Women’s basketball picked to finish eighth

Originally posted to Courtside:

The GW women’s basketball team is expected to finish eighth in the 14-team Atlantic 10 conference, according to a poll of the conference’s head coaches released Wednesday.

The Colonials were 17-14 overall and 9-5 in the A-10 last season during head coach Mike Bozeman’s first year in the position, losing in the first round of the WNIT.

Sophomores Tara Booker and Tiana Myers are the team’s returning leading scorers.

GW’s season will begin Nov. 17 at North Texas before returning to D.C. for their first home game against Coppin State Nov. 19.
