Making Women Financially Savvy And Saving Them Money

ARLINGTON, Va. (WUSA) -- Women tend to have less money as they get older because they live longer and make less money over their lives compared to men. But a financial education course in Northern Virginia, geared specifically to women, can help women make smarter financial decisions for themselves.

The problem for most women is a lack of planning and not focusing on themselves, according to Jennifer Abel, an accredited financial expert and senior extension agent with the Virginia Cooperative Extension. It is "partly due to the fact that we tend to leave the workforce more often than men to care for children or aging parents," Abel told 9NEWS NOW. "So we have to stretch less money over a longer period of time."

T.C. Williams Defeats West Potomac 62-49

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- T.C. Williams withstood a respectable fourth quarter come back effort from West Potomac  to defeat the Wolverines, 62-49, on Friday night.

It was a game won on three-point shooting and lost because of communication struggles on the defensive end. Both teams were slow to settle into the match-up but picked up the tempo in the second quarter, combining for 31 total points.

The Titans dominated on offense with excellent shooting from forward Anthony Huggins and guard Jordan Byrd. In the second half, the T.C. Williams big men effectively boxed out West Potomac, making it nearly impossible for the Wolverines to grab a rebound.

West Potomac point guard Brandon Pressley still challenged the Titans though, with high-energy, quick drives to the basket and solid passing. Pressley connected with guard Randal Brobbey to bring the Wolverines fighting back, 49-42, with just 3:22 left in the game
