KING OF THE GENERALS:
Mandy King (Southern Maine ’98) is in her third season as head women’s basketball coach at W&L and has a career record of 28-41 (.406). Last season, King led the Generals to a four-game improvement from her initial campaign, tying a school record with 13 victories. Additionally, she guided two players to all-conference honors while leading W&L to the ODAC postseason tournament where the Generals fell to eventual NCAA runner-up Randolph-Macon. King’s first season resulted in a six-game improvement over the previous season and also included a bid to the ODAC Postseason Tournament. Under her direction, two players earned All-ODAC honors and another finished second in the balloting for the conference rookie of the year award. Dean’na Mitchelson (Virginia ’02) is in her second season as assistant women’s basketball coach at W&L. Prior to her arrival, Mitchelson served as head women’s basketball coach at Robert E. Lee High School during the 2003-04 season. Mitchelson captained the women’s basketball team at the University of Virginia where she was a four-year letterwinner. Kristen McCandless (TCNJ ‘03) is in her first season as an assistant coach with the Generals.
Roanoke head coach Susan Dunagan is 478-181 (.725) in her 25 seasons as the helm of the Maroons.
W&L is 0-23 all-time against Roanoke, including a 75-58 loss on Jan. 10.
RIPPING THE NET:
The Generals are 6-3 when they shoot at least 40 percent from the field, but 0-8 when their shooting percentage is below 40 percent.
LAST TIME OUT:
Washington and Lee senior guard Louisa Feve scored a season-high 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the Generals past Mary Baldwin, 69-62, on Thursday evening in Staunton, Va. The Generals led just 30-29 at the break, but started the second half on an 11-3 run to assume a 41-32 lead with 15:57 remaining in the game. The Fighting Squirrels rebounded to knot the game at 45-45 with 11:52 left, but a 13-5 W&L run gave the Generals a 58-50 advantage with 8:04 remaining. MBC sliced the lead to 59-56 with 4:10 remaining, but could get no closer. Junior center Jessica Hunsinger totaled 17 points, seven rebounds and two blocks, and is now just three points shy of 1,000 for her career. Sophomore forward Kristen Krouchick chipped in 16 points, seven rebounds and four steals for the Generals.
Washington and Lee plays three home games next week. It hosts Eastern Mennonite on Tuesday (7:00 pm), Randolph-Macon Woman’s College on Saturday (2:00 pm) and Lynchburg on Sunday (2:00 pm).
Roanoke has an overall record of 9-8 and a 6-7 mark in the ODAC. The Maroons have lost three consecutive games, including a 55-46 loss at Eastern Mennonite on Wednesday.

The Maroons were led by junior guard Cindy McGraw, who scored a team-high 12 points with four rebounds and three steals. Sophomore guard Stephanie Morrisey added nine points and seven rebounds.

The Maroons led by as many as 14 points (33-19) with 5:55 left in the first half and went into halftime with a 43-32 advantage. Roanoke would maintain a double-digit lead throughout the entire second half as it shot 45.2 percent (28-of-62) from the field. The Generals shot just 36.2 percent (21-of-58), but held a 42-39 edge in rebounds.

RECORD SETTING GAME:
W&L had a record-setting game in a 89-75 win over Emory & Henry on Tuesday.
