books and with at least 13 games remaining in the season, Correal will need 19 starts to pass Jen Sobota (113) for the W&M record for most starts in a career.
