#13/#16 UMW Women's Basketball Opens 2012-13 Season on Friday Night vs. Va. Wesleyan

The #13/#16-ranked University of Mary Washingotn women's basketball team will open the 2012-13 season tonight in Ashland, Va. against Virginia Wesleyan College at 8:00 p.m.

The Eagles will look to continue the magic from last season, which saw the team win its first 30 straight games and vault to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Division III Tournament. Returning starters include senior center Carol Dye and juniors Sam Partonen and Aby Diop. Sophomore Aubrey Howland will look to continue to develop into a top post threat as well.
