QUICK LOOK / TRADITIONS A Quick Look At JMU Location: Harrisonburg, Va. 22807 Enrollment: 18,971 Founded: 1908 (as State Normal and Industrial School for Women at Harrisonburg; became the State Normal School for Women at Harrisonburg in 1914, the State Teachers College at Harrisonburg in 1924, Madison College in 1938 and James Madison University in 1977). The university is named for James Madison, the fourth president of the United States and primary author of the U.S. Constitution. Affiliation: State university of the Commonwealth of Virginia Academic Divisions: College of Arts and Letters, College of Business, College of Education, College of Integrated Science and Technology, College of Science and Mathematics, College of Visual and Performing Arts, The Graduate School, General Education Degree Programs: 108 (69 undergraduate, 30 master’s, 2 educational specialist, 7 doctoral) Full-time Employees: 2,200 (1,100 faculty and administrators; 1,100 staff ) Campus: 111 major buildings on 712 acres Athletic Affiliations: National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Athletic Programs: 18 varsity sports (6 for men, 12 for women) Nickname: Dukes (in honor of Dr. Samuel P. Duke, second president of the University, 1919-1949).

Nicknames, Traditions JMU’s athletic teams use the nickname “Dukes” in honor of Dr. Samuel P. Duke, university president from 1919-1949. Men’s athletics began at JMU during Duke’s tenure (men first enrolled in the regular season in 1946 as day students.) Women’s teams were known by several names until “Duchesses” became prevalent in the early 1940s. That name was dropped in 1982 when all of JMU’s teams became “Dukes.” The school colors, purple and gold, were selected during JMU’s first session in 1909-10 from the colors used by the institution’s two literary societies, Lanier and Lee. The Lanier Society’s colors were violet and white and the Lee’s gray and gold. Violet soon was replaced by purple, which was easier to obtain for use for pennants and other decorations. The school mascot, a bulldog with a purple and gold cape and a crown, was adopted in 1971. The bulldog is the traditional pet of royalty such as a duke. “Duke Dog” entertains at JMU athletic contests and other university special events and also takes part in a variety of community activities and events. JMU also has used several living bulldogs as university mascots. Duke Dog won the “popular” vote during the 2004 Capital One Mascot of the Year competition, compiling an 11-0 record in head-to-head voting against other college mascots.

Pre-season Look Who’s Back Dawn Evans 5-7 Sr. Point Guard, 24.6 ppg, 2.6 rpg, 4.6 apg As a junior Evans was on the “watch lists” for all three national Player of the Year awards, and she’s predicted to be a first-round WNBA draft choice in 2011. She’s been among the leading scorers in the NCAA the last two years and she’s on pace to become the CAA’s career scoring leader… all this despite being diagnosed last year with a kidney disorder .

Tarik Hislop 5-7 So. Guard, 10.3 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 5.2 apg She was a CAA All-Rookie Team selection as a freshman, when she started 32 of 33 games and was the Dukes’ second-leading scorer.

Jalissa Taylor 6-3 Sr. Forward/Center, 5.2 ppg, 6.6 rpg The Dukes’ 2010 rebounding leader, who got a late start on her basketball career, continues to improve her game. She’s started 57 games the last two seasons.

Nikki Newman 6-2 So. Guard/Forward. 2.9 ppg, 4.9 rpg She does all the little things that may go unnoticed. Newman started the last 14 games of her freshman season.

Courtney Hamner 5-10 Sr. Guard, 3.4 ppg, 2.1 rpg Last year Hamner was slowed by off-season knee surgery. However, the Dukes’ speedster and two-time recipient of the team’s “hustle award” should finish her collegiate career in style.

Lauren Jimenez 6-4 Sr. Center, 9.0 ppg, 5.0 rpg She recovered from knee and ankle surgery to rank third on the team in scoring and rebounding last season. Jimenez earned all-tournament honors after averaging 12.7 points and 6.3 rebounds in JMU’s CAA tournament championship run.

Kanita Shepherd 6-3 Jr. Forward, 4.5 ppg, 3.9 rpg She started seven games and led the Dukes in blocked shots with 32 last season.

Kiara Francisco 5-10 Jr. Guard/Forward, 4.8 ppg, 3.4 rpg The quiet chemistry major who excels in the classroom makes significant contributions on the basketball court as well.

Rachel Connely 6-4 Jr. Center, 0.7 ppg, 0.8 rpg The tallest member of the team, Rachel has played in 36 games in her first two seasons as a Duke.

2010-11 JMU basketball ˜ 10


Pre-season Look Who’s New Kirby Burkholder 5-11 Fr. Guard/Forward The three-time all-state player from nearby Turner Ashby High School was the West Team MVP in the Virginia Senior All-Star Game last summer. Among her school records were career points (1,657) and rebounds (985).

Debbie Smith 5-10 Fr. Guard She was Peninsula District Player of the Year at two-time district champion Hampton (Va.) High School, where she averaged 21.2 points a game as a senior. She finished her career with 1,639 career points.

Lauren Whitehurst 6-2 Jr.-r Forward The transfer from Boston College was recognized as a leader during her redshirt season in 2009-10, when she was one of the Dukes’ team captains. In high school she was an All-Tidewater and All-Southeastern District player at Indian River in Chesapeake, Va.

Who’s Gone Sarah Williams 6-0 Guard, 8.6 ppg, 6.5 rpg The lone senior on last year’s team led the Dukes in steals and developed into one of the team’s top rebounders.

Who’s Waiting till Next Year Jasmine Gill 6-1 Jr. Guard Gill was All-Metro 4A Conference Player of the Year as a senior at Page High School in Greensboro, N.C., in 2008. The transfer from Boston College will redshirt this season while sitting out due to NCAA transfer rules.

South of the Border

For the second time in three years the Dukes will play in the Caribbean Challenge, a Thanksgiving tournament held on the east coast of Mexico. The site of the 2010 tournament is the Aventura Spa Palace, an all-inclusive resort in the Riviera Maya area. JMU will play Iowa on Nov. 25 and Montana on Nov. 26. Other teams in the tournament include Purdue, Utah, Penn State, Hartford, Wisconsin Green Bay and Florida Gulf Coast.

The Dukes played Boston College and Eastern Michigan in the 2008 Caribbean Challenge, which was played in the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun.

However, in games played in the eight years since Kenny Brooks became coach at JMU, ODU holds a 12-8 lead in the series. • JMU has won five of its last six games against the Monarchs. • The Dukes’ Jan. 25, 2009 72-67 win at ODU was JMU’s first victory on the Monarchs’ home court since 1991. It ended ODU’s 37-game home winning streak against CAA teams and was only the third home loss the Monarchs had suffered to a CAA team in its first 18 seasons of league play. • JMU has won the last two games it played on the Monarchs’ home court. The Dukes’ last win was a 65-59 victory on Feb. 21, 2010.

DAWN EVANS Evans Volunteering as an Ambassador with The NephCure Foundation With her coach and many of her teammates in attendance, Dawn Evans was introduced as an ambassador for The NephCure Foundation at a news conference held at JMU on April 30, 2010. As an ambassador Evans will help to raise awareness of the kidney diseases FSGS (Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis) and Nephrotic Syndrome (NS). The Dukes’ guard was diagnosed with FSGS, a disease that attacks the kidney’s filtering system, in December 2009. The NephCure Foundation, a Philadelphia-based non-profit organization, serves as a resource for families dealing with kidney diseases and funds research seeking treatment and a cure. At the April news conference NephCure Foundation development manager Nadia Stadnycki presented Evans with a NephCure Foundation shirt in JMU purple. Stadnycki told those attending the event that FSGS affects as many as 100,000 adults. She said that The NephCure Foundation is working with the National Institutes of Health on a $10 million initiative to launch clinical trials with FSGS sufferers. JMU head coach Kenny Brooks said that Evans “has been an inspiration to us and has made (our team) come together as a family. Evans acknowledged that coping with FSGS “has been an emotional roller coaster” and called the NephCure ambassador announcement “a wonderful moment.” NephCure’s other ambassadors include sports figures Alonzo Mourning and Herschel Walker, along with Jesse Jackson, Jr.

career highlights

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 threepoint 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

career highlights 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 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 seven-deficit.

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.”

Dickinson finished with a careerhigh 34 points, including two free throws with 2.3 seconds left in overtime to clinch the win.

March 2, 2006 - Dukes Complete 13-0 Home Season 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.

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

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 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. JMU’s Shirley McCall was fouled on the ensuing in-bounds play. With eight seconds on the clock she made the first but missed the second of

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.

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.

career highlights Dickinson hit the second of the technical free throws and then was fouled again. She made two free throws with 10.6 seconds left to put the game out of reach at 73-68.

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.

Jasmin Lawrence used her patented crossover move to score the game-winning 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 off-balance, 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.”

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 Andrea stepped forward. She had hastily created a “certificate” Benvenuto 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. 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 secondseeded 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.”

career highlights 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 News-Record. 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.

Alexis and teammates Tamera Young and Andrea Meredith Alexis Benvenuto won All-CAA (left) recognition. Dickinson, Benvenuto and Jennifer Brown received all-academic accolades, and Shirley McCall was voted to the all-defensive team.

Meredith Alexis, the league’s top rebounder and second-leading scorer, as well as the CAA’s and JMU’s career rebounding leader, walked away with Player of the Year honors.

career highlights March 12, 2007 NCAA Asks Dukes to Dance

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. 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 NationallyRanked 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 11th-ranked 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 outrebounded 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. “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.”

In the final three minutes the Dukes converted nine of 12 free-throw attempts, led by Jasmin Lawrence, who was five-for-six 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-for-3 from three-point range, and 3-for-6 at the foul line.


career highlights In overtime the Dukes controlled the opening jump ball, and Dukes’ senior Jasmin Lawrence knocked down a three-pointer 10 seconds into the period. JMU led the rest of the way, outscoring the Hoosiers 14-9 in the extra period.

“We stayed together and we made plays,” said coach Kenny Brooks. “We did a fantastic job on the boards (out-rebounding ODU 60-41), and our defense kept them in check.”

Evans scored 38 points, including 26 in the second half, and tied the JMU scoring record set by teammate Young in JMU’s WNIT first-round win over Radford. For the game, Evans was 10-for-19 from the field, including six-for-12 from three-point range. She hit all 12 of her free throws.

In the same span Indiana scored only two points on free throws by Kim Roberson with 28.5 seconds left. With the Dukes trailing 7170, Evans then fouled Jamie Braun with 13.3 seconds left and IU in the double bonus. Braun missed the first foul shot but made the second to put the Hoosiers ahead 72-70.

JMU senior Tamera Young then drove the baseline for a layup with 6.2 seconds remaining to tie the game at 72-72, sending the contest into overtime.

Young, the first player in school history to be drafted, was selected by the expansion team Atlanta Dream. The Dukes’ and the CAA’s all-time leading scorer was the eighth pick in the first round. “It was so unreal,” Young was quoted in the Harrisonburg NewsRecord. “Tears started falling out of my eyes.” “She put us on the map,” Brooks told the News-Record. “But even more so today than she did in the past.”


career highlights 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.

Georgetown led by as many as 16 points in the first half (46-30 at 1:04) and was up by 14 (46-32) at halftime. Evans made five threes, many coming from well beyond the threepoint line “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.

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.

Nov. 18, 2009 Dukes Open Season with Come-fromBehind Win over Georgetown JMU 79, Georgetown 76 Beating a Big East opponent, which later that season would make it into the national Top 25 polls, isn’t a bad way to start your season.

“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 Kanita Shepherd 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 differencemaker in the game.”

Winning after trailing by 16 points makes it even sweeter.

Tech went in front 28-24 with the final five points of the opening half and led 50-39 with 8:55 left and 54-44 at 7:45 before JMU controlled play the rest of the way.

Playing before a seasonopening record crowd of 2,530, the Dukes didn’t take their first lead over Georgetown until Kanita Shepherd hit two free throws with 1:16 left to put JMU on top 72-71.

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 Kiara Francisco 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.

“She’s a phenomenal player,” Brooks Nikki Newman said of Evans. “People (ask) ‘Are you comfortable with her shooting 28 times?’ Absolutely. ‘Are you comfortable with her shooting from the Duke Dog paw?’ Absolutely. Because I’ve never coached a player like that, who has range and the ability to score like that.”

Evans, who finished with a game-high 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.

career highlights Dec. 6, 2009 - Dukes Win at NationallyRanked Virginia Behind Record Performance by Evans JMU 72, Old Dominion 67 “Dawn Evans is just too much for everybody to deal with.” Those comments by Virginia head coach Debbie Ryan summed up Evans’ school and John Paul Jones Arena-record 38-point performance in the Dukes’ 75-73 win at #14/#15-ranked Virginia.

Dawn Evans

The Dukes led by six, 69-63, with 3:20 to play and then held off the Cavaliers down the stretch. JMU matched Virginia basket for basket over the next minute, as each team scored twice. A driving layup by freshman Tarik Hislop put the Dukes’ lead at 73-67 with 2:08 left.

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. 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.

Feb. 21, 2010 - Dukes Win Again at ODU JMU 65, Old Dominion 59 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.

It was JMU’s first win over the Cavaliers since 1986, when the Dukes upset Virginia in the second round of the NCAA tournament.

career highlights March 14, 2010 - Dukes Claim CAA Title and NCAA Tournament Bid JMU 67, Old Dominion 53 Conference champion and NCAA-bound. 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 topseeded Old Dominion 6753 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 alltournament team, and Tarik Hislop also reached double figures in scoring for the Dukes with 13 and 11 points, respectively.

Lauren Jimenez (right) 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,” head coach Kenny Brooks, said. “It’s a wonderful, wonderful accomplishment for a wonderful group.”

Two JMU Wins Among NCAA’s Biggest Upsets

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.

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 led 51-47 with 11:41 remaining.

2010-11 JMU basketball ˜ 68

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 lay-up 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 three-point 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.”
