The George Mason women’s basketball team, fresh off two straight victories over Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) opponents, will face nationally-ranked Old Dominion at the Patriot Center for a showdown on Sunday, Jan. 13, at 2 p.m. The game takes place on Faculty/Staff Appreciation Day when tickets are only $1.

The Patriots, who are 8-6 overall and 2-1 in CAA competition, face a daunting task in upsetting the favored Monarchs. A young and talented trio of players will lead George Mason in the game: sophomore guard Jen Derevjanik, sophomore forward Vernessa Neamo, and freshman guard Laura Kooij.

Contests against Old Dominion have always attracted a large Patriot Center crowd, so plan to arrive early.
