Navy Update
Navy (24-9, RPI of 122) rallied from a 10-point fourth quarter deficit to defeat George Washington (RPI: 54), 61-51 in overtime, Friday night in Washington, D.C., in a first round WNIT game. The win, which tied the school record for the most wins in a year, was the first win by Navy in a post-season tournament in program history. It also was the second WNIT win by a Patriot League team.

Virginia Tech Update
Virginia Tech (18-13, RPI of 105) advanced to the second round of the WNIT with a 76-62 victory over Rider Friday night at home. The Hokies, who are competing in the WNIT for a fifth time, tied for 11th place in the ACC with a mark of 4-12

The Series
In addition to it being the first in the series between the teams, Sunday’s game also will be the second of the season and sixth in school history (0-5) for the Mids against an ACC team. Navy lost a 75-65 decision at Wake Forest in the 2016-17 season opener for both teams. Virginia Tech has compiled a 6-1 record against teams from the Patriot League and last faced a team from the league during the 2013-14 season (defeated Bucknell).
