Game 7: Women’s at Kentucky
The Colonials travel to Lexington to take on the University of Kentucky wildcats in their second game in this weekend road swing the the bluegrass state. Antelia Parrish leads GW in points rebounds and assists. On another impressive note Freshman Tara Booker through three games is shooting 8-10 from beyond the arc and 12-18 from the field overall.
GW looks to rebound from its eight point loss to Western Kentucky on Friday. Kentucky went 17-16 (8-6) in the SEC last season and is 1-1 through two games this year, they lost to Michigan 70-60 and beat Cincinnati 58-55. GW defeated Kentucky 75-65 last year in Foggy Bottom. Jessica Adair posted a career high 29 points and snagged 14 boards. Adair, a preseason Wooden Award candidate, is averaging 11.3 points per game down from her 15.2 last year.
Important notes from the Western Kentucky game:
GW struggled with the Lady Topper’s trap turning the ball over on their own side of the court all too often. Western Kentucky scored 22 points off turnovers in comparison with GW’s nine. Kentucky likes to employ the same strategy so it will be important for the relatively inexperienced Colonial guards, Kayla Miller, Erica Rivera, and Stefani Munro to take care of the basketball, make smart passes and break the pressure.
Kentucky is lead by sophomore forward sensation Victoria Dunlap, who is averaging a shade over 20 points per game. She is the only Wildcat scoring in double figures.
The game has a 2 p.m. start time tomorrow.
