ASN-Lauren-Chase-POWASN-Caira Washington-POWBack to George Washington with love: Colonials Lauren Chase (left) and Caira Washington (right) share the ASN women’s Player of the Week honors.

Washington posted a double-double in each game of the Atlantic 10 tournament except the championship game — she fell one point shy. Over the course of three wins and an A-10 tournament title, she averaged 14 points and 12 rebounds.

Chase, who has been an outstanding facilitator for the Colonials all season long, averaged 9 points and 7.6 assists. She was tasked with guarding A-10- Co-POY April Robinson of Duquesne in the championship and held her below her season average. Chase kept her team focused and locked in.
