Autumn and her twin sister Amber Lau, are the leading scorers of the team with 19.5 and 14.1 points per game.  Lawerence is right behind the sisters averaging 10.3 points, while Priscilla Fenty continues to dominate in the paint by averaging seven rebounds a game. 

Converse (0-21, 0-16) will be seeking their first win of the season.  The Valkyries are led by Samira Gillcrese who is averaging 10.2-points per game.

Saturday's game is "Play 4Kay."  "Play 4Kay" is a weeklong initiative across women's basketball to raise breast cancer awareness and funds for research across campuses, in communities and beyond.  All proceeds from the week benefit the Kay Yow Breast Cancer Foundation. 

Tip-off for Saturday's game is scheduled for 2:00 p.m., in the Timberlake-Lawton gymnasium.
