LAST TIME OUT
Richmond battled cross-town rival VCU (9-7, 2-1 A-10) from start to finish on Thursday night in the Siegel Center but it was VCU that was able to hold off the surging Spiders down the stretch to pick up the, 62-55, victory. Jaide Hinds-Clarke continued her rise to prominence with the first double-double (10 points, 11 rebounds) of her career alongside veteran Lauren Tolson who dropped 17 points for the second-straight game and grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Spiders on offense. Ragan Wiseman joined that duo in double figures with 10 points after knocking down a trio of three balls.
HINDS-CLARKE NAMED A-10 ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
For the second-straight week, Richmond freshman Jaide Hinds-Clarke has been named the Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week following a pair of outstanding performances that resulted in two Spider wins. The freshman averaged 11 points and 3.5 rebounds for the week, including a 12-point, four-rebound effort to open A-10 play vs. SJU.
Lauren Tolson returned for a fifth and final season in 2016 after being granted an extra year of eligibility following an injury that knocked her out after just eight games last season. She averaged 13.4 points per game before she went. She struggled to find her way back in the early going this season but since returning to the starting lineup five games ago she has averaged 14.8 points including a double-double (10 pts, 11 reb) opposite Morgan State and back-to-back 17-point outings since.
SPEAKING OF DEFENSE
The Spiders currently rank second in the Atlantic 10 in scoring defense (58.1 ppg), fourth in field goal percentage defense (.366) and first in 3-point field goal percentage defense (.260). The team finished fourth in scoring defense (59.6 ppg) last season.
CLIMBING THE LADDER
Senior guard Janelle Hubbard will end her career as one of the greatest scorers in program history. After a brief lull towards the end of the non-conference schedule, Hubbard responded with 16 points off the bench in the A-10 opener and eight at VCU putting her just five points shy of Abby Oliver and 7th on the all-time scoring list.
