CHARLESTON, S.C. – The College of Charleston women’s basketball team (9-15; 4-9 vs. CAA) will look to get back to its winning ways Sunday, when it will host the William & Mary Tribe (13-12; 4-10 vs. CAA) at 2 p.m for the school’s Play4Kay game.
The Cougars previously met the Tribe this season in a thrilling road-game that went down to the wire. With the game tied late, Kelsey Booth nailed a big three with no time left on the shot clock and only nine seconds left in the game to lift the College to the eventual 55-51 win.
CofC comes off a tough home loss on education day to the Elon Phoenix on Friday, when they fell 54-38. Though Bre Bolden and Jackie Luna-Castro would combine for 25 points in the game, Elon proved to be too much on the glass, and rose up in the second half to seal the game.
William & Mary got off to a blazing fast 11-2 start this season, and looked poised to do great things. However, they were hit with a devastating mid-season lower-body season-ending injury to star-center Abby Rendle. Since then, the Tribe has lost seven of their last eight, and have dropped their last five straight. They come fresh off an 83-63 loss to James Madison, who avenged their loss to W&M from the beginning of conference-play.
The Tribe gets excellent play out of its guards, as evidenced by their league-best averages in steals (9.7 SPG), assists (15.4 APG) and turnover margin (+3.1). However, since Rendle’s injury, William & Mary have had a tough time on the glass, and are dead-last in the CAA in rebounding margin (-5.8).
