Women’s players to watch

Danni Jackson

Year: Junior

Position: Guard

Height: 5-foot-3

Hometown: Dumfries, Va.

Jackson carried an injured GW roster last season, leading the Colonials and finishing 29th in the A-10 in scoring, averaging 10.4 points per game. She also led the team, and was fourth in the A-10, with assists per game, averaging 4.2. This year, head coach Mike Bozeman wants his biggest source of offensive firepower to switch from point guard to shooting guard.

Sara Mostafa

Year: Senior

Position: Center

Height: 6-foot-5

Hometown: Galloway, N.J.

Mostafa averaged 8.1 points on 42.7 percent shooting and 4.0 rebounds last season. Head coach Mike Bozeman believes Mostafa can be a commanding force in the post for the Colonials, and has structured his new motion-oriented offense to better utilize her skills.

Tara Booker

Year: Senior

Position: Forward/Guard

Height: 6-foot-1

Hometown: Galloway, N.J.

Booker led the Colonials with 58 three-pointers last season, earning eighth place on the all-time list at GW. She lead her team in treys and in rebounds, averaging 6.8 per game, and averaged 9.3 points per game. Booker returned to the court last season after a knee injury ended her sophomore campaign, and she will be looked to this year to provide a consistent source of offensive power for the Colonials as the team looks to make a comeback.
