SERIES VS. HIGH POINT

After a three-game road trip, the Runnin' Bulldogs return home to host High Point on Friday night at 7 p.m. in Paul Porter Arena. Gardner-Webb is coming off a 59-55 overtime win at Radford on Monday night, in which the Runnin' Bulldogs hauled down 64 rebounds for the game, tying the program's DI mark for the most rebounds in a single game.  High Point has won two straight games, both of which came at home over PC and Winthrop, and will look to hold on to second-place heading into the conference tournament in two weeks. The two teams' have not met since back on January 2nd, as the Panthers defeated GWU 63-41 in High Point, N.C.  The loss ended the Runnin' Bulldogs winning streak over the Panthers at six games, and was the first time that GWU had lost to High Point on the hardwood in women's basketball action since back in 2008-09. GWU is 4-2 at home versus the Panthers since 2001-02, including having won the last four home meetings in Paul Porter Arena.

CLEANING THE GLASS RECORD STYLE

Gardner-Webb hauled in 64 total rebounds in their overtime win over Radford last Monday night.  The 64 total rebounds tied the GWU Division I record for the most rebounds in a single game by a women's basketball team.  GWU had 31 offensive rebounds for the game and had 19 more rebounds (64-45) then Radford.  GWU's Jessica Heilig had a career-high 15 rebounds, while Catrina Green pulled down 13 boards herself in the win.

ATTACKING WITH NO FEAR

Over the Runnin' Bulldogs last three games GWU has been attacking without fear on the offensive end and getting to the free throw line more often then their opponents.  In fact, over the last three games, GWU has averaged over 32 free throw attempts per contest.  After shooting 17 free throws at Longwood, GWU went to the charity stripe 39 times last Saturday at Liberty and 42 times last Monday night in the overtime win at Radford.

NOT OUT OF THE HUNT JUST YET

GWU is still in the mix for a spot in the 2012 Advance Auto Parts Big South Women's Basketball Championship Tournament come March 9-11 in High Point, N.C.   The Runnin' Bulldogs are in need of a win to help assure them a spot in the postseason conference tournament.

LAST TIME OUT

The Gardner-Webb women's basketball team overcame another poor shooting night by hauling down 31 offensive rebounds on Monday night to upset the Radford Highlanders, 59-55, in overtime at the Dedmon Center in Radford, Va. The overtime game was the third between these two schools over the last five meetings with the Runnin' Bulldogs winning all three games. Leading the way for Gardner-Webb was, senior Brianna Dillard with a team-high 17 points to go along with nine rebounds and three steals, while guard Jasmine Dale added nine points and was a perfect 4-of-4 from the charity stripe.  Freshman Jessica Heilig added eight points and brought down nine rebounds, while fellow freshman KiKi Smith chipped in with eight points as well. Gardner-Webb improves to 4-0 on the year when leading at the halftime break. Despite shooting only 26 percent from the floor, as the Runnin' Bulldogs were 17-of-66 for the game, head coach Rick Reeves' team was 22-of-42 (52.4 percent) from the free throw line and held a decisive 64 to 45 rebound advantage for the contest.
