quick look/traditions A Quick Look At JMU Location: Harrisonburg, Va. 22807 Enrollment: 19,000 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: 109 (69 undergraduate, 31 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). Colors: Purple, Gold Men’s Sports Programs: Baseball, Basketball, Football, Golf, Soccer, Tennis Women’s Sports Programs: Basketball, Cross Country, Field Hockey, Golf, Lacrosse, Soccer, Softball, Swimming and Diving, Tennis, Track and Field (indoor and outdoor), Volleyball

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.

2011-12 JMU Basketball - 9


outlook Who’s Back #22 Tarik Hislop 5-7 Jr. Guard, 10.8 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 1.9 apg The two-year starter has averaged in double figures in scoring in both her JMU seasons -- no mean feat as she has played alongside the CAA’s all-time leading scorer for two years. Hislop was a preseason All-CAA selection as a sophomore and a CAA All-Rookie honoree as a freshman.

#30 Nikki Newman 6-2 Jr. Guard/Forward. 2.6 ppg, 5.6 rpg It’s not a bad thing that Newman’s not a “stat-sheet stuffer.” All those “intangibles” she brings to the court by far make up for that. And by the way, she ranked second on the team in steals and third in assists and blocked shots and was among top 20 rebounders in the CAA last year.

#15 Lauren Whitehurst 6-2 Sr.-r Forward, 6.3 ppg, 6.3 rpg How does a college student earn the moniker “grandma” from her teammates? Well, it’s just because she’s so old, LOL. Two years after transferring to JMU from Boston College, Whitehurst earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology in May 2011. Now she’s a graduate student in psychological sciences with her eye on an eventual Ph.D. in clinical neuropsychology. On the court? She tied the program record for games played while averaging better than six points and six rebounds a game last season.

#25 Kanita Shepherd 6-3 Sr. Forward, 4.2 ppg, 3.0 rpg

Lauren Whitehurst

For the second straight year Shepherd was leading the Dukes in blocked shots. However, her 2010-11 season ended prematurely as a knee injury sidelined her after nine games. As she continues her recovery, she is unlikely to play until midseason.

#34 Kiara Francisco 5-10 Sr. Guard/Forward, 3.1 ppg, 1.5 rpg

Tarik Hislop

She’s made 83 game appearances in her three seasons as a Duke. Off the court she’s a chemistry major who excels in the classroom, earning CAA AllAcademic Honorable Mention in 2011.

#35 Rachel Connely 6-4 Sr. Center, 1.8 ppg, 1.1 rpg She’s not only at 6-4 the tallest member of the team but has been recognized with the team’s “unselfish contribution” award the last three seasons. Connely has played in 56 games in her three JMU seasons.

#20 Kirby Burkholder 5-11 So. Guard/Forward, 1.3 ppg, 1.8 rpg Burkholder joins former Turner Ashby High School teammate Nikki Newman as favorites of area basketball fans who attend Dukes’ games to support the two “Valley girls.” As a freshman she not only played in 24 games and won the team’s most improved player award but also made the Dean’s List.

5-10 So. Guard, 1.0 ppg, 1.2 ppg The former Peninsula District Player of the Year at Hampton High School played in 17 games for the Dukes as a freshman.

Who’s New #10 Tanica Anderson 5-5 Jr. Guard Like her returning JMU teammates, Anderson also has won back-to-back championships. Hers came at Midland (Texas) College, where the Chaparrals captured Western Junior College Athletic Conference titles in 2010 and 2011. And yes, Anderson might have to wear a particular hairstyle to reach 5-5, but as they say, “great things come in small packages.”

#3 Toia Giggetts

and on the “watch lists” for all three national Player of the Year awards. She led the Dukes to two CAA titles while dealing with a kidney disorder and inspiring youngsters in her role as an ambassador for The NephCure Foundation.

Jalissa Taylor 6-3 Forward/Center, 3.2 ppg, 6.5 rpg She may be best remembered for her warm smile, her work ethic in the classroom and the goose bumps she caused with her rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” But don’t overlook Taylor’s contributions to the Dukes’ successful run to back-to-back CAA Championships and three straight appearances in the CAA title game, as she started 76 games, grabbed just under 700 rebounds and scored nearly 550 points in her career.

Courtney Hamner 5-10 Guard, 8.5 ppg, 4.5 rpg

The two-time All-Tidewater Region selection helped lead Lake Taylor High School to the Virginia group AAA state championship her junior season and to a state runner-up finish her senior season. She also played on Boo Williams’ elite AAU team.

As a senior Hamner finally hit her stride after recovering from mid-career knee surgery. The Dukes’ speedster and three-time recipient of the team’s “hustle award” was rewarded with CAA All-Tournament honors. She averaged 14.0 points and 7.0 rebounds while hitting 63 percent (10-16) from 3-point range in three CAA Tournament games.

#0 Jasmine Gill

Lauren Jimenez

6-1 Jr. -r Guard

6-4 Center, 14.1 ppg, 8.5 rpg

The transfer from Boston College sat out last season due to NCAA transfer rules. She averaged 6.5 points and 4.1 rebounds her sophomore year at BC, and as a BC freshman she played in 30 games for the Eagles’ WNIT semifinalist team.

The Dukes’ leading rebounder and second-leading scorer last season, Jimenez battled injuries throughout her college career. She finished it out in style, however, earning All-CAA First Team recognition and winning CAA All-Tournament honors for the second year in a row.

6-0 Fr. Forward

#24 Jazmon Gwathmey

Super Bowl Streak

Kenny Brooks’ teams are undefeated (8-0) in games played on Super Bowl Sunday. This year’s Super Bowl opponent is George Mason, on Feb. 5 at the JMU Convocation Center. (NOTE: The Dukes’ 2010 Super Bowl Sunday game against Drexel was postponed to Monday due to a snowstorm.)

Attendance Records Continue to Fall Last season JMU set a program record for average attendance (2,587). The Dukes’ fans have set attendance average records in seven of coach Kenny Brooks’ nine seasons.

6-2 Fr. Guard Gwathmey earned state Player of the Year honors after leading Liberty High School to the Virginia group AA state championship last year.

#14 Briana Jones 6-2 Fr. Forward/Center Jones made her mark at Whitefield Academy, helping the Wolfpack to its second-ever state tournament appearance and earning all-region and All-Cobb County honors four years.

#21 Crystal Ross 6-3 Fr. Forward/Center The Philly native played her high school ball at Smyrna (Del.) High School, where she twice earned All-State Honorable Mention while leading the Eagles to a state runner-up finish her junior year and a Henlopen Conference championship her senior season.

Longest JMU winning streak under Brooks 20-win seasons in JMU basketball history Average number of JMU wins per year in first nine seasons under Brooks

5-7 Point Guard, 23.1 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 4.5 apg The CAA’s career scoring leader literally re-wrote the JMU record book and finished her career as the most decorated athlete in the program’s history. Evans was a finalist for the Nancy Lieberman Award for the nation’s top point guard, a two-time Associated Press Honorable Mention All-America,

Outtakes with Kanita Shepherd

Q: Describe head coach Kenny Brooks in ONE word, and explain why. KS: Unpredictable. Right when you think you have him figured out, he confuses you again. I love you, Coach! Q: What is your favorite part about traveling with the team to away games? KS: I love my teammates, so any time that we can all be together laughing and joking, it is a guaranteed good time! Q: What makes JMU special to you? KS: The entire atmosphere. I love the fan base, the professors, the scenery, the athletes… I could go on and on! Q: Who’s the best dancer on the team? Q: If you could play another sport, what would it be? KS: I would probably run track because that was my first love, even though I hate running. Q: How has your JMU basketball experience impacted your life? KS: It’s been a great experience. I’ve learned that being on the JMU women’s basketball team comes with a lot of notoriety so it allows me to stay grounded and humble because you never know who is watching. Q: What made JMU the best choice for you during the recruiting process? KS: It just felt right. There is no other way to put it. Q: If you were asked to be on America’s Got Talent, what would your talent be? KS: Oh singing without a doubt. My voice is angelic, LOL, just playing. I’m not the best singer, but I sure would try. Q: What is your hometown most known for? KS: In the past years, we have produced a lot of athletes that I have gone to high school with, like John Wall of the NBA, Brandon Banks of the Redskins, Chris Culliver of the 49ers, David West of the NBA. Q: Describe how you feel to be back-to-back CAA champions. KS: It’s a great sense of accomplishment, and I’m honored to be a part of it! Q: Who’s your favorite person to room with on road trips and why? KS: I loved rooming with the (2011) seniors (Dawn, Ja, Lo, and Court) but I really enjoy Kirby Burkholder! Every time we room together my cheeks hurt from laughing, LOL. Q: What is your favorite class at JMU? KS: Any on-line class because I don’t have to sit in the classroom LOL. In all honesty, I have to go with anatomy! It was a lot of hard work but worth it. I got to learn from the cadavers. Q: What’s the biggest thing you learned from your freshman year? KS: You have to push past “the wall” that you don’t think you can get past. Pushing though is a key determining factor in what transforms good players into great players. Q: What would be your dream role if you could star in any movie? KS: I would love to play the lead role in the biography of my paternal grandmother, because she was a strong, hard-working woman who raised 11 children by herself and provided for them.

Outtakes with Nikki Newman

Q: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what are three things you couldn’t live without? NN: I couldn’t be without my family, a basketball and music! Q: Describe head coach Kenny Brooks in ONE word, and explain why. NN: SKINNY! Just kidding, he’s dedicated. He puts 100% into everything he does. Whether it’s coaching, recruiting, or being another father figure and role model. Q: What is your favorite part about traveling with the team to away games? NN: Movies and arguing about which one we are going to watch when half the time, the whole team is asleep or doing something else by the end of the movie!! Q: What makes JMU special to you? NN: Since my parents and brother went here, it just felt right. I love being close to home, and it makes it 10 times better that JMU has such a beautiful campus. Q: If you could play another sport, what would it be? NN: Volleyball! I can get up over the net. Q: How has your JMU basketball experience impacted your life? NN: It has definitely been an experience, a good one at that! You learn a lot about yourself and others. When you’re with at least 10 others girls throughout a whole year with not much of a break, you see a lot of new things and experience a lot of new things, but it has been fun! Q: What made JMU the best choice for you during the recruiting process? NN: I loved the atmosphere at the games. Without a doubt, we have the best fans ever. Also, I loved the coaching staff, the girls and even though I wasn’t going far from home, it felt just like home! Q: If you were asked to be on America’s Got Talent, what would your talent be? NN: I think everyone could agree that my horse noise is pretty legit. Q: Describe how you feel to be back-to-back CAA champions. NN: It’s kind of a feeling that’s indescribable. My first two years here I’ve gotten a ring, and it would only be right to finish my next two years with a ring too. Q: What are you looking forward to the most for the upcoming season? NN: Winning another championship! Getting back in the gym and playing with a group of girls who have worked really hard to achieve the goals that we have set for ourselves is what I’m looking forward to. Q: What’s the biggest thing you learned from your freshman year? NN: No matter how much you think you are in shape and ready, you’re not. You can try to convince yourself as much as you want to, but reality will hit you the second you start preseason with GDUB (strength coach Greg Werner)! Ouch. Q: What would be your dream role if you could star in any movie? NN: Either something filled with action and adrenaline, or something super serious and suspenseful! I could play pretty much any role.

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.

career highlights

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 seven-point 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.”

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

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

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.

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. 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.

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 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’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.

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. 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 fivefor-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.

“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.

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.

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 differencemaker 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.

Nov. 18, 2009 - Dukes Open Season with Come-from-Behind 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.

Kanita Shepherd

Winning after trailing by 16 points makes it even sweeter.

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.

Playing before a season-opening 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. 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 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.

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.

Kiara Francisco

“She’s a phenomenal player,” Brooks 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.”

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

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.

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

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.”

Nov. 26, 2010 - Overtime is Kenny Brooks’ Time JMU 76, Montana 69, OT

Evans scored 13 of her points in the last four minutes to present JMU coach Kenny Brooks with a fitting birthday present.

Kenny Brooks has a knack for guiding his teams to come-frombehind back wins, and his record in overtime contests through the 2010-11 season is an impressive 11-7.

Her 42 points included 6-for-12 from 3-point range and 12-for-13 from the foul line. She scored 13 of her team’s final 16 points and handed out eight assists.

Under Brooks, the Dukes have won six of the last seven games that have been decided in overtime, including an early-season 2010 victory over Montana in a tournament on the Mexican Riviera.

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.

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. Finally, the Dukes tied the game at 64 on a Lauren Jimenez put-back with 13 seconds left in regulation.

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

Courtney Hamner

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. 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.

With 35 seconds to play Evans knocked down a long threepointer to give the Dukes an 81-80 lead, their first since the 19:23 mark in the first half. 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.

Dec. 20, 2010 Evans Scores School-Record 42 in Comeback Win over Virginia

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.

JMU 82, Virginia 80

“If there are three guards better than her in the country, let me see them,” coach Kenny Brooks said. “I don’t know any other player that I’ve had or seen that can really respond the way she did. It’s probably the most remarkable performance that I’ve seen by anybody with me being on the floor.”

It was just a magical night. On her coach’s 42nd birthday, Dawn Evans scored a school-record 42 points to lead the Dukes to an 82-80 come-from-behind win over Virginia at the JMU Convocation Center.

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.”

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 led 51-47 with 11:41 remaining.

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.

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.”

No. 8 James Madison 71, No. 1 Virginia 62 1986 Second Round, East Regional

“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.”

Her season scoring totals of 551 (1987-88) and 545 (1986-87) rank first and second, respectively, on JMU’s all time list.

Marjorie Berkley (’45) was a multi-sport participant as a JMU undergraduate and later was a successful coach and athletic administrator.

Shelia A. Moorman guided JMU basketball teams to unprecedented success in 15 seasons (1982-97). Her teams won more than 300 games, played in six NCAA Tournaments (1986-89, 91, 96) and won four conference titles. She engineered two of the bigger upsets in NCAA Tournament history -- a 1991 victory at top-ranked Penn State and a 1986 win at regionally top-seeded Virginia -- and her teams were the first JMU basketball squads to be ranked in the national Top 25 polls. Four of Moorman’s six NCAA Tournament teams advanced to the “Sweet 16” (1986-88, 91), and the Dukes won four straight Colonial Athletic Association Tournament titles (1986-89).

Missy Dudley Heft (‘89) was a member of four JMU teams that had combined records of 108-16, won four consecutive CAA championships and advanced in NCAA Tournament play four times, including three times to the “Sweet 16.” She was named to the CAA Team of the Decade (1985-95) and scored 1,284 career points.

2004 Julie Franken Graessle (’87) helped lead the JMU basketball team to its first-ever Top 20 national ranking, two CAA championships (1986, 1987) and two trips to the NCAA “Sweet 16” (1986, 1987). The Columbus, Ohio, native is one of only three players in JMU history to have career totals of more than 1,000 points and 800 rebounds. One of the best passing forwards in JMU history, she handed out 201 career assists. Alisa Harris Gantz, who played on three CAA champion and NCAA “Sweet 16” (1986-88) teams, was recognized in 2005 by the Colonial Athletic Association as a basketball “Legend” from its member schools.

2006 Alisa Harris (‘88) had 1,473 points and 683 rebounds in a career during which JMU compiled a 104-19 overall record, won three CAA titles, and advanced three times to the “Sweet 16” of the NCAA Tournament. She is among only four Dukes with career totals of more than 1,400 points and 600 rebounds, and she currently ranks seventh on the team’s career scoring list and 12th on its all-time rebounding list.
