George Washington hosted it's annual media day to introduce the 2016-2017 men's and women's basketball team respectively. The Women's program ushers in a new era with the hiring of head coach Jennifer Rizzotti. Rizzotti, a former UConn standout and head coach at Hartford where under her watch, she guided the program to 316 victories, five American East Championships and six NCAA appearances, is looking to build on the recent success of the program and take it to new heights. Rizzotti will lean heavily on senior forward Caira Washington to carry a large load. Washington, an Atlantic 10 All-Conference First Team selection averaged 13.2 points and 8.8 rebounds last season, helping lead the Colonials to a A-10 regular season and conference championship, finishing with a 26-7 overall record. During media day, Rizzotti and Washington sat down to discuss the goals for the upcoming season, the elevated leadership of Washington and Rizzotti's no nonsense approach.
