RICHMOND, Va. - Redshirt senior G.G. Goodhope was named Virginia Lottery Student-Athlete of the Week for her effort in helping the VCU Women's Basketball team to two victories last week.
Goodhope had a clutch performance in a 72-64 win eighth-seeded Richmond in the first round of the Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball Championship on Sunday, Feb. 26. The Norfolk, Virginia native scored 15 points over 25 minutes and assisted on four baskets while hauling in two rebounds.
In the regular season finale against Davidson on Tuesday, February 21, Goodhope came down with four rebounds and two steals en route to a 54-47 win to help the Rams secure a home game in the A-10 Women's Basketball Championship. She also scored five points in the contest.
The senior was also named to the Atlantic 10 All-Academic Team for the 2016-17 season.
"After I graduate I am going overseas to Hungary to shadow doctors. After that I'm thinking about joining the military after I take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) and then hopefully I will be going to medical school next fall," Goodhope said.
Goodhope and the No. 8 seed Rams will face No. 1 seed Dayton on Friday, March 3 at 11 a.m. in the Atlantic 10 Women's Basketball Championship Second Round.
