welcome to basketball Welcome to JMU women’s basketball! It is an honor and a joy for me as an alumnus to be the head coach at the university that gave me so much. JMU is nationally ranked in many categories and with the combination of great people and necessary resources, JMU is truly a unique institution for higher learning. Our basketball team has qualified for postseason play the last eight seasons and has averaged 25 wins a year during that time. In 2013, we advanced to the WNIT Quarterfinals with wins over N.C. A&T, N.C. State and Fordham in front of great home crowds just a year removed from a run to the WNIT Championship game. In 2010 and 2011, we played in the NCAA Tournament after playing the two previous seasons in the WNIT. In 2007, we finished 27-6 and earned an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. Twice in our tenure in 2006-07 and 2009-10, the Dukes have broken into the top 25 in the both the Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll, ranking as high as 22nd in the AP Poll in 2007. Nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, JMU boasts tranquility, safety, and a community that is committed to JMU athletics. Our on-campus facility, the Convocation Center, is one of the better “home court advantages” in the country. Combined with the atmosphere and fan support, this environment has helped us to a 113-16 record over the past eight years. That included back-to-back undefeated home seasons and a 30-game home winning streak that ranked first in NCAA Division I. This is a very exciting time to be associated with JMU women’s basketball! I hope you will join us for a season full of excitement Sincerely, Kenny Brooks Head Basketball Coach 2012-13 JMU Basketball 2013-14 JMU Basketball -2 -2

outlook

Who’s Back #30 Nikki Newman 6-2 r-Sr. Guard/Forward, 5.7 ppg, 4.1 rpg The do-it-all guard/forward returns for her redshirt season after missing the second half of 2012-13 with an injury. In 2012, she won the CAA Defensive Player of the Year honor and coming into the season, Newman ranks second in school history in blocked shots (12) and 15th in rebounds (672). But what may be most remarkable about Nikki Newman is her versatility. She’s likely the only player in JMU history to have played all five positions during her career, giving coach Kenny Brooks several options should he need them.

#20 Kirby Burkholder 6-0 Sr. Guard, 15.0 ppg, 9.1 rpg, 1.7 apg The only returning player among last season’s First Team All-CAA honorees, Burkholder averaged 15.0 points and 9.1 rebounds per game while starting all 36 games a year ago. She comes into her senior season ranked second in school history in three-pointers with 181 and needs just five points to reach 1,000 for her career. The sharp shooter made 35% of her threepoint attempts and 88% of her free throws last year. In 2012-13 she was voted First Team All-CAA, Richmond Times-Dispatch Second Team All-State and VaSID First Team All-State. In addition, Burkholder collected CAA Second Team All-Academic honors on her way to winning JMU’s co-Most Valuable Player Award.

Jazmon Gwathmey

#3 Toia Giggetts 6-0 Jr. Forward, 7.5 ppg, 6.4 rpg After setting a JMU freshman record for games played with 36, Giggetts started 30 games for the Dukes as a sophomore. She improved both her scoring and rebounding averages, dropping in 7.5 points and grabbing 6.4 rebounds a game.

#21 Crystal Ross 6-3 Jr. Forward/Center, 3.1 ppg, 3.3 rpg Ross appeared in all 36 games for JMU as a sophomore, starting 14 of them. Quiet and unassuming off the court but a fighter on it she was fourth on the squad with 65 offensive rebounds and 19 blocked shots. She was named a JMU Athletic Director Scholar-Athlete, proving herself to be a two-way student-athlete.

Toia Giggetts

#24 Jazmon Gwathmey 6-2 r-So. Guard, 6.2 ppg, 5.5 rpg After sitting out her first season with the Dukes to take a redshirt, Gwathmey made a big impact on the team in her second year in Harrisonburg. The longarmed guard became JMU’s primary defensive stopper following the injury to Newman and contributed 6.2 points and 5.5 rebounds per game to be named to the CAA All-Rookie team. Her 34 blocks is the 14thbest total by a Duke and is the second-highest total by a JMU freshman.

#12 Precious Hall

outlook

5-8 So. Guard, 9.6 ppg, 3.1 rpg, 1.5 apg Living up to her high standing as one of the nation’s top recruits, Hall stepped in to be a unanimous selection for CAA Rookie of the Year. She was a five-time CAA Rookie of the Week, averaging 9.6 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game for the Dukes. Not surprisingly, Hall was named JMU’s Newcomer of the Year. She came on especially strong during CAA play, averaging 12.4 points and 3.9 rebounds per game.

#2 Destiny Jones 6-0 So. Forward, 2.0 ppg, 1.6 rpg Jones averaged 6.8 minutes per game coming off the Dukes’ bench in 28 games as a rookie. She supplied 2.0 points and 1.6 rebounds. An extremely strong forward, Jones shot 45% from the field while pulling 19 offensive rebounds in her abbreviated action.

#32 Angela Mickens

All-State recognition. Griffin was named the Most Valuable player at the Virginia High School Coaches Association All-Star game. Nicknamed “Dee Dee”, Griffin averaged 15.1 points, 12.6 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.4 blocks and 2.4 steals per game as a senior.

#15 Amani Tatum 5-7 Fr. Guard Another prospect from New York City landed by Coach Brooks, Tatum played at Archbishop Molloy High School in Queens, N.Y. She was named the Queens Borough High School Girls’ Player of the Year and All-Metro First Team in 2013. The New York Post named her All-First Team and she finished her high school career with over 1,200 points, averaging 18 points and seven assists per game as a senior.

Who’s Gone #22 Tarik Hislop 5-7 Guard, 16.4 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 3.5 apg

Who’s New

Hislop wrapped up a fantastic career with the Dukes by being named First Team All-CAA and Richmond Times-Dispatch First Team All-State as a senior. She averaged 16.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists as the Dukes’ point guard and was named the ESPN National Player of the Week after scoring a tournament-high 74 points during the Cancun Challenge. In her career, Hislop set JMU records for games started (139), games played (140), consecutive games played (140 and consecutive games started. She also ranks third in school history in points (1,847) trailing only Dawn Evans and Tamera Young at JMU.

#33 Lauren Okafor

#25 Kanita Shepherd

6-3 r-Jr. Center, 4.4 ppg, 5.4 rpg

6-3 Forward, 3.5 ppg, 3.1 rpg

Okafor comes to JMU by way of the Big East’s Providence College, where she played two full seasons for the Friars. She tallied a team-leading 35 blocks and ranked second in rebounding in 2011-12. Okafor will make her presence known after only participating in team practices last year while sitting out due to NCAA transfer rules.

Finally working her way back onto the court following issues with knee injuries, Shepherd averaged 3.5 points and 3.1 rebounds per game as a redshirt senior. She finished her career ranked 11th in blocked shots at JMU and was named CAA All-Academic Honorable Mention as a redshirt senior.

5-7 So. Guard, 2.8 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 1.9 apg Another local girl on the JMU roster, Mickens saw action in 28 games, starting one in her freshman campaign. The lightning-fast point guard managed to hand out 53 assists and swipe 25 steals despite playing in just 13.2 minutes per game. With a year of development and the graduation of All-CAA guard Tarik Hislop, look for Mickens role to expand in 201314.

Tournament Time

JMU is scheduled to play in three regular season tournaments this season. The first trip sees JMU travel to Naples, Fla., to play in the Gulf Coast Showcase. The Dukes take on UCLA the day after Thanksgiving in the tournament’s opening round. Consolation, semifinal and championship rounds follow over the next two days with teams from Middle Tennessee State, Mississippi State, Grand Canyon University, Southeastern Louisiana, North Carolina State and Wright State as potential opponents. Two weeks later, Madison ventures north to Queens, N.Y., to play in the St. John’s Classic. JMU opens against Prairie View A&M on Dec. 14 before taking on tournament-host St. John’s the next day. The final tournament takes place in the JMU Convocation Center as the Dukes welcome Ohio University, Norfolk State and UMBC to Harrisonburg for the two-day event.

Home Sweet Home

JMU fans will have plenty of opportunities to see the Dukes at home or close to home this season. Five of the Dukes’ 14 non-conference games are scheduled at the JMU Convocation Center. In addition, JMU plays non-conference games at local rivals Richmond and Liberty during the opening month of the season. In total, JMU plays 13 games at home, including eight in CAA play. Part of the home schedule includes the JMU Invitational. Madison opens the tournament against Ohio before playing either NSU or UMBC the next day as part of a JMU basketball triple header.

#45 Samantha Mitchell 5-7 Sr. Guard Mitchell joins the JMU roster as a senior walk-on after previously working as a team manager. At Abingdon High School, Mitchell was named the Female Athlete of the Year and was a First Team All-Southwest District and Second Team All-Western Region selection.

#5 Allysia Rohlehr 5-9 Jr. Guard Rohlehr transferred to JMU from Pensacola State College after starting her career at Albany. She was a 2013 All-Panhandle Conference Second Team and an FCSAA Conference All-Academic selection. In high school, she played at St. John the Baptist in Island Park, N.Y., where she was a McDonald’s All-American nominee in 2011.

Former Teammates Together Again

Redshirt senior Nikki Newman and senior Kirby Burkholder have only spent one year not playing together since the two were teammates on Turner Ashby High School’s varsity team in 2006-07. Newman was the Massanutten District Player of the Year at TA in 2009, and Burkholder won the same honor in 2008 and 2010. The two were members of the Knights’ 2009 state runner-up team. Prior to playing together at TA, Newman and Burkholder also played several years of AAU basketball together. Freshmen Precious Hall and Destiny Jones both hail from the state of Florida, where they played on the same Florida Essence AAU team.

Kenny Brooks’ Coaching Tree

In addition to mentoring great players on the court, Coach Brooks has helped assistant coaches land jobs throughout the nation. Former assistant coach Krista Kilburn-Steveskey took the head job at Hofstra back in 2006. Jackie Carson returned to her alma mater at Furman to become the Paladins head coach after serving as one of Brooks’ assistants for five seasons. Lindsay Edmonds is starting her first season as an assistant coach at North Carolina State after four years in Harrisonburg.

All JMU Coaching Staff

In 2013-14 the JMU women’s basketball team will feature a coaching staff made up entirely of JMU graduates. Head Coach Kenny Brooks assembled a staff that, like him, spent some of their formative years in Harrisonburg. Associate Head Coach Sean O’Regan was a manager for the JMU men’s team while assistant coaches Jennifer Brown and Sarah Williams both played for Brooks at JMU. Even Director of Basketball Operations Tim Clark attended JMU.

Super Bowl Streak

Kenny Brooks’ teams are undefeated (10-0) in games played on Super Bowl Sunday. This season, however, JMU does not play on Super Bowl Sunday and instead plays three games in six days starting two days after the Super Bowl on Feb. 4. (NOTE: The Dukes’ 2010 Super Bowl Sunday game against Drexel was postponed to Monday due to a snowstorm.)

Outtakes with Nikki Newman • What would you do if you won the lottery? Definitely dish it out to my family, especially my parents with as much as they have given me; donate to charity, and THEN buy a new car and go on a nice vacation!!! • If you were stranded on a deserted island, what one thing could you not live without? Music! But realistically, water. • What is your go-to meal to cook? Chicken and rice • What’s your favorite restaurant to eat at on the road? Maggianno’s • How would you describe our coaching staff at JMU as a whole? ALUM! Easy going and always approachable. They are willing to do whatever they have to do to help you out, regardless if it is about basketball or not. • What is your funniest Coach Brooks story? Not one in particular, but it is really funny when he makes up words in practice….then he swears that it is actually a word, but it really isn’t.

• Describe our pep band and what they mean to our game atmosphere. THE BEST!!! They make games so much fun. Walking down onto the court before the game even starts, they are already getting in the other team’s heads. They are seriously the best… and they get the Convo rocking! • When you grab your phone after practice, what app do you go to first? One of my social media ones… I always talk about how much I don’t like them, but it is addicting. • Who is your favorite WNBA player and why? Tamera Young! JMU Alum representing!!!! Whenever I watch her play, she always seems so even-keeled and just out there playing, not worrying about making mistakes. • If you could switch places with Coach Brooks for a day, what would you do? Go shopping somewhere and spend money!!!!

Outtakes with Kirby Burkholder • What would you do if you won the lottery? Shop a little, give a little, save a lot • What three words would you use to describe yourself? Goofy, hardworking, hungry • What’s your favorite restaurant to eat at on the road? BOTTOM OF THE SEA! In Philly! The seafood there is the best! • How would you describe our coaching staff at JMU as a whole? AMAZING! More than just coaches, literally some of the best people in my life to go to/help with anything! • What is your funniest Coach Brooks story? Probably telling him to project his voice in a practice when I was a freshman since nobody could hear him, and he always used to pick on me for my voice. It ended in a free throw lineand-back sprint for the team. • Describe our pep band and what they mean to our game atmosphere. THE BEST EVER! No other pep band ANYWHERE compares. They are the best hands down and add so much to our games and make the atmosphere that much more electric! We love them! • What is your pre-game ritual? I’m not superstitious, that takes too much energy and second guessing yourself. I just like to listen to music, and I always crave chocolate before the game. • Why did you choose JMU over all other schools? Best offer I had, but couldn’t turn down this coaching staff, chemistry of the team, past success, and the all around amazing JMU atmosphere. • Who is your favorite NBA player and why? Stephen Curry is my new favorite shooter to watch and learn from, I really enjoy watching him play and try to blend his game into mine. • If you could switch places with Coach Brooks for a day, what would you do? Ride around in his Jeep and eat twinkies.

Feb. 9, 2003 - Believe It! JMU 98, Old Dominion 95, OT

“Anyone who knows me knows this is my dream job. This is not a job for me, this is something special. I feel like I’m one of the luckiest people in the world.”

It was Kenny Brooks’ refuse-to-lose attitude that inspired his players to overcome a 16-point deficit and post a thrilling 98-95 overtime win over league-leading Old Dominion.

After guiding the Dukes to 16 wins in 26 games as an interim head coach, the 34-year-old Brooks earned the endorsement of JMU Director of Athletics Jeff Bourne.

“The whole time we were down, Coach Brooks just kept telling us to believe -- believe it was going to be a special night. The encouragement he gave us kept us confident, kept us from dropping our heads,” said senior Shanna Price.

“I reflected back on the season and his performance as a coach, his ability to capture the energy of players,” Bourne said. “I think he did a great job with it. This is a very positive day for JMU athletics. He will take this program to where we envision it going in the future.”

ODU had led 39-34 at halftime and was ahead by as many as 16 points on three occasions. The Monarchs held a 72-56 advantage with 5:39 to play in regulation.

Jan. 6, 2004 Freshman Class Leads Comeback Win JMU 71, Charlotte 64

With ODU ahead 7865, Lynn Liburd nailed back-to-back three-pointers at 3:12 and 2:45, then point guard Jess Cichowicz stole the ball and fed Liburd for a layup at 2:04. Liburd’s eight points began a 20-7 JMU scoring run that included seven points by Price and five by Cichowicz. ODU led 85-77 after a three-point play by Okeisha Howard with 1:07 remaining in regulation. Cichowicz’s three-point play at 1:01 and a three-point play by Price at 0:50 cut the margin to 85-83. After ODU junior Monique Coker missed two foul shots with 28.6 seconds left, Price hit a six-foot jumper with 7.6 seconds on the clock to send the game to overtime tied at 85. Price scored a career-high 34 points and tallied six of the Dukes’ points in overtime, when JMU outscored the Monarchs 13-10.

March 21, 2003 - Living Out a Dream “This is my dream job.” That was what Kenny Brooks told a gathering of news media and fans at the news conference announcing his hiring as the Dukes’ head coach. “I’m very fortunate today that I’m actually living out my dream,” Brooks said. “It’s a wonderful day for me and my family… it’s a very special day for me. James Madison has given me so much, and I’m glad to give back in any way that I can.

After this game, you knew for sure Kenny Brooks’ freshman class was going to be something special. The Dukes’ first-year players scored 41 of JMU’s 46 second-half points as their team rallied from a 16-point second-half deficit to beat Charlotte 71-64. Freshman Lesley Dickinson scored a game-high 20 points and classmate Shirley McCall added a career-high 19 points to pace JMU to the victory. McCall jump-started the Dukes early in the second half. With JMU trailing 50-34 at 15:26, McCall scored six points in a 9-0 run that cut the margin to seven (50-43). After a Charlotte layup, JMU trimmed the lead to four (52-48) on Dickinson’s three-point play followed by McCall’s driving layup. The 49ers then got their lead back to eight with a 6-2 scoring spurt that gave them a 58-50 lead at 7:28.

But JMU scored the game’s next 18 points, led by eight points by another freshman, Meredith Alexis. That gave the Dukes an insurmountable 68-58 lead with 1:04 left on the clock.

Dickinson scored 16 and McCall 13 in the second period. Alexis finished with a then-career-high 17 points, 13 of which came in the second half, and had a game-high 12 rebounds. “I was very proud the way we responded at halftime,” Brooks said. “We could have very well just retreated and played back on our heels, but we didn’t. We stood our ground and started attacking.”

Feb. 11, 2005 - Benvenuto’s Layup Sends Game to Overtime JMU 73, Hofstra 71, OT It was a career night for Lesley Dickinson, but it was teammate Andrea Benvenuto who made sure the evening ended on a winning note.

Drexel’s Jackie Falson was fouled as she Meredith Alexis (left) drove to the basket with 1.4 seconds remaining. She made only the second free throw, and Alexis was then fouled and scored JMU’s final point with eight-tenths of a second left. McCall led the Dukes with 13 points, and Alexis finished with 12 points, all scored in the second half. Andrea Benvenuto added 11 points, including a 16-footer with one second on the shot clock with 1:36 left.

With Hofstra ahead 60-58 after hitting two free throws with 5.8 seconds remaining, Benvenuto drove the length of the court and scored on a layup as time expired to force overtime. Benvenuto’s score capped a comeback in which JMU outscored Hofstra 16-9 in the final 6:29 to overcome a sevenpoint deficit.

JMU’s Shirley McCall was fouled on the ensuing inbounds play. With eight seconds on the clock she made the first but missed the second of a 1+1 foul shot for a 51-49 JMU lead.

“We gave it our all. We didn’t hold anything back,” said coach Kenny Brooks. “We left everything out on the court, and as a result we got a victory.”

Feb. 10, 2006 Dukes Rally for Win at Daskalakis Center

JMU 75, Old Dominion 68 In a game with a wild ending the Dukes beat Old Dominion 75-68 to lock up the number two seed for the upcoming CAA Tournament. JMU players hit five of six free throws in the final 12.4 seconds as the Dukes completed a perfect (13-0) home season.

JMU 52, Drexel 50

The Purple and Gold led 70-65 after a dramatic play that ended with a layup by the Dukes’ Tamera Young with 24 seconds to play. With Lesley Dickinson trapped by a double-team in the backcourt, she threw the ball ahead to Meredith Alexis. Alexis managed to tip the ball to Young, who then raced down court and scored.

JMU’s first-ever win at one of the league’s toughest venues was a nail-biting come-from-behind victory with a lot of drama. Meredith Alexis scored nine of the Dukes’ last 13 points as her team escaped with a 52-50 win at Drexel’s Daskalakis Center. It was JMU’s first victory in five visits to Drexel. The Dukes trailed 31-18 at the 19:01 mark of the second half and did not take the lead for good until Alexis converted both ends of a 1+1 free throw with 4:33 left, putting JMU up 41-40. Alexis then hit a 16-foot jumper at 3:30 and made a steal and dribbled down court for a layup at 3:02 to give JMU its biggest lead, 45-40. However, Drexel’s Narissa Suber scored seven points as the Dragons outscored JMU 9-6 in a span of 2:35. Her driving layup with 9.5 seconds left got Drexel within one point at 50-49.

Tamera Young

A three-pointer by ODU with 15.2 seconds remaining cut the lead to 70-68. JMU then lost possession while in-bounding the ball, and ODU’s TJ Jordan got control of the ball and called timeout in a scramble in the free throw lane. However, ODU had no timeouts remaining, and the Monarchs were assessed with a technical foul, giving JMU two free throws and possession of the ball following the foul shots.

March 10, 2006 - Dukes Eke Out Win over Delaware in CAA Semifinals

The defending CAA champion Monarchs lost their first league game of the year and saw their 16-game win streak come to an end. Meanwhile the Dukes tied a school record with a perfect 13-0 home season record.

JMU 61, Delaware 59

“I told (my players), ‘When the smoke clears, I want to see some hairdos messed up.’ It was good, a couple of times we had that,” said coach Kenny Brooks.

March 7, 2006 - The Highest Honor The women Kenny Brooks coaches hold him in high regard. In fact, he was the unanimous choice for 2006 CAA Coach of the Year award -- by his players. That year the CAA honor, voted on by the league’s head coaches and members of the news media, went to a coach other than Brooks. The JMU players, who thought their coach was a leading candidate for the award, were visibly disappointed. Then, shortly after the CAA awards banquet, another ceremony took place on the team bus. It was then that point guard Andrea Benvenuto stepped forward. She had hastily created a “certificate” on a piece of paper. In an impromptu ceremony, she expressed her team’s appreciation for Brooks and what he had provided the team as its coach. A rousing round of applause followed.

Jasmin Lawrence used her patented crossover move to score the gamewinning layup with 1.9 seconds remaining, lifting the Dukes to a 61-59 win over Delaware in the CAA tournament semifinals at George Mason’s Patriot Center. The Dukes had several chances to score in the final minute but missed two shots before the ball deflected off of a Delaware player and out of bounds to JMU with 13.9 seconds left. The Dukes worked the ball around off the in-bounds play until Lawrence drove the lane to sink an offbalance, acrobatic layup. “Jasmin is a New York City girl,” said coach Kenny Brooks. “She’s got that crossover, and she plays that one-on-one - that Earl Monroe-style basketball.”

Andrea Benvenuto

The moment was a testament to the high regard in which Brooks is held by the women he coaches.

A key play by Kisha Stokes had tied the game at 59 with 1:23 remaining. Stokes rebounded an errant JMU three-point attempt as the shot clock expired and scored on a put-back. As Delaware tried to counter, Chrissy Fisher was called for a walk, and the ball was back in JMU’s possession with just over a minute to go. That set the stage for Lawrence, and her basket sent the second-seeded Dukes to the league championship game. Ironically, Lawrence got her chance to shine in only her second career start. She moved into the Dukes’ starting lineup the previous game after an injury sidelined three-time All-CAA guard Lesley Dickinson for the CAA Tournament.

Jan. 29, 2007 - Dukes Move into the National Rankings “I wanted to jump up and scream, ‘Hey everybody, we’re in the Top 25!”’ That was senior Meredith Alexis’ reaction when she learned that JMU had moved into the Associated Press Top 25 poll. The 17-2 Dukes, who had received votes in the AP poll the previous three weeks, cracked the Top 25 for the first time since the final poll of the 1987-88 season, when they were 14th. “Obviously we were very excited to be ranked in the Top 25,” said coach Kenny Brooks. “It’s been a goal of ours all along. To get this national recognition is well-deserving of how hard the players have been working.”

Feb. 1, 2007 - Dukes Hand Old Dominion Its Worst League Loss Ever JMU 79, Old Dominion 50 It was JMU’s 10th win in a row. It marked the 23rd straight time the Dukes had won at home. It ended the opponent’s nine-game victory streak. And it kept the Dukes in first place in the CAA standings. But what really had the Convocation Center crowd of nearly 3,000 abuzz was that JMU handed Old Dominion its worst-ever CAA loss, beating the Monarchs by a whopping 29 points (79-50). The margin more than doubled the Monarchs’ previous biggest conference loss margin of 14 points. The Dukes scored the game’s first 12 points and led by as many as 15 midway through the opening half. The Monarchs managed to close the margin to six (31-25) before the half ended with JMU ahead 33-25. In the second period the Dukes used a 20-3 run over a seven-minute span to take a 57-30 lead at 11:06. After that JMU never let its lead slip into single digits and led by as many as 33 points.

“We felt like we were the better team, and we really wanted to go out and show it,” said Shirley McCall, whose defense held ODU leading scorer TJ Jordan without a point. “We wanted to make a statement, and I feel like we made it.” “Everybody just got into it,” said senior Meredith Alexis of the game’s atmosphere. “The Convo was just shaking the whole time.”

March 7, 2007 - CAA Awards Top Honors to Three Dukes The Dukes came away from the 2007 CAA awards banquet with enough hardware to open a small trophy shop.

“I saw my name go up on the screen and I had to put my head in my hands just to compose myself,” Alexis told the Harrisonburg News-Record. “I was just so excited.” Head coach Kenny Brooks, under whose guidance the Dukes returned to the national stage with Top 25 national ranking, was selected Coach of the Year. “It’s an honor, something I’ll cherish the rest of my life,” Brooks told the NewsRecord. Lesley Dickinson received the prestigious Dean Ehlers Leadership Award, which honors a player who “embodies the highest standards of leadership, integrity and sportsmanship in conjunction with her academic athletic achievement,” Later, Dickinson would be among 13 recipients of an NCAA postgraduate scholarship.

Tamera Young scored the opening basket of the second half for a 13-point lead. The Colonials responded with six unanswered points to trim the deficit to 39-32 at 17:24. That was as close as GW would get.

For four years Meredith Alexis, Andrea Benvenuto, Lesley Dickinson and Shirley McCall had been mainstays on the Dukes’ basketball team. Finally they were rewarded for their efforts with an at-large invitation to the NCAA Tournament. “When they first came here, their first practice, I can remember basketballs were going all over the place,” coach Kenny Brooks remembered. “You didn’t know what was going to happen to get to this point. And for them to be able to experience something as special as being invited to the NCAA tournament, it’s joy.” It was a landmark day for the Colonial Athletic Association as well, which would be represented by three teams in the NCAA Tournament -- a first for the league.

Nov. 27, 2007 - Nation’s Longest Win Streak Continues with Victory over Nationally-Ranked Colonials JMU 80, George Washington 55

March 2, 2008 Seniors Go Out with an Upset Victory over #11 Old Dominion JMU 76, Old Dominion 63 Make that three in a row. Senior Day was a special one, as the Dukes topped nationally 11thranked Old Dominion 76-63 at the JMU Convocation Center. It marked the third straight season JMU had beaten ODU on the Dukes’ home court. “To go out on top, win your last home game, that’s like the best story.” said Jennifer Brown, one of three seniors honored prior to tip-off.

It was a long time coming.

JMU went on a 14-5 scoring run in the last 2:35 to seal the victory, ending a 19-game Monarch winning streak and handing ODU its first league loss of the year.

JMU’s 80-55 home victory over George Washington (#14 USA Today/ESPN, #16 AP) was the Dukes’ first win over a Top 25 team since 1991.

In a game that had eight ties and nine lead changes, JMU took the lead for good on a three-pointer by Tamera Young with 8:48 to play. That put the Dukes ahead 51-49 and began a run in which JMU outscored ODU 12-2 and out-rebounded the Monarchs 8-2 in a span of 3:39. ODU connected on only one of three field goals at the start of the run and then committed turnovers on its next four possessions.

The Dukes improved to 5-0 and extended the nation’s longest Division I home winning streak to 29 games. The 25-point victory also likely silenced any doubters who might have thought the Dukes were rebuilding after graduating four starters from last season.

In the final three minutes the Dukes converted nine of 12 free-throw attempts, led by Jasmin Lawrence, who was five-forsix at the line. JMU also got a layup from Young and a three-pointer by Dawn Evans in the closing seconds. Meanwhile, ODU was 0-for-6 from the field, including 0-for3 from three-point range, and 3-for-6 at the foul line.

“That’s awesome. What more can you say?” said senior Jennifer Brown “Especially this team, how hard we worked this preseason, knowing everything that everyone was going to say about us.” JMU broke away in the final 4:05 of the first half, outscoring GW 12-3. Nina Uqdah finished off the run with a put-back as time expired for a 37-26 halftime lead.

Jan. 25, 2009 - Dukes End ODU Streak with Record Performance by Evans JMU 72, Old Dominion 67

It certainly wasn’t your typical Sunday afternoon CAA game at Old Dominion’s Ted Constant Center, although it started off looking that way. ODU scored the game’s first seven points and jumped out to a 14-3 lead. At the 12:15 mark the Monarchs were ahead 17-10. At that point, however, the Dukes scored 11 unanswered points, with Dawn Evans netting nine of them, to pull ahead to a 21-17 advantage with 9:41 to play. JMU never trailed after that point en route to a rare victory by a CAA opponent on the Monarchs’ home floor.

“The crazy thing is, when she lets them go right there, I think they’re going in. I really do,” Brooks said of Evans’ long-range shooting. “And call me crazy because I’m the coach that lets her shoot that shot, but I see her make that shot (every day in practice).”

Nov. 22, 2009 - JMU Downs Virginia Tech JMU 66, Virginia Tech 59 Dawn Evans scored 27 points, including 14 during a 27-9 JMU scoring run to end the game, as the Dukes defeated Virginia Tech 66-59 at the JMU Convocation Center. “We were in control for a good 30 minutes of that 40-minute game,” Tech coach Beth Dunkenberger said in the post-game press conference. “Then unfortunately down the stretch their best player proved why she is one of the best players in the country. She took over. She controlled the offense, she got the ball where she wanted, she got everybody organized and she hit shots. She did what great players do, and I thought that she was the great difference-maker in the game.”

The Dukes’ 72-67 victory in a regionally-televised game ended ODU’s 37-game home winning streak against CAA opponents. It was only the third home loss the Monarchs had suffered to a CAA team in 18 seasons of league play (164-3 record). Evans finished with a Constant Center record 36 points. That surpassed the arena scoring record held by former national Player of the Year Candace Parker of Tennessee, who scored 32 against the Monarchs. It was Evans’ sixth career 30-point game and fifth 30-point game of the year, both team records. “I can’t even sit here and say that I’m wowed because I’ve seen her do it so many times,” said coach Kenny Brooks.

Evans had four twopoint field goals and two three-pointers during the final 8:21 and put the Dukes in front to stay, 58-56, with a layup with 1:58 left.

Then a three-pointer by Sugar Rodgers put the Hoyas ahead 74-72 with 1:03 to play. However, Dawn Evans then nailed a three with 45.1 seconds on the clock, giving the Dukes a 75-74 lead that they would not surrender. Evans, who finished with a gamehigh 29 points, scored seven of those in the final minute of the game, and Shepherd ‘s block of a shot by Rodgers with 32 seconds left was a key defensive play in the win.

Because I’ve never coached a player like that, who has range and the ability to score like that.”

Evans made five threes, many coming from well beyond the threepoint line.

JMU sprinted out to a 30-15 halftime lead and went on to beat leagueleading Old Dominion 65-59 in front of an ODU season-high 5,179 fans at the Constant Convocation Center. It was the Dukes’ second straight win over the Monarchs on ODU’s home court. Dawn Evans led all players with 28 points and seven assists and moved into the CAA’s top 10 career points list at ninth place with 1,754. She scored 21 of her points in the second half and was 9-for-9 at the foul line, all in the second period. Kiara Francisco came off the bench to hit 4-for-6 from the field and finished with nine points. Courtney Hamner contributed eight points and was 3-for-5 from the floor. After ODU’s Shadasia Green knocked down a three-pointer to tie the game at 11 at 11:17, JMU ran off 15 straight points to build a 26-11 lead at 2:38. Six Dukes scored during the run, led by five points by Nikki Newman. After Green’s three at 11:17, JMU held ODU scoreless until Jackie Cook hit a free throw at 2:36 to make the score 26-12. During that span the Monarchs were 0-for-14 from the field and committed five turnovers. Cook’s foul shot was one of only four points scored by the Monarchs in the final 11 minutes of the half. The Dukes entered intermission ahead 30-15.

Virginia All-America Monica Wright hit a 12-foot jumper at 1:49, cutting the lead to 73-69. Evans missed a layup on the Dukes’ ensuing possession, and Wright controlled the rebound. On the other end of the court, the Cavaliers’ Telia McCall was fouled and converted two free throws to get UVa within two, 73-71, with 1:17 on the clock. Evans then banked a six-foot shot into the net to put the Dukes up 75-71 with 52 seconds remaining. Virginia again cut the lead to two, 75-73, as Paulisha Kellum scored on a driving layup with 43.2 seconds to go.

Dawn Evans

On JMU’s possession, the Dukes worked the shot clock down, but when Evans drove into the lane and attempted to pass the ball, McCall came up with the ball with 16 seconds left. With five seconds to go, the Cavs’ China Crosby drove for a layup and missed. JMU senior Sarah Williams and a Virginia player got their hands on the rebound, a jump ball was called, and the possession arrow was in JMU’s favor.

Dawn Evans

Evans was fouled and went to the line for a 1+1 with 2.3 seconds left. She missed the shot, and Virginia rebounded but was only able to launch a desperation shot that missed the mark.

Those are the coveted titles the JMU wore after winning the CAA Championship. The Dukes earned their latest distinctions by building an early lead and going on to defeat top-seeded Old Dominion 67-53 at the JMU Convocation Center. JMU, the tournament’s No. 2 seed, gave up a three-point field goal during the game’s opening possession but scored the contest’s next 14 points and led the rest of the way. The Dukes were up 43-29 at halftime, raised their margin to 51-32 with just less than 12 minutes to play and survived a rally that got Old Dominion to within five points with 7:24 left in the game.

Tournament Most Outstanding Player Dawn Evans led the Dukes with a game-high 25 points and seven assists in 37 minutes. Lauren Jimenez, who joined Evans on the all-tournament team, and Tarik Hislop also reached double figures in scoring for the Dukes with 13 and 11 points, respectively. JMU sealed the championship by outscoring the Monarchs 13-4 during the game’s final 7:08 and allowing only two field goals over the final eight minutes. “I’ve dreamt about this moment for a very long time, and now that it’s here, it’s surreal,” coach Kenny Brooks, said. “It’s a wonderful, wonderful accomplishment for a wonderful group.”

JMU 76, Montana 69, OT Kenny Brooks has a knack for guiding his teams to comefrom-behind wins, and his teams have also established a tradition of prevailing when contests go to overtime.

The Dukes trailed 76-63, their biggest deficit of the game, when Evans hit a three-pointer with 3:59 left to cut the Cavaliers’ lead to 10. After a pair of Evans free throws and a Cavalier jumper made it 78-68, JMU used a 10-0 run over the next 1:32, including five points from Evans, to tie the game with 1:24 remaining.

One such overtime comeback was an early-season 2010 victory over Montana in a tournament on the Maya Riviera area of Mexico. JMU trailed the Grizzlies by 14 points with 13:49 remaining, but buoyed by six three-pointers (three by Dawn Evans, two by Courtney Hamner and one by Tarik Hislop), the Dukes chipped away at the deficit. Three of those treys came in the final 5:16 and were scored after JMU forced Montana turnovers.

Ariana Moorer and Ataira Franklin each hit a free throw for Virginia to give the Cavaliers a 80-78 lead with 45 seconds left.

Finally, the Dukes tied the game at 64 on a Lauren Jimenez put-back with 13 seconds left in regulation. The extra period was all JMU, as Hamner nailed back-to-back three-pointers to open overtime play, and the Dukes outscored Montana 12-5 to pull out the win.

Courtney Hamner

Evans led all players with 24 points, and Jimenez came off the bench to score 18 points in only her second game back since being sidelined with an injury. Hamner, who hit a career-high five three-pointers, finished with 15 points, just two below her career high. Tarik Hislop added 10 points, and Nikki Newman grabbed a career-high and game-high 14 rebounds. The Dukes connected on 11 three-pointers, just one below the school record, and tied a school record with eight second-half treys.

Virginia had two attempts on its next possession, but missed both shots, and JMU’s Jalissa Taylor came up with the rebound and was fouled. She hit a free throw with 9.6 seconds left for an 82-80 Dukes’ advantage. Evans broke two other records -- the CAA career marks for three-pointers made and attempted. Her career totals of 325 and 951 surpassed the league records of 323 and 941 held by Old Dominion’s TJ Jordan (2004-08). Her 42-point performance eclipsed the JMU record of 38 that Evans herself shared with former Duke and current WNBA player Tamera Young.

Joining Evans on the all-tournament team were senior Lauren Jimenez, who registered her 10th double-double of the season with 12 points and 14 rebounds, and senior Courtney Hamner, who scored 15 points and tied her career-high with five three-point field goals. In the opening half JMU led by as many as 15 as the Dukes went 8-of-13 from beyond the arc, tying the school record for threes in a half. The Dukes led by 15 with 5:07 remaining in the contest, before the Blue Hens had one last push, scoring 15 of the next 19 points to cut the JMU lead to 63-59 with less than a minute remaining. That was as close as Delaware would get, however, as JMU went 8-of-8 from the free throw line in the last 47 seconds, including six straight makes from Tarik Hislop. Perhaps most importantly, for a Dukes’ basketball program that is truly family, the four “big sisters” -- Evans, Jimenez, Hamner and senior classmate Jalissa Taylor -- completed their careers earning another championship ring. “For the seniors, we wanted to do everything we could to be sure they went out winners,” said coach Kenny Brooks. “I couldn’t be happier for this group of kids; they worked so hard for me. I can’t even put it into words how happy and special I feel right now.”

March 25, 2012 Burkholder’s Threes Lift JMU

JMU 84, Wake Forest 76, OT

JMU 68, Virginia 59

Down by 17? No problem.

You’re been out of the game with foul trouble for nearly 10 minutes, so of course when you return to the floor it might take a few minutes for you to hit your stride.

For the 13th time in Kenny Brooks’ 10-year coaching career, his team won a game after trailing by 16 or more points. The 17-point deficit in this second-round WNIT game vs. Wake Forest, however, was the largest a Brooks team had faced before rallying to win.

Not Kirby Burkholder. Just 10 seconds after stepping back on the court she knocked down the first of back-to-back 3-pointers to start a 15-4 scoring run that enabled her trailing team to clinch a win over Virginia in the WNIT quarterfinals.

Most of the fans at the JMU Convocation Center likely figured that Wake Forest had a win locked up when the Demon Deacons led 70-67 with 21 seconds remaining in regulation.

In the go-ahead run Nikki Newman found her former high-school teammate in the left corner and delivered a pass to an open Burkholder, who hit her first 3-pointer at 4:02 to put the Dukes up 5655. After UVa turned the ball over on a walk, Newman again found Burkholder, this time in the right corner, and she hit another 3 at 3:29 to extend the JMU lead to 59-55.

But a lapse in Wake’s defense left Nikki Newman open, and she launched a 3-pointer that fell through the net with 6.6 seconds on the clock. In overtime JMU outscored Wake 14-6. It was freshman Toia Giggetts’ time to shine, as she personally outscored the Demon Deacons 6-2 in a span of 1:01. Her 16-foot jumper at 1:38 put the Dukes up 78-76, and after a Wake turnover she drove for a layup at 1:09 for an 80-76 JMU lead.

With the Cavaliers fouling to regain possession in the final minutes, JMU players combined to hit 7-of-8 free throws in the final 2:38, including four by Tarik Hislop and two by Lauren Whitehurst. Burkholder also scored on a layup with the shot clock winding down, as she picked up a loose ball on the baseline and weaved through the defense to give JMU a 65-59 lead with 1:00 left.

Wake missed three field goals in the final 32 seconds, while

Nikki Newman Tarik Hislop and Kirby Burkholder each converted two foul shots to ice the game.

The extraperiod win was the seventh straight overtime victory by a Brooks team and the Dukes’ third overtime win of the season.

“This was a game between two very similar teams that rely on their defense and try to muster up some offense. The intensity was tremendous,” said Brooks. “It’s one of the most electric atmospheres since I’ve been here. “I challenged Kirby at halftime. (I told her) if you don’t shoot the ball, we can’t win this game. I was really proud of her demeanor (when she re-entered the game late), the way she stepped back in. They lost her; they forgot she was in the game, because she sat for 10 minutes. She got wide-open threes. As soon as they left her hand I knew they were going in.”

March 28, 2012 Balanced Effort Leads Dukes to Berth in WNIT Final JMU 74, Syracuse 71

Getting contributions from multiple players had been a key to the Dukes’ success all season long. It was again a critical factor in JMU’s victory over Syracuse in the WNIT semifinals, along with the support of a crowd of more than 4,000 at the JMU Convocation Center. Four Dukes scored in double figures, led by Kirby Burkholder with 18; she also had seven rebounds. The Dukes got 14 points from Tarik Hislop, who was 9-for-12 at the foul line. Lauren Whitehurst contributed 12 points, three blocked shots and seven rebounds. Then there was statsheet stuffer Nikki Newman, who had her fourth season and career double-double with 10 points and a team-high 11 rebounds to go along with a teamhigh four assists, two blocked shots and two steals. In a game that had 10 lead changes and 10 ties, the Orange Nikki Newman held its largest lead of the night, 47-40, with 16:02 to play. JMU climbed back into the game by outscoring Syracuse 13-4 in a span of 6:19 to take the lead for good at 53-51 on two free throws by Jasmine Gill with 9:38 remaining. With JMU holding a 61-59 lead with under six minutes to play, Newman scored on a layup to start a 7-3 Dukes’ run. She then hit a 3-pointer at 3:36 to cap the run and give her team a 70-62 advantage, the Dukes’ biggest lead of the night.

Lauren Whitehurst out of bounds on the baseline, giving the Dukes possession with 50 seconds left. Hislop hit two of four foul shots in the final 49 seconds to offset Syracuse’s only points, a three-point play by Alexander, for the final 74-71 margin. The win gave the Dukes a school-record 29th victory as JMU won its ninth consecutive home game and remained unbeaten (13-0) in home postseason games (WNIT 9-0, NCAA 4-0). “We won because we made more plays,” said Brooks. “During the time when we got down (by seven), I thought Kirby stepped up and was huge. Nikki Newman stepped up and had a couple of plays that were tremendous. We battled all night. Nobody backed down, and that’s the reason we won. “

Syracuse, however, roared back, scoring six unanswered points. Then Elashier Hall made a defensive play to give her team possession and then scored on a three-point play to get the Orange within two, 70-68, with 1:27 to play.

But Newman fed Whitehurst a pass for layup with 1:13 left for a 72-68 lead, then blocked a shot by Kayla Alexander with 57 seconds left. Syracuse missed a 3-pointer, got the rebound, but lost the ball

When you join the JMU women’s basketball team, you join the Dukes’ family for life. Head coach Kenny Brooks and his team made that clear as they found a way to surprise former standout and current Chicago Sky member Tamera Young at her high school hall of fame induction.

After Green Bay took a 79-76 lead on two Adrian Ritchie free throws with 7.5 seconds to go, Hislop hit a 3-pointer with 2.3 seconds left to tie the game at 79 and send the contest to an extra five minutes.

The Dukes were scheduled for a Sunday afternoon game at UNCW on Jan. 6, so the plan was to leave Saturday morning. But when the staff found out Young’s induction was scheduled for Friday night in Wilmington, they did some shuffling and moved their departure time up by a day.

The lead changed hands five times in overtime, but it was a Burkholder 3-pointer with 24.7 seconds that gave the Dukes the lead for good at 87-86.

When they arrived at Laney High School, the entire team filed off the bus and sneaked in the back door before unbeknownst to the honoree.

Green Bay’s Stephanie Sension missed twice from close range on her team’s next possession, and Hislop got the rebound on the second miss and was fouled. Her free throws with seven-tenths of a second remaining gave JMU the final 89-86 margin.

““It was one of the biggest surprises, I had no idea they were coming!” Young gushed. “Before my name was called and I went out to the floor, Coach Brooks walks in. And then the rest of the girls walked in, so it was just a shock. It was an indescribable Tamera Young feeling because it was so unexpected and the way it happened. I was just so excited to have them there.”

Four JMU players scored in double figures, including Burkholder, who added 16 points along with eight rebounds. Crystal

Two JMU Wins Among NCAA’s Biggest Upsets

This upset started out to be a blowout all the way... for the Nittany Lions. Ranked No. 1 late in the season and in front of 6,087 faithful, 29-1 Penn State roared out to an 11-0 lead before James Madison head coach Shelia Moorman had to do something that she did not want to do, ask for a timeout. “The crowd just went bananas,” Moorman said. “The first thing that we did out of the timeout was turn the ball over to Penn State.” It didn’t get any better for James Madison. Penn State stretched its lead to 24-9 with 12:01 to go in the first half. Nothing was working offensively, so Moorman stressed defense... and little by little it began to work. James Madison outscored the Nittany Lions, 20-17, in the last 12 minutes of the half to cut the lead to 41-29 at halftime. The heat put on the Penn State offense continued in the second half. James Madison outscored the Nittany Lions, 22-6, in the first eight minutes of the second half and the Dukes

By Kevin Goodwin Ozarks Sports Magazine Excerpted from 1993 NCAA Regional game program. Upsets in the NCAA basketball championship provide some of the most amazing stories in sports every year. Teams with little recognition bound into the NCAA field with nothing to lose and nothing but history to make and mystify the nation for 40 minutes on their way to making their dreams come true. When dreams become reality, a lifetime of memories are made, for players and coaches alike. The NCAA women’s basketball championship is finally getting some of the national respect it richly deserves. But, due to the lack of exposure in the past, some of the biggest women’s basketball upsets in the NCAA championship have not been given full recognition. Here is a look at teams in the women’s basketball championship who have stood up against the incredible odds... and won.

led 51-47 with 11:41 remaining. From that point on, the game was close, but Penn State never regained the lead. Penn State closed the gap to 73-71 on Tanya Garner’s layup with 53 seconds left and got the ball back with 19 seconds remaining. Penn State’s crowd was begging for the win, but Jeanine Michealsen blocked Garner’s threepoint attempt with one second left to preserve the win for James Madison. Moorman said the game was the best women’s basketball has to offer. “It really doesn’t get any better than that game,” Moorman said. “The quality of effort, fans and basketball is unmatched. The crowd never shut up for 40 minutes. It was fabulous to be a part of that experience. Anybody who was involved in that game will never forget it.”

“Go ahead and put on the slipper.” That’s what coach Shelia Moorman said to her squad after the Dukes scored their first upset in the NCAA championship, defeating Virginia in Charlottesville, 71-62. Virginia had drubbed James Madison by double digits in their first meeting of the year. “In 1986, I had a bunch of sophomores and juniors,” Moorman said. “Our goal was to get to the NCAA championship the next year.” As it would against Penn State five years later, defense helped James Madison win on this night. The Cavaliers led, 14-9, with 11:26 remaining in the first half when the Dukes held Virginia to one field goal while outscoring the Cavaliers, 24-8, the rest of the period to take a 33-22 lead at halftime. “We were holding our breath on the bench,” Moorman said. “This was a great Virginia team. We knew a run was coming sometime.” Moorman draws distinct parallels in her two upsets in NCAA Championship action. “We played teams that were very close to home,” Moorman said. “These kids played each other in high school, in camps and many other places. There was a certain familiarity that they had with each other.”
