Mandy King (Southern Maine ‘98) is in her first season as head women's basketball coach at W&L. King came to W&L after serving as the assistant women's basketball coach at Bloomsburg University for two seasons. She also was a graduate assistant coach at the College of New Jersey for two seasons following graduation from the University of Southern Maine where she earned a bachelor of science in sports medicine in 1999. During her time at Bloomsburg, King helped the Huskies achieve a 36-17 overall record and two berths to the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Tournament. The 2001-02 squad finished the season 21-6 overall and was ranked as high as second nationally in Division II. As assistant coach, King served as recruiting coordinator and was responsible for on-court coaching, scouting and game preparation. This season marks Erin Shaw's (Southern Maine ‘02) first as an assistant women's basketball coach at W&L. Shaw, a 2002 graduate of Southern Maine, comes to Lexington after serving as the assistant women's basketball coach at her alma mater last season. Amy Forbes (Salisbury ‘01) enters her second season as an assistant for the Generals. Forbes is also the assistant women’s soccer coach, and helped W&L win its second-straight ODAC title this season, and advance to the NCAA South Region Championship.


Jean Willi (Bridgewater, ‘80) is in her eighth season as the head coach at Bridgewater. She has guided the Eagles to a 145-49 overall record, three NCAA Division III appearances and the 1998-99 ODAC Championship, as well as the 1999-2000 and 2000-01 regular season ODAC titles. Willi is assisted by Cyndi Justice and David Wade. Joy Scruggs returns for her 23rd season at the helm of Emory & Henry.

Nan Hambrose enters her fourth season as the head coach for St. Mary’s (Md.). She is assisted by Jake Heibel and Ken Broomer.


Washington and Lee’s match-up with Bridgewater marks the 17th meeting between the Generals and the Eagles. Bridgewater leads the all-time series, 14-2, including a pair of wins over W&L last season. In their last match-up with the Eagles, the Generals fell, 57-40, on February 19, 2003. Emory & Henry holds a 12-5 advantage in its all-time series with W&L, while the Generals emerged victorious in their one previous match-up with St. Mary’s (Md.).

Seven of Washington and Lee’s round-ballers are multiple-sport athletes, with junior forward Emily Barker and sophomore guards Ashley Brown and Sarah Williamson leading the way as three sport athletes.

Junior guard Bethany Dannelly needed only two years to write herself into the W&L record book. She combined 84 assists last season with a program-record 152 assists as a freshman to become W&L’s all-time leader for assists in a career (236). She finished last season third on the team with 8.0 points per game and swiped a co-team-high 43 steals. Dannelly scored a career-high 14 points on four occasions last season.


Sophomore guard Louisa Feve came to Lexington from Potomac, Md., and quickly made a name for herself in the Generals’ basketball program. In her inaugural season, she was second on the team with a 12.8 points per game average that ranks her 10th all-time for points per game in a season. She took the 11th spot on the W&L all-time list for points in a season (307) and became the Generals’ all-time leader for three-pointers made in a season (37). Adding to her initial success, she has already set career-high’s this season for rebounds in a game with 12 (vs. RMWC, 11/25/03) and assists in a game with six (at Peace, 11/21/03).


Freshman forward Jessica Hunsinger and freshman guard Sarah Otey both made an immediate impact in the Generals’ ranks. Hunsinger now leads W&L with 14.7 points per game after recording a career-high 20 points in the Generals victory over RMWC. Otey is averaging 8.3 points per game after scoring 10 points against the WildCats.


For the season, the Generals are averaging 55.3 points per game and have hit 54-for-164 from the field for a 32.9 shooting percentage. Washington and Lee is 8-for-42 (19.0%) from beyond the three-point arc and 50-for-78 (64.1%) from the charity stripe this season. King’s squad is also averaging 38.7 rebounds per game, 15.3 assists per game, 13.3 turnovers per game and 3.3 blocks per game.
