Dallas: G-Dub Hanging Tough with Heels

By Jean Neuberger - March 25, 2007

N. Carolina scored the first six right away, but the Colonials have answered, as Carolina now leads 6-4 at the first media timeout.

Sylvia Hatchell's plan is simple for Carolina: pound it inside and let Rashanda McCants take control of the game. Ivory Latta's staying around the perimeter, and has yet to take a shot. She's passing it inside, but G-Dub has drawn two charges, aware of UNC's early plans.

Meanwhile, GW knows that UNC is bigger inside, so their plan is to keep passing around the perimeter and find an open shot when they can against the bigger, faster Tar Heels. So far though, the Colonials have done well against the NC attack.

Seriously, the Colonials have brought cheering to a whole new level here. Their band has a huge flag, face paint, and are chanting any and everything they can think of at the moment, while their fans laugh and cheer along. What a spirited group from our nation's capital!

send me an email (rlintott@gwu.edu) if you want a detail picture of the flag. I bought it in 2005 for the women's NCAA (at UNC) and have had it signed by every member of the team to go through. Each year, I give it back to one of the players and have them get the new player's signatures. And in case you were wondering why the band loves this team so much... they thank us after almost every game and always say hi to us on the street. It's hard not to LOVE a team that you are senselessly devoted to and that seems to return the sentiment.
