Georgetown (7-2) has a six-game winning streak going after a 73-56 win over Wake Forest on Saturday in Washington, D.C. Rodgers had 12 points and three steals.

Rodgers has led the Lady Hoyas in scoring in seven of nine games this season, with a high of 29 points in a win at Central Michigan on Nov. 25. Rodgers was voted Big East Rookie of the Week two weeks ago.

Seating on the bus is limited and filling fast. This is the closest the Lady Hoyas will be to Suffolk this season.
