GW sophomore forward Kelli Prange finished with a game high 21 points on 9 of 12 shooting from the field
The level of optimism is at an all time high for the GW women's program. The talent on hand has brought huge expectations for a deep NCAA tourney run come next March, although, they have a lot of business to handle before then. Sunday, we had our first look at the loaded GW Women's team and they didn't disappoint, cruising to a 95-47 win over Christopher Newport. Sophomore forward Kelli Prange was unconscious all game, scoring a game high 21 points on 9 of 12 shooting from the field including 2 of 3 from 3-point range in 19 minutes of action. Along with Prange, the rest of GW's frontcourt dominated. Caira Washington added 15 points and 5 rebounds while center Jonquel Jones posted 14 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assist and 3 blocks, Gr point guard Lauren Chase controlled the pace like a vet, finishing with 7 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assist and 2 steals. GW started the game on a 15-0 run and was never threatened after that. GW shot 47.6 percent the field while holding Christopher Newport to 25.8 percent for the game. Jalynn Ponzo led Christopher Newport with 12 points.
GW will open the season this Saturday at 2pm as they host Grambling State.
