HISTORY  WashU is 54-19 all-time vs. NYU, most recently beating the Violets 74-56 on Jan. 18 in New York. The Bears have a two-game win streak over Brandeis and an all-time mark of 57-4.

WINNING STREAK SNAPPED The Bears 10-game winning streak was snapped on the road against Emory last Friday. WashU attempted a late rally but the Eagles big third quarter proved too much to overcome as the Bears fell 75-66. The Red & Green borrowed a similar strategy against Rochester beating the Yellowjackets 61-53 after a 26-point third quarter fueled the win. Senior guard Rachael Sondag scored 13 of her 17 points in the third quarter, while senior forward Madeline Homoly posted a game-high 19 points and 10 rebounds for her seventh double-double of the year.

DISH IT REAL GOOD Senior guard Becca Clark-Callender has totaled 74 assists in UAA play this season which is 20 assists shy of tying the record for a single season in strictly conference play (Lindsey Tse, Emory - 94 in 2017-18).

STRENGTH OF SCHEDULE According to D3hoops.com strength of schedule calculations the Bears have the sixth most difficult schedule in DIII (.599). The formula incorporates two-thirds opponents' winning percentage (OWP) and one-third opponents' opponents' winning percentage (OOWP).
