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 four seasons and has averaged 25 wins a year during that time. In 2009 we advanced to the WNIT second round, and the previous season we advanced to the WNIT third round. Those two teams both finished with 24-10 records. In 2007 we finished 27-6 and earned an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament. During that season we broke into the Top 25 in both the Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll, ranking as high as 22nd in the AP Poll. 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 53-5 record over the past four 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

BROOKS' CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Feb. 9, 2003 - Believe It!

“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 leagueleading 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.

JMU 98, Old Dominion 95, OT

“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. 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. With ODU ahead 78-65, 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.

“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.”

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

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.

BROOKS' 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.”

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 a 1+1 foul shot for a 51-49 JMU lead.

Feb. 11, 2005 - Benvenuto’s Layup Sends Game to Overtime

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.

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.

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.

“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.”

Benvenuto’s score capped a comeback in which JMU outscored Hofstra 16-9 in the final 6:29 to overcome a seven-deficit. 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 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.

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. JMU players hit five of six free throws in the final 12.4 seconds as the Dukes completed a perfect (13-0) home season.


BROOKS' CAREER HIGHLIGHTS 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. 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. 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. “I told (my players), ‘When the smoke clears, I want to see some hair-dos 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.

March 10, 2006 - Dukes Eke Out Win over Delaware in CAA Semifinals JMU 61, Delaware 59

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.” 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.

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

77 77


BROOKS' CAREER HIGHLIGHTS 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.

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.

“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. 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. “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.

Nov. 27, 2007 - Nation’s Longest Win Streak Continues with Victory over Nationally-Ranked Colonials

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

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.

March 12, 2007 - NCAA Asks Dukes to Dance

The Dukes improved to 5-0 and extended the nation’s longest Division I home winning streak to 29 games.

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.

JMU 80, George Washington 55 It was a long time coming.

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.” 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.

March 22, 2008 - Dukes Rally for WNIT Win at Indiana JMU 86, Indiana 81, OT

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. 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. 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. “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.”

You’re down by seven, 1:16 to go, on your opponent’s home court. You’re playing your second game in less than 48 hours; your opponent had a first-round bye and is more rested. It’s over, right? Maybe not. The Dukes overcame that seven-point deficit and went on to beat Indiana 8681 in overtime in a WNIT second-round game at IU’s Assembly Hall. Freshman Dawn Evans scored eight points in 43 seconds in the final minute of regulation as JMU cut a 69-62 Indiana lead to one, 71-70, with 17 seconds remaining. Evans hit a long three-pointer at the 1:00 mark, was fouled on a three-


BROOKS' CAREER HIGHLIGHTS point attempt and hit all three foul shots with 31.2 seconds left, then converted two more foul shots with 17 seconds to go. In the same span Indiana scored only two points on free throws by Kim Roberson with 28.5 seconds left. With the Dukes trailing 71-70, 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. 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. 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.

April 9, 2008 - Young Picked Eighth in WNBA Draft Surrounded by JMU coach Kenny Brooks and family members, Tamera Young saw her childhood dream realized on WNBA Draft Day in Palm Harbor, Fla. 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 News-Record. “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.”

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 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 opponent-record 36 points. That surpassed the arena opponent 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. " The Dukes' also got a stellar scoring performance off the bench from freshman Brittany Crowell, who hit three three-pointers for the third consecutive game and finished with 10 points.

DR. LINWOOD H. ROSE - PRESIDENT Dr. Linwood H. Rose became the fifth president of James Madison University in September 1998. Under his leadership, JMU has developed a reputation as one of the top public universities in the nation. JMU offers a student-centered atmosphere that blends the best attributes of a liberal arts education, including superlative teaching and high levels of service and support, with the best qualities found at larger doctoral universities, including a wide breadth of programs, world-class faculty, state-of-the-art facilities and opportunities for students to be actively involved in research and discovery. National surveys continue to cite the university’s academic excellence and its emphasis on student involvement and civic engagement. JMU has also established itself as a leader in institutional performance measurement, accountability and assessment of student learning. The university has been recognized for offering proven value and an excellent return on investment to its students. Founded in 1908, the university recently completed a year-long celebration in honor of the institution’s 100th anniversary. Under Dr. Rose’s direction, the university community has inaugurated several new transformational initiatives which will

chart the course for the university’s second century. These initiatives include enhanced diversity, the creation of a comprehensive campus master plan, and the Institute for Stewardship of the Natural World to promote a culture of sustainability on the JMU campus. Central to Dr. Rose’s administration have been efforts to diversify and expand JMU’s funding portfolio. The university successfully completed its first comprehensive capital campaign, benefiting from $70 million in contributions for scholarships, faculty support, and ongoing support for academic, co-curricular, and capital projects. The university’s budget has doubled since 1998, and JMU’s sponsored program activity also has expanded significantly. The university also has developed a strategic partnership with SRI International, a California-based research institute. Since Dr. Rose became president, more than a million square feet of new facilities have been added to the JMU campus and 20 new academic programs, including six doctoral programs, have been approved.

JEFF BOURNE - ATHLETICS DIRECTOR Jeff Bourne i s i n h i s 11 t h y e a r a s J M U ’s athletics director after working as an administrator in successful programs at Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech for 13 years. At JMU, he directs a program that is competitive within the Colonial Athletic Association and at regional and national levels and that has positioned itself to continue play a major role in intercollegiate athletics. Bourne has overseen restructuring to bring JMU’s program into full compliance with gender equity guidelines. He has led plans to insure the academic success of JMU student-athletes and is coordinating a facilities planning process that will provide the university with outstanding competition and fan venues for years to come. JMU will complete a baseball/softball complex for use beginning during the 2009-2010 academic year, and a $50 million expansion project at JMU’s Bridgeforth Stadium/Zane Showker Field will start after the 2009 football season. The football stadium expansion project will increase seating at the facility to nearly 25,000 and will feature major enhancements, including private suites and club level seating, improved concessions and restroom facilities, improved lighting, and a new media facility. Planning is underway for development of recently acquired university property that eventually will become competition and practice sites for several sports. Under Bourne, JMU has developed an enhanced volunteer fundraising network and a point-priority system to recognize donor participation and has implemented programs to increase game attendance and address the needs of athletics infrastructure. A major enhancement of JMU’s sports medicine operation has taken place; yearly fundraising totals have increased significantly; and a strategic planning process to enhance the organizational structure of the athletics division is being implemented. “We’re very proud of the accomplishments we’ve had, and we will continue to take the steps we feel appropriate to allow our programs to be competitive athletically and for our student-athletes to be successful academically,” Bourne said. “Our goals are to win conference championships and to advance our teams to post-season play while adhering to NCAA and conference guidelines and to graduate our student-athletes. “We continue to strengthen the infrastructure and facilities of the athletics program,” he said. “Our support centers and athletics personnel are

dedicated to providing student-athletes with the ticketing, sports information, and radio and television best experience possible at the intercollegiate broadcasts and production.

RADIO NETWORK & TRADITIONS 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 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 has also 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.

Taylor, a native of Orange, Va., is director of university marketing at JMU. The 1985 JMU graduate has covered the Dukes since 1979. From 1980-83 Taylor was the sports director at WAYB in Waynesboro, Va., where his broadcasts won best non-metro sports coverage in the state from Metro Press. “The JMU women’s basketball program is truly one of the outstanding athletic programs that exist in the country,” says Taylor. “I’m very proud to have been able to broadcast JMU games throughout the years.” Schikman, a Brooklyn, N.Y., native, is a 1977 Queens College graduate.

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.

1991 Second Round, East Regional 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. 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.”

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.”
