SERIES VS. UNC ASHEVILLE

Saturday night's round two of the "Battle of the Bulldogs" is an important match up for both teams, as the two are separated by only two games in the Big South Conference regular season standings.  GWU will look to defeat UNC Asheville and gain ground on the Runnin' Bulldogs, as the two fight for the last and final spot for the 2012 Big South Women's Basketball Championship Tournament in March.  The Runnin' Bulldogs, who have dropped nine straight will look to snap their current losing streak and post their second conference win of the season.  Asheville, who has lost six straight games themselves, are two games ahead of GWU with their three conference wins on the season.  Asheville defeated GWU 74-62 earlier this season and has won two out of the last four meetings between the two teams.  GWU is 3-2 versus the Asheville Bulldogs in Paul Porter Arena all-time and are in need of a home win, having gone 1-8 in front of the home crowd thus far this season.
