Feature on a current player on the Mason women's team, doing quite well this season.

Great feature on women's basketball graduate student Natalie Butler in the Washington Post! Dan Steinberg writes about Butler's journey back home and her impact this season with the Patriots as she leads the country in rebounding (15.2 rpg) and is tied for the most double-doubles (17) in the country! #GetPatriotic
